Default The Help

I tried searching for it to see if it had already been mentioned, but it did not come up.

I read The Help recently (haven't seen the movie yet, but plan to this weekend) and it was REALLY good! I seriously had a hard time putting it away at night so I could sleep.

Now I am reading another book-that-is-now-a-movie-that-I-haven't seen-yet, The Lovely Bones. It is not what I was expecting, but it has held my interest and is turning into quite a good read.

And then of course, before that I read The Darcys and The Bingleys- Pride and Prejudice continues. Yup, Austen-esque fiction is a guilty pleasure of mine....and I am not ashamed!

I really do need to find another book to start reading. I guess lack of time has been preventing me.

I keep seeing the book The Help and it always grabs my attention, but haven't picked it up yet. Maybe I will make time now! Thank you!

Yes, the book was wonderful- I did watch the movie this past weekend and I definitely think that the book was 10x better than the movie! I've lent my copy to my sister, who also loved it and read in like 3 days, and now I've lent it to my husband's Grandma. My mom wants it after that, lol.

Glad you are enjoying!

I LOVED The Help book and thought the movie was pretty good too.

Personally, I could never get into The Lovely Bones but many friends enjoyed it..
