Last week I really tore into my summer reading list. One of the books one it was Standing in the Rainbow by Fannie Flagg. I loved it so much I read Welcome to the World, Baby Girl! and Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man right after it. I had already read Fried Green Tomatoes and A Redbird Christmas. Though I didn’t like Redbird and Daisy Fay as much as I liked the other books, I loved the way Flagg describes Southern culture. It’s what I love about Joshilyn Jackson’s gods in Alabama. It seems like the next best thing to experiencing Southern culture myself (something I would really like to do, by the way).
Flagg has one more book I haven’t read: Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven. Hope I can afford that one soon. And Jackson has a book coming out in March: The Girl Who Stopped Swimming. Can’t wait to read that one!!
As always: so many books, so little time!
