S LAST YEAR L.J. Smith
- The Help by Kathryn Stockett

This is another book club book, that I probably won’t have picked up on  my own, the cover shows a bunch of women in cheesy dresses, with big hair and I probably won’t have picked it up just on the principle of it (I’m weird like that). The book took  me by surprise, it had depth and meaning and good humor. If you don’t know what I mean by Chocolate Pie, you should just go read the book, or if your lazy watch the movie (my old boss to me looks allot like Celia, no one else agrees with me, but I don’t know they are similar...)
SIDE NOTE: I guess the cover doesn't have cheesy dresses.. it's the movie that does. We read the book the same time the movie came out on DVD and I think that's why I have it confused, it was a big deal... It's also surprising cause while looking up the book I discovered that it is Kathryn Stockett first book and it took her five years to find someone to publish it, I suppose all the people who rejected her book now regret it! AND if you can imagine it

As of August 2011, it has sold five million copies and has spent more than 100 weeks on the The New York Times Best Seller list.


WOW, good for her!
