Books! Books! Books!

Lisa tagged me and asked me to share the last five books I've read. Bur first I wanted to share my new favorite childrens author with you. I checked these 3 books out of the library for my children, however i enjoyed them much more than they did. Not only are the illustrations beautiful, but the stories are tender and touching. They really have more of a mature theme, so I wouldn't necessarily reccommend them as great for young children. They would enjoy the pictures and cadence, but the underlying stories would be lost on them. Truth be told, I identify with Elizabeth Brown from The Library more than most people would guess. Nothing would please me more than to live in a library or book store and have nothing better to do except read. However, I have given up this dream to accept my calling of being a mom, which I think is a pretty good substitute!

Here are the last 5 books I read:
The Blackbird House by Alice Hoffman
The Host by Stephanie Meyers
Mercy by Jodie Picoult
The Grey King by Susan Cooper
Greenwitch by Susan Cooper
