Time Flies

Two days ago I started reading The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht. I'm on pg. 81, and so far it's Darn it! That's two in a row that have been hyped up, and are now disappointing me. Oh yeah, the other one was Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. I actually read 115 pages of that thing, and then refused to pick it up again. I need a recommendation of a book that I haven't read that I will love!

I did, however, read Waiting for Normal by Leslie Connor. It is a YA book, and was delightful! There are a ton of "mom" issues in the book, so if you have a student/child who is looking for a book to read, and may have this going in, it is great! You will actually get angry with this worthless mother. The worst part is there are women like this that exist.

As a complete aside, I started a new "eating healthier"/working out plan, and I lost five pounds in one day! No, seriously! My husby was telling me he lost five pounds in one night, and I was muttering under my breath and cursing men in general for their fast metabolisms, when I heaved my own butt onto the scale and BAM-five pounds down! I retract all of my cursing Lord. Source: The 17 Day Diet by Dr. Mike Moreno
