Monday June 20th

It's time for Monday's Meme with Smiling Sally ~ Blue Monday.
Here is my hubby on Father's Day with my son Matthew and daughter Stephanie and her
baby Lily..I wish it was a little lighter. Anyway the cake has blue icing and I got it from Dairy Queen. It was delicious. On a not so good note I found out after an MRI this past Saturday that I have two bulging discs in my lower back and spinal stenosis. Still have to talk to my doctor to find out what all this means to me but not feeling very great the last week or so..

It's Monday and time to share what we are reading with Sheila's Monday Meme at
Book Journey - It's Monday what are you reading? This is a great way to meet new book bloggers and add to your
list of to be read titles.
I have not been feeling great so have not been getting a lot of reading in but have
been listening to Lisa Scottolines new book, Save me.
Here is a little about it.

From Booklist
Suburban mom [Rose McKenna] is forced to make a split-second decision after an explosion goes off in the school cafeteria in which she volunteers. Should she rescue her own daughter, Melly, trapped in the bathroom, or lead the girls standing in front of her, who constantly bully her daughter, to safety? Her choice reverberates throughout the little town of Reesburgh, Pennsylvania, as she is cast as the villain by the local news anchor, parents, and the school. While her attorney and husband construct a defense plan that includes filing a lawsuit against the school, [Rose] sets out to seek the truth behind this mysterious, accidental fire. With the help of a construction worker who may know the cause of the explosion as well as an incognito visit to a local factory, [Rose] slowly unravels the truth and along with it some hidden secrets in Reesburgh's dark past, including one horrifying buried memory of her own. At the quick pace of a thriller, Scottoline masterfully fits every detail into a tight plot chock-full of real characters, real issues, and real thrills. A story anchored by the impenetrable power of a mother's love, it begs the question, just how far would you go to save your child? --Annie McCormick --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I just finished these two,
Certain Girls by Jennifer Weiner 3 Stars out of 5
Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert 3 Stars out of 5
I really didn't know what the big wow was about Eat Pray Love but then again it could have been the mood I was in at the time I was reading it.
Hope you enjoy your reads this week!
