Good Reads

Grand pumbah reading fest before school officially begins:

The Sugar Queen (Random House Reader's Circle)
My new fav author: Sarah Addison Allen. Read The Sugar Queen and The Girl Who Chased the Moon this week . Quick, easy, delightful reads. Addison Allen mixes fairy tale intrigue with quirky, loveable characters and touching resolution in settings that are familiar and believable. Her writing is delectable.

The Girl Who Chased the Moon: A Novel

Skin Map by Lawhead started slow, developed an intriguing premise and ended with teasers for the rest of the series. Not my fav Lawhead read, but good enough for road trip.

The Skin Map (Bright Empires)

They Thought for Themselves: 10 Amazing Jews by Sid Roth.  Beautiful, autobiographical stories  Jews who discvoered Jesus, the Messiah; a Holocaust survivor, a drug addict, a housewife, and more. Very inspirational. The last chapter, especially, was very thought provoking regarding prophecies about the country of Isreal.
