I may have a 6 month old, but that doesn't mean I can't feed my brain with great fiction. Here are just a few books I've read lately:
The Time Traveler's Wife: I haven't seen the movie, but the book was a good one. Definitely makes your brain hurt with all the time traveling, but such a heart-wrenching love story.
My Sister's Keeper: Also haven't seen the movie. MAJOR tear-jerker. Get out the tissues for this one.
The Red Tent: A fictional story about Dinah from the Bible. She is the one daughter of Jacob (he had 12 sons). If you aren't familiar with the Bible version (and even if you are), keep it close by for references.
I'd recommend the Twilight Series as well, but c'mon...who hasn't read that?
