20131209-044042.jpg

Yay, it’s day 6 and I’ve read 7 books so far. Quite a challenge.

So, today’s challenge is recommend a book good for:

1. a snow day

I definitely recommend you to read The Happy Endings Book Club by Jane Tara. It’s a heartwarming book about love, friendship, and parenthood.

2. a rainy day

Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott would be perfect for a rainy day. It’s a sad story but the ending will make you smile.

3. a beach

Bringing Home The Birkin by Michael Tonello is perfect for a beach-read. You’ll be entertained!

4. a spooky night

Book clubs were tricky. Strangers came together, and no matter how compatible they seemed, if they didn’t like the same books – or at least respect what the other members liked – then the club would die a quick and often painful death. (p. 6)

What’s your quote?

Thanks Jenny and Dana for hosting!
