Whether it’s inside on a rainy day or outside when the sun is shining, why don’t you pick up a good book? Here’s what I’ve been reading this spring. Have you read any of these? What have you been reading lately?
Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
Soon to be released as a motion picture, this comedy novel is a fun read. It tells the story of architect, wife, mother, and a bit of a hot mess, Bernadette. When life gets crazy, Bernadette goes missing. Did she go crazy as well? The format of the book is really fun, made up of emails, police reports, texts, and narrative. Read it before the movie comes out!
