Well, we are all in the midst of it.
What, you ask? In the midst of WHAT?
It’s true. At least I read something that says it’s true. Therefore: Totally true.
This may be why I can’t bring myself to buy a can of paint for the bedroom yet, nor to purchase the new rug for the eating area, in fact I’ve had a difficult time even looking at the perfectly decorated homes of other people. Nope, I just can’t do it. Because I know there are still pine needles stuck in my rugs.
So in case you are all out there avoiding decorating magazines and not finding any motivation to work on your own homes like moi, I’ve decided to share a few of my recent reads for you to continue to distract yourselves with:
I thought this book was interesting. Told from a completely different point of view than I’d ever seen, the main character is the wife of a German soldier during WWII, which made this book totally worth the time. Definitely recommend.
The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grisson
If you enjoyed The Help then you should enjoy this book. A much different take on slavery in America but still fascinating. A seven-year-old Irish orphan is forced to live and work as slave to an American family. While not nearly as good as The Help, I still really enjoyed it.
At this point, if you haven’t heard of the wildly successful Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, I can’t help you. Look it up and read it.
I’ve recommended it to everyone. EVERYONE.
After the holidays I finally had a chance to download her first two novels. They are both almost as good as GG. I’m in love with this author. Really, what could be better during the most depressing week of the year than two psychological thrillers, BOTH with lead characters that have WAY more problems than any of us could ever dream of? Not much.
Nazi’s. Slavery. Crazy people. Perfect for a depressing week! And all of them are WAY more interesting than shampooing rugs or removing wall paper, don’t ya think?
If you’ve ready anything good lately then link it up in the comments. I’m always looking for a new book!
