Book Buzz – The Secret Life of Bees

I’m so behind the times here! I know I’d heard of this book from a couple different girlfriends, but there’s also an entire movie I knew NOTHING about! Where have I been? Putting it on my Netflix queue today.

I read this book this past week and absolutely loved it. It was almost as good as The Help, if not as good. If you’ve got girlfriends, a fantastic group of mothers/aunts, this book will nurture and warm you… and maybe make you shed a tear or two. And if you’re without a mother (like the main character) and wish to have a great group of girlfriends, you really NEED to read this.
It’s set in South Carolina in 1964, and centers around a young girl, Lily, and her quest to find out who her mother was and discover her own place in the world. I don’t want to give anything away about this book so just read it if you haven’t. (I found it on Amazon for $3!) And then let your girlfriend, your mother, your sister, your aunt, your cousin borrow it. Then discuss.
Let me know if you have any suggestions for me! I’ve got a couple more to get through, but am always on the lookout for the next few good ones!
Happy Wednesday guys, we’re almost done with this week!
