Book Review - Cross Country

I was wanting to leave my fiction reading until after lent but when I had the opportunity to read this book for free, I decided to go ahead and read it.  Since it only took me a few evenings to read it, it didn't seem to be too distracting.

This book is the latest in the Alex Cross series.  If you've never read James Patterson before and are interested in "thriller type" books then he is a definite read.  He's a little more gruesome than John Grisham but not too much.  It is possible to read the latest book without having read the rest of the series but a lot of things really make a whole lot more sense if you've followed the character throughout.  If you love Alex Cross... keep reading because most likely, you'll like this one as well.

Well, I'm off to begin something a little more "lent worthy,"  The Ascetic of Love.  A blessed lenten season to you all.

In love and recovery,

Daylight Savings Change

After 14 years of dealing with children and daylight savings time, I've come to a conclusion. Whoever created daylight savings time, did NOT have children!

Book Review - Mom, Jason's Breathing on Me!

I have to admit I was really drawn to this book by the title  :-)  With 4 children, someone is always breathing on someone else and if they aren't breathing on someone else, they are just breathing.  My oldest in particular has a hard time with the fact that her brother "breathes."  I definitely learned some interesting things.  Some things I was already doing and some things I have been adding to my bag of tricks since reading the book.  If you have more than one child, I would definitely read this book.  Although I do recommend this book, it does have a lot of "fluff." I enjoyed the author's vignettes but after awhile, they did get to be a little irritating, so if you are reading this book, you may want to start "skimming" after awhile.

In love and recovery,
