The Secret Life of Bees (2003) by Sue Monk Kidd

The Poisonwood Bible (1998) by Barbara Kingsolver

Can You Keep a Secret? (2005) by Sophie Kinsella

Confessions of a Shopaholic (2001) by Sophie Kinsella

Shopaholic Takes Manhattan (2002) by Sophie Kinsella

The Namesake (2004) by Jhumpa Lahiri


It looks like we’ve reached that part of my bookshelf that contains my dirty little secret of loving the silly and slapstick Shopaholic series. I’ve already confessed that sin here. I would say that the Lahiri next to it balances out this section. And if you want to read a great contemporary novel about the effects of the Holocaust, dive into Broken for You by Stephanie Kallos. That book hasn’t gotten enough attention in my opinion.


Have you read any of these? And did you enjoy them?
