WHAT I READ LAST
This book was uplifting in more ways than one! I figured this would be a fluff read with no thinking involved but I am glad I was wrong. Yes, there were funny parts but mostly this book was about women in all shapes, sizes, and walks of life. There were cancer survivors, divorcees, teens, elderly, transvestites, and tired nursing moms. The author, Natalee, presents all these women with humor, dignity, and humility. We learn along with her the many struggles women have about their body image and society’s expectations of them. The author’s writing is light and easy to read and we learn about her dealing with her mother’s death and dad’s bad health. I highly recommend this very empowering book on women.
WHAT I AM READING NEXT
Joe never wanted to come back to Arnhill. After the way things ended with his old gang–the betrayal, the suicide, the murder–and after what happened when his sister went missing, the last thing he wanted to do was return to his hometown. But Joe doesn’t have a choice. Because judging by what was done to that poor Morton kid, what happened all those years ago to Joe’s sister is happening again. And only Joe knows who is really at fault.
