The Help

Yes, I got this book not too long ago. From this Mr.'s grandma. One day, after dinner, we were talking about books. And she couldn't believe that I hadn't read this book. I know. Being the big reader that I am, how had I missed this one?

On the way home that night, I started reading. Heck, I was reading out loud. To the Mr. himself. Although, he'd never read this book, he quite enjoyed the chapter that I read. He told me, it sorta reminded him of his Nanny. Yes, he and his sisters, they had Nannies. Because their dad, traveled a lot!

In short, I LOVED this book! And it reminded me so much of my childhood, with my Auntie Chuchie. Talk about enjoying a book! If you haven't read it, run out and buy it. Right now! Don't hesitate.

If you are like me, you like to read the book, before watching the movie. And this is definitely one of those books, that you want to read first. It let's your imagination get to work. And find the most perfect place for these characters. What a charming book!

And after reading this book, grandma and I have planned a Girl's Day. All about the females in the family. Taking a day off, to watch this movie! And have some fun. Of course, there will be tons and tons of food. Now I can't wait until August! ♥

Yes, I loved the book too! I've read it 3 times. :) I got to see it on Wednesday. Such a good movie. Definitely not as good as the book. But still a good movie. I hope you enjoy it too!
