Unthinkable Not To Read It...

I recently finished The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green by Joshua Braff (above) and have got to say that it was a fantastic read. I read it on the way to Miami and was laughing out loud on the plane. Hysterical! Joshua tackles brotherly love, puberty, divorce and all kinds of other topics with tenderness but also a sense of humor.

As I read it, I wondered if any of the hilarious stories in this fiction novel were roughly based on true stories growing up in the Braff household. Whatever the case, if you like David Sedaris, you will definitely love this book.

Now onto a bit heavier read, A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. I loved the Kite Runner (even though it was super heavy), and have heard from many that this book is even better. We shall see.....

I've had Thousand Splendid Suns sitting on my bookshelf forever but can't get myself to pick it up. I've heard it's amazing so maybe I'll put it on my list for this summer.

Erin ~ It is currently on loan with Miss Kord and belongs to Miss Avery...

Playful Professional ~ I am only about 10 pages in, but so far so good!

The New Black ~ Love how green you are! Very Jacob Green of you! You will have to let me know what you think!

Vineyard Vogue ~ It is a little on the vulgar side but if you like David you will love this!
