I'm here I'm here...or well everywhere at once I think. Got the girls started back up in school here a couple of weeks ago and I got myself a new job. I will say that getting a new job in your early 40's after doing the same thing for the last 18 years has been a struggle and although I've been at the new job now about a month, I'm still not use to the hours and the schedule and the never having any time to myself anymore...I mean really...how do you people do this every single day? I can hardly find the time to read...and I'm about to lose my freakin' mind. Now admittedly I have been spoiled for quite sometime only working 30-32 hours a week and I appreciated every one of those hours I didn't have to work but this 40+ hours a week is for the birds...trying to decide what my next course of action should be. Being that I haven't had time to even read (as mentioned above) one can assume that I have not been able to scrap either and that would be a fair assumption so in order to keep up with my own desires and demands (this blog being a bit of both) I have decided to share my Goodreads reviews with you so that maybe there is a bit for everyone.
Not sure which of you out there do read, nor for that matter what you read but I thought that this would be a good time to try this hair-brained idea out...lucky you! So to get us started I threw one on here that I read several months ago and really enjoyed and being that this is a new idea I will probably only share with you the books that I either really enjoyed or that really made me think, to start with anyhow, then maybe if that goes well I'll venture into sharing more of the not-so-good reviews how does that sound?
So for today I'm sharing my review of What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty, it's super short as most of my reviews are at this point but I hope that you enjoy this new aspect of my blog. By chance if you do have any questions or comments please feel free to let me know and I'll be happy to listen and respond.
Hope all of you are doing something wonderful and enjoying the journey.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I cannot stop thinking about Alice and Nick and all the trials they endured, how they each one in their own way never gave up or gave in and made their happy-ever-after come true. A very good read indeed; thought provoking and emotionally challenging.
Thanks so much!
