20140727_154837_resized

So the summer is practically over and you know what? Good! It was the most awful summer of my life. In fact, it couldn’t go away quick enough. Bring on the winter. I’m ready for short days, cold, snow, and hiding fat under my sweater. About the only thing that was worthwhile this summer were the 9 books (I use that term very loosely, since there are more pictures than words on many of the pages) that I read this summer.

Each one with its own sarcastic message or purpose that made me feel better in some small way. If you have been burned this summer by people and not the sun –  I highly suggest you pick up one of these ‘quality’ reads. It may not be that educational…but at least it will make you laugh. And when all you want to do is cry, laughter is the best medicine or revenge.
