Friday Finds: The Folded World

The Folded World

The Folded World by Amity Gaige

Friday Finds

Friday Finds is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Here’s the blurb from the publisher:

When Charlie Shade and Alice Bussard find each other, neither is prepared for the powerful, aching feeling of love that unites them. After falling for the cheerful and empathetic young man, Alice asks God: “Please, leave us alone. Leave us just like this.” But as their relationship evolves, and their family grows with the addition of twin girls, so too does Charlie’s career as a social worker. Drawn to people in crisis, Charlie struggles to remain neutral when dealing with the troubled souls he meets. But as boundaries begin to blur and temptations arise at work and at home, Charlie and Alice head toward an emotional collision that will challenge their marriage in ways they never thought possible.

I forget where I first saw this but it sounds like it’s filled with a lot of internal conflict. Isn’t the cover lovely? What did you find this week?


A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste

Hello Peeps!! I am having a difficult time with post read-a-thon-ness. I was so “go go go” and now I am so “no no no.” I am still reading, that will never stop but my body is not cooperating and I’ve been a tad blue.

It didn’t help that the kids and I got into an accident yesterday on my glorious furlough day. It wasn’t our fault but I have never been in an accident and today I am all sore and crabby and really don’t want to be at work. Everyone if fine though. However, some of you know that I have Lupus and I think the added stress triggered some sort of flare.

In addition to that, the Boy has been having some trouble in school so I have been doing 6th grade math with him and can I just say for the record how much I hate math? I hate it! I paid my dues and yet here I am having to sit through it again. Doesn’t seem quite fair. Oh, and there was that issue with his cell phone where he inadvertently subscribed to some questionable social networking sites. It took an hour and a half of me on the phone trying to get it all straightened out. What a mess!

With all this going on, my brain is a tad foggy. Spongy I guess you could say. I could blame the #IHeartTheSpark Twitter event because reading The Last Song turned my brain to mush and it hasn’t quite recovered but to be fair, I’ll just chalk it up to these other events.


On a happier note, yesterday I received Sunflowers as part of Book Club Girl’s Blog Talk Show. I also received the lovely bookmark that I won from Thomas over at My Porch. Let me tell you, getting these things in the mail after being in a car accident was like a sign from above telling me, “Don’t despair Ti! All will be okay!” 

Tomorrow I am the last TLC tour stop for The Return. I am looking forward to it and by then I am really hoping this wave of blueness passes.
