the first book i read for 2017
was boys in the trees
by carly simon...
which is kind of weird for me
because i wouldn't consider myself
a carly simon fan...
not that i dislike her...
i just don't really know much about her.
i like the song "you're so vain".
that's about all i knew going into this.
i didn't even know she had been married to james taylor
(another person i know nothing about
and have never really listened to...)
and i definitely did not know that her father
was the simon in simon and schuster.
but i am a sucker for memoirs.
i always have been.
and this one did not disappoint.
her writing was both beautiful and sad...
i think the honesty was what broke my heart
when she wrote about her marriage.
in the end, i was happy that i chose this book to
start off my 2017 reading adventure....
