If you haven’t read The Help yet, read it!
It’s my new favorite book. I couldn’t stop reading it on Saturday. Poor Whitney tried to talk to me and I just nodded.
I do love Southern fiction, and this book has everything you could ever want. It was one of those where I really wanted to know what happened, but then if I did, it would be over and that crushes me.
They’re making a movie coming out August 12.
DON’T READ BELOW IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK:
As I read, I got so excited about the parts when she is with Stuart. I love that he came around and turned out to be really sweet, but in the end, I secretly wanted them to be together. Is there something wrong with me? Do I always just look for the love story? Ugh, I think I know the answer. I wanted him to come around and say that it didn’t matter what she was doing that he loved her even though he wasn’t ready for forward thinking. While I was disappointed with that, it is a good piece of reality. We are going to let each other down. Just because a guy seems right, doesn’t mean he is Mr. Right. Skeeter is a bold woman and it’s not all about the guy. Darn you chick flicks.
