Sunday Book Club: A Little Life

This week has been CRAZY.  Getting four kids back in school, learning my new routine (which, by the way, I’ve failed miserably at.  I think I’ve missed about 4 things that I was supposed to do), and just having little fires to put out (My car is dying.  A long, very expensive death.), I’ve just… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: A Little Life

The book is written as a story-within-a-story.  Basic characters who don’t seem to have any relationship come together at the end.  The book ends in a satisfactory way. I adored… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: The History of Love
