I'm on vacation with the fam--Mom, Dad, and sis--which means we're all sharing a pret-ty small space at the beach. But one of the escapes is this amazing swing bed on the porch. My sister took this picture through a window (so, really, there's no escape, but this time I didn't mind).
As you can see, I was reading E. Lockhart's We Were Liars--quickly, because it's soooo compelling. It's kind of the perfect book to read on a family vacation, even when your digs aren't quite as resplendent as the Sinclairs'. For me, this book wasn't about "the twist"--I loved it but didn't read it as a twist. Without worrying about that, it's still mysterious and driven and full of consequence, and yes, it made me cry, but the dogs helped me through.
News, events, fun stuff, serious stuff, and online doings. I kept a personal blog for years at The Storybook Girl, and I'll slowly be migrating some of those posts to this blog.
