We’re in Florida & A Book Review
Hey everyone! I want to thank you all so so much for your kind, heartfelt comments on Friday’s post! It means the world to me!
Chris and I are finally here in Boca Raton :). These past two days in the car have been looonnngggg. Chris’s car was packed to the max with the stuff he brought down here.
The plan was that Chris and I would alternate driving. Um…that didn’t happen. Poor Chris had to do all of it. Yesterday when we went to switch we couldn’t get his seat to move forward…and therefore my feet couldn’t reach the gas and break pedals. So, no driving for Lindsay.
Not only was this drive long (almost 18 hours) but I-95 is freaking boring! It’s really flat and there is hardly anything to look at. We had fun for a while trying to find license plates from all the states (we got a lot of them!), listening to music from when we were younger, and chatting. But we also got really tired and quiet at points. It happens. Thank goodness we are here now!
When we arrived early this evening, we brought all of his stuff inside and then immediately went grocery shopping. Yes, we are animals and food comes before everything :).
This is what we have to deal with now-
Or actually, Chris told me I didn’t really need to help. So right now I’m sitting on his bed and catching up on all of your wonderful bloggies!
Please disregard how I look in that pic haha. I desperately need to shower…I feel gross after sitting in the car all day!
Also, I cannot wait to workout tomorrow! Chris and I are gonna go over to the FAU gym and hopefully I’ll be able to go there while I’m here for the next few days. After sitting the car for two days, my legs and body desperately need to MOVE.
While Chris was kindly driving the entire way yesterday, I was reading this novel on my Nook! I started it on Friday evening and finished it last night. It was SO GOOD. When I first read the synopsis I wasn’t quite sure if I would like it, but I’m glad that my expectations were surpassed!
Here is an overview from Amazon:
Every day Christine wakes up not knowing where she is. Her memories disappear every time she falls asleep. Her husband, Ben, is a stranger to her, and he’s obligated to explain their life together on a daily basis–all the result of a mysterious accident that made Christine an amnesiac. With the encouragement of her doctor, Christine starts a journal to help jog her memory every day. One morning, she opens it and sees that she’s written three unexpected and terrifying words: “Don’t trust Ben.” Suddenly everything her husband has told her falls under suspicion. What kind of accident caused her condition? Who can she trust? Why is Ben lying to her? And, for the reader: Can Christine’s story be trusted?
This book was intriguing from the very beginning. I got sucked in right away and couldn’t put it down. It was very well written and definitely kept you on your toes. I was shocked at what happened at the climax…it was not how I expected the story to go, and I love that this book had the ability to surprise me like that!
Before I Go To Sleep was perfectly paced. It never dragged on and it also didn’t rush through things that you wanted to know more about. I’m still thinking about the book and everything that happened in it and what I would do if I were in a similar circumstance. There aren’t many books that can do that- so this is a definite winner! Also, this book is the author’s debut novel. I hope she continues to write!
Alrighty guys, I just wanted to check in with you all!I hope you’ve had fantastic weekends.
