So, I only managed to read one book for the month of May, but I am half way through another currently. I got so caught up in this tv series on Netflix that I have been loving Lost Girl that it has taken over my evening book reading time. I just have been glued to the screen. I am going to be taking a back seat with it though and will try to read three books in June. Danielle gave me three new books for my birthday and I am DYING to read one in particular. I might just read two of those new ones and the current one I am reading now. We shall see…
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I only really enjoyed the first part and the last part. The part in the middle, I skimmed over for the most part. I found that it was very dragged out and overly descriptive. I do want to read her sequel, because I found her relationship at the end of the book fascinating. It was a very interesting read that lasted me 4 years, because I couldn’t get into the middle section. Might be the longest it took for me to finish a book. It was a good book, but I do not recommend it. I didn’t enjoy it fully and it took 4 years to finish. It would be a lie to recommend it. I enjoyed the concept of it though. I find the author’s life was interesting, but the second book seems more up my alley. So, this book wasn’t terrible or else why would I want to read another book of hers. It just didn’t keep my interest.
May’s book was YEARS in the making and took FOREVER to read. I am glad to be done reading it and I know that it will not survive the move next year. I plan on buying a house next year and will probably start packing up things that I don’t need in March or April. I am hoping to find the perfect home by September. So, next year will be a big declutter of stuff too. I have already donated three tote bags filled of Dean’s old clothes, the saucer bouncer, the unicorn, the activity table, and a tote bag full of old toys that Dean doesn’t play with to a new mom in need. It feels so good to let so much stuff go. Now, Dean’s room is cleaner without so much clutter of toys he doesn’t play with it.

I have never read this book but so many people talk about. I like that you skimmed the middle part – haha! I am skipping on it 🙂
Lol. At least now I can watch the movie. Can you believe that she has written tons of books?! For sure this book was overhyped.
I didn’t know that she had more than 1 book! Never been super drawn to books like this, I hear the movie is pretty good 😛
I think I need one more movie to watch to post my movie review post. I just, I know what I am watching. lol. As long as it is on Netflix.
OMG, I totally loved the book. I guess with books it also depends on your mood and what you expect of them. I’m sorry it didn’t make quite the impression on you as it did on me, but the movie is totally worth checking out. It’s cutsier and lighter than the book, I could say it’s even on the verge of comedy. I read the book after watching the movie and they’re like distant cousins, that’s how much they resemble one another. I can’t wait for your movie review!
It’s just the whole middle part, but I blame it on being westernized. 🙂
