A book recommendation from Reese Witherspoon's book club. Cute read on a cold snowy day

I started this book during lunch today... It is fascinating and I'm having trouble putting it down.. I'd recommend it and I've only read 50 pages so far.

Whether you are pro life or pro choice this book is riveting. Must read!

"Perhaps in those honest conversations, instead of demonizing each other, we might see each other as imperfect humans, doing our best."

After Anna | Lisa Scottoline
post image
Pickpick

Not sure if I agree with how the book ended so quickly but it's a fast read. You'll want to keep flipping the pages to see who killed Anna. And I read all Lisa Scottoline since her books are usually Philly based 😊

Must read. Eleanor thinks everyone is socially awkward when it's really her. Her honesty is hilarious. I can't wait for the movie.

When Life Gives You Lululemons | Lauren Weisberger

My train book for the week... other passengers must think I'm nuts, I've chuckled way too many times to only be 38 pages deep.

".. I was imitating that buffoon who worked in the office- what was his name? Something rapey. Chester. Yes, Chester! Have you ever looked him up? We should Google him. I bet he has more pedophilia arrests than we can count.."

Clwojick Ugh! I have to red this soon! I have it, but haven‘t had a chance to get to it yet. 1y
kristafred I just finished it! It was a riot 😂 I hope you enjoy it when you get time 1y

Rainy day reads... and football...

(I just started the second half of the book... I'm pulling for Reese and Caleb even though they come from such different upbringings. Jonah is such a strong little boy, I'm not sure how I could cope if I was in his shoes..)

How to Walk Away | Katherine Center

Great book! Absolutely fantastic!

"I would never tell you that the life you wanted couldn't have been exactly as great as you planned. But you have to live the life you have. You have to find inspiration in the struggle & pull the joy out of the hardship.... more than anything, I know that you just have to choose to make the best of things. You get one life & it only goes forward. & there really are all kinds of happy endings"

A Man Called Ove: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

I need an Ove in my life ? Such a great read! I found myself always smirking at his mannerisms despite his cranky old ways. He showed his love towards people differently and he truly loved his wife. The "granddad" part got to me the most. I hope my work book club eventually picks this book to read ?

Captivatedbybooks Now i gotta read it 2y
kristafred Yes you do! You'll love it, especially because of your fondness to your furry ones 2y

When my friend @Captivatedbybooks told me about the premise of this book, I made a strange face and was like "eww, whattt, nooo!" But after reading it, I really was rooting for Wavy and Kellen. I felt like I was on a roller coaster of emotions!

Captivatedbybooks I told you!!!!! I seriously gave it 5 🌟 2y

VanessaDarlean I literally just finished it 5 minutes ago. I asked my husband AND my therapist was I wrong for rooting for them? I need them to have a happily ever after. I had 70 pages to go and stopped cause I was scared for the ending. 2y
kristafred What did they say?! @VanessaDarlean 2y
VanessaDarlean @kristafred My therapist had alot of question on why I shouldn't root for them, knowing the whole story and their motives. I really didn't have an answer other than their age difference. My husband felt similarly. My therapist asked me, she's like do you think everyone on the sex offender registry is true offender? And I know some people on that list don't deserve to be. 2y
VanessaDarlean @kristafred she was shocked I would read something like this given my backgroud. I was shocked too but I don't regret it. 2y
VanessaDarlean @kristafred Like, I feel like I shouldn't be rooting for them or should I love this book because everything in society tells me this is wrong and there is no way around it. It definitely challenged me in ways I wasn't expecting. 2y
