|Jen M's Book Lists|
|Must put down my electronics and pick up a book! (2 titles)
I've been out of the habit of a weekly visit to the library. We have gone the last two weeks now because my kids and I are wasting too much time on our ipods, smart phones, laptop, etc.
|Books I Only Recommend To My Friends (43 titles)
This list contains books that have helped me escape my day to day routines and realize maybe the drama of my life is not all that. A lot of memoirs, a few novels, some about family relationships, growing up, finding oneself, facing down addiction, etc. Its a montage. Enjoy.

|A fair maiden |
by Oates, Joyce Carol, 1938-
My first read by Oates. Not too sure about it. Sad ending. Maybe I just didn't get it. I am not fond of the "lolita" relationship. posted Mar 18, 2013 at 9:37AM
|Spooky little girl : a novel |
by Notaro, Laurie.
I thought some stereotypical chick lit was what I needed to get back in the swing of reading. Everything was going well until the main character went into the afterlife and the author lost me. Sorry! posted Mar 18, 2013 at 9:36AM
|My life in France |
by Child, Julia.
I savored every well written detail of her adventures both in the kitchen and out. Remind yourself while reading that this was the 1950's and what a different path she chose from most women her age. What a woman! posted Aug 17, 2011 at 6:12PM
|Julie and Julia : my year of cooking dangerously |
by Powell, Julie.
100 times more satisfying than watching the movie. If you like this I highly recommend also reading Julia Child's "My Life in France". posted Aug 17, 2011 at 6:10PM
|Go the fuck to sleep |
by Mansbach, Adam, 1976-
If you didn't relate and laugh your a#* off when you read this, you're no friend of mine. lol! posted Aug 17, 2011 at 6:09PM
