Tuesday Teaser ~ Fave Books of 2011

From Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman:
p. 119 "That masked man is Earl Jenkins. He's a policeman and he's married. Just look at him. I've always said he's only one step above a bait-shop dealer."

I continue to read a few pages of this book, get caught up in another book which I finish, then return to read a bit more of CeeCee Honeycutt. A prepubescent girl who relocates from Ohio to live with her aunt in Savannah, Georgia, learns about life and Southern ways via the assorted the women whose divergent characteristics reveal these lessons in engaging scenarios. The harshest lessons come from her parents who are unable to rear their child. CeeCee Honeycutt saves herself.

Great post - thanks for sharing!
I haven't actually read any of the books you've mentioned but I'd love to get my hands on some of the ones that are on your 'favourites' list - especially the book by Stephen King.

Hi Pooch,

I have had this book on my reading list for some time now, although when I shall actually get around to reading it is another matter entirely.

Having read the full synopsis, I am intrigued to know just how those teaser lines fit into the storyline, they sound quite sinister and troubling.

That teaser is interesting; rather insulting but intersting.

I knit too!!!

Here is mine
