Lisa's Friday Reviews


        Here we are with another promise of fantastic weekend reading. You have plenty of time to head to the library or bookstore after work. Get ready for some great reading.


                                             
                        MY YOUNG ADULT FIX

Hold on to your reading minds, all you lovers of YA fiction and anyone with half a brain. The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon is a must, must read! Author of #1 New York Times bestselling Everything, Everything, Yoon creates a life experience in the day of young Korean-American Daniel and illegal Jamaican immigrant Natasha. While on his way to an interview that will define his college career, Daniel spies gorgeous Natasha. Performing the ultimately worst romantic move ever, Daniel accidentally destroys Natasha's prized headphones and is relentless in his pursuit to make things better. Little does he know that Natasha's chore of the morning is of equal importance. She is to be deported in a few short hours and is making a last attempt of pleading her case to remain in America.

Yoon is also the author of instant NY Times bestseller Everything, Everything, next on my library list. Yoon is my gift to myself. My discovery of new YA author. Discovering new authors is such a rush! I am adding everything Yoon to my summer reading list!

Riding the MS broom

Do you ever feel like the ultimate witchy woman? That is actually a rhetorical question because I know you do. We all do whether we mean it or not. And guess what? We have a right to feel that way. Our brand of broom is a touch one to ride. That is why I truly believe that our supreme master, who ever/whatever that may be, doesn't throw us more than we can catch.

MSers (I read recently that this is an inappropriate way in which to refer to individuals with multiple sclerosis. The source of this judgement obliviously does not live with the disease. MS Warriors are far less offended by such a label than that.) are strong individuals who thrive on finding a purpose, a solution, a balance.

We are dependent on our co-pilot Common Sense. Care Givers are a beautiful addition to our lives, but many MSers (I did it again!) are not fortunate to have someone to clean our broom and dust off the daily spider webs that clutter the  cognitive mess of our brains. I learned that long before MS becam…

Yoga Burn gives new incentive to my morning routine.

I am not one much for online shopping indulgences, but a couple of weeks ago I allowed myself the rare treat of purchasing the Yoga Burn program advertised on Face Book. This morning I completed week one of the monthly scheduled routine and I even took time to meditate under the guidance of Yoga instructor Zoe Bray Cotton.

Laugh if you must, but I really, really, enjoyed the meditation exercise. I realize this is a solitary activity and I will never practice this in front of husband and/or son. 

I felt wonderful afterword, though. So at peace and relaxed. I always knew I was a Zen Goddess at heart.

What I really love about this program is that it "is a comprehensive online yoga course directed toward women only."  The older I get, the more I appreciate anything to do with "for women only". Weird, huh?

Zoe' voice is so very soft and inviting. As she leads me through my morning poses, I really feel as though she is my new morning bestie. Of course, I have only comple…

This Writer's Euphoric Journey

It is November and that means National Novel Writing Month. I participate every year. As always, I am behind on my writing goal for the month: WRITE 50,000 WORDS  IN 30 DAYS. 

With only two days to go, I still need 10,000 to finish. 

So...I will see you here again on Wednesday or at the end of my journey of 50,000 words. Until then, breathe.
