This Week

This past week has been interesting to say the least. Its been chockfull of everything and everyone in my life. I've had a work event, a night with friends, and one of my best friends moved. Y'all - MY. BEST. FRIEND. MOVED!!!!

Like I've mentioned before, I have amazing friends. But it hasn't always been that way. See when I was four years old we moved for the first time. My best friend before then moved too. Our friendship was over either way. I made amazing friends and they are to this day what I miss most. I keep up with some via facebook. We moved again when I was twelve. I didn't make the same kind of friends. I made some, but I only keep up with a few of them.

When I moved away to college I took a friend with me and she is amazing. Sadly, she got married and moved after college. We talk on the phone and when we do we talk for hours. I love her dearly and love that we get together as often as we can. Our friendship is definitely one of the best things in my life.

Since she moved I had a hard time meeting friends. I have amazing friends from work - we even hang out outside of the office. Then we started making couple friends. It was great. They are great. They saved me from feeling like a loser:)

Two years ago, one of my other best friends moved back to town. She fit right in with my new friends and life was great. But this weke she moved. My world has been rocked. To be honest, I'm still in denial. I'm trying not to fall apart. I'm trying to figure out how to handle this big change. I know that I need to rely on my other friends. Pop Rocks is such a huge inspiration and rock for me. He gets that this is really hard for me. So if you see me for a little while and I seem sad, its cause I am, but I'll be just fine. That is with a little help from my friends.

Love you!

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…

Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan

Libby's entire life was turned on its head in a matter of hours one cold Chicago day. How she reacts will redefine how she lives and will change the rest of her life.

I sincerely loved this book. I was hooked from the first paragraph. Despite what could be considered an outrageous plot, I found it believable and relatable. I definitely recommend it though, there are some things that could be considered triggers for some readers so avoid it if you are sensitive about cancer, losing a parent or divorce. 

Pagán's writing was refreshing and real. I think what I loved most was the epilogue that actually wrapped up the story, without putting it in a box with a bow on it.

Since I didn't receive a free copy of this book I am linking to it here for you to purchase on Amazon. This is an affiliate link, which means that I will get a small part of the profits: Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan.

Mary Poser by Angel A.

I just finished the book Mary Poser: Butterflies and White Lies as Bollywood Comes to Nashville. In this book, dutiful pastor's daughter Mary meets Bollywood producer, Simha Das at the Nashville Film Festival and the many different events that follow send Mary on a roller coaster of emotions. When her ex finds out about Simha he appears back in Mary's life wanting to make amends. Her critical mother has to have opinions about everything in her family's life. Her brother, sister and father are all restless with their lives that have been lived in the same city. Her best friend from childhood is devious and manipulative. Plus, there are lots of other characters with their own set of problems.

What will the result be? Will Mary completely change or will she stay in the life that she has always known? 

I would tell you to read it to find out, but don't, seriously don't. 

This was by far the worst book I have read in a while. The events in Mary's life are described in …
