Catching up on some reading...

One of the strangest pregnancy symptons I have is that I just can't read when I'm pregnant. Weird, huh? I normally love to read and will go through tons of books every month. But as soon as the nausea hits, my desire to read is gone.
As soon as I had Austin, I was back to reading and I've been making up for lost time. In the first three months, I read 12 books (3 series), here are my reviews.
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. 100+ people recommended this series to me and I didn't understand what the hype was. It's a vampire love story. Sad news...I still don't understand what the hype was about. I give it a C-, but an A+ for cleanliness.
The next series I read was The Uglies. It consisted of 4 books and although it was a sci fi (not really something I'm into) it intrigued me. I give the second book an F (could he have used the word "bubbly" anymore??), but a B+ overall. Some swearing, but overall pretty clean.
The last three books I read were historic fictions on the wives of Henry VIII. Excellent books! Pretty dirty, so if you decide to read them, you've been warned. The first was a bit boring, but overall the series gets an A-.

Well, one things for sure, you're not pregnant any more! Sheesh! Quite the list! Someday if I ever read again, I will have to try Twilight myself.

I was going to read twilight because Meg said in her blog it was good...but I looked through it and it just seemed a little cheesy to me. Thanks for the reviews!

Hey Brits! I have a book recommendation for you. Abundance by Sena Jeter Naslund. It's about Marie Antoinette and it was really good! Naslund also wrote Ahab's Wife which is one of my fave books. Anyway, miss you. :) Shaneequa.

Well, I went in reading Twilight thinking it can't get dumber than an high school vampire love story, so the book is really good when you have low expectations! I guess it's a good thing they are filming the movies here in Portland and not Idaho!
Also, Brooke is convinced all your pictures of Ashlyn are really her! It's cute.
