I recently bought a few children books as a baby shower gift, and while shopping purchased these two for myself. I had a pretty good idea what I wanted before shopping in the first place. Since I already have so many books waiting to be read, I didn't need more impulse buys. These two are both ones I've been wanting to read for a while (and hopefully I can fit them into my reading schedule sooner rather than later!).
Bringing Up Bebe by Pamela Druckerman
No I'm not pregnant, and nor do I plan on being for a while. But this one had so much hype when it was first released that it piqued my interest. Plus it's focused on French parenting, and I definitely have a soft spot for France.
Dreams of Joy by Lisa See
I've been wanting to read this one ever since it was released. I really enjoyed Shanghai Girls, so finding the sequel in hardcover and bargain priced is an amazing deal for me.
Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks
I borrowed this one from a coworker. (It's been making the rounds in my department.) I may not be able to convince the boy to see this with me, but this way I'll at least have read the book.
For Review from TLC Books Tours
The Long Way Home by Mariah Stewart
A few weeks ago all the other Chesapeake Diaries books had their own Mailbox Monday post, but this is the one I'll definitely be reviewing. (Although I would like the read and reviews the others at some point.) Definitely looks like a cute story.
The Promise of Stardust by Priscille Sibley
I'm really excited to read this one, which is about a husband who discovers his wife is pregnant while she is brain dead and on life support. I can't even imagine having to deal with that decision, and am definitely interested to read his decision, and all the consequences it has on him.
