Spring Break: Books

Little known fact: I LOVE to read. I read tons of books over the summer and I hate that I can't really read during the school year. I take complete advantage of any break and extra time that I get apart from school to read a bunch, this spring break isn't any different. The Target book section isn't huge, so I was a little bit nervous about my prospects when I went shopping there a few days ago. I browsed and browsed and was lucky enough to find two books that sound SO me:

1. The Secret Lives of Dresses by Erin McKean
I know you're never supposed to judge a book by its cover...but come on! Just the title drew me in! It sounds so cute, and takes place in North Carolina! Even on the cover it says, "Never underestimate the power of vintage...", naturally I was sold!

2. There's Cake in My Future by Kim Gruenefelder
Anyone remember Southern Weddings Week? I did a post all about the southern tradition of cake pulls, and that's what this story is all about. A bride carefully organizes all the cake pulls to go to certain people for specific reasons, but somehow it gets all mixed up! I'm really looking forward to this beach read! 

Anyone read either of these? I can't wait to dive in! Both have 4.5 star ratings on Amazon so I'm pretty excited! Less than a week until SB2011!

I've almost started Secret Life of Dresses about fifteen times, but I'm waiting until I have time to really enjoy it!

Speaking of books, have you ever read A Southern Belle's Guide or Why Paris Hilton will Never Be A Kappa Kappa Gamma? Its amazing, and very very true!

My favorite book this year is The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. It's kind of like Eat, Pray, Love in that it follows a writer through a life journey. In the book she's trying to find happiness...I quote it almost daily! You gotta check it out! :)

I haven't read any of those, but I recently read Water for Elephants and absolutely loved it! It is so sweet, and I hear there is a movie coming out soon!
