Drum Roll Please...

I know you all have been DYING to know what book you will be reading this month. Sorry it took me so long to get to this post. Crazy day. I had to work at the Y. Then I came home and made a quick lunch cuz I was starving. Then I had to take Howie out to spend his birthday money. (yeah that's right, you forgot his birthday) Then I had to make a run to the dump, where btw I got invited to go fishing with a weirdo, but was flattered none the less. Then I had to pick up my kids from school. Then I had to vacuum out Dwight's truck, it was super dirty. Then I had to go to Zamzows, we have aphids. Then I came home and sprayed the trees and bushes. Then I came in to sit for a second. Then I remembered you have all been waiting for me and my big announcement.
Are you ready?
We will be reading "The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes" . Click on the link to buy it from amazon, or head over to Target. Or get it from the library, sickos.

I read this a couple years ago and loved it. I will say it is more PG-13 rated. There may be a little more involved that just levi-lovin. And maybe a few more four letter words, can't remember for sure. It's dramatic, it's romantic, it's interesting. (I read that on a review)
Here's the premise...An unsolved murder. A missing child. A lifetime of deception. In 1977, pregnant Genevieve Russell disappeared. Twenty years later, her remains are discovered and Timothy Gleason is charged with murder. But there is no sign of the unborn child. CeeCee Wilkes knows how Genevieve Russell died, because she was there. And she also knows what happened to the missing infant, because two decades ago she made the devastating choice to raise the baby as her own. Now Timothy Gleason is facing the death penalty, and she has another choice to make. Tell the truth, and destroy her family. Or let an innocent man die in order to protect a lifetime of lies...
Oh Yeah, you're all hooked!

Ooooh, I can't wait for sumthin Pg-13 after finishing a lame book geared towards 15-yr-old girls with boy troubles. I'm headed to the library first thing tomorrow!

Katie said...

I'm in, Hot Pants. I figure, if the plot is even half as enthralling as that rundown of your Tuesday, we're in for a serious page turner.

StandsMom said...

Hot Pants, you are hilarious! In the process of preordering Mockingjay and Bree Tanner, I tossed CeeCee in the cart. I can't wait to get it and get started. Yay!!

Amanda said...

Wow, little miss Hot Pants you did have a busy day. I did nothing today unless you count the nap I took in the afternoon.

I'll be picking this up from my local library since I'm a sicko and proud of it. :)

What harm can a few aphids do fhs? Gosh, just let them live their lives!!!!

Oh, and exciting!! I love murder & intrigue & lies.

eekareek said...

YES!! More than levi lovin's. Thanks Markie and Hot Pants for raising the bar. Next month, Bewitching Love Stories.

Jenny ESP said...

Thrills, chills, and adventure? Sounds like my kinda book. I hope Capt'n Jack is in it.

Shel said...

It looks good, but I'm not sure I'm gonna let my 13 year old read it. She loves your book club...this is a plea to the next person (or the person after that) to pick something we can all read. ;0)

Shel said...

And I already preordered Mockingjay, too. We're all excited about that...

Shel said...

Not every month...just every once in awhile. I know you gize need your soft porn. ;0)

Hot Pants said...

We could also start a kiddos book club for the little ones. Bailey would love it! Just a thought, you know, to protect them from us perverts.

Hot Pants said...

;) <--forgot to add that to the end of my comment.

Landee said...

Yes!!! JBird would LOVE an online book club with all your cool kids! ;)

Jenny ESP said...

K, I'm liking this junior book club thing. Cord is on board too. I'll work on a new blog (and make Landee help me)...

This is perfect timing for a spin off, as June is SRBC anniversary month. Stay tuned, cuz this is gonna be huge...

Hot Pants said...

Yeah, have Landee help you cuz it was totally her idear.

Jenny ESP said...

I apologize profusely, HP. We can all see that it was totally YOUR idear, and I'll make sure you get full credit on the side bar: "ALL HotPant's IDEAR!!!" I was only hoping to get Landee to help with the header. Our combined header-creating skillz are legendary (see mind-blowing SRBC header). But I know you're more than capable of making an awesome header too, so the job's all yours if you want it. Email me a pic, asap.

Happy Birthday Howie.

I believe everyone else missed the point of this post.

Amanda said...

Great idea Jespy, I mean Hot Pants. I will see if Bella wants to get on board. She's into a book right now and it takes her a while to finish so maybe she'll want to start in August. I'll a little embarrassed because I didn't know we had any juniors in SRBC. I hope I never said anything too inappropriate.
