I thought it was time I gave another one of my raving book reviews. I know you all wait on pins and needles to know my opinion on the books I read. . . it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.
First up, Tina Fey’s Bossypants. When I first heard about Tina writing this book, I knew I wanted to read it. Over the years I’ve enjoyed watching Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live, the movie Date Night, and the occasional 30 Rock episode. But, I didn’t rush out to my closest Barnes and Noble, I actually kind of forgot about it.About two weeks ago, I had some time to kill before my very first facial EVER, and decided to spend some quality time at my favorite book store.
As I was meandering the aisles, waiting for something to jump out at me, I came across the book BossyPants and instantly remembered that I wanted to read it. I picked it up and added it to my growing mound of books.
Let’s just say that I typically don’t laugh out loud when reading books. I actually display very little emotion when reading a book even if Lassy does die in the end. I know, I’m cold, what can I say?
Anyways. . . I laughed out loud when reading this book. I even shared several excerpts with Jon and he laughed as well. There is something about the way she writes her stories that your not quite sure if it’s true or if she’s being sarcastic. She discusses her start in theater and improv acting, her spoof on SNL as Sarah Palin, and her tv show 30 Rock. She also shares what it’s like to be a working mom. I loved the humor in it. I will warn you, however, there is some language, so beware if you decide to read the book, but be prepared to laugh.
The second book I bought that day was Nicholas Sparks’ The Best of Me. I always say to myself, I’m not going to buy another Nicholas Sparks book, but I always end up doing it anyways. To me, his books are a little predictable, but I always find myself enjoying them, even if I know the ending.
This particular book was just a little cheesy for me, at least the ending was. I know that sounds mean, but its the truth. In all the other Nicholas Sparks books that I’ve read, only one ending did I not see coming and that was The Lucky One, which by the way, is now a movie. I’m really looking forward to seeing this one in the spring! You can watch a preview here. I mean, you pretty much know how its going to end, but you don’t know how it all comes together like it does.
But I digress.
Anyways. I always enjoy a good chick-flick book every now and then. My taste in books is mostly the spy, espionage, mystery, historical-fiction type. It’s nice to throw a girlie book in there every now and then.
I’ve just started George Bush’s book, Decision Points and it already looks like it will be good. Don’t worry, I’ll be back here, giving you my opinion of the book once I finish reading all 481 pages.
