While looking for a picture of this book, I realized that I had listened to a Melody Carlson book on CD. I didn't even realize I had read or listened to anything by her. The book I listened to was
(There are two different covers to this book, so it may look a little different at your library.)
The main character is another 30 something girl who is trying to figure out life. She has a good job and a boyfriend, but ubruptly loses both. She moves back home to live with her mom and is faced with all sorts of challenges. Her mom has turned into a health nut babe, while she is gaining weight rapidly. She needs a job and a purpose. It's pretty cute. Here's a description I found online. "This sassy and hilarious novel leads readers on a romp through the wilds of relationships, romance, career, and spirituality, revealing that, while God’s plans may look drastically different than our own, it’ll always be a perfect fit."
While at the library, I also picked up another Melody Carlson book.
It's the first book in a series. I actually read it in about a day and a half this weekend. It's a totally different style than the other books. Each chapter is from a different person's perspective. It's about four girls that decide to live in a house together. They are all out of college and trying to figure out what's next in life. They each have their strengths, weaknesses and secrets that they bring to the table. Again, it was a fun easy read. I was sick of watching TV and this was a great way to pass the time. I'm looking forward to checking out the next book in the series. This book sort of built up and introduced the characters, so I imagine the next book will have more of an in depth story to it. I need some of these easy books to read sometimes. It helps clear the mind. :)
