Read any good books lately?
I'm seeking out a book recommendation. Any suggestions? I would like something just for fun and easy to read, preferably fiction (but if you had your mind blown by something that's fun to read and nonfiction, by all means) but I still want it to have depth and intrique.
Honestly, I have a list of "to read" books 20 miles long and a stack of unread books at home. And I've read a lot of books in the last year. But I have to get excited about a book to want to start it and at the moment I'm just not really excited about anything. Maybe an enthusiastic recommendation would do the trick? Usually when I hear about something and it peaks my interest, I run out and buy it. At the moment, even wandering through a book store I'm not feeling inspired to pick anything up. I must be in a dry spell.
Also, as I am getting closer to motherhood I'm wondering if I should be reading things to prepare. Yes, I realize no one is ever really prepared for parenthood. But there's probably a lot of things about taking care of an infant that I could stand to learn about. And there must be books out there that help future moms get ready mentally and emotionally, right? Any of my pregnant or new mom friends out there have suggestions? Did you read anything? Do you wish you had? Poetry, fiction, pregnancy...anything?
So there's my plea. Recommendations anyone?
