52 Books in 52 Weeks Reading Challenge Update

This summer has been the summer of reading for me.  Early in the summer, my boys wanted to take a trip to Barnes and Noble to pick out a book. My oldest son was a on a quest to find his book for his summer reading assignment.  He chose a book based on the fact that I’d seen the movie.  Once he started reading it, he decided it wasn’t the book for him, so I gladly took it off his hands.


My 9th book of the summer and book 21 from my reading challenge is The Help. This is under the category of “a book that is a story within a story” from the PopSugar Reading Challenge.

I think I’m about the only person on the planet that had not read this book. The first time I saw the movie, all of my friends told me they’d read it.  I’m glad I finally got the chance. I loved this book just as much as I loved the movie.  Any book that can make me laugh and cry and cringe all in the same setting is my kind of book.


How has your summer reading gone?  I think I’m going to take over my son’s final summer reading selection once he finishes it up. I found Confessions of a Domestic Failure on the shelf at a Wal-Mart this summer. My husband encouraged me to purchase it, but I couldn’t make myself do it.  Now that I’ve finished book 21, I will have to hunt it down.


Happy Reading!

    I found this book at the used bookstore and snatched it up. I also saw the movie first, thought I heard amazing things about the book. I find the book to be different from the movie, but not in a bad way. I just think that its good to have a bit more backstory, like you get in the book. I also saw Hidden Figures before reading the book, and I look forward to read that as well, because I think it will flesh out the story of what really happened even more.

      The Hidden Figures movie kind is clumps everything together. I read the Young Readers Edition. It really showed the time span of which advancements were made.

      I agree with you about The Help movie and book, that although they are different in some ways, it’s not a bad thing.

      Hope you are doing well!
