Book Review

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford

I enjoyed this book immensely. Mostly because it is historical fiction and set in Seattle. Seattle is where I was born and lived the first 10 years of my life. I love the city and many special people to me still live there. The main characters Keiko and Henry live in the chinatown and japantown neighborhoods of the city. These two kids both go to an all white school and stick out especially with the recent bombings of pearl harbor. Their friendship grows and is interrupted by the round up of all first and second generation Japanese to internment camps. The second story line the novel is Henry in his fifties recovering from his wife's recent passing and trying to figure out how to communicate with his only son.

Next book: I started reading Nefertiti by Michelle Moran last night but was reminded by another fellow bloggers blog about the release of The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. I am trying to figure out how to read it on my iphone.


Andrew has his nine month well baby appt tomorrow. I am really interested to see how much he weights. That boy is a linebacker through and through. He is one solid baby. He is doing well rolling around with his toys and babbling away. Right now he is going to day care half days while I teach summer school.


I will be 6 weeks pregnant this week. Andrew and BB2 will be 17 months apart. Should be an interesting first year! Right now I am only feeling sick in the evenings and have some pulling pain every now and then. Other than that I don't feel too preggo yet. Except for the Margarita's I wont be able to have for the next year or so!
