What I Just Read
So I just finished reading I Don't Know How She Does It by Allison Pearson, which happens to be the basis of the new Sarah Jessica Parker movie of the same name. I picked up the book thinking I'd like to know the story in case I ever, 10 years in the future or so, get to watch the movie. I am a person who likes to read the book first and then see the movie. I'd rather be disappointed that the movie didn't live up to the book than the other way around. Case in point- I also picked up Bridget Jones's Diary on the same library trip, and couldn't get into it, possibly because I kept hearing Renee Zellweger's voice talking along with me.
Anyway, this was a fun book, about Kate Reddy who is a super-woman working mom who wants to have it all but knows she doesn't and the struggles she goes through to balance everything. My one disappointment- I was excited for the New York City storyline, as I've loved books that take place in the city and that's the movie setting, but the book actually takes place in London, so the almost immediate mention of mince pies threw me off a minute. If you are a mom, a working mom, a stay-at-home mom, want to be a mom, never want kids, this is a good read because it covers all the angles, and I think it would be pretty enjoyable to most everyone.
On another note, I'm happy to report that the bunting cards I previewed yesterday are listed, as well as some bunting bookmarks, which I thought were a fun companion. It's nice to have some inspiration for some new work!
They can all be found here in my shop. Have a great day everyone!
