The FAB FruGALS Book Selections For July…
As much as we all love reading grocery store ads and combing the internet for FAB coupons, sometimes a good book is just what we need at the end of a long day. With the kids out of school for the summer and family vacations to plan… finding a little “me time” to curl up to a good book is something we all look forward to.
Here are the FruGALS recommendations for July.
Bossypants by Tina Fey
In this hilarious memoir, Tina somehow manages to be ridiculously self-deprecating and endearingly down-to-earth all in the same breath. I cried a little, I laughed a lot and then I cried a little more from laughing a lot. While the crass humor might not be for everyone, if you are a Tina Fey fan I highly recommend you plant your nose in this must-read. ~Amber
The Lamplighter by Maria S. Cummins
I’m so excited to read this book for the first time!! My mom’s group has been talking about the series of 11 since before I became a mom, and I finally broke down and got my hands on one!! I can’t wait to dig into this literary classic! ~ Becky
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
Before this month I hadn’t read a book for a long time, but I finally started the Hunger Games trilogy and finished those this week. I couldn’t put them down and hope they make a well-done movie of them. ~Melanie
The Hunger Games Audiobook So I am a little behind on popular reads and just read this book. Actually I listened on CD in my car since I do not get much spare reading time. It was so good I would find myself making excuses to drive around just so I could find out what happened next. ~Monica
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen
At my family reunion I’ve been visiting with my sis in law Marji, who is an avid reader. She has a Kindle and I’ve been able to play with it a bit (its amazing how it feels like you’re looking at real pages). One of her favorite books on her Kindle is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen. If you like p&p you’ll love how fun this version is… zombies thrown in! A fun read! ~Cathy
Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre by Brett L. Markham
I just received this book from Amazon and I’m looking forward to learning how to improve the quanity of food I can grow in my raised garden beds. I’m especially excited about the chapters on how to save seeds and crop rotation. ~Mavis
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
I am only 3 chapters into The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I mostly read Children’s books for obvious reasons, but I am always working on something. I have heard mixed reviews of this book but so far so good. It is a mystery novel about the search for a missing person that uncovers, ‘a vein of unfathomable iniquity and corruption.’ ~Kearna
Sizzling Sixteen (Stephanie Plum) by Janet Evanovich
I’m just about to start Janet Evanovitch’s A Stephanie Plum Novel, Sizzling Sixteen. It’s part of a series about a spunky down to earth bounty hunter named Stephanie Plum and all of her strange and laugh out loud funny screwball adventures. I absolutely love the clean humor and look forward to each new book in the series! ~Jessica
