Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler 

Vinegar Girl is up next in my queue.  I’ve got to finish reading it by October 25, 2017 in order to participate in Schaefer Sippers Book Club.  I’m having trouble getting started despite this being a modern spin of Taming of the Shrew.  I mean c’mon.  How cool is that? Answer muy frio 😎.  It’s supposed to read like a fluffy beach read too.  So I’ve really got no excuse.  

Better Days

Maudlin searches for memories

Of times before

Before what

Before sorrow sang me to sleep

Encased in all my dreams

The hope for better days

A world seemingly unreal

Emotions too deep to feel

Numb, falling, spinning

Spiraling down the rabbit hole



JDubs Review of Hourglass Time, Memory, Marriage by Dani Shapiro 

One woman’s story of married life with universal themes.  Shows how from outward appearances things can look one way all the while underneath the world is spinning out of control.  Also shows how we change as we grow older and things that once seemed very important do not always remain.  My current commonplace book has 6 more pages.  However I won’t spoil it for anyone.  You’ll have to read it for yourself.  Recommended.  Rated 4.5 of 5 stars ✨
