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!).
