So sorry ladies - I have been slammed at work and unable to get on here. What wonderful suggestions we have gotten this month! Since May is the month of Mother's Day we will read:

Life on the Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers


The Sometimes Daughter by Sherri Wood Emmons

The other suggestions look great - so we will definitely have to read them in June/July!

The Vow by Kim & Krickitt Carpenter/ John Perry

Kilgannon by Kathleen Givens

We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver

How about The Sometimes Daughter by Sherri Wood Emmons. This is an excellent book on family relationships in general. It speaks about mothers and step mothers and how a daughter just wants her mom all together along with other topics that face a teenager.

I read this book in the past and it is outstanding. Really makes you think about life in general and that this really happens in some homes today. Life on the Refrigator

I would like to suggest "Musings of a 20-Something Mom and the Perils of Being a Mommy Blogger" by Jenny Schoberl. This book is nonfiction. It is about a woman and her experiences as a mommy blogger and some of the good and bad things she went through. She is blunt and can be vulgar sometimes but she is hilarious!

I would also like to suggest Kilgannon by Kathleen Givens.

Mary Lowell wasn't interested in marriage despite her aunt's determination to find her a husband by the end of the London Season. Then Alex MacGannon, Earl of Kilgannon, strode into the ballroom and commanded her heart. They called him a barbarian, a rough-hewn Scot -- chieftain of clan MacGannon. They said no woman could hold him, as he set sail on the high seas. But Alex returned to claim Mary Lowel as his own, to carry her off to Scotland, to his magnificent ancestral castle, Kilgannon. And as the Highlands are torn by rebellion, Mary will find passion -- and danger -- in the rugged land she would now call home.

Those are good suggestions. I still suggest We Need to Talk About Kevin by Shriver.

This is the book I was thinking about. I think it is perfect since May is Mother's Day. Waht do you think?

Life on the Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers

Description: Claire and her mother are running out of time, but they don't know it. Not yet. Claire is wrapped up with the difficulties of her bourgeoning adulthood—boys, school, friends, identity; Claire's mother, a single mom, is rushed off her feet both at work and at home. They rarely find themselves in the same room at the same time, and it often seems that the only thing they can count on are notes to each other on the refrigerator door. When home is threatened by a crisis, their relationship experiences a momentous change. Forced to reevaluate the delicate balance between their personal lives and their bond as mother and daughter, Claire and her mother find new love and devotion for one another deeper than anything they had ever imagined.

Heartfelt, touching, and unforgettable, Life on the Refrigerator Door is a glimpse into the lives of mothers and daughters everywhere. In this deeply touching novel told through a series of notes written from a loving mother and her devoted fifteen-year-old daughter, debut author Alice Kuipers deftly captures the impenetrable fabric that connects mothers and daughters throughout the world. Moving and rich with emotion, Life on the Refrigerator Door delivers universal lessons about love in a wonderfully simple and poignant narrative.
