Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich - I've heard it before from other readers of this series, but this is seriously the first time that I was sincerely bored with Stephanie and her gang. I am not sure if you can count me in for Nineteen.
The Revolt of Mother and Other Stories by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman - Totally not a book I would have chosen for myself, but it was fun to read an author from the early nineteenth century talking her brand of women's lib.
The Awakening and Selected Stories by Kate Chopin - The Awakening was a fabulously written story. It is worth everyone's time to read it. Study up on Kate Chopin a bit. It was the last book she ever published. It seems that her unwillingness to call down judgment on Edith in her story, caused her readers to ditch her. Considering the caliber of her writing I find this a dying shame.
The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis - I had the great and esteemed pleasure to read this aloud with my 7th grade son. It is his first experience with the world of Narnia. I loved to share that with him considering I read these books over and over as a kid. We started the next book. Unfortunately, our reading time as a family is seriously jeopardized during the school year.
Domestic Violets by Matthew Norman - A very good, refreshing male 30-something book. It lagged a teensy, tiny little bit or it would have been my favorite.
The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton - Assigned reading that I actually loved! Lily Bart, the would be high society wife, that can't quite seem to keep the attention of any man. She's either too much this or too much that or not enough of this or that. This was definitely my favorite for the month.
