4. Always have to have a blanket on me, no matter how hot it is.

Our area (master planned community) has two libraries, but we only go to one because it‘s down the street from our house. I met up with a friend and her little boy today at the other library because her son loves it. Holy Moly...the kids area is so fabulous! The play area lets the kids explore and create, plus find so many fabulous books! We played 3 hours and checked out a large stack of 📚. The only thing missing is a ☕️bar for the parents! 🤪

Very eye-opening!! What you‘ve been told about weight loss and obesity is complete BS. Read this if you want to learn the truth about why we really fight our weight.

1. Many years ago, at a job where I worked with all women, we all started reading books written by Graham Masterton (when he wrote about sex and relationships) and other similar authors.
2. Yes, read many.
3. Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus by John Grey. Yes, it helped me understand the differences with the way men and women approach relationships.
4. 2 years? Dealing with new babies.

Enjoyed this story about an older woman‘s decision to leave her husband of 40+ years. The author writes in a way that draws you in and let‘s you feel you‘re there watching as the story unfolds. I‘m curious about how the movie turns out.

Mehso-so

I‘m gonna have to give this a “so-so” rating. It was a nice story but it didn‘t wow me or leave me wanting more. The middle got a little boring but I stuck with it hoping for that heart pounding ending. I think it was a nice ending but not that exciting. Not saying don‘t read it but just don‘t expect an exciting read.

C.Perone I started this a while ago and didn't get very far. I was just so damned confused with what was going on that I quickly moved on to another book. I think I was expecting another 5mo
Maggie_Reads I haven‘t read her first book. But I do think there‘s some moments in the books that‘s lost in translation as I understand the book was translated from German. (edited) 5mo

This has been on my TBR list since I first saw it in the bookstore many years ago, but I never bought it. I found it in the library a while back and intended to check it out eventually but I found out today that the movie starring Glen Close is coming out so I snagged it and I making it my next book to read.

An enjoyable story. Ava and Jace are likable characters that find and fall in love with each other, and while finding out they have more in common than they initially thought.
