Week in Review

This last week I read and finished Mercy by Jodi Picoult and started The No. 1 Ladies' Dectective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith. I really enjoyed Mercy and the thoughts it brought forth. Such as, if you truly love someone do you let go or do you hold on tight?

Personally, I think that question is really loaded. You have to take in a lot of factors and even with a lot of thought, sometimes the right answer is not the answer you should make. So, do you make the right answer or the correct answer? Deep stuff. It's not always easy to let the person you love leave when there are a lot of unanswered questions that turn into a bunch of what if questions.

The No. 1... is not starting out like I expected. I had heard good things about it, but I can't remember what it was exactly. It seems like a slow start so I am hoping it gets good soon or I will be sad. Not sure if I will be going to the library this week or try to get through the stacks I already have at home!

I'm reading "Plain Truth" by Jodi Picoult right now. I've heard SO many good things about her books and I'm enjoying it so far! I want to read 'My Sister's Keeper' before the movie comes out!

I've read Plain Truth and I really enjoyed it. There haven't been many of hers that I have not enjoyed. I think I've only not liked one that I've read and was iffy on another. My Sister's Keeper wasn't as thrilling as I thought it was going to be, but it was a good one! I am interested in seeing the movie.
