What I've been reading lately . . . .

I've read a few books over the last few months that I've enjoyed and wanted to share with you.

Three (3) Novels By Pamela Aidan: An Assembly Such as This, These Three Remain, Duty and Desire These three books tell the story of Pride and Prejudice through the eyes of Mr. Darcy. If you are a Pride and Prejudice/Jane Austen fan, I highly recommend this trio! (4/5)

The Wednesday Letters by Jason F Wright - This book tells the story of a family who finds the letters the father writes to the mother - one every Wednesday of their marriage. Family secrets are revealed and the family is left to deal with them. This was an O.K. book. I thought the idea was good, but the characters were very 2 dimensional. I really didn't feel like I knew any of the characters at the end of the book.(3/5)

Twilight (The Twilight Saga, Book 1)New Moon (The Twilight Saga, Book 2)
, Eclipse (The Twilight Saga), and Breaking Dawn (The Twilight Saga, Book 4)
by Stephenie Meyer - I loved this series so much! I read all four books in four days! I think most of us have heard about the storyline . . . a girl (Bella) falls in love with a 'vegetarian' vampire (Edward). Unlike the previous book, the characters came alive in this book. I found myself thinking about Bella and Edward like they were people I knew. A beautiful love story! (overall 4.5/5 . . . although the last book I didn't enjoy quite as much).
