The Book I Couldn't Put Down.

I got back in my groove by participating in last weeks Book Club Friday - but after reading this post by Heather, I immediately downloaded this book on my Kindle ereader:

Never one to keep good ideas to myself - I immediately told Candy, my best friend and Brandy, my sweet friend from back in Indiana to download it as well. I knew they both had e-readers and they've bought books I've recommended before. I needed someone to obsess with me while I read at rapid speed.

Let me just say that I couldn't put this book down. I finished it literally in 24 hours (and this was a workday - so know that I read on lunch, at stoplights, while I dried my hair, etc).

My one caution should be that there is some 'adult content'.

I loved it. Brandy finished before I did (she stayed up late and read it all in one night) and Candy was close behind. They both LOVED it as well and we've spend the rest of this week trying to decide if we want to buy the other 2 books Jamie McGuire has written, even though they're not in the same genre. We've also all felt sad it's over now that we hurried through, we wish we'd rationed it out! Ha! Thanks for Heather for a great recommendation - it made my week!

Currently reading:

Watch for a review on this next week.

I felt the same way about reading BD so fast! I may read it again.

Thanks for the shoutout Bekes! :) LOVE LOVE LOVED that book! And I am so sad that it is over. I am still up in the air about her other 2 books.

Let me know what you think about Winter Garden. It took me awhile to get into it, but then I ended up liking it... just not as much as Firefly Lane!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Love you!

Seriously haunting cover. I love it! I read winter garden a while ago, so I'll be interested to see your take on it next week! (as of now I'll keep it nice and vague, haha!)

Sounds good! I have to read all the others I've downloaded first, though! haha
