Great Book - Life As We Knew It


This past weekend, I fell in love with a book by Susan Beth Pfeffer called Life as We Knew It. These days, I try my best to get in some reading between editing and writing. Well, once I picked up this book on Friday I couldn't put it down. (Ok, well the kids had to eat so I did have to stop.)

But the book is one of those where you keep saying to yourself--what happens next?

I have the next book in the series and I will let you know if its any good. Feel free to pass along any recommendations since I do not stick to one particular genre. A great book is a great book in my opinion.

I'm reading the second book right now. The beginning is slow, but I'm about to fall into it. It's getting good.

Hope you like it.

Ahhh! I read this book and went out to buy flour, canned goods, etc. the next day. It really freaked me out. Really.

I have hidden cash in my car, my garage, my bedroom now. Srsly. I'm a freak.

Elana you are too much.

Yes, this book does bring out those fears of uncertainty. What would happen if you lived without power for months and barely had food to eat? Powerful and frightening stuff. Especially for a parent.

Second book is still working its magic.
