Kelly's Book 5.12: The Mermaid Chair

Dear Jenny,

Well, it's the month 9 and I'm only picking book 5, so I guess I'm 4 months behind. The move took waaaay more out of me than I had predicted (probably a good thing I didn't know before I did it, though). The last time I did this sort of thing, I was a lot younger. ;)

At any rate, I haven't given up! So here I am, choosing book 5. Mostly because I am getting on a plane on Monday and it's the smallest of my remaining books to haul around with me.

I've also been reading other (not TBR! Gasp!) books and I struggle to read more than one book at a time. But I'll power through -- I need to get on top of this darned list!

I know absolutely nothing about this book except that it was written by Sue Monk Kidd, who also wrote The Secret Life of Bees, which I loved. I just read the jacket description and, while it started strong, I did have a bit of a WTF moment towards the end. Sooo... we'll just see.

  1. K,

    I'm having a stall-out of epic proportions myself. With the beginning of school, and all the other stuff, yada yada. I think my list was a problem, too. There's not enough variety, there's too many LOOONNNGGG books, and I'm starting to think that I didn't read these for a reason. hah.

    I'm hoping once school gets back up and running smoothly, I can tackle something from the list. Until then, I'm biding my time with mysteries.

    Have fun at the football game today!!!!
