Catching up

Where or where has the time gone?!  Things have been a bit hectic here... report cards are due... new students in the class... more Behavior Management Through Adventure integration into my lesson plans... IEPs due.. progress notes... catching up on grading... and of course, trying to live it up and actually enjoy being 24 and having fun weekends!  Spent this past weekend in NYC- got to see a concert and wander around and stop in to see our friends and their 2 1/2 month old twins.  Such a fun time!  I have some videos and a few photos to post when I upload them from the camera.

I have a few reviews (3 actually!) that I need to post.  So.. lets get on to that..

The Doctor's WifeThe Doctor's Wife by Elizabeth Brundage is one of the best fiction novels I have read in a long time.  Set in Albany (upstate NY.. not far from me, as a matter of fact), this psychological thriller keeps you guessing.  The story begins with a tragic event... then the events leading up to that begin to unfold.  the novel jumps back and forth between past and present until it catches up with itself... but even then there is still a lot to learn and discover.  That is why this novel keeps the reader on her toes.  Without giving too much away, the novel is about a bored housewife, an artist / art professor, journalist / professor, and a doctor.  Their lives wrap around and around one another, before any of them realize and it is too late.  The twists and turns, the ins and outs of these four lives are so seamlessly connected.  That is how the novel is both engaging and riveting, without losing the reader in the time warp aspect of the writing.  If twists and turns sprinkled with a good dose of extra marital affairs, politics, and religion is your thing, than this book is the best read out there.  An amazing debut novel by Elizabeth Brundage!  Cheers!

2 more coming soon... Buried by Robin Merrow MacCready and Weekends at Bellevue by Julie Holland, M.D.
