Summer Reading

I've been reading so much this summer but these two so far are my favorites.  I LOVE historical fiction.  It's my favorite.   Dates and politics and all that jazz don't mean anything unless you make history personal....and when it's all put into a good book...I can't get enough.

  12. Oooh thanks, I need a new book! I just need to make sure they're not depressing. It's hard to find good books that aren't sad, and I just can't get into sad books anymore.

  18. I read Honolulu as you suggested, and requested our library to get Moloka'i. (they had one and not the other... weird. ;) Thanks for the recommendation! I really liked it! Have you read Lisa See's books?
