Book Recommendations

Hey Friends I have a couple of books I wanted to share with you if you are looking for something to occupy your time in the evenings when you realize summer TV is really the absolute worse (mindy project please come back soon!!).  Ironically these two books are both memoirs and I can’t praise them enough!

The first book is Until I Say Good – bye, by Susan Spencer-Wendel.  Guys, this book is so moving and a book you will have on your mind for a long time after you are done reading it.  It’s about this women who was diagnosed with ALS or also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.  I am amazed by this woman’s attitude to this terminal disease, her love and support from her husband, her adventurous heart and lastly her love and understanding she has towards her children when they don’t fully understand her mother won’t be with them much longer.

The second book is Glitter and Glue by Kelly Corrigan.  This book will make you look at your mom in a new light and really make you appreciate your mom that much more.  After college the author traveled around the world and while in Australia needed to make some extra money and decided to take a nanny gig.  As she watches these kids she realizes all the things that bothered her about her mother started to understand why she did some of those things.  In fact as she continued in life, got married and had kids of her own her love for her mom grows and she realizes she adopted a lot of traits her mom did in raising her kids.  It’s an evolution of an relationship that I could really relate to.  If you want something quick and easy to read this book is for you!

You don’t need to be mom to love these books, but if you are one it will touch your heart even more.  Please let me know if you read these books, I’d love to discu
