Crazy Bibliophile and Book Pimp (Not So Anonymous)

I am a mother of two boys and avid reader; I practically live and breathe books. If I could sustain my life on just reading, I would live forever. I'm weird, and proud of it. I have traveled to many places: Mexico, St. Marteen, Prague, England, Cozumel, and Canada to name a few. Many moons ago I co-hosted "Welcome to Insanity" radio show on a micro radio station in TX- but our show was played via streaming internet in coffee houses in Amsterdam. I have a BA in theater. I used to be "the finder of lost things" but I think my last child robbed me of my gift. Now I just have a large collection of useless information... it goes with my growing mountain of "to be read" books

Hereafter - Terri Bruce I am marking this as read, but I only reached the 60% mark. I found it to be well written if a little lengthy, and not a bad story. The reason why I am not able to finish is entirely a personal reaction based on my history. Basically, it struck too close to home, so to speak, and hit a nerve I hadn't expected it to bother.

I would not use my response as a deciding factor of whether or not to read- had I not had the personal history I did I would have had no difficulty finishing the book. Many have loved it, and I would recommend reading and deciding for yourself.

I do want to thank Terri Bruce for offering me a copy to read and review, and apologize for having personal life prevent me from finishing the book. Should you write another (with someone other than Irene as the main character) I would be more than happy to read it!
