This weekend was my favorite sort of weekend. Friday night we had fun and hung out with the family. Saturday, we cleaned and organized all day. Sunday, we went to San Diego and had righteous family time. Absolutely fabulous. Almost all these pics are my sister's. So thanks dude!
I've read several books lately that I would recommend. Here they are in no particular order:
The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt - this book I loved. It was about a boy who loses his mother in a terrorist attack, and how he moves through life after. The characters were great, the places he lived were so descriptively written you feel like you know them, and of course NYC is one of the main characters of the book. I loved it.
Behold the Dreamers by Imbole Mbue - this book tells the store of Camaroonian immigrants to NYC in the early 2000s. It's a different NYC who stars in this book, but a familiar one nonetheless. The main character is a limo driver for a wall street exec. His wife is a student. They are working towards the America Dream when the economy collapses. It's a good time to read a story about immigration in America, so hit it.
Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Bali Kuar Jaswal - I will be shocked if they don't make this into a movie. It was absolutely hilarious. It's a story about a punjabi girl living in England who isn't making much of her life, so answers an ad to teach a writing class at the local community center. It's all Punjabi widows who show up - and they start writing sexy romance stories. It'll definitely make you blush but it will more make you laugh.
I'm currently devouring Educated, by Tara Westover, a memoir about a woman who was born & raised by survivalists in Northen Idaho. She never set foot in a classroom, never saw a doctor, worked in a junkyard scrapping metal with her dad in horrific conditions. It's awful sometimes to ready but I do recommend it so far.
