Objects of My Affection
This is the first real book I've read (not on my Kindle) in quite awhile. I got this book from the library. Originally I heard about this book from Sara's blog. She always has good book reviews and I just add them to my to read list on Goodreads.
So the story is about Lucy, who has recently been dumped by her boyfriend. Her son is in drug rehab and she's pretty much sold all her belongings to be able to pay for the rehab. She gets a job helping Marva, who is/was an artist clean up her house. Marva is a hoarder. Lucy has one picture of her son and can fit all her belongings in her Mustang. You can imagine how all that goes.
In between all that is a lot of learning done by Lucy and a little bit by Marva, along with some good chick lit love story. It's a great fluffy not too deep read. Totally recommend it if you want to read something that is not "heavy".Pin It

Did you want to punch Lucy as much as I did? I pretty much felt like she was a moron and I was secretly hoping Marva would yell at her for being a moron. And then I kind of loved Marva. I don't know why, but I have a soft spot for grouchy ass old people.
