A little magic and sparkle

Happy January!

I hope you are all having a lovely Monday so far! We are back on track this week with a weekly TBR! Again I have tried to make sure I am keeping to my reading schedule but still being realistic so I am only putting two books on this weeks TBR!

This weeks books are books that have been picked up in the local book boxes so are definitely books I should have read sooner.

I Don’t Know How She Does It – Allison Pearson.

Synopsis:

Delightfully smart and heartbreakingly poignant, Allison Pearson’s smash debut novel has exploded onto bestseller lists as “The national anthem for working mothers.” Hedge-fund manager, wife, and mother of two, Kate Reddy manages to juggle nine currencies in five time zones and keep in step with the Teletubbies. But when she finds herself awake at 1:37 a.m. in a panic over the need to produce a homemade pie for her daughter’s school, she has to admit her life has become unrecognizable. With panache, wisdom, and uproarious wit, I Don’t Know How She Does It brilliantly dramatizes the dilemma of every working mom.

Pre-Read thoughts:

  • I definitely think that it is going to be an easy read chick-lit
  • After reading some reviews (we all do it) I feel this is a book you would enjoy more from the prospective of someone who has children. However I love a good chick-lit so we shall still be trying this out.
  • I have found it has been turned into a film….. I shall be watching this also.

Dear Life – Alice Munro:

Synopsis:

Alice Munro captures the essence of life in her brilliant new collection of stories. Moments of change, chance encounters, the twist of fate that leads a person to a new way of thinking or being: the stories in Dear Life build to form a radiant, indelible portrait of just how dangerous and strange ordinary life can be.

Pre-Read Thoughts:

  • I feel like I will find myself getting lost within this book
  • The cover is so simple yet so gorgeous
  • I love reading about the things that have lead to people changing so I feel like I will love this.

I will be giving a run down of these books on Friday maybe even a review if I get to finish them.

What are you reading this week?

Love Always,

Gee xoxo
