I think I’ll indulge in Maria Semple’s book, Today Will Be Different, during the Christmas holidays. What’s better than light, relatively mindless reading during the holidays, especially a comic novel from someone who used to write for TV shows like Mad About You and Arrested Development? The book’s title is pretty much every mother’s mantra as we strive for improvement and a bit of perfection in our everyday lives as a person, parent and partner. The main character, Eleanor, attempts to have that kind of day when (surprise, surprise) something happens to change the course of her day and her life. I have yet to read Semple’s other book, Where’d You Go Bernadette, but I may also check it out once I get through her most recent one.
Have you read any of Maria Semple’s book? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
