I am glad to have been back reading lately, and my heart's joy has been rushing home after swim practice, taking a shower and curling up to a good book. Make no mistake about it: I am reading chick lit lately, which was triggered by a quote I chanced upon in one of my favorite blogs.
It was one of the nicest reads I've had of late in the chick lit department. Sure, I've been reading Junot Diaz, Philip Zimbardo's The Lucifer Effect and some Neruda in between and some business books but I can't deny that warm fuzzy I get from reading chick lit. Especially good chick lit like this one. I wouldn't spoil it for you but let's just say this one kept me all night, laughing and crying subsequently like a crazy woman. I wonder if the Tara in the other universe is a housewife with two kids, married to the man I think I should've, could've, would've married and online shops any time she gets. I wonder if she gets to travel at all, or if her life is any happier than what this universe has given me. I wonder if she grew up in Raymond, as would've been the biggest fork in the road I didn't take in this universe. Does she listen more to country music than hip hop and indie alternative and Spice Girls?
The truth is, reading Maybe in Another Life sprung me to read more of Taylor's work, and some stuff within the same genre, which is Your Perfect Life. I've been enjoying these titles, and if you're looking to read new ones, those come highly recommended.
In other non chick lit news, I've been cooking! And most days, they're edible and quite yummy, too. :) The truth is, it takes so much more effort and sometimes, money, to make all these meals but practicing is priceless, yes?
Happy Sunday, my darlings!
