. . . for Lauren and Lauren: A quick hello and a new friend

July 17, 2013

A quick hello and a new friend

Thank you SO much for all of your congratulations on our baby girl!  The last few days have been quite a blur and we haven't even begun to adjust to life at home because we are unfortunately still with our little girl at the hospital.

Photo: How sweet is little Addilyn?  What a gift she is.  I'm hoping she never learns how to cry.  She's so cute and sleepy.

We've had a few minor complications with our sweet baby Addilyn but should get to go home soon.  I'm excited to begin life at home with our daughter and begin whatever kind of new "normal" we'll get to adjust too.  

I'm excited to have Jenn share with you some of her favorite summer reading choices and a little about herself.  I wouldn't consider myself much of a reader but I definitely become more of one in the summer and always enjoy hearing about good books to read.  So thank you Jenn for your post!  



Hi For Lauren & Lauren readers!

My name is Jenn and I blog over at Jennifer-Blake, a lifestyle blog about well, my life! I am a graduate occupational therapy student about to finish my last year and I currently reside in Massachusetts with my husband. My summer term for school ended in June which means 2 whole blissful months off. My husband just had hip surgery so we crammed most of our summer outings into the past two weeks, the rest of the summer is for slow relaxing days. Slow relaxing days means a lot of time for reading, and I am a total bookworm so I'm pretty excited!

Here is what is on my summer reading list!
Where'd You Go Bernadette: This has been sitting on my beside table for a while. I heard it can be hard to get into, but if you give it a chance it is a must read comedy.
Inferno: I have read a few of Dan Browns books, I loved Angel and Demons so I am excited to read his newest novel. I am typically a chic lit. girl, but I do love some suspense and action!
Adulting: I have followed Adulting the blog for a while, she cracks me up. I was excited when I saw her book at Barnes and Noble, I know it will make me laugh and be insightful.
Beautiful Ruins: I have never read anything by Jess Walter but I thought this would be a good place to start. The cover sucked me in as well as the plot!
The Testing: I just started this book and I am loving it so far. I was recommended it from a bookshop owner based on the fact that I loved the Hunger Games. It has a similar feel, but different story. I am really excited to see where it goes.
Little Women: This was a childhood favorite and after recently visiting Louisa May Alcott's house in Concord MA, I was sparked to re-read it and re-live some of my childhood again.

Whats on your summer reading list? I am always looking for recommendations.
Make sure to stop by and say hi!

Thank you Jenn!  To probably no surprise to you, I'd like to read the one that is like the Hunger Games, seeing as it is right up my teen drama loving alley.

I look forward to checking up on blogs and blogging more next week!

If you like the Hunger Games, I've been recommended the Divergent trilogy. I just finished the first book and it is SO good!! Just waiting for my library to get the 2nd one on the hold shelf for me!
