The Glass Castle ~ Reading thru 2010!

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls is the 2nd book I have read in 2010.
To see the rest of my list go HERE.

The Glass Castle is an amazing story. I really feel like I know her. Her story at times made me so sad but her strength and strong-will made me smile. I just want to give her a hug. Anyone that questions if they have had a tough life needs to read this! I cried, I admit it, I cried at the end. I cried because I felt like I was losing a friend and I wanted to know more. What happened to Maureen?  I hope I would have been a friend to Jeanette if we had met in one of her stops.

A must read!!

What should I read next???

Reading for 2010

One of my GOALS for 2010 is to read more. I have started The Help by Katherine Stockett and it is great. I had 3 people tell me how wonderful it was and I am happy to report that they were right! Her character profiles are so well written that I feel like I know Minny, Abileen and Skeeter personally. The book takes place in the 60’s in Mississippi during a very critical time for race relations and brings these women together for a purpose, To tell their story. Love it!
