Okay -- quick update for anyone who still reads this!
As I was trying to finish The 19th Wife, I was given Nicholas Sparks The Best of Me for Christmas. I had been waiting to read this book for months, so I put The 19th Wife on hold.
The Best of Me is wonderful, as expected. I know that all of his books are similar (think young lovers, someone dying, happy ending) -- well, this was really no exception but still wonderful. It was very similar to his novel The Notebook in a lot of ways, yet very different in a lot of ways.
Anyway, classes have started and I know that is a poor excuse for not reading at the moment, but I'm getting back to it! I think I'm going to read 1984 next. I've had it on my bookshelf forever now.
I did get a little further in The 19th Wife -- it is still very interesting and I plan to finish it soon. If you haven't read this, I still highly recommend it!
Also, if you have not checked out or followed my other blog that I actually post on more -- check it out at www.katiemcnett.blogspot.com -- thanks!
