Swim by Jennifer Weiner

Swim by Jennifer Weiner was first published as a short story  in her book Guy Not Taken (my review can be found here. It follows Ruth who is a writer on a popular tv show. Do to a series of events her life does not turn out the way she thought it would. She uses swimming as a way to escape the real world.

The first time I read this story I remember thinking I wish she would take this story and turn if into a full novel. Well I am very excited to report that she has. Her book The Next Best Thing will be published July 3, 2012. I have already read it and have a review coming soon. Stay tuned!

Explanation for Lack of Postings

I would like to explain the reason why I have not had any postings the last few weeks. The initial reason was because after 4 very long years I graduated from graduate school with my doctorate. I had paper work, meetings and end of my externship that I was taking care of along with doctoral hoodings and graduation ceremonies. 

This Saturday, the day before my brother and I's graduation my grandfather passed away. We have been dealing with trying to mentally and physically process this loss and sitting shiva.

I will continue to be taking a break from the blog for another week or so, but soon I will have several reviews up of several books including Jennifer Weiner's Then Came You, Recalculating, & Swim, Sophie Kinsella's Six Geese a Laying, Janet Evanovich's Love in a Nutshell and many others.

Thank you all for your support.
