I've read a few books lately that I have absolutely loved, the kind you hope will never end. I'm sharing those with you today, but I also thought it would be fun to ask some people in my circle what they have been reading. Here is our list.

The first few are what I've read and enjoyed.

WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING:  I read this one in April while at the state tennis tournament with my son. Cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed it. Perfect vacation read.

BEFORE WE WERE YOURS:  A complete change of subject matter and pulled at my heart strings in a totally different way, but I did enjoy it almost as much.

LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE: And this one is what I've just started. It felt a little slow to get going to me, but I'm now about 3, maybe 4, chapters in and I'm enjoying it.

THE SUMMER I MET JACK: I read this one last year, but I wanted to make sure you didn't miss it. If you like following the Kennedy's, you'll enjoy it.

TIGER WOODS:  My dad recently read Tiger's story and passed it on to my husband. They say it is eye-opening.

Here are a few picks from my daughter Blair.

ONE DAY IN DECEMBER: Reese Witherspoon also liked this one. :)

AND THEN THERE WERE NONE: This book was one of her favorites, and at one point, I think it was a summer reading book at my high school.

THE ENERGY BUS: To quote her, "This book is a self-help book. By the time you get done reading it, you feel like you can conquer the world. It's about if you have positive thoughts, feelings, and reactions to everything in your life, you will get positivity back in return."

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS: In this book, things looks perfect, but looks can be deceiving. Dark secrets abound.

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN: I read this one too, and it was great. Did you see the movie when it came out? It wasn't very good in my opinion.

THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10: I remember my collegue Mrs. Farabee loving this book also.

I gave WHISKEY IN A TEACUP to my son's girlfriend Millie for her birthday. She loved it.

1984: My mother-in-law recently read this one. Did you have to read it in school? It scared me to death in high school-with good reason. Now Big Brother has come to pass.

THIRD DEGREE:  This action in this book takes place in one day and the author is from Mississippi.  My in-laws are also from Mississippi and this was my father-in-law's pick from what he's read lately.
