Bird by Bird
by Anne Lamott
Thus far my FAVORITE line from this book:
“Very few writers really know what they are doing until they’ve done it. … One writer I know tells me that he sits down every morning and says to himself nicely, “It’s not like you don’t have a choice, because you do — you can either type, or kill yourself.”
Books that I have read and you should read too!!!
Dolls Behaving Badly
by Cinthia Ritchie
A comical account of the author’s journey through her life as she hides her secret of making “dirty” barbie dolls!!! Which ultimately brings her all the happiness she had hoped for!! Cinthia is a FANTASTIC author that likes to keep it real and will keep you engaged the whole way through. Definitely give a whirl!!
by Cinthia Ritchie
This novel is FAN-Freakin’-Tastical!!
Strap yourself in and get ready for the ROLLER COASTER ride that is Cinthia Ritchies style of story telling. There are many ups, downs and “arounds” as Cinthia provides a very raw and exposed account of her upbringing and the unfortunate path to her sisters passing. But not a mournful read by any means, and plenty of details and “thrills” to keep the pages turning until the very end. I am a very slow reader and typically take weeks to finish books, but finished this in less than 1 week as I could NOT put it down! A “soul opener” for sure. Cannot wait to read more from this magnificent author!!!
