“some things don't matter much. Like the color of a house. How big is that in the overall scheme of life? But lifting a person's heart--now, that matters. The whole problem with people is...they know what matters, but they don't choose it...The hardest thing on earth is choosing what matters.” Worth Reading, Bees, Secret Life, Books Worth, His Monk, Movie, Favorite Book, Monk Kidd, The Secret

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd: "...taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters, Lily is introduced to a mesmerizing world of bees, honey, and the Black Madonna who presides over their household..." My favorite book I read in 2014
"Someone who thinks death is the scariest thing doesn't know a thing about life." Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd - Lily is a fourteen-year-old white southern runaway, who seeks shelter with three eccentric black beekeeping sisters. August, the oldest sister, introduces Lilly to the world of bees and the Black Madonna, which is the reason Lilly sought the sisters out in the first place. I would encourage the author to write a sequel to this wonderfully vibrant book.
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. I thought this was a very good book. There were lots of times where I just couldn't put it down. Very cute. (+15)
'The Secret Life of Bees' by Sue Monk Kidd: After her "stand-in mother," a bold black woman named Rosaleen, insults the three biggest racists in town, Lily Owens, whose life has been defined by the tragic death of her mother, joins Rosaleen on a journey to Tiburon, South Carolina, where they are taken in by three black, bee-keeping sisters who show them the true meaning of love and family.
The Secret Life of Bees : Sue Monk Kidd. Set in South Carolina in 1964, The Secret Life of Bees tells the story of Lily Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed. Taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters, Lily is introduced to their mesmerizing world of bees and honey, and the Black Madonna. This is a remarkable novel about divine female power.
Susan Monk Kidd- "The Secret Life of Bees" A book worth savouring and sharing.

This is one of my all time favorite books. Love it, go get it, READ it!

To Kill a Mockingbird is a Pulitzer Prize winning novel worth reading a few times! Have you read this inspirational novel?
"As you grow older, you'll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don't you forget it - whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, he is trash.” ― Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird #books #read #HarperLee
Harper Lees To Kill A Mockingbird is timeless! A must read for those who haven't yet . . My favorite book in high school I stole the book and just bought a new one last year for the anniversary of it's being published.

Beach reading essential. One of my mother's favorite books... I can still see it lying on the back of the sofa open waiting for her to pick it back up again.
This is THE Book definitely worth reading *****Publication Date: 1966**** "This is a world where sex is a success weapon, where love is the smiling mask of hate, where slipping youth and fading beauty are ever-present specters. It is a world where the magic tickets to peace or oblivion are 'dolls' - the insider's word for pills - pep pills, sleeping pills, ...and pills to chase the truth away." .. one of my favorites that I reread a few times!
Jacqueline Susann's Valley of the Dolls. The "adult" book we all read in high school.
