Weekly Roundup 6/10


I spent the majority of the week on vacation, reading in front of beautiful water. I took Still Alice by Lisa Genova with me. I know...I think I'm one of the last people to read this. It just escaped me when it was first published, but after reading Left Neglected earlier this year (and loving it!), I went back and picked this up. Genova has an amazing ability, with both of these books, for you to really internalize the medical issues of her main characters.

I also read Seven-Year Bitch by Jennifer Belle. It was an ideal vacation read...easy, fun, light, humorous.

For my weekend reading, I picked up Summer Rental by Mary Kay Andrews (one of my favorite Southern authors) and To Be Sung Underwater by Tom McNeal.

Finally, I did way more eating out than in this week, but I did make my favorite topping for spaghetti, Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter, the night I got home. Clean and simple (three ingredients!).

I hadn't heard of any of those books on your list, but thanks for sharing, now I'm atleast aware of them and can look out for them when I'm book browsing. Thanks.

Still Alice was wonderful IMO. I envy your time away in the sun.

I just read a great review of Seven-Year Bitch; pretty much in line with your assessment of a great vacation read.

I've seen blurbs about To Be Sung Underwater all over the blogosphere but have yet to see a review; I hope you are enjoying it :)

Don't worry... you are not the last person to read Still Alice. That would be me! I have both of her books on my must read list this year. BTW, your vacation sounds wonderful!
