This was so much better than I expected. Molly Ringwald can write! This book is made up of interconnected short stories that deal with issues of infidelity, infertility, and familial estrangement, among others. I related to so much of it, and it gave me insights into some difficult issues. The chapter entitled When It Happens To You is a killer.

Highly recommended.

I just bought her other book, Getting The Pretty Back, described as:

Yep. Next up!!

A bookish idea!

I’ve been thinking about this for a while:

I need a friend who also does Book Of The Month Club, with whom I can swap books. The proposal: we each pick a different book every month and then swap.

Unfortunately, the only person I know who subscribes is Freya’s mom (at least according to what Frey says), and I’m hesitant to ask her because she might find that weird. Lol. Idk. We aren’t friends necessarily, though we’ve certainly gotten more chatty with each other.

Anyway…I love this idea of having a group that does book swaps, but I don’t know any locals who love to read as much as I do.
