I am working my way through some good books and I wanted to share.
Impossible by Nancy Werlin (YA) is a story inspired by the song "Are you Going to Scarborough Fair." It is written in our time but with a touch of magic and folklore. I really enjoyed the story and the characters -- a great beach read. (Warning, this has a disturbing scene, you might want to read it before you pass it off to your daughters.)
Heist Society by Ally Carter (YA) is an absolute kick! This is not a continuation of her previous series (Don't Judge a Girl by her Cover (Gallagher Girls)) but is equally enjoyable. Think of it as "Ocean's Eleven" for teenage girls.
Right now on the recommendation of a friend I am reading Snow Flower and the Secret Fan: A Novel (adult historical fiction). This is not a book for the faint of heart or the easily disgusted. It contains a detailed description of foot binding-- I almost had to put it down myself. However, the story is fascinating and I find myself sickly fascinated to see how it is going to end.
Let me know what you think and feel free to pass on any good reads you have found. I am always looking for a good book!
