Too much reading, not enough blogging! Here's what I've been up to:

Little Men and Jo's Boys by Louisa May Alcott - I was getting tired of books about politics and money, so I pulled these off the shelf for a fiction break. Hadn't read them since I was a girl. Little Men should practically be required reading for mothers of boys, as I am.

The Covenant by Beverly Lewis - I really enjoyed this book, and can't wait to read the whole series. My only complaint is that it moves a bit slow, and since it is a series, many (well, most) of the plot lines don't get wraped up.

Money, A Memoir : Women, Emotions, and Cash by Liz Perle - Ms. Perle uses her life story to discuss the often complicated relationship that women have with money, as well as with men, power, and each other. The book gave me a lot to think about, but provides no easy answers.

Life Laughs : The Naked Truth about Motherhood, Marriage, and Moving On by Jenny McCarthy - When I reviewed Belly Laughs, I wrote: "Let's hope she doesn't write a sequel." Guess what. She wrote two. I couldn't finish this book fast enough. At least Belly Laughs had that "been-there, done-that" charm to it. This one wasn't even funny. I did get a lot of smug satisfaction out of learning that her breasts are droopy even though she didn't breastfeed, however. I am going to force myself to read Baby Laughs, and then I hope I can forget I ever read these books.
