    If you haven't read it or seen the movie, The Time Traveler's Wife was a great book. I was crying so hard when I read it that my husband had to ask me what was wrong. Another good surprise book was The Elephant Keeper by Christopher Nicholsen. It's set back in the 1700's and is surpisingly entertaining and an easy read.

    Good luck with the bedrest. I had to be on bedrest with my last pregnancy for 11 weeks! I was so greatful to my mom who helped out with my 1 year old during that time. Take care.

    It depends on what type of books you like I just got done reading a three book series, I can't remember what the name of all of them are but one is definately Vegas Rich, I think one may be Vegas Sunset but there are three and they are great!!! At my job we listen to a lot of books since we do data entry and three of us listened to all of them and we all just wanted the story to keep going. I think they were some of the best books I have read but they are full of Drama and love stories so you have to like that type of book.

    I just finished Rose In A Storm by Jon Katz, and it had me in tears. A quick read, it's told from the perspective of a border collie named Rose who works on a farm. There's a gigantic blizzard and Rose and the farmer have to work incredibly hard to keep all the animals, and themselves, safe. Best book I've read in a long time. Good luck with your bedrest!

    I am an avid reader as well and I just finished the Luxe Novel series. Very good set back in the early 1900's in New York High Society. I wanted to keep reading after the 4 books were done. Luxe, Rumors, Envy, Splendor by Anna Godbersen.

    Also read The Guardian and A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks, Beastly by Alex Flinn (better then the movie), The Girl in the Gatehouse by Julie Klassen, The Lightkeepers Daughter, The Lightkeepers Bride and the Lightkeepers Ball by Colleen Cobble were amazing!!

    I have a Kindle from Amazon and I love it! I am able to download the first few chapters for free and then can purchase the book right on my device.
