49 The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff

I found the premise very interesting, especially because I didn’t know much about the topic. However, I enjoyed the modern day story component so much more than Ann Eliza’s. I felt the writing style and tone was very accurate, but I found her to be downright annoying. I assumed her boss at times.

50 Jumpstart the Work by Catherine Ryan Hyde

Read this one so fast, didn’t realize it was YA fix. I loved the story, although I wish Wilbur wasn’t gay… I wanted him and Elle to end up together.

51 This is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz

I liked it, I liked how it is set in Jersey and I knew a lot of the places he was writing about. I didn’t realize at first it was told from a few different characters’ perspectives, so that was a little confusing.

52 Heads or Tails by Leslie Gordon

A woman takes her friend’s baby while she recovers from postpartum depression. Chick lit for sure, I liked it except I felt the author was repetitive at times, and talked about stupid stuff way too much.

My endless stream of musings and rambling thoughts stem from my loquacious tendencies and intrinsic need to communicate with members of society. Mostly this blog is a place for me to talk about my passions - teaching, reading, cooking, my family, my lover - and is a tool for me to work on being more introspective.
