My recent excess of spare time has led to a few positive outcomes, though, including some amaaaaazing books! It has gotten to the point where I'm embarrassed to show my face at the library, seriously. I'm always afraid they're going to roll their eyes and say..."You again?! Jesus, woman, how much can one person READ?" But they haven't so far, so here's hoping! Anyway, I've been able to increase my reading time by craaazy proportions, and here's the top 3 I've read recently:
Whiter than Snow - Sandra Dallas
The Sweet By and By - Todd Johnson
I really liked this book! It was equal parts funny AND touching, which is rare. This novel is told through 5 different narrators of different ages and races. Two of the women are in a nursing home, one is a nurse in the nursing home, one is a hairdresser for the ladies in the nursing home, and the last is the daughter of the nurse. All of these women’s lives come together in this novel in a very poignant way, and it was incredibly moving to see each character change and grow in her own way. The nursing home scenes, in particular, were extremely heartbreaking.
Weekends at Bellevue - Julie Holland
