Twitterature :: May 2014

Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy hosts a monthly link-up for sharing casual, tweet-sized book reviews.  Here's what I've been reading!

Becoming Sister Wives :: Kody, Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn Brown

Are you laughing at me?  Can I blame you?

This was a silly, on-a-whim grab from the NEW shelf at the library because I've seen some of this show.  An interesting look into the modern-day polygamy...but it definitely cemented my opinion that it doesn't work as well as they'd like it to work: lots of jealousy, financial struggles, and emotional problems below the surface.  Monogamy works; I think we'll stick with it. ;)

Taking Charge of Your Fertility :: Toni Weschler

Anne of MMD recommended that women of all ages and stages read this book to better understand their own body and fertility.  So glad I finally took that advice; I feel so much wiser about my business than all the complimentary-deodorant-and-maxi-pad classes in the world could have taught me.

How She Does It :: Anne Bogel

Speaking of Anne, she recently re-released her ebook on the new wave of women (and families) who are making family and career goals work for everybody by bending the rules and redefining roles.  Great insight and lots of examples show that if so many other ladies can make it work, so can I (or you!).  Highly recommend you snag a Kindle copy for just $5!

Pawn of Prophecy :: David Eddings

A fantasy not of my usual purview, but recommended (and borrowed) from a friend.  Fun and engaging, full of very well-developed characters on a quest to retrieve a stolen item and a young boy trying to figure out who he really is.  Probably a go for LOTR fans.

  1. On polygamy: I never believed those shows on the topic who paint a pretty picture. The Bible makes it pretty clear that polygamy sucks for everyone involved.

    I love TCoYF too and think it's a must read for all women.

    And the poor polygamist husbands should read it too so he'll understand why his wives all get their periods at the same time. ;)
