Title: Unbearable Lightness
Author: Portia de Rossi
Finished: February 20, 2011
Format: First Edition
This is another one of those books I reserved immediately after it was released and never got a chance to read it the first time I had it. Ever since watching “Ally McBeal” I have been intrigued by Portia de Rossi and she seemed like a quiet soul and not much was said about her.
It was a very interesting book to read, to hear the struggle and wonder how someone can overcome such obstacles or even how they begin. I found myself learning a lot from her experience and how the human brain can trick us into thinking things and feeling that just because someone says something we don’t have to take it so literal or to the extreme.
I love how the book covers everything for the beginning to recovery and does not leave any details out and shows that despite the most dire of circumstances, goodness and happiness can come out in the end.
I very much enjoyed this book and the openness and candid nature in which Portia de Rossi bares it all for everyone to read.

Title: Heat Wave
Author: Richard Castle
Finished: February 15, 2011
Format: First Edition
It seems like I had this book forever (since the day it was released) before I finally managed to read it and now I wish I had read it sooner. It didn’t take long for me to pick up it’s counterpart only days later.
Heat Wave is the book that is in progress by writer Richard Castle in the TV show “Castle” on ABC. This quick mystery could easily be an episode or two part adventure in the TV show and has detective Nikki Heat being followed by magazine writer, Rook, for a day in the life piece of this specific department.
But unlike the TV show, author Richard Castle, predicts a different future for his characters, possibly a foreshadowing of what he wishes would happen between him and his muse. It was highly entertaining, fast paced once I got past picturing the characters of the TV show and paid attention to the actual book, and I couldn’t wait for more at the end.
One only hopes there will be more in the future.
