It's pretty clear by now... I'm a book
nerd worm. In order to save a little money, I got a library card!!! I felt no older than seven years old filling out the form and signing the back of the card. I immediately began plucking books off the shelf- I made myself stop at four. I figured that was a good start!
Since coming home from Georgetown, I've worked my way through the following books:
(in reverse order, you know- to mix it up)
Fly Away Home
Coincidentally, I decided to read this book in the midst of the Arnold, um, controversy.... Fly Away Home was an interesting look at male politicians and, more importantly, the role of the women in their lives. I did like the references to Georgetown... even if they weren't entirely positive.
Good in Bed
Charming and funny, basically just an easy summer read!
The Silent Gift
Michael Landon Jr.
Eh, I didn't realize how strong the religious tones of the book would be. Nonetheless, the story was good and uplifting.
The Ivy Chronicles
Basically a hybrid of The Nanny Diaries and the documentary Nursery University. Witty and quite hilarious. I loved all the characters, especially the poor children caught up in their parent's own desires and ambitions. Apparently it's being turned into a movie.... definitely looking forward to it!
Your Voice in my Head
The PR firm promoting this book actually sent it to me. It's a memoir about a young women's personal experience with mental illness. The ups. The downs. And the constant psychologist she grew to trust. If you're into memoirs, it's worth a read. I read it in less than a day!
I can't wait to do another round up of books!!!
