book club friday

please excuse the spacing issues via blogger. thanks.

i'm linking up with heather today from blond...undercover blonde for book club friday.
so last time i linked up i was reading this.....
BIG.WASTE.OF.TIME! the first couple of stories were ok actually, but then i kept reading. bad idea. i stopped reading half way through. i've only done that once before with a book. this book is a book club read and i think the concensus with the rest of the girls is that they think it sucks too. moving on....

i've heard great things about this author and this book in particular has gotten really good reviews. it's about 3 adult sisters who learn some things about their mom late in her life. getting to see her as a real person, not just their mother.

as i get older i find myself more and more seeing my mom as a woman and it is kind of a strange thing because she's always just been my mom. i'm just starting the book and so far so good.

next up.....

i cannot wait to start this. LOVE the storyline and the reviews are great. i live and die by the reviews on

what are you reading this weekend?


  1. I hate when a book disappoints like that!! I hope the next ones impress.

    Thanks for linking up again!

  2. I hate when I book doesn't live up to the hype or disappoints you. I am one of those people who can't stop reading a book even it is really bad, I have only done that once.

    Thanks for linking up!

  3. I had to put down a book last week too. It made me feel bad but there really was no other choice because it was so brutal. I'm really looking forward to your review for "The Midwife's Confession." I've heard a lot about it too and it's supposed to be great.

  4. I'm really, really into the book "Firefly Lane" by Kristin Hannah right now - read it and let me know how you like it! :)

  5. I am reading "Committed" by Elizabeth Gilbert. It's the sequel to Eat Pray Love. Love your blog!! I am your newest follower!

  6. Thanks for the recommendation, I really want to read "For my Daughters" now.
