Riding Lessons by Sara Gruen

08th February 2009

Annemarie returns to her family’s ranch with her teen daughter in tow after her husband announces that he’s leaving.  Her life is a mess, and the ranch is the once place where she can hope to find healing.  Nothing spectacular, but a decent story nonetheless.

Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay: And Other Things I Had to Learn as a New MomA sarcastic and humorous glimpse into the world of a first-time mom.  You can’t take this book seriously, as it will probably make fun of some aspect of parenting that you hold near and dear.  However, every new mom needs a good laugh, and this one made me laugh out loud.  So if you’re caught in the drudgery of being a mom, check out this book and laugh at yourself and your life.  Trust me, you’ll feel better!

I just discovered the sequel…Naptime is the New Happy Hour.  As I’m thoroughly enjoying the fact that BOTH of my kids are sleeping AT THE SAME TIME, I couldn’t agree more.

The Memory of Water Marnie returns home to the South Carolina Lowcountry to help care for her nephew after a boating accident.  Once home, she must confront her estranged sister and a whole boat full of family secrets.  A good “chick lit” book.  White does family drama without making it (too) nauseating.

Road Map to Holland: How I Found My Way Through My Son's First Two Years With Down Syndrome Shortly after the birth of their twin sons, Groneberg and her husband were told that one of their sons had down syndrome.  Road Map to Holland tells of their first two years as a family.  A book every parent should read.  Well written and honest.

A small French town is consumed by a witch hunt. Nobody is safe from the power-hungry men, who will accuse anyone who stands in their way of witchcraft. I’ve read many stories about the witch trials here in the U.S., but didn’t know that this went on in Europe as well.
