I tried my best (kinda) to finish the recent books for the Nestie book club and I’ve failed! I didn’t finish Revolutionary Road (and after hearing the discussion don’t plan to). This month’s selection was A Freewheelin’ Time. It was a memoir about the author Suze Roloto who dated Bob Dylan in the 60s. I probably read half of it but I lost interest and just started flipping through the pages. My copy was large print and that was annoying me too. It was way over due at the library (sorry whoever wanted it weeks ago!) so I just gave up and returned it. I’m interested to see what everyone else thinks of it at our meeting Wed night (I think the only thing I liked was her name!).
I’ve moved on to more fun books for the end of the summer. I just finished Rebecca Wells newest, The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Ponder, which I really enjoyed. This is the same author of the Ya-ya books which made me laugh & cry just like Calla did. It was a great beach read while I was at the beach on Saturday.
Next up is Toni McGee Causey’s Bobbie Faye’s Family Jewels. I loved the first book about Bobbie Faye which I read on our honeymoon and this one looks equally as funny. I must be in a LA book mood because it’s the setting for both my most current reads!
I’m also looking forward to next month when we’re reading Julie & Julia (if I can ever get it from the library!!). Happy reading to me.
