My Sister's Keeper.... Girlfriends Book Review

Hi Everyone!
I have been gone and off the map as far as blogging goes. I have missed you all and I'm ready to get back! Over the next few posts I will do some topics that kind of explain what I've been up to.
You'll have to stay tuned! : )

Here is my book review for My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult.
I really liked this book and I think that Ms. Picoult did a really wonderful job of writing story from so many different prospectives. The book raises important ethical questions about who plays God and says "when!" . I recommend the book!

Now! Having said that here is my personal opinion. I felt that the token homosexual relationship was obligatory and not pertinent to the story. I thought the ending was cheep and fairytale-ish!
Ms. Picoult is clearly a wonderful writer and cabable of more. I really hate it when I love a story until its ending sells me out. It would be a perfect Lifetime Movie! Sorry that's just my opininion.

Our next Bookclub book will be A Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindberg

I Finaly Got Those Pillows Made!

Do you remember my bargain fabric? Click here as a little reminder. Well, I finaly got them made! They turned out pretty good I think....
Here's the blow by blow!

Ignore the ugly plaid vinyl tablecloth..... That's just what I put on the dining room table to protect it....

Don't worry ... I don't keep them all piled up on one chair..... That's just to show them to you.
