TGIF! We made it to another weekend! Today we’ve got our eye on a couple of books about family:
Talia’s reading HAVE A NICE GUILT TRIP by Lisa Scottoline & Francesca Serritella
The close-knit, outspoken Italian mother-daughter team returns for another poignant yet hilarious collection of essays about dating, men, and puppies (you decide which is more desirable and/or or easier to train). “Scottoline—prone to comedic one-liners—makes the pages fly by in a flurry of laughs. Serritella’s ode to her 90-year-old grandmother (affectionately referred to as Mother Mary) and her writings about her dog Pip are especially endearing.” — Publishers Weekly
Anne’s reading MY FAMILY AND OTHER HAZARDS by June Melby
Melby’s memoir of her family-run miniature golf course in the woods of Wisconsin is sharp, funny, reflective, and examines the particular pains of losing a childhood home. “A neat departure to a simpler era in American history, this memoir will induce nostalgia in anyone from the Midwest, particularly those who putt-putted their way around a miniature golf course on summer vacations.” — Library Journal
