2. I have a LOT of new songs that I’m in love with. I kind of ignored anything but holiday music until after Christmas, so many of these might be “old” but new to me!
3. For our Chicago Blogger Book Club, we’re reading Heart Sick by Chelsea Cain. If you read and review the book by January 20th, email me the link at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the link to your review at the end of my post!
4. Coconut Oil is AWESOME! I’ve been cooking my eggs in it every morning and it makes them soooo much better! (I’ve also been doing an egg scramble instead of my regular, with either olives or avocado, salt & pepper).
5. I FINALLY picked up the book club book of the month for PB Fingers Book Club and managed to read it pretty quickly! It was somewhat long, but it totally flew by! This month’s book is called What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty.
What Alice Forgot is a fictional novel about a woman named Alice, living in Sydney, Australia, who wakes up on the floor of a Spin class with no idea how she got there and who the people around her are. She’s rushed to the hospital where she realizes that it’s 2008. Her last memory is being pregnant, married and in the year 1998.
The novel follows her as she’s reintroduced to her new life, which is starkly different from the one she left. She confused as to why so many of her old relationships had fallen apart, who these three beautiful children are, who her new friends are, and how in the world she became so skinny (she never would have step foot in a gym in 1998, mind you).
I found the book very interesting and really kept my attention the whole time. I managed to finish it in two days, but that wasn’t hard since I could barely put it down! The author really keeps you guessing about several things throughout the book, like how the relationship between Alice and her husband will end up and who in the world is this “Gina” everyone keeps whispering about!
It definitely didn’t end exactly how I expected, but I liked that. I thought the ending was very realistic and happy, and I felt content when it finished. I definitely recommend What Alice Forgot if you’re looking for a new and interesting read, but nothing too intense!
What’s something you’re loving lately?
Do you cook with coconut oil?
