Book Talk

"Book Talk" is one of my favorite things to do.
Any time.
I've discussed books while my daughter was having adenoid surgery.
I've discussed books with strangers on a plane/in airports.
I've discussed books with every teacher I've met. 
Love them.

Today I am linking up with Narci on her Grace and Love blog and sharing my pick for a good read! 

I have struggled lately to find a book that keeps my attention long enough to finish it. This has never been a problem for me...ever! Maybe it's the to-do list in the back of my brain but it's been a genuine challenge! That's why I was SO happy to finish this book last night! To prove to myself there are books out there that I still love to read!

You may have read or heard of the book (now movie) Still Alice. Having read that book and really connecting with it, I was excited to see that Genova had another book out called Inside the O'Briens. This book follows a family who is coping with a Huntington's Disease diagnosis. Just as Still Alice follows the thoughts and feelings of various family members dealing with Alzheimer's, this book follows this family through Huntington's. 

Is it an easy-breezy beach read? No. But it was well worth the time spent reading it and I had a desire to get to the end to see what happened. A first for me for a while! 

If you read it, I would love to know what you think of the book overall! Feel free to leave a comment. I still love reading them, even if I am struggling with the perfect book! :) 

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time, 


  1. I just read this one as well. I should have known that the ending wouldn't have a nice bow on it, but it definitely left me wanting a little more. It looks like Lisa Genova has a couple of other books out - I am definitely adding them to my list!

  2. Looking forward to reading Still Poppy has Alzheimer's and it is so interesting (and heartbreaking) to see a fictional representation of what he is going through. Thanks for your recommendations!
