Let me take a moment and say, gosh... I haven't taken the time to write in awhile. Shame on me.
So-- for those of you who don't know... my parents have sold our house and are moving to the beautiful area known as San Clemente. It's been a little emotional around here, not to mention crazy hectic and out of control. It all happened real quick. The best part is that God was so evident in everything that has happened which gives us all a TON of peace about this move. We won't be officially down there until almost the end of July, so we've got time to move in sections. :) My section will be down there ASAP, if you know what I mean. Hey, I gotta enjoy it while I can before I move across country. (If you didn't know that I'm moving-- call me, we need to catch up!)
As far as books go, in case you've missed my random book insights.... I've read some good ones:
True Believer by Nick Sparks-- his newest. Very very good-- his typical romance with a twist. If you need a good summer easy read, I highly recommend it! :)
Witness for the Prosecution of Scott Peterson by Amber Frey-- I saw her interview on Oprah and I was curious. So I got the book. It was VERY interesting, even knowing the story from her interview, reading the actual transcripts was enlightening. He (SP) is a sick sick sick man.
Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy-- another loan from Shannon Charles. If you enjoy British literature and are in the need for it.... I recommend this one. For those of you who don't know, this was Hardy's last novel. He got so much criticism for it, he refused to write another novel. There are some interesting themes and scenes throughout the novel AND some intriguing characters. It's a little lengthy at times, but it's worth the read.
I've read some other books, but nothing fantastic or worth mentioning at this juncture.
I'm currently reading 3 other really great books... so watch out for another update.
