Running with a Great Book!

Just finished a great book called Little Bee by Chris Cleave.  It was the kind of book that you can breeze through.  It was a really engaging book that I didn't want to put down.

It's the story of 2 women - Sarah, an Englishwoman, and Little Bee, a Nigerian refugee.  I love books like this - the kind that start in present day and then catch you up with the story by taking you back to the past.  There was a terrible thing that happened to Little Bee and Sarah in the past.  They reconnect when Sarah's husband dies and we learn about the integrity of both women.  I have to admit that the ending was a little disappointing; however, it's still a good read.

I'm linking over to a great book blog that I found recently called Food for Thought.  This blogger must read around the clock - I'm so envious.  She gives great book reviews and relates the books to food - two of my most favorite things!  Check it out!

Oh, and tell me...what are you reading lately?

Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Thanks for the book rec...I will add it to my list of books to read :)

  2. Oh, this is icing on the cake for someone who just got a Kindle...I'm adding Little Bee to my list to search for and I'm going to hop over to Food for Thought.
    I've just finished Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo...about his 4 year old son who died and came back to tell his preacher father things that amazed him...I'm almost finished with The Potluck Club, Book 1 by Linda Evans Shepherd...and also going back and forth to read Jane Eyre. Snow day today...what shall I do...READ!!!
