Book Review

I haven't always been a big reader. In fact, I think I have a "Cliff's Notes" copy of every book that we were assigned to read all during high school (I hope Mrs. Boyer or Mrs. McLean never read this... actually, I'm sure they already know that). Since high school, I've never really had much free time to read books for pleasure. However, now that I finished my masters degree in June and I flew quite a bit during July, I have found a new love for reading. I think purchasing a Nook helped too--- it's just so convenient!

I read Look Me in the Eyes, which is about a man with Autism Spectrum Disorder and really enjoyed it... however, my favorite book of the month would be Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons. Absolutely hilarious novel about five wives who live on the same block who start a book club that takes them through all of life's joys and hardships over 30 years together. Each chapter is written by different characters and it tells each story so real and genuinely that everyone can relate. A terrific summer read!
