This Week’s Read

May 31, 2011
Well I mentioned a few posts back that I was currently reading The Hunger Games series… I finished it last week and have to say, AMAZING. I loved every page of it! If you get a chance and like romance books with lots of excitement, check out this page turning series! I also saw that they are planning to turn these books into movie trilogy! Expected to hit theatres Summer 2012, woot woot!

Next up, The Help by Kathryn Stockett

– I just started it this weekend, but I have to say I am struggling reading this one. I am not struggling because of the content, but more due to the writing… it takes place in the south and is “written” with a southern accent and quite a lot of broken English. I know I am not one to talk with all of my made up words and inaccurate grammar.

For instance this paragraph,
“Only three thing them ladies talk about: they kids, they clothes, and they friends. I head the word Kennedy, I know they ain’t discussing no politic. They talking about what Miss Jackie done wore on the tee-vee.”

Now this is entertaining, but sure slows my reading down. (And I am not a speedy reader to start with) I look forward to pushing through to see what is to come! And while flipping through a recent People magazine, I was surprised to discover that this book has also been turned into a movie, being released this August. Guess that just means it must be a good book! I just need to endure, but I’m sure hearing the words will be much easier than reading them!

AND, speaking of books – Yesterday, I got some happy mail!

I have been patiently waiting for this order to come in!

Last week I ordered the book Mamarazzi, a guide for moms to photograph kids. Now, hold up! We have no baby news at the Helm house yet, but that isn’t going to stop me from being prepared! I have been dying to get my hands on this to study up for future reference. I actually ordered two copies. One for me and one for a special preggo gal I know, dropping it in the mail today!

Happy Wednesday All!

Psst… Want a project sneak peek!?

Stay Tuned!

    Kelli, I have read the help…I agree with your comments. Despsite the way it's written, I really enjoyed reading it. You almost had me there, with your new photography book! ps – my PB mirror still has not arrived ~ I'm getting so excited!

    I got through a little more of it last night, just tough. Haha, I though I should definitely include a disclosure statement about the photography book! Otherwise the rumors begin to fly! :)I have to admit, I am totally stoked to see your PB mirror! Maybe I will have to come up some weekend with Na and see it in person!

    My co-worker is trying to get me to read the Hunger Games series and I have been saying no so far but it sounds like I should maybe jump on board and check them out.
