The month of March found me knocking off two more books from my list. I'm still working on The Tenant of Wildfell Hall...le sigh. I pick it up now and then but get easily distracted but other recommendations. I'm only human, geez :)
1) Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison by Piper Kerman
--Having watched the Netflix show beforehand and loved the stuffing out of it, I really wanted to pick up this book. I wasn't disappointed, either, just marveled at the liberties taken with the show. One of the biggest differences I saw was Kerman's relationship with Pennsatucky in the book versus the show. MAN, they really wanted to find some kind of crisis to develop within the show, but geez...that was quite a stretch, guys. The book made me feel akin to the women Kerman encountered, which also comes through in the show. Overall, great book and great show. Interesting insight into what happens when one thing F's up your life.
2) Eat Pretty: Nutrition for Beauty, Inside and Out by Jolene Hart
--I picked up this book at a recommendation over at A Beautiful Mess. It's right in line with health and nutrition books I feel drawn to read. It's a pretty good base for someone first getting into that field of thought, but I found myself at a few points thinking, "Elaborate some more on your idea here." Sometimes, I foundhte author wrote in great ideas but then didn't delve further into them as much as I'd like. Again, though, great book. I plan on trying out some of the more vegan-leaning recipes soon.
