I like to read. I have more time now to read. I try to read a book a week. It doesn’t always work that way as some books are too long, too boring, or some use really big words and I have to read those slowly to let the words digest in my brain so I can understand what is written. Anyway. I have decided that Tuesday would be a good day to talk about what book I have read in the past week or so. I was doing this previously but I have been a bit slack. Ok, by slack I mean lazy.
Here’s a book I read a while ago. I figure I won’t actually read a book every week, so I will catch up eventually.
This book is so sad. It’s based on a true story about the author’s 2 year old daughter (I think she was 2, like I said, it was a while ago!) falling victim to cancer. Oh so sad. I cried on the train while reading it! I don’t know how many times I had to stop reading it so I wouldn’t cry. But you know, I was annoyed a little by this book. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed it, but seriously, the 2 year old was talking in full sentences, so I am not sure if the child was a genius or if the author had a slightly skewed recollection of events. All that aside. Read it. It is beautiful and poignant. I really liked it and it breaks my heart to think that families have to go through these types of things.
I feel like I should have something happy to follow that with. I don’t. Sorry about that.
