The Guernsey Litereary and potato peel pie society

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie SocietyIt is truly sad that I have not blogged in such a long time.  As a matter of fact, it has been so long that for a brief moment in time I forgot my log in information.  This is something I plan to remedy and plan to blog more often.  Especially with the many changes that will be happening in the coming months.  The hubby will be deploying, however for security reasons I will not say when or where and if you must know then email me and if I know you, then I will tell you.  My friend Dana started an  online book club through Facebook and for the first book was the one in the title of this blog. I had never heard of it and was skeptical.  The title alone intrigued me. However, it took me a little bit to like it.  I am not a "read a book that is written as a diary of letters" type.  However, this has turned into my favorite book.  I know I will read it again.  It is historical fiction and a love story at the same time.  It was enjoyable to become part of the lives of characters and feel like  I was actually there.  I laughed and cried.  I related well to the main character, Juliet.  I am so much like her.  It really is highly recommended to read.  I still will be getting back to my list of  "100 best novels"  As for now, because I want to see the movie and my type A personality of sticking to my rule of "read the book, then watch the movie", I will be reading "The Time Travelers Wife"    I will update seperately on life here at Fort Stewart, which I can honestly say is well.
