Book Bites

Say it Rah-shay By Mar 07, 2011 No Comments


My pile of to be read books has gotten quite out of control*. At the rate the books have piled up I may never die. Or at the least I am so going to need to start working part time so that I can catch up with what I am reading.
On the nightstand Piled at the bottom of the steps:

Project Happily Ever After by Alisa Bowman.
I’m almost finished this memoir about a woman on the brink of divorce who chooses to fight for her marriage. This book was born from Alisa’s blog of practical relationship advice and is a must read  for anyone in any type of relationship. Reading Alisa’s thoughts and approach to her relationship with her husband I find myself thinking that married or single the advice she shares, her perception of the person she is and was and the honest look at her marriage makes me approach my relationship with Effin Guy differently. Alisa’s voice is not preachy or judgemental. She just offers common sense advice that helped her keep her marriage alive.

Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck.
Pop and I are both reading copies of this book. She’s actually on book 2 to be precise. So far I like the book although the helicopter mom in me cannot get past the fact that the main character, a seventeen year old names Kelsey, was given the OK to travel ALONE through India with a tiger. The copy I am reading is an Advanced Reader’s Copy and the final edition may be different but so far I love the way Colleen writes. Kelsey is a teen, not a smart ass, a know it all or any other cookie cutter teen that I’ve been reading way too often. I’m anxious to get back to the book and see what happens next.

The Midnight Show Murders: by Al Roker and Dick Loatch
Al Roker’s Billy Blessings is back this time on the West Coast caught up in murder and mayhem in Tinseltown. It’s a fast read; I just started yesterday and I am halfway through. If I think what I think is going to happen (yes, I did just type THAT) then I am going to be a tad perturbed. Anywho, its a fun read and it kept me away from my hooking yesterday.

Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
The movie was OK, it felt as if something were missing which is why I reached for the book. I love Elizabeth’s writing, her search for herself, a spiritual home and love. I have literally laughed out loud at parts and maybe, just maybe may begin meditating and some yoga.

Cinderella, Ninja Warrior by Maureen McGowan
Yes. You’ve read that right.
I’ve on just started it but The Bee seemed ready to read along and I wanted to make sure she wasn’t reading smut.
From the galley:
In this fast-paced story full of adventure and romance, Cinderella is more than just a servant girl waiting for her prince–she’s a tough, fearless girl who is capable of taking charge of a dangerous situation. Seeking to escape the clutches of her evil stepmother, Cinderella perfects her ninja skills and magic talents in secret, waiting for the day when she can break free and live happily ever after. In a special twist, readers have the opportunity to make key decisions for Cinderella and decide where she goes next–but no matter the choice; the result is a story unlike any fairy tale you’ve ever read!

What are you reading this week?

*Seriously! Two days ago I tripped over the pile as I attempted to make my way around the cat and this almost invisible wire string she has strewn throughout the house.


I am mom, daughter, sister, yarn lover, word lover, crazy cat lady and library chick. Find me with book or with hook and a hot cuppa.
