book club friday!!

it's book club friday yo! yippee! yes, i do get this excited over books. i'm a nerd. deal with it people! i'm hooking up with heather again from blonde...undercover blonde.
so, last time i linked up i was just starting this book

i really really liked this book, but it didn't start getting really good until almost halfway through. it had great love stories and also the very real dynamics of a mother/daughter relationship. in my opinion that relationship is the most intense relationship there is. during my first pregnancy when i found out i was having a girl i immediately started praying and now having 2 girls, i know why i did that. my relationship w/ my first daughter esp. is so hard. she makes me work mentally and emotionally, but i guess i wouldn't have it any other way. she's awesome.
anyhoo, back to the book. it was really good. i would recommend it. so much so that i'm now reading this...

i thought i was gonna be reading the midwife's confession next, but when i went to retrieve it from my pile of books waiting to be read i found that i wasn't there. i searched and searched and realized i had never ordered it from my trusty so that's what i did. and while i wait i'll be reading the lovely book aforementioned.

unlike before my daughters, family tree starts out with a bang. in the first 15 pages we find out that a happily married white couple who conceived a baby the old fashioned way (and there was no affair) give birth to a black baby girl. say what?? exactly. it had me at the cover really. so once i'm done here, i will finally get around to the midwife's confession. ya'll know i've been dying to get my hands on that bad boy.

have a great weekend and head on over to heather's blog and tell me what you're reading!


  1. Whoa, what?! Okay, now I'm interested! Let me know what you think when you're done!
