Just Finished Reading…

I decided to start a book review linky…there are two great ones that I join up with (see buttons below).  I hope you’ll link up your posts about book reviews below.

Now onto what I have finished reading… 



Goodreads Summary: Vanishing Acts

Delia Hopkins has led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her widowed father, Andrew, she now has a young daughter, a handsome fiance, and her own search-and-rescue bloodhound, which she uses to find missing persons. But as Delia plans her wedding, she is plagued by flashbacks of a life she can’t recall. And then a policeman knocks on her door, revealing a secret that changes the world as she knows it.” In shock and confusion, Delia must sift through the truth – even when it jeopardizes her life and the lives of those she loves. What happens when you learn you are not who you thought you were? When the people you’ve loved and trusted suddenly change before your eyes? When getting your deepest wish means giving up what you’ve always taken for granted? Vanishing Acts explores how life – as we know it – might not turn out the way we imagined; how doing the right thing could mean doing the wrong thing; how the memory we thought had vanished could return as a threat.


You know when you read a Jodi Picoult book, you are not going to get a warm and fuzzy happy ending, you are reading real life. You are reading what could happen to any of us or someone we know.

I totally sympathize with Andrew…he did what he had to for his daughter and I would have done the same for my son.
At first I felt bad for Elise, but then I was sick of her. She knew…or had an idea and just didn’t care or want to know.

Poor Eric, he grew up in what could have been Delia’s life…so sad. I don’t blame Delia for making him defend her dad, he was one stress away from drinking again. If Fitz wasn’t a better friend he could have been with Delia all along.



Goodreads Summary: From Inside the Brain of a Dad Looking Out

From Inside the Brain of a Dad Looking Out is an offbeat, humorous look at life through the eyes of an imperfect husband and father. 
This collections of short stories range from the honest thoughts on parenting that go through a dad’s mind, to ridiculously funny situations one could only hope would never happen to a parent or spouse.


I WON this book from Courtney

at The Brown Girl with Long Hair. I entered the giveaway and WON a book! The best part is that it’s signed by the author. How cool is that!!!!

I am so excited to start reading it. From Courtney’s review and just reading about it on Goodreads I know I’m in for a read with lots of laughter and understanding nods. Maybe I can get my hubby to read it as well.

  1. No book review to linkup this week, but finally reading Summer Sisters and will share once I am done hopefully in the next few weeks. By the way, totally agree about Jodi Picoult and contrast on winning, too!! 🙂

  2. You’re in for a treat, Karen! I’m so glad you won the giveaway, as I know you will give any book a deserving home. lol

    Thank you so very much for the shout-out, too!

    Total non sequitur here, but I LOVE your blog header. (I know I have only told you that 1,000 times. And I just noticed that my son Scotty has the same exact yellow CAT steamroller-thingy that’s in the bottom right of the pic above…)


    • I think I told you I was going to change it recently, but now I’m going to leave it up for a big longer…I am already laughing and crying with his book…wow…just when I think this is the best chapter, I start to read the next one and change my mind, LOL

Would love to read your thoughts
