Read, Run, Ramble

I'm just a girl on a mission - a mission to read many books, run (walk) many miles and ramble about it all! 


My main blog is on Tumblr, and I also have companion Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads pages.

The Middle Place

The Middle Place - Kelly Corrigan Corrigan gives a real voice to feelings we've all had. Her relationship with her family is enviable and we all wish we had a father that loved us in the way Corrigan's does her. I laughed and cried throughout and the tears were out of fear, sadness, and joy. Kelly is real, raw, and honest in her life story.I will say that at a certain point in the book I actually became disenchanted with the author-she seemed ungrateful, spoiled, and entitled at times. Then the end left me a bit dissatisfied; there were no epiphanies, lessons, or life changes. Surviving Cancer is huge. Having a father that survives Cancer several times is even more huge, but I never got the sense that it meant much to the author.
