Crazy is the new normal

You know crazy is really in now. As soon as Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah's couch all bets were off. Now you have Alec Baldwin giving marriage advice on a show produced by Jerry Seinfeld. Betty White hosting SNL. I am actually hoping Russell wins Survivor.Lauren Graham is in a family drama without Alexis Bledel. Next thing you know Marge will leave Homer for Principal Skinner. It seems like everyone is taking the crazy train. At least I am not on it alone anymore.

Drop by the library to check out these books and decide...Is life imitating art or is art imitating life?

Whacked by Jules Asner
Dani Hale is a Hollywood TV writer. She has been dating Dave, a director, forever (two years!) After hacking into Dave's email and cell phone she discovers he is cheating with Hollywood's new "it" girl, Chloe. Dani dumps him but is completely devastated.  I can relate to not getting out of bed, googling the ex and other silly things, all in the hope of discovering that he is just as miserable as you or at least hasn't married in the few short days you have been apart. Dani takes her need for revenge way too far...although it is fiction so a little wickedness is good.

Never Tell a Lie by Hallie Ephron
David and Ivy Rose are expecting their first child in just a few weeks and are having a yard sale to make room. Their lives are turned upside down after a girl who went to school with them and is also pregnant, visits their yard sale and is never seen again...How well do you really know your husband? Or your wife for that matter?

At First Sight by Stephen J. Cannell
OMG...how did I end up with a boy book. I must have been off my meds. Maybe I picked it up thinking it was a Nicholas Sparks? Well it was not bad. Chick Best, a dot-com millionaire, is on the verge of bankruptcy. He has a high maintenance wife and a drug using teenage daughter. On Christmas vacation he becomes enamored with a beautiful woman by the pool. Chick befriends her and her husband all in an effort to be with her. Even when he returns from vacation he cannot stop thinking of her. The only problem is his wife and her husband...and Chick is going to solve both the problems.
