I've already read some good books since Matt has been gone and I wanted to recommend a few of them to all of you:
For the military wife/girlfriend: Married to the Military by Meredith Leyva:
This is a great book that covers how the military works, gives you a lot of great resources and real life stories from military families. This details everything you need to know to manage the day to day issues and get on with the adventure of military life. From relocation to deployment, protocol to finances, and career to kids, it offers a ton of great advice! I read this once when Matt and I first started dating, and then again before we got married. It really helped me navigate the Navy and all that comes with it!
For the Mommy to be: Belly Laughs by Jenny McCarthy:
I bought this book for two reasons: it was cheaper and not as overwhelming as all the other baby books, and I read a chapter and started laughing in the bookstore. It is a very funny, honest look at pregnancy. In fact, it is so honest that by the time I finished the book I was more worried about all the strange things that might happen to me when I'm pregnant and less excited. Better to be prepared though right? It's a great comic relief from all the big stuffy pregnancy books.
For Everyone: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson:
One of my all time favorite books. I am obsessed with the series. This is the first book of 3. It "combines murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue into one satisfyingly complex and entertainingly atmospheric novel". It has a lot of details and a lot of characters but it is so interesting! I could not put it down. I found myself wanting to read it all the time. I finished it in about a week and I just started the second book (which I borrowed from the library!). Highly recommend this to everyone!
What is one of your all time favorite books? I am always looking for good books to read!
Sonny - getting his read on!
