Tell Me Tuesday is a weekly blog feature put on by La La in the Library. It is where we discuss what we have been reading and look forward to reading. What have you read lately? Tell Us!
What I Read Last
This was a funny and quirky read. It had some sweet mother daughter moments. I wasn’t a fan of the way the book was written. Much of the story was told through emails, letters, and interviews. Also, there were a lot of characters to keep track of. However, I would recommend it if you enjoy reading something different.
What I Am Reading Now
Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
This book has been into an HBO mini series. I have not seen it yet but have heard great things.

What I Am Reading Next
I thought this book sounded interesting. I received it via First to Read.
A stunning debut about a girl who has learned how to survive – but not how to live.
Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend.
Eleanor Oliphant is fine. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except sometimes, everything.
No-one’s ever told Eleanor life should be better than fine. But with a simple act of kindness she’s about to realise exactly how much better than fine life can be.
(see what I did there? haha)
I still have the 2 senior foster dogs. It seems I may have them for awhile since they are not even up for adoption yet. They are on a medical hold due to their age. The law states that the dogs need to be neutered before being adopted but due to their age and some of the results on their blood tests, it would be too dangerous to their health. So I am just waiting to see what happens. But for now I am enjoying watching them get stronger and happier every day. Here is the 15 year old, Dash, taking a nap on my chair.
