This just made my day...

So everyone, I mean EVERYONE, knows how much I love the book, The Secret Life of Bees. I make everyone read it, I buy copies so I can give it to people to read - I L-O-V-E it!
And it just made my day when I get wind that they are making it into a movie! Not only that, it is going to star Dakota Fanning, Queen Latifah AND Jennifer Hudson (among others). The movie is not scheduled to come out until 2009, but I just had to share my excitement!
I have a love for books, and that brings me to the SPRING READING THING!
I saw this over at my ADPi big sister's blog, and I thought it was a great idea!
So, here are a few books I would like to read in the upcoming spring months:
-My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult (I have heard great things about this book, but I hear you need a whole box of Kleenex to go with it.)
-Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns (Melanie recommended this book to me, and I have not gotten the chance to start it.)
-Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert (Again, I've heard great things...)
-The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards (I have actually bought this book, but I have not read it yet!)
-One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (another book I previously purchased.)
As you can see, I need to get BUSY READING!
HAPPY READING to all of you who have joined in on the fun! Hopefully this will make me finish these books - feel free to leave comments if you have read any of the books! And check the spring reading thing for more information!


  1. I am one of the few people left who has not read The Secret Life of Bees, but your enthusiasm just may persuade me. :) As for My Sister's Keeper...yes, keep the tissues handy. Thanks for being part of SRT '08!

  2. I read My Sisters Kepper and LOVED it! I think that I read the entire thing in a weekend. Once you start reading, you will not be able to put it down. They are making a movie of it this summer.

  3. I loved reading The Secret Life of Bees. I am so excited they are making it into a movie! One Hundred Years of Solitude is on my reading list too. I hope to have the time to read it this summer!
