I likes to read. Although I’ve got to say that this past month I have read a lot less than usual. I wasn’t that busy…hmm…guess I was lazy;) But I did come across a few *gems* this month.
Good in Bed, other than having a very mischievous (and if you are carrying this book in public-embarrassing) title also features a wonderfully warm and funny story about the (love) life of an overweight journalist. This would make a really good (not lame) romantic comedy if it ever became a movie. Super fun read.
Charming Billy is a wonderfully written, melancholy book. It’s characters are defined by each other as they are all seemingly one big Irish-American family living in New York. It’s a love lost story told in a nonlinear fashion so that by the time the author fills in the blanks they mean even more than they would have had they story been told in chronological order. Really great literature.
Yeah, I read it this month. Timing is everything, am I right? I enjoy the news and NPR as much as the next girl but I had not taken the time to read this until now. It’s very good, sort of inspiring in a way. Yes, he always talks like a law professor. But he also tells stories about how he met his wife and special moments with his daughters. Those were my favorite parts:)
What have you read this month?
