This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

4 Blondes


The latest book I've read is called "4 Blondes".
While it was a readable book, I can't say it was a very good book. The book is actually 4 separate stories, each about, you guessed it, a blonde.
My biggest peeve about the book was that each story would go on without anything really happening and then suddenly it will end. The other annoyance in this book was all the initials and drop off sentences. This occurred mostly in the characters conversations where the sentence would drop off followed by something like "..." naming that famous actor. It irked me. If the author did not want to name actual famous people, then why not make up characters that are famous in the story? The author did this too for some famous locations or magazines as well.
As I said earlier, this book was "readable". By that I mean I was able to get through the book but I certainly wouldn't put this on any MUST READ lists. Perhaps I should say this book is actually forgettable, not readable!
The author is famous for her book "Sex and The City" but after reading "4 Blondes", I'm not too sure I want to read any books written by the author. I think "Sex and The City" will just have to forever be a television show in my mind.

It sounds like a book to avoid. I need to read more. I love to read but I just don't make the time for it. Or maybe it's because I have to pay off a huge fine on my library card before I can go back.
