Book: This One is Mine
Author: Maria Semple
Also by Semple: Where Did You Go, Bernadette?
I just started this gem of a book right on the heels of three dark nonfiction books, and am already welcoming the change of pace. I needed a lighter note to follow the dark descent that Jessica Savitch’s biography, Golden Girl, just took me on. Another fascinating read, but a tragic spiral that begged for a change-of-pace. Even with a heavy topic, Semple’s refreshing and humorous writing brings with it a welcome levity. I plan on diving into this over the weekend in between some work and major prep for a best girlfriend’s wedding next weekend. Enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you Monday with a brand new DIY video to help you get organized!
