2010 Summer Reads: Oprah’s Picks?

Hi everyone! Here is my first in a series of “summer reads”! This list is from Oprah, but don’t worry — this is the last Oprah list for a while…!

I have a great variety of summer lists to share!  I’ve read a few of the following, so I included a link to my review whenever possible.  Personally, I wouldn’t consider Olive Kitteridge (which I loved) or The Women (which I liked)  “beach reads?”  So, I’m not sure what the criteria for this list was…  On the other hand, The Help and Open House are great beach reads.  And I’m waiting patiently for Dreaming in Hindi and thought The Castaways sounded pretty good when it was released a while ago…  Haven’t heard of the others — any comments?

    I’ve read; Open House – okay; Olive Kitteridge; very good; The Help; excellent and Piano Teacher; Lee – very good.

    I can’t believe she did another list! Thought she was through with books.

    Hi Diane! Thanks for stopping by… I get an email newsletter from Oprah a few times a week and this is where I found the list. I think Oprah plans to continue to include lists and recommendations in her magazine (O).

    I’ve been meaning to read The Piano Teacher — thank you for reminding me to put it at the top of my TBR list!

    I read Open House by Elizabeth Berg and really enjoyed the suspense, and the life lessons I got from the book.

    I read The Help and I thought the author did a wonderful job with it. I pasted my copy around and everyone loved.

  5. Sounds like lovely reads! I’ve been looking for the next book to read. The reviews are very helpful.
