My Name is Memory

by Ann Brashares (audiobook)

My Name is Memory

About the Book

“Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remembers it all. For all the times that he and Sophia have been connected throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart.

But just when Sophia (now “Lucy” in the present) finally awakens to the secret of their shared past, the mysterious force that has always separated them reappears. Ultimately, they must come to understand what stands in the way of their love if they are ever to spend a lifetime together.”

My Thoughts

This is the story of a man who can remember each of the lives he has lived and is on a quest to right a wrong and finally connect with the woman he loves. I highly recommend the audiobook for this title because there are two narrators. The male voice narrates Daniel’s past lives and the female narrates the present. Both narrators have good accents. It’s always my opinion that the narrator makes or breaks the audiobook. I can’t wait to listen to the sequel and see what happens next.

It’s difficult to believe that this is the same author who writes the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books. This novel is mature.

Love, love, loved it!

Sister of My Heart by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni is an amazing story! Beautifully written book. And In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez is one of my favorites of all time. What an awesome goal to have! I might have to set up my own goal for reading more in 2011!

I read all the Sookie Stackhouse books…like you said, very light reading. Easy, quick, and fun….perfect way to escape the world of D in the brief moments we have šŸ™‚

I was about to start a deep book today and after a few minutes of listening (it was an audiobook) I switched back to a Sookie Stackhouse instead. I think I’m on Dead in the Family.

I love to read! I also do audiobooks when I am cleaning or in the car. It’s a nice distraction. If you haven’t already found it, http://www.goodreads.com is kind of fun for keeping track of the books you are reading, have read, and want to read. You can also “friend” people on their to see what your friends are reading. According to my bookshelves I read 76 books in 2009 and only 22 in 2010 ;( Now that could have been that I have been reading less, or keeping track less. Probably both since it has been a bad health year for me and this was the year Josh was diagnosed. I definitely hope to do better with my reading this year! So far I am off to a good start.
A few of us moms from our homeschool group meet once a month for a book club. These are the next few books we are planning to read: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Little Bee, Day After Night, The Bronze Horseman, The Winter of our Discontent, The Corrections, The Mistress of Nothing, and The Next Queen of Heaven. If you end up checking out Goodreads you can find me here: http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/2320381-wendy

Happy reading!!!

You inspired me to get back on Good Reads. I just entered all the books I’ve read or are on my list so far this year.

Thanks for the list and I’m friending you on Good Reads!
