I had been reading a lot lately. I just finished Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia by Elizabeth Gilbert. This book is about the author journey leaving behind all the trappings of American success (marriage, house in the country, career) and find, instead, what she truly wanted from life. It was a good book, very educational. She takes you to different places and talks about their culture and history. The only thing bad I found is that, is not engaging. I could close the book and forget I was even reading it for weeks. When you read it you’re like “ok this is nice” but that’s about it. Not much intrigue or humor. It’s a more mature book than what I usually read.
I also finished Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella. This one is about a free spirit girl, Emma, who spills all her secrets to a handsome stranger in a plane after thinking she’s going to die. Or at least, she thought he was a stranger. But next Monday morning, Emma's office is abuzz for the arrival of Jack Harper, the company's elusive CEO. When all the sudden Emma is in front of the stranger from the plane, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her. It was very refreshing and light to read, my kind of reading. The story was exciting and when you think anything can’t get any worse, it does. I couldn’t stop reading so I finished it in two days. It was awfully funny and I think all girls can relate to Emma, the main character. After all, everyone got secrets.
My next reading will be Dirty by Megan Hart. Do you remember a Friends episode that Joey discovers Rachel’s erotic novel? Well yes, it’s an erotic novel. Some of my friends are into them so why not give it a try? LOL I will let you know how it goes.
Now, I made a spreadsheet on Excel with all the entries and went to Random.org where they chose an unbiased number. Without further due, the winner of my first giveaway is:
