Welcome to Take Me Away!!
Hello! Thanks for stopping by Take Me Away, where I review books of a variety of genres. My favorite genres are literary and contemporary fiction, though I also enjoy some mystery/thrillers. I also enjoy sociological and psychological non-fiction. Check out the tabs across the top to navigate the site. All the reviews on this site are categorized by title (fiction or non-fiction) or by author. Check out the "About Jenny" section to learn a little more about me. Thanks again for stopping by, and feel free to leave a comment even if it's just to say hi! =)

Another week down! I had a lot of client cancellations this week -- everyone is getting sick. And well, the others are forgetting about their appointments. Anyway, this has freed up a lot of my time and I've done a lot of reading!
I'm still working on The Art of Racing in the Rain for the Real Simple Magaizine's No Obligation Book Club. It's an easy read and I keep wanting to read faster, but I'm trying to force myself to keep the pace with the discussions.
I bought and read Jodie Sweetin's memoir, Unsweetined, this week and also read April and Oliver by Tess Callahan. Those reviews will both be posted this week. Last night I read Push by Sapphire which is the basis for the upcoming movie, Precious. I guess I've read some shorter books lately and being able to finish these books has sort of motivated my reading. Sort of like jump starting your metabolism, haha.
I bought a lot of books just in the past week too! Can't wait to read them all!
And I hadn't really been paying attention to this whole FTC thing but looks like I should be?? So from now on I need to always post where I received a book from? It seems sort of silly to me since I just write in a silly ol' blog, but I guess if I'm going to be receiving books from publishers and authors then it's necessary? I don't know what I think about all that.
Anyhow, in other news, I also joined
