So I finished this book last night and all morning I've been preoccupied thinking about it and processing it. Have you read it? There's so much to say- and it's hard because I don't want to say too much, but I also feel like I have a lot of thoughts about it. The biggest thing is how much I enjoyed reading it. And not in a "oh this is such a fun book!" kind of way but in an up and down, all around, every emotion kind of way. I related so much to so many parts of this book. I cried numerous times. I felt elated and then really really sad. It was almost like reading someone's diary- but while the author's struggles may not be my own personal struggles, there were so many bits that had me nodding my head saying "me too" on one level or another. I think anyone would be able to find even some part of her story relatable. It was a gripping book- the author is VERY vulnerable throughout, and it inspired me in so many different ways to be more raw and real...and to speak my own truth. One word of caution though, towards the end of the book God becomes a big part of the story. I didn't mind one bit, but I know that some people may be turned off. For me though it was just part of the bigger picture and I thought it was just beautiful. And yes, that was a very vague book review, but that's how I like them. I hate knowing too much. So I'm just gonna say- go read it!
If you have HBO, you have to watch the sneak preview of the Divorce premiere that they just released. It's a new series starring Sarah Jessica Parker, and I think show will definitely be a big hit. I loved it. I thought SJP's acting was spot on, and the story (all about you guessed it, divorce!) is great. I also thought it was so interesting how my perception of her character shifted a few times just in this first episode. I hadn't seen the trailer beforehand- I just logged into HBO Go to watch Six Feet Under (my new obsession, so good!) and this was at the top. I watched the trailer after, and I actually would recommend seeing the first episode and THEN seeing the trailer like I did! Have you seen this yet? What did you think?
I'm in such a music rut right now. This happens every so often and it usually precedes a great new musical discovery or just going back to old favorites. Right now I've had the Spotify 90s playlist on a big loop while I'm doing cardio, but I'm over it. I need new music! I can remember the summer my friend showed me The Gaslight Anthem- it was such a fun time of musical new-ness, I basically devoured all of their albums over the course of those few months. I want to find something to fall in love with like that again! So rather than share something here, I'm asking for your suggestions! What is your current must-listen music right now? I love every genre, from country to classical, so I am all ears!
