I met Michelle during the final semester of my MA education. We toiled through thesis writing together while also finding encouragement in having kindred spirits. Michelle is seriously the friend that seems to have lived a parallel life - although I question her undergrad college choice;). I often wonder how it is that we didn't meet until grad school. She has two polite and adorable little boys and has very recently added a precious princess to the mix! She, like me, still finds time for a good book once in awhile. Here is a Michelle's sampling of some great recent reads.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
The Gurnsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
Still Alice by Lisa Genova
The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
Half Broke Horses by Jeanette Walls
