The End of A Good Read!
On Rememberence Day, John and I lazed around all day in our jammies. Even after having had a shower, I just put on a clean pair of jammies! It was fantastic!! We got up, had breakfast, watched TV, read our books, he played Xbox and we just hung out. It was so relaxing. I finished my book (I am on a readig kick now) and I have to say it was sooooo good that at times I was laughing out loud and there was twice when tears were rolling down my face. I love books like that!! Now, after having finished it, I am actually kind of sad that its finished! If you are in the mood for a good, fluffy, but cute read..I highly reccommend Jennifer Weiner's "Little Earthquakes". I have read a few of her other books and they are all good but this one was by far my favorite of her's yet!!
Little Earthquakes: by Jennifer Weiner
First comes love. Then comes marriage. And then things start to get really interesting...
In Jennifer Weiner's richest, wittiest, most true-to-life novel yet, this highly acclaimed storyteller brings readers a tale of romance, friendship, forgiveness, and extreme sleep deprivation, as three very different women navigate one of life's most wonderful and perilous transitions: the journey of new motherhood.
Rebecca Rothstein-Rabinowitz is a plump, sexy chef who has a wonderful husband, supportive friends, a restaurant that's received citywide acclaim, a beautiful baby girl...and the mother-in-law from hell.
Kelly Day's life looks picture-perfect. But behind the doors of her largely empty apartment, she's struggling to balance work and motherhood and marriage, while entering Oliver's every move (and movement) on a spreadsheet, and dealing with an unemployed husband who seems content to channel-surf for eight hours a day.
And Ayinde Towne is already on shaky ground, trying to live her life to the letter of a how-to guide called Baby Success, when her basketball superstar husband breaks her trust at the most vulnerable moment in her life, putting their marriage in peril — and their new family even more in the public eye.
Then there's Lia Frederick, a Philadelphia native who has just come home, leaving Los Angeles behind, along with her glamorous Hollywood career, her husband, and a tragic secret, to start her life all over again.
With her trademark warmth and humor, Weiner tells the story of what happens after happily ever after...and how an eight-pound bundle of joy can shake up every woman's sense of herself in the world around her.
From prenatal yoga to postbirth sex, from sisters and husbands to mothers and mothers-in-law, Little Earthquakes is a frank, funny, fiercely perceptive Diaper Genie-eye view of the comedies and tragedies of love and marriage.
