Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy hosts a monthly link-up for sharing casual, tweet-sized book reviews. I worry that I forget to record books I've read because I always feel like I've read more titles than I end up posting. Life with littles, perhaps? Anyway, here's what I've read (and remembered!) lately...
Crunchy Cons :: Rod Dreher
Ron Paul will always be my first political love, but I found myself saying, "YES!" on nearly every page of this book.
Cliff's Notes: It's okay to love organic produce grown in your area, feel queasy about guns, be staunchly pro-life, recycle religiously, AND call yourself a conservative. Phew!
The Fault in Our Stars :: John Green
A bit teenagery, but the story and characters were hard to resist. Keep the tissue box close.
Looking forward to the movie (out sometime this year, I believe?)!
Pride and Prejudice :: Jane Austen
I finished this a bit late for the Motherhood and Jane Austen Book Club discussion, but it was a lot of fun to re-read through that lens.
P.S. I totally blame Mr. Bennet more than I ever did in the past. He can't make any effort to rope in his daughters?!
Dad Is Fat :: Jim Gaffigan
Oh, this book. So funny. So worth sharing with another parent--preferably your spouse. There was laughter, cry-laughter, and we're-not-the-only-ones! laughter...great stuff all around from an immensely funny man. Worth reading!
