I just finished reading....

This is Not the Story you Think it Is: A Season of Unlikely Happiness by Laura Munson.


Remember her article in the New York Times? Her husband walked in one day and said that he didn't love her. She looked him right in the face and said "I don't buy it." She felt in her gut that the problem was his and that she could wait it out. So she never acted the victim, never treated him like someone who had deeply betrayed her...and it all turned out OK. She went on to write this book and I am so glad I read it. It really shows how to ride out a rough patch in a marriage by not accepting the mentality of a victim and by refusing to wallow.

The front part of this book was on the slow side, but the last half was super worthwhile.

What are you reading right now?


  1. OO! I want to read this! I'm reading "Orange is the new black" it's great!

  2. I'm reading "The Price of Motherhood: Why Why the Most Important Job in the World is Still the Least Valued" by Ann Crittenden. The first little bit hasn't been that engaging, so we'll see how it goes.

  3. Sounds good - adding it to the list. I'm currently reading the Host - which is by that lady that wrote the twilight books - it's actually really addictive!

  4. I just started this! About 1/3 of the way through and so far I'm enjoying it.

  5. Totally adding this to my list, think I've got most of your book posts marked. Thank you for the recommendations.


Hearing from you all makes my day!
