I have been reading quite a few good books lately so I thought I would tell you about them.
Two are by Dr. Edith Eger. One is her memoir titled , The Choice: Embrace the Possible and the other, a self-help book is titled. The Gift 12 Lessons to Save Your Life. The author survived a concentration camp, lost many family members, but went on to have a productive life by getting a Doctorate of Psychology at the age of 50. She has helped many deal with PTSD and other issues. A lot of her advice is common sense, but a good reminder , especially that we can choose to not be victims despite anything we go through.
I also enjoyed Lilyville: Mother, Daughter and Other Roles I have Played by Tovah Feldshuh. I saw the book in Barnes and Noble under new non-fiction and it looked good so I got it from the library. Once I started reading it , I realized who the author is. she played Bubbe in one of my favorite films, A Walk on the Moon.
And one I could not finish reading was Julianna Margulies memoir, Sunshine Girl. She wrote how her mom moved when she and her sisters were visiting their father- and she left their cat to fend for himself. I could not get past that. I immediately hated her mother and every time I see the book it makes me think of her poor cat so I can’t finish it.
