It’s been a while since I participated in this monthly meme……my laptop crashed before Christmas, my blog was down for a while and then our internet service was out! I hope that will be it for the computer problems until much later.
5 Minutes for Books is a great site for book reviews, recommendations and other book related things. So check it out to see who else is sharing their books today. These are a few of my books for the month:

Not pictured but something I just finished were the Sunrise series of books by Karen Kingsbury; the last of the books about the Baxter family. I enjoyed them all and was sad to see them come to an end! At times they might be predictable but I’m ok with that and like to read something clean.
Multiple Blessings by Kate Gosselin is on the bottom and I actually just finished it as well. You might know it from the tv show about their life with 2 sets of multiples and if you like the show you’ll probably enjoy the book. I thought it gave some interesting info about their early days and struggles.
Size 12 is Not Fat……I know nothing about this one and haven’t even read the blurb on the back! It’s one of the many fiction books loaned to me by my sister Stacy.
Hot Tropics and Cold Feet…..I’ve not read anything by Diann Hunt yet; this is another borrowed book.
The Price of Fame….a Guideposts book from the Tales of Grace Chapel Inn series and the one I’m currently reading. Surprise, it came from Stacy…..she’s better than the library! Not sure what will be up next for me after I finish these but the sack of books she sent with me is big enough to have plenty of choices.

I always love recommendations so tell me what you’ve been reading lately!

    Well, welcome back!

    I have Multiple Blessings sitting on MY “nightstand” this month and after your comments I’m even more eager to get to it!

  2. Janet Says:

    I leafed through that ‘Size 12’ book at the bookstore… Such a great title, and I’ve never read any Meg Cabot. ‘Multiple Blessings’ looks good too; I haven’t heard of that one.

    Thanks for posting!

  3. Trish Says:

    Meg Cabot is fun to read, and I love Karen Kingsbury – I think she adds some depth to the predictability that many others don’t have.

    I’ll have to check out Diann Hunt. Great list!

  4. Cindy Says:

    I loved Multiple Blessings and have been considering reading Size 12, if only for the intriguing title!

  5. Jennifer, Snapshot Says:

    The computer woes make me sad. Hopefully you’ll stay in the black!

  6. stephanie Says:

    I flew through the Baxter series last fall and enjoyed them – like you said, even though they were predictable, it was nice reading something that I didn’t have to worry about what would appear on the next page. πŸ™‚

  7. Julie Says:

    I read Multiple Blessings, too. I enjoyed it, but actually liked the Duggars: 20 and Counting more. I have read Meg Cabot’s Princess Diaries series and loved it, but haven’t tried any of her adult novels yet. Enjoy your reading this month. πŸ™‚

    Nice variety of books and glad that your computer troubles are behind you. That can be so frustrating!

  9. Lindsay Says:

    I have heard some great things about the size 12 isn’t fat book. I hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚

  10. BecauseImTheMommy Says:

    Multiple Blessings is on my TBR list. I have heard great things about Meg Cabot and have decided I need to jump into one of her books. Happy Reading!

  11. Bluestocking Says:

    My list is too long to name.


  12. Brittanie Says:

    I love Diann Hunt. Hot Tropics and Cold Feet is a great funny book. I read the Jon and Kate book and liked it too. πŸ™‚

  13. Lauren@Baseballs&Bows Says:

    I was also sad to say goodbye to the Baxters. They did become predictable, but they were familiar, and I enjoyed that. I am on the waiting list for Multiple Blessings at the library. I’m looking forward to reading it.

  14. Shawna Says:

    I’m so behind on reading. I have a couple of YA books I just picked up for the Teen Lit Review site: Uglies and its sequel by Scott Westerfield. They have a great plotline. Enjoy your books.

  15. Kipi Says:

    A great list!

    One of my dds has read some of the Meg Cabot books and really enjoyed them. I’d love to read at least one, but the TBR pile is a little overwhelming right now.

  16. Susanne Says:

    I just finished “Blue Heart Blessed” by Susan Meissner. I had read and reviewed one of her books last fall and nabbed this one at the library when I saw it. I wasn’t disappointed. It was a sweet story. Right now I’m reading “An Irish Christmas” by Melody Carlson, one of my fave authors. And I picked up “Called out of darkness-a Spiritual Confession” by Anne Rice. I think it’s about her becoming a Christian if I’m not mistaken. I’ve never read anything by Anne Rice because her subject material never interested me, but this one sort of caught my interst. We’ll see.

  17. Stacy Says:

    Those are some good books! I’m reading the last Country Road Chronicles book by Leisha Kelly. It’s a really good series and I think you’ll enjoy it. I should have that set ready for you the next time I see you, and a few others. Better than the library, hahaha, not really. I always read them first, so you always have to be on the waiting list! πŸ™‚

  18. Marian Says:

    I read the Jon and Kate book, too. It was interesting to see how they got through those early years, but did it seem to you like she was justifying her behavior a lot? Maybe it’s just mother guilt or something…it just seemed like a lot of “And I did things this way because…” But on the whole I found it enjoyable, too.
