Weekend Reads Before Frankenstorm Hits

Forgotten by Catherine McKenzie

If you’re living any where near the East coast of the United States, you’ve probably heard of Frankenstorm by now. Everyone is preparing for the combination of Hurricane Sandy, a nor’easter, and a blizzard to hit somewhere between Virginia Beach and New York City. All the meteorologists are freaking out. I feel like I’m in a SyFy disaster movie.

I’m prepared. I picked up some water and tequila. Plus I have a stack of books to read while we’re stuck inside. If you’re looking for some weekend reads, check out some of my book reviews from other sites I contribute to:

Over at I’m Not the Nanny, I reviewed a must have book for all moms everywhere:

Thanks to the new book Geek Mom: Projects, Tips, and Adventures for Moms and Their 21st-Century Families, I can share my geeky passions with my kids. The book is co-written by the bloggers of Wired Magazine’s Geek Mom Blog: Natania Barron, Kathy Ceceri, Carrina Lawson, and Jenny Williams. Reading these talented women’s bios made me feel proud to be a mom. They show that you can be a mom and still pursue your passions. Maybe you don’t consider yourself a geek. As you read this book, you’ll learn that you’re geekier than you ever thought. Even me.

If you’re looking for a great escape read, try the newest book by Catherine McKenzie:

I’m not living the life I imagined back in my college days. I never dreamed about working from home and raising two young kids in my early 30s. Heck, I originally didn’t even plan on getting married until I turned 30. While I wouldn’t change chasing my toddler at the park or typing at my desk into the wee hours of the night, I wonder what I might be doing today if I had gone into technology instead of the arts. Luckily, I can makeover my life vicariously through the new novel Forgotten by Catherine McKenzie who also wrote Arranged and Spin.
