Ashley's Book Club

I just finished reading The Weight of Water. There were times I wavered between reading it just to finish it and reading it because I couldn't put it down and I wasn't sure I was going to recommend it, but I am. It is beautifully written, Anita Shreve has a way with words.

So although this one will not be on the "Required Reading List to Be Ashley's Friend", if you're bored and love books you should read it.

(Don't read the Amazon reviews, there is always some shit head that has to give away the ending)

Oh.

The Weight of Water.

Did you find it along a Michigan shoreline where I tossed it because I could not stand the end because it ripped me into a million pieces and forced Big A to remain one foot from me at further beach outings?

Just curious.

I love book recommendations! I would love to know what's on the required list to be your friend. Was that an early post I missed, or is that yet to come?
