I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

When I initially started Bitter is the New Black, I was appalled by the main character. At the time I didn't realize that Jen Lancaster was, very bravely and honestly, painting a picture of what she was like before she evolved into a woman I could easily look up to. The evolution of Jen is touching and inspiring. Her story prompted me to take a harder look at some of my own less flattering traits, and trust me, there are plenty to bear the scrutiny. She's funny, sarcastic, witty, and very, very clever. I loved her writing style and enjoyed her growth and success even more. I will definitely check out her other books and look forward to the insight and belly laughs that a trip to Jensylvania are sure to bring.
