when you need to laugh

when you need to laugh



Summer time is when I do the bulk of my fiction reading.

However, I have noticed a slight shift lately and I may start

to tip the scales in favor of fiction over non-fiction

throughout the year.

Most summers there is one book that leaps to the top

of my favorite reads.

Where’d You Go, Bernadette was a grand slam of

a pick a couple of summers ago.

The book is set in Seattle so for those of us residing in the

Pacific Northwest, our region comes to life and provides

ample reasons to laugh at ourselves.

If you don’t live in these parts, you get a glimpse in all its hilarity of

the extremes of being a northwestern-er.

The book is told primarily in text messages, emails and letters.

I would say it is one of the most original books I have ever read

and completely laugh out loud funny.

It didn’t matter how gorgeous the weather or plans we had,

all I wanted to do was sit in a chair (a deck chair outside at least)

and read, chuckle, read, laugh and repeat.

I am not going to give anymore details away as I believe

it is best to dive in without a map.

You will thank me.

Now for the few younger readers of this blog,

there is a bit of language.

I won’t go into all the side effects of using bad

language but just as a little reminder…



Enough said.

You have been warned.


Life can be a quite serious affair,

we can all do with a laugh from time to time.
This post is apart of the 31 days…yet again series
