Books In Review

I've read a few books lately and I thought I would share my opinions with all of you because, ya know, everyone's been waiting for another opinion of mine!

We'll start off with "Sarah's Quilt" by Nancy Turner. It's the sequel to "These Is My Words" which is one of my all time favorite books. I really enjoyed it. There was an interesting story line and the writing was fabulous, just like the first book. It was a great story, but it lacked something. I'm thinking that it's because a character that was wonderful in the first book wasn't in the second book. Is that vague enough?! I don't want to spoil the first one for anyone. I want to read the third book, "Star Garden" in the near future so I'll let you know all my thoughts and feelings on that book as well. Because I'm nice like that. ;o)

Keeping with the quilt theme, I also read "The Fortune Quilt" by Lani Diane Rich. This book is about a psychic quilt maker. How could I NOT read this book! It was totally quirky with quite a few f-bombs, but it was fun to read.

So, can you guess what project I'm working on right now? ;o)
100 points for whoever guesses right!

I just finished "These Is My Words" the other day! Loved it. My mom said she didn't care as much for "Sarah's Quilt" either cuz of the character thing, too. I can't wait to hear what you think of the 3rd one.

What kind of quilt are you making?
