A great book

I just finished reading a great book, The Baker's Daughter after reading about it on JCHOKIE 's blog spot.  It was such an easy read, but totally had me from the very beginning.  I don't want to give away too much, but let's just say there were tears and smiles.  If you want a book that makes ya feel sad but then gives you a bit of hope in the end, read it.

When I was in Starbucks today buying chocolate  the girl behind the counter was crying.  Kind of weird and I debated on "Do I ask her what's wrong and deal with the consequences?" So I decided to show a little compassion and ask her if she was ok.  Maybe she was being held against her will at Starbucks?  Being forced to drink latte after latte??  She smiled and said she was fine, but the book she was reading was so sad.  SAD??  A book that makes you CRY.  Well sign me up people-where's my kindle....My brain was  So here's my next read:
For me there is nothing better than a book that makes me sob-like snot rolling, eyes puffy, nose stuffing, air gasping SOB.  I love it.  And my friends wonder why I look like hell the next day at work....most have figured out I stayed up all night reading a sad book.  What is wrong with me??

After that read, I'm going for my Guaranteed to Make Me Cry like a Baby Author-Jodi Picoult.....Lone Wolf.  She never lets me down.  I should buy stock in Kleenex.
What are you currently reading?  And is anyone else as giddy as I am about The Hunger Games??

I'm so glad you enjoyed the Baker's daughter! I have the John green book on my list to read too, you'll have to let me know how it is. I also love that you went to Starbucks for chocolate. ;)

I will have to check these books out soon. So excited for the Hunger Games, can hardly stand it. I don't ever recall being this excited over a movie.
