What Alice Forgot

My 5th book of the year was What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty. It came highly recommended by Rachel and it definitely did not disappoint! It took me awhile to get to it because now it seems I am always reading a book for my book club. (Which is good because I have been loving the books we read for book club and I end up discovering books I probably wouldn't have read otherwise, but also bad because I don't get a chance to read books of my own choosing.) 

We ended up not having book club in May, so I jumped at the opportunity to read it. I finished while we were at Disneyland and loved nearly every minute of it. I only say nearly because for a few minutes there I thought it wasn't going to end how I wanted - but then it did end like I was hoping and all was forgiven! (I hope that doesn't give anything away to those who haven't read it yet!)

Alice bumps her head and wakes up thinking she is pregnant with her first child when in reality it is 10 years later and she has 3 children! Such a crazy (and sad) idea to think of losing 10 years worth of memories (makes me glad I blog like I do!).

Read it, you won't be sorry!

So glad you liked it! I think it may be my favorite book of the year.

I am continually amazed that anyone has time to read books - especially young mothers :)

You never cease to amaze me daughter dear!
