a tale of two memoirs.

hello hello. i hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. i was a little under the weather but had a great time meeting the Beekman boys on saturday and cleaning my entire apartment on sunday. i'll share photos tomorrow (of meeting the boys, not of cleaning ;)

also this weekend i picked up copies of both Two Kisses for Maddy by Matt Logelin and Bossypants by Tina Fey. two very different memoirs but i figured i'd need something light and funny to get through the other.

i found Matt Logelin's blog soon after he started it and feel a little creepy about how long i've been following it. (you should check it out here) he used it as an outlet to write about life after his daughter was born and his wife tragically passed away the next day. as someone who's experienced loss of my own, i was immediately drawn to his honesty and dry sense of humor; and yes, i cried quite a bit. but what he wrote and continues to write just makes sense. his book is wonderful and i would highly recommend it. at its heart it's a terrific love story and great reminder to always be grateful for who's in your life and what you have every day.

and what can i say about Tina Fey that hasn't been said? she's smart, funny, successful and hilarious and i want to be her (i'm not kidding that i dreamed as i child that i would one day be a comedic actress - what the heck was i thinking?). her book (which i will admit, i haven't quite finished yet), makes you feel like she's your personal friend and is regaling you with hilarious anecdotes over drinks. it's a perfect light, funny, summer read.

what have you been reading recently?

  1. Your book choices are awesome.

    I always shy away from stories of loss because I hate feeling sad even if it's for someone else but I am gonna hop on over to his website now to see it through new eyes. :)
