Sister India by Peggy Payne: Book Review & Giveaway

Reading Sister India by Peggy Payne is like going on a vacation. That is, a quirky vacation that you can't quite come back from.

If you're expecting something like Eat, Pray, Love...well, then I would stay away from this pick! However, that's not to say you should stray from this book altogether. In fact, I found Sister India to be extremely refreshing. I don't know about you, but for me, that's something I find important when scanning for a book to read. 

Peggy Payne's well-written book easily captured my attention the whole way through. We tend to say that phrase a lot, and it isn't always true, but this adventurous, mysterious book with great great great characters is guaranteed to entice you from the beginning. Trust me; you'll see.

Where's That Girl?

I know I haven't been gone too terribly long from my blog, but I do know I won't be back too terribly soon.

There has been some grief surrounding me, my family, and my friends recently. Loss is never easy to deal with, and it never gets any easier. My father especially has had a rough time as of late, and it has been challenging watching him try to get by and to try to understand what has happened. If you pray, I would really love for you to pray for my family right now.

On top of everything, we've all been incredibly ill. Which, you can imagine, is not going too well with me since I'm already sick.

I'll still be on twitter every now and then, and my e-mail is always open, but I do not know when I'll actually get back to my blogging schedule. There's just been a cloud of depression hanging above my head lately.

I will say I've had one good thing happen: we got a pup.
Her name is Paisley, she's adorable, and she's half Yorkie/half Shih Tzu.
I'll leave you guys a picture of her cute face since this post has been nothing but sadness. She will alleviate all of that, trust me.
