Late getting this up! (And actually, this particular entry was supposed to go up last Friday, but I didn't realize that would be the last Friday in October! Time is flying!!!)
The Ordinary Princess by M.M. Kaye
Oh how I love this book. If you have little girls, they need to read it as soon as they are old enough. Princess Amethyst, blessed with special fairy gifts like her beautiful sisters, was also given one different gift: to be ordinary. Such a lovely story. I think I should reread it. :)
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
This is an incredible book. Thought provoking, as classics should be. Dorian Gray, the picture of goodness and innocence. But what happens when he discovers that the choices he makes will show up on the countenance of his portrait rather than his own face? An interesting examination of human nature, among other things.
I Am a Mother by Jane Clayson Johnson
This is a book about the importance of being a mother. It is written from the perspective of an LDS woman, the former network news correspondent Jane Clayson Johnson. It is....wonderful. Well researched, thoughtfully written. Uplifting and encouraging. I can't say enough about it, so I'm not going to try!
