On My Bookshelf [What Alice Forgot]

Well, although today it's back to work, Spring Break was delightful.  It was productive (both working at tennis and doing a little spring cleaning) and relaxing.  I made a concerted effort to set some time aside each day to do a little reading.  I was even able to do so while sitting in the sunshine on the back porch.  Heaven.

I chose What Alice Forgot, by Liane Moriarty not only because the premise was entirely intriguing, but because I've also enjoyed her other books.  (Read those reviews here and here.)  I was hooked from the beginning, and although parts were somewhat slow, it was interesting to see how the characters lives had changed.  It was a quick, good read that I do recommend.

What Alice Forgot

Amazon says:
Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child.

So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! She HATES the gym) and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over — she’s getting divorced, she has three kids, and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes. Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over…

So, what's on your bookshelf?  I'd love to hear about what you're reading!

Happy Reading!
