MONTHS later

Blogging has REALLY fallen off my radar lately. I just haven't had the time or the desire to do it lately. Plus, I haven't been reading near as much as normal. I've just been busy and I think I just fell into a bit of a rut. The last few books I've read haven't entertained me too much, and then I just kind of lost interest.
I recently just picked up The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena and it has ignited in me the desire to actually seek out books and read again. Seems like a bunch of duds put me in a reading slump. I'm about halfway through The Couple Next Door and I am really enjoying it. I have a few others, like The Woman in Cabin 10 and Dark Matter on hold at NYPL and am excited to get those to read. I've heard really good things there.

In other news, I signed up in September to be a Jamberry Independent Consultant! I am now selling Jamberry and I absolutely LOVE it. I will probably start sprinkling in some nail stuff on here too. Below are a few of my recent Jamicures!

The Theft of Memory

The Theft of Memory: Losing My Father, One Day at a Time
By Jonathan Kozol

I love memoirs and biographies, so I thought this would be a book I would find interesting. I'm always very interested in the brain and how it functions, so it fit well with that as well.
I have to admit that it took me a long time to get this read. I put it down multiple times just because it didn't hold my attention. However, I did complete the book- which is not something I always do with books that I am struggling to focus on.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. I thought it was an interesting story and I really liked the way that the author wove in personal and professional tidbits from his fathers life.I would certainly recommend this book to those who like memoirs or biographies, as well as to those who are interested in studying the brain or Alzheimers more specifically.
