I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday - Books: All the Girls Are So Nice Here and The Biden-Harris Haggdah Thank G-d

We may have been given complimentary copies for review purposes of one or more of any books and/or other products mentioned below. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Books: The Girls Are All So Nice Here and The Biden Harris Haggadah Thank G-d

Today we are recommending two books:


The first book we are recommending today is The Girls Are All So Nice Here by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn.  When Ambrosia was in college, she and her best friend Sloane (Sully)  Sullivan played with people's lives with serious consequences. Now on the eve of their college reunion, they are getting anonymous letters alluding to what happened then. Ambrosia is not that person anymore, but if the truth of what happened gets out, it could destroy the new life she's built for herself since that time. This novel says a lot about the way girls treat other girls and what can happen when that is taken to the extreme. It is absolutely heartbreaking and horrifying and yet you won't be able to put it down.


The second book we are recommending is The Biden -Harris Haggadah Thank G-d by Dave Cowen. This is a real prayer book with real Passover prayers written in both English and Hebrew. However, it is also a parody written as if the various parts of the service are being led by President Biden and Vice President Harris and other prominent politicians and their relatives and more. You definitely wouldn't want to use this book to actually run your service especially if there will be children attending as their some parts of the book that are definitely not appropriate for children. However, if you are happy about the way the election turned out and glad to be able to enjoy laughing at politics at least a little bit again, you may get a kick out of reading it.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.
