I'm new to Work It, Mom! and love to read so I think I'll be spending a lot of time here. I've never heard of or read Christopher Moore. Where have I been? Sounds like I should start with Lamb?
My favorite author is Anita Shreve. If anyone wants a harrowing tale that will tug on your heart strings as a mom, but also leave you a little aroused (nice side benefit
in parts, pick up Fortune's Rocks. I read it 6 months after having my first child and couldn't stop crying for the last 50 pages. It's been 6 years, so I'm going to pull it out and read it again soon. I can't wait.
My most recent read was A Thousand Splendid Suns
which was so great. If you liked The Kite Runner you're sure to love Suns. I'm reading Eat, Pray, Love right now and enjoying it but finding it a little hard to relate to as the author seems very spoiled. She has a mid-30's life crisis and decides to travel to 3 exotic locations to find herself. Oh that we could all be so lucky. Interesting journey though, both physically and spiritually. Worth the read.
