Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Being stuck in the house all day I’ve been finding much opportunity to actually sit down (ok, lay down) and get lost in a book. I saw a preview that this book is being made into a tv series and I’ve had this book in my “must read” for a while now and this was the perfect time to get to it.

I did not want this book to end! I was so invested in each character and wanted the story to go on. The message that I took from this book is like the quote says “Don’t throw stones at your neighbors, if your own windows are glass”. Lots of drama, but I found myself getting choked up when these characters face obstacles with they’re families and loved ones. Awesome book, go check it out!

Heartburn by Nora Ephron

Rachel is in her third trimester of pregnancy when she finds out her husband is having an affair with a family friend.  From that sentence alone, you would think this is a serious story, but that is so far from the truth.  I had moments where I was literally laughing out loud at the wittiness of the author.  Reading this book, I am reminded that if you don’t laugh through the hard times you’ll break.  I recommend this to anyone who wants a light read and in need of a little chuckle here and there. I do wish that this book was a little longer, I finished this book in just a few hours with breaks in between.  It had me craving more.

My Weekend in Pics

My weekend was a little weird because I had to work on Sunday.  Still, the time that I spent with my family was awesome!  My mom, sis and I took the kids to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles- I didn’t think I would enjoy it but it turned out to be a pretty funny movie.  I had some good food, did a little shopping, finished reading The Giver, watched the latest episodes of Under the Dome, and even fit in a nice glass of wine.  Sometimes it’s just being lazy and surrounded my loved ones that make a great time!
