Bossypants by Tina Fey

Ever since my good friend lent me Sarah's Key. I've been craving good books. Sometimes thats what it takes. I went to the library this week and picked up several books, one of which was Bossypants* by Tina Fey.

 Bossypants [Book]

Bossypants was a funny look at life from the hilarious Tina Fey. Fey conveys what life is really like as a celebrity as well life on set. Her stories encompass her childhood, young adult life, and life as a working mom. My favorite quote: "Always wear a bra, you'll never regret it."

Pop Rocks has to go to sleep earlier than me because he has to be a work earlier than me (logical, right?). Well I've been reading this book in the bed while he is sleeping. Sometimes I would laugh so hard it would wake him up. I like being near him so I stayed in the bed and tried to move past those hilarious parts, but there was always another one around the corner.

While I don't fully relate to everything that Fey discusses in her book, since I have yet to accomplish some of the things she has, her writing was so poignant that I was able to relate. My favorite parts were her discussion of her honeymoon and about life after college working at the YMCA front desk. The other great part is when she discusses being Sarah Palin on SNL.

If you are looking for a fun and very funny read pick this book up! Just try not to read it in bed while your spouse is sleeping you may just wake them up!

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Falling For You by Becky Wade

I don't think I have read a Becky Wade book that I haven't liked. Her newest release, Falling For You, followed that trend.

In this sequel to True To You which I reviewed last year, Willow Bradford must face her past when her ex-boyfriend shows back up in her life. Corbin Stewart is cajoled to recruit Willow as an investigator into a family mystery by his almost-niece, Charlotte. The three of them team up to figure out what happened in Charlotte's family.

Willow and Corbin are a study in opposites. Willow is a rule-following people-pleaser. Corbin is used to charming his way into getting what he wants with no care for the rules. The sparks between the two are hot, but their past still haunts them.

I loved this book. The characters were charming and endearing. I love that this series continues from book to book, though each can be read alone. It was fun to read as the characters grew and changed in their relationships to God, others and themselves. 

I definitely recommend this …

Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb

My latest BookSneeze selection is the book Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb. The story is Mrs. Grubb’s memoir of her life growing up with an abusive father. This was a hard book to read. I’ve always had a very tender spot in my heart for children that have to endure abuse. I never had to and am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for his grace in my life. Mrs. Grubb’s story was shocking, appalling and full of hope.

Her journey led her all over the country and down many dark paths. There were times of light in her life though that made all the difference to her story. Most interesting to me was how she overcame what could have made her a hard person and was still a seemingly kind and loving woman.

My heart broke over and over again as I read her story. There were times that it seemed she had escaped only to be trapped again. It was amazing to read about her tenacity and endurance for something that would have likely killed if not the body, the soul of most people. My life e…
