Last week, it was with more than a shred of embarrassment and regret that I realized I had not read a single book all year (I’m afraid my perusal of The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and In Style just doesn’t count). Reminded of my love of reading by Amy Bloom’s gritty and gripping Away (gifted to me by Jon), I was inspired to canvas some mama, Twitter, and Facebook peeps to create the unofficial Boston Mamas Best Reads of 2008 List. Enjoy, and please feel free to comment in with other recommendations, and/or grab the button code at the end of the post to share the link with friends!
Notes: This list is not restricted to books published in 2008; I simply asked for favorite reads of the year. For the most part, I used Amazon’s categories – alphabetized below - to group the recommendations as logically as possible. Specific comments about a particular book are included in parentheses.
BIOGRAPHIES & MEMOIRS
ENTERTAINMENT & HUMOR
LITERATURE & FICTION
PARENTING & FAMILY ISSUES
RELIGION & SPIRITUALITY
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
