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! =)

Well, remember how last week I said I wanted to finish Before I Fall AND Winter Garden on Sunday and then read 3 MORE books on my work trip? Haha. I'm so overly ambitious. I finished Before I Fall on Wednesday on my flight back home and just finished Winter Garden yesterday. Forget about the extra 3!! I ended up not having nearly as much time to read as I thought I would. This was partly because there was some down time that I had free and instead of hanging out and reading I explored the surrounding cities a little bit. The other reason was because here in Florida, I'm used to having to wait outside the courtroom when I testify in a case. But where I was in North Carolina, all the witnesses are allowed to stay in the courtroom and watch the entire trial. So that's what I was doing with my other waiting time. Just for fun I've included a couple pictures of my trip up there. This was my first time ever in the mountains and it was an extremely scary experience for me!! I also hadn't seen snow in close to 10 years, so that was pretty cool.
Anyway, the review for Winter Garden will be up Friday. Check back tomorrow for a cool video involving some local Florida kids and reading! If you haven't already, check out the reviews I posted this week for If You Follow Me and Before I Fall. For today I will be reading (or finishing up?) The Unnamed which I started yesterday. I'm enjoying it so far. I've seen rave reviews for it, and my husband really liked it as well. I have another Magic game tonight. And at this one, my mother and a bunch of other women from Jazzercise will be performing at the pre-game show, haha! =-o Should be fun!
