Since I started working again, I haven't had as much time to read. I try to, but the end result is never success. For instance, I bought a new book 2 weeks ago, and I've yet to make it past the first chapter. Two months ago, it would've been challenging for me to not finish a book in a week. If you're better at balancing work and reading (that sounds pathetic) than I am, do yourself a favor, and read How to Love an American Man by Kristine Gasbarre. In a word: amazing. And just in case you were curious, it's a memoir, not an instruction manual.
I found it to be incredibly easy to relate to, as I think most women in their twenties and thirties would. Gasbarre, who has been living in NYC and Italy for a short time, moves back home to Pennsylvania after her grandfather passes away. She learns priceless lessons in love from her newly-widowed grandmother, and she shares her story of putting them to use in this book. I won't say anymore so that I don't give anything away, but it's a truly heartwarming and inspiring story. And the best part is, she's working on book number two!! You can order a copy of the book here.
Have you read this book? If so, did you love it as much as I did? If not, what's a good book you've read recently?
