Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Book Review

This post has nothing to do with Kentucky Fried Chicken. I just wanted to type it.

Remember those summer reading programs in elementary school? Where if you read enough books, you won a limo ride to McDonalds with the principal? Sidenote – WTF kind of prize is that?! I’ll admit, at the time, I pined for that prize and sadly couldn’t churn out enough Box Car Children chapter books to make the cut. The good news? Turns out, the real prize is the passion I have acquired for reading books of all kinds. Cheesy, yes. And true.

As of late, I have devoured many an awesome book – so if you’re looking for an amazing summer read, look no further.

1.) The Help

This book really needs no introduction. Pick it up, read the first couple pages and you’ll be hooked. Like I am to Teen Mom.

2.) The Lovely Bones

This book was strange and beautiful. It satiated the part of me that loves both deeply emotional books about people (in this case, pain and healing) and also serial killers. Although the killer in this novel is no John Wayne Gacy, he is super-creepy.

3.) American Wife

Per a reading suggestion from this gal, I picked this little gem up at the Browse n’ Buy thrift store and was blown away. Curtis Sittenfeld, who also wrote another favorite, Prep, hit it outta the park for me with her stunningly accurate depiction of the life of a first lady. Loosely based on the life of Laura Bush, this book was so awesome because she made the main character (Alice) come alive and seem completely real.

4.) Born to Run

This book was given to me by Bryan. It goes into many aspects of running, like ultra-marathons, footwear and injury. The majority of the book is devoted to the Tarahumara tribe, who live in Northern Mexico and run like a grillion miles a day. Seriously. It is fascinating, motivating and makes you want to go for a run.

Other awesome reads:

  • The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
  • The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
  • Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult
