Reading Challenge - Book 18

The eighteenth book I read for the 2015 PopSugar Reading Challenge was number 18 on the list - a Pulitzer Prize winning book. 'Beloved' by Toni Morrison was the 1988 Pulitzer Prize winner.

I'm not sure what I expected from reading this book, but I got way more crazy than anything else. It was the kind of crazy that sucked you in, because the narrators were in it. My heart was broken right along with Sethe's as I tried to understand the reasons behind her actions, and the neverending results.

And although it's only been a couple days, so far the book is staying with me. I need to find something light, fun, and quick to read to leave the despair in Beloved behind. I keep trying to remember the triumph of Denver. Hopefully the crazy has stopped.

What's the last book you read that was light, fun, and engaging? I want to laugh out loud again, but I don't know that Sethe ever did...

I love Toni Morrison. She's one of my favorite authors. Right now I'm reading "The Signature of All Things" by Elizabeth Gilbert.

I love books like that! I think Chick lit is the way to go if you want some light reading. I am currently reading Tess of the D'Ubervilles which I highly doubt is light, lol!

Unfortunately, I have to admit, I don't read for enjoyment. Even so, I appreciate people who do!!!

The last book I read that made me laugh out loud was An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. Great book and an easy read.

Never heard of this book. Sounds interesting. I really need to find a way to add more reading to my life. I haven't even started my summer reading list.

I have only seen this movie, I've never read the book. I love her writing though! Right now I'm reading books about cameras because I have a new DSLR--not fun! :)
