What I've Read :: April 2011

Well, it's time for another exciting edition of "What I've Read". Sadly, I only managed to finish one book in April, so this is going to be a pretty short post. Hopefully May will be a better reading month.

Editorial review taken from Amazon:
Popular blogger and cookbook author Drummond shares the story of her courtship and marriage to her husband, whom she refers to as Marlboro Man. Though Drummond grew up in Oklahoma, she never imagined she'd end up there for good. After four years of college in Los Angeles, Drummond was only making a pit stop home before moving to Chicago. A chance encounter with a devastatingly masculine cowboy in a local bar changes everything. Though several months elapse before Marlboro Man calls her, the spark between them ignites as soon as they start dating. A rancher with deep roots in the land he works, Marlboro Man isn't going anywhere, which means Drummond has to decide whether, to be with him, she"s willing to give up her dream of moving to Chicago. By the time Marlboro Man proposes, the decision is made, and Drummond prepares to marry the love of her life and discover what being a rancher's wife will entail. Charming and bright, Drummond�s story will be an inspiration to those who despair of finding old-fashioned, lasting love. --Kristine Huntley

I loved this book! I've been a fan of Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman, for years. Twice I've been lucky enough to meet her when she's been touring to promote her two books. {You can read those posts here and here.} Having been a reader of hers for so long, I kind of feel like I know her. You know, in that "I don't really know you but I read about your life" kind of way. After reading this book I feel like I "know" her a little bit better. I loved reading about her romance with "Marlboro Man". Even though I know how it "turned out", I still got caught up in the story & got anxious as to what would happen a time or two. I would highly recommend this book to anyone!

Yep, that's the only book I finished in April. I did start the following book though, so be looking forward to it in next month's post.
