february this and that

my easy reading recommendation:

The Slippery Year
A Meditation on Happily Ever After

by Melanie Gideon

Funny, and extremely relatable.

My slightly deeper, but very engrossing read recommendation:

the possiblity of everything
a memoir

by Hope Edelman

Thought it might be too heavy for me this month,
but I found it to be a very unique subject matter for a mom to be writing about
and she kept my interest from the first page to the last.

my biggest dissappoint, don't waste your time on this book tip:

No Time to Wave Goodbye

by Jacquelyn Mitchard

A huge disappointment. 

 Felt like it was written just to be a sequel movie to The Deep End of the Ocean.
Took me foreverrrrr to get through it. But once I start a book I can't just stop reading it.

I LOVEDDDD Deep End of the Ocean, and was VERY disappointed by this one!

holy cow, i used to WORK with hope edelman!! (well, at the same company. her friends are my friends although she would not know me if i came up and exclaimed HOPE EDELMAN, I WORKED WITH YOU!!") which i surely would not do. hello, how stalker crazy would that be??

love love LOVE your blog header!! the clouds = my fave!

gina said...

That would be crazy stalker but fun to read about on your blog afterwards. ;) My ex MIL loved her Motherless Daughters book years ago, so when I saw this one (also a true story) I figured it was worth a read- and it was. A little travel description heavy but still interesting enough to enjoy!

gina said...

And thanks about the header, I was starting to second guess it- it's very bright after last month's. I love anything heart shaped- their not just for February anymore. ;)

I usually can't give up a book once I've started to read it either. No matter how bad it is.

Thanks for stopping by my site the other day. I've been sick so it's taken me a few days to return the favor.

You have a beautiful blog. I love all your photographs. I also really like the picture of your little girl in the penguin. So cute. Lia

Salt said...

This is such a cool idea for a blog post. :)
You've given me lots of good material to pass the time on this boring morning!

I love your blog! I'm so glad you stopped by mine so I could find it!

Caution Flag said...

Thanks for the quick reviews. Those are the very best kind :)

Wendy said...

Thank you for saving hours of my life that would've been wasted on reading No Time To Wave Goodbye. Too bad.

Love the picture of Mackenna!

You're very sweet (I'm referring to your "Post a Comment" message).

Your header is gorgeous. Thanks for the book recommendations, but I pretty much only read blogs during the school year (and I'm stinking at that lately!) Some day...

Off to read the Valentine story! :)

Thanks for joining in FF --you're a pro already :)
