Okay. Since Monique asked what book I decided to read first, I'm going to let you all know. (And, a big thank you to Monique for actually reading my drivel! I sometimes think I'm talking to myself on here. Which is normal, by the way. You know. Talking to yourself. I'm not the only one who does that, right? RIGHT? Anyone??? ahem... sorry.)
Because I didn't want to be a total failure in my first attempt at this whole reading thing, I chose wisely.
Which means two things.
1. I chose a book that didn't have a ton of pages
2. I chose a book that was free on Kindle.
My reasoning was, if I did disappoint myself then at least I didn't shell out any bucks doing it.
Amazon , there you will find the book that I tackled first. And, you don't even have to pay anything to read it!
I suppose I should also add that I chose this book because of the storyline. A character who has recently lost her father, dealing still with grief from her baby dying years ago.... it seemed like we had a few things in common.
I found the main character, Bernadette, to be hilariously funny. And sad at the same time. This book takes you along on her journey to rediscovering just who she is and what it means to really live life. The characters are quirky, a quality that I find endearing. I had a hard time putting this book down. I found myself making excuses to feed Renata just so that I could sit and read another chapter. And, it was a super easy read. I think I finished it in 3 days, which is astonishing for me.
You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll cheer for her to pick herself up again.
If anything, this is a total chick book. But, every now and again, it's nice to read a story that doesn't make your brain hurt!
Read the book. Then tell me what you thought. I'd love to hear it!
