Hungry by Stephanie Hamilton

"We all HUNGER for more meaning.  Searching endlessly, and insatiably so...trying to fill the cracks that creep into our existence.  We are waiting for someone, or something to come and light up our lives, when all along WE are the solution, WE are the creation, WE ARE OUR OWN SAVIOR." Stephanie's book is quite unique, it is hard to really classify. When reading it I am drawn in by the inspiring, thought-provoking, and thruthful words that she speaks, reflecting on our journey into finding what we need to fill that hole inside, that hunger we feel, but know not what for.

We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver

I first read this book about three years ago, and I have to admit that it took me on rather an emotional journey. At times I found it harrowing, at times challenging and at times sad, but I could not put it down. For those that do not know this book, it is written from the perspective of a mother, writing/talking to her husband about their son Kevin. The book takes us through her journey, discovering her pregnancy, becoming a mother and raising her child. It is a book that really challenges the nature/nurture question as her son Kevin has done a terrible thing and she is wrestling with how this … [Read more...]
