Three Book Reviews: I've been reading a TON lately, especially thanks to the Kindle my in-laws bought me for Christmas! Here are three more reviews for books I read this month - about to finish another that's really good - can't wait to see how it turns out (called Elisabeth Naughton's Wait For Me).
Rachel Schurig's Three Girls and a Leading Man was the third (and at the time I thought last) in a series of these books. The first followed Ginny with her baby, the second followed Jenn with a wedding, and the third followed Annie in her quest to become an actress. I loved it because Ginny and Jenn were in it so you got to see what happened to them, and it was a good story as Annie found her career and found a guy - super cute and I enjoyed it just as I did the other two. I finished this book sad that I was done with them... until I found out there was one more! 4/5!
Tracy Brogan's Crazy Little Thing told Sadie's story, a woman who had just gone through a divorce from her cheating husband and was looking to move on with her two kids. She decided to spend the summer on the beach with her eccentric aunt. At first I was like meh, this is going to be standard, nothing special, but it was free (true story - Kindle's lending library!). BUT, the writing was hilarious. I loved the characters, especially the aunt and her cousin Fontaine, and I enjoyed reading about her new relationship with a doctor down the street, his past and of course the drama between her and her jerk of an ex-husband. It was a good book - would definitely recommend as a beach read. 4.5/5!
So yes, I"m clearing getting some reading in. I'm also squeezing in some workouts. Like I said, each day gets a bit more normal, but really it's new normal and better normal - I just love being a mom!!
Q: Read any good books lately? Cooked anything yummy?
Q: What are you up to this weekend? I am celebrating my nephew's second birthday tomorrow - can't wait to see him!
