So for the past 2 months or so I've been on this reading frenzy. Bored of playing solitaire or reading the latest gossip rag on my commute to and from work, I discovered this mini library that some of my coworkers started. A book club if you will. The first book I read was The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger.
It was a fun trashy read. It's being made into a movie and Meryl Streep plays Miranda Priestly! I can't wait.
Next I read High Maintenence by Jennifer Belle.
This book I didn't enjoy as much. Yes it was trashy, but it started off very slow. I didn't really get into it until about half way through.
Next was Running In Heels by British author Anna Maxted.
(What can I say I dig trashy chick books...). This I highly enjoyed and was eager to read everyday to see how the protoganist dealt w/ her eating disorder and all that was associated w/ it.
So after finishing these 3 I wanted something a bit different. My coworker suggested I read Middlesex by Jeffery Eugenides, in fact she gave me her copy.
This is from the same author who wrote The Virgin Suicides, which I adored. Needless to say I am loving this book. Loving! I am about half way done w/ it, but already it's twisted story has sucked me in.
So my question to you is any good books out there you recommend?
I have also started reading Young, Fabulous & Broke by Suze Orman.
Some people on the PNS Explosion's blog recommended this book. When I heard the title I just about died, as it fits me to a "t". Honestly I have never been at one w/ my finances so as we are about to embark a move (more on that later) I figure now is a good time as any. It's a wonderful resource and I am learning so much about things I never even cared about before. Still not done w/ it but here's hoping I can take some of her advice and run with it.
So as I mentioned above, we are about to embark on a move. Yes a move. We have to move. Our landlord's ex-wife's elderly mother (that's a mouthful isn't it?) will be moving into our apartment so they can care for her. While it sucks, I understand it's family...but this is kind of a blessing in disguise as we have been wanting to move ever since our mouse problem worsened. We have until July 1st but I'd much rather move by June 1st as to not have to deal w/ a hot summer move. If all goes according to plan we'll be moving within the same neighborhood, as we love it so much. Wish us luck! Moving's a bitch...and the packing...ugh...don't get me started.
