Whatcha Reading Wednesday! 📚 . I finished Behold the Dreamers last weekend (sorry for those of you who loved it — it was just okay for me), so my new “fun” book for this week is Happier At Home by @gretchenrubin . I haven’t read The Happiness Project yet (though I want to!!), so I’m reading them out of order, but this is what my library had on hand. 🤷‍♀️ And I picked up the gist pretty quickly without having read the other. 😉 . Oh my goodness, I am loving it! She is making me think a lot about cultivating my own happiness AND how my happiness affects the people I love. . I’m not very far, so I’m reserving final judgment. But so far, it has been excellent!
Good morning my lovlies!! That was BRUTAL waiting at the bus stop this morning -27 feels like -34 with the windchill 🥶this is what my next hour looks like.. coffee, candle and a book (once I can feel my fingers again) and a Cozie Blanket. Good gravy this cold snap is intense. excited to see how these candles burn! (Spoiler alert: There May be a new bookish product review coming in the next day or two!!) . ❁ ❁ ❁ #bookblog #booklover #reading #lovetoreadbooks #MomsWhoRead #buildingalibrary #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #abibliophilesbookblog #read #booknerd #bookworm #bookfeaturepage #bookreview #bookstagram #wordpress #literature #bookaholic #booksandcoffee #bookish #momwithablog

When they were little and whirlwinds of energy, I wondered if they would ever settle down. I knew I didn't want to calm them with screens, so we set out to establish rhythms and routines of reading by both modeling this to them and reading aloud. The results... they are still crazy active, but they also love curling up with books. They love our read aloud times. Want to raise readers? 📚Read to your kids. 📚 Let them see you reading. 📚 Limit screen time - especially in the little years. 📚 Make time in your lives to curl up with a good book.
A new review is now up on my blog! I also just want to say Congratulations to this book and all of its authors on winning first prize in the Non-Fiction Category at the first annual Legacy Book Festival of the Pacific Awards!

Alright.

2019 Reading Challenge, book 1! A book you chose for the cover. Listen. I totally judge books by their covers. I OFTEN choose books based almost solely on the cover. I’ll give the synopsis a cursory glance, but the cover is usually what really pulls me in. Lately it’s easier for me to choose all of my books from the comfort of my couch, put them on hold at the library, and just pick them up at the desk. For this challenge though, I actually went and browsed the shelves. It helped that it was one of the extremely rare occasions I have to go to the library alone 😉 This cover definitely grabbed my attention, especially because it’s January and doesn’t this cover look so WARM? 😍 The book itself met my expectations (as books with covers that I love generally do) and was a very enjoyable read. Don’t be afraid to judge a book by its cover sometimes friends 😉 • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #modernmrsdarcy #modernmrsdarcyreadingchallenge #idratherbereading #momswhoread #homeschoolingmom #momlife #readinglife
I talked last post about how the library is the best because I walk out with stacks of books FOR FREE! But the word that really comes to mind when I think of the library? REFUGE. It’s always felt like a refuge, especially on bad days, but I will never forget the time after Riley was born when it was the most important refuge. If you’ve followed me for a bit you know I had Riley in July 2017 and I struggled almost immediately with really bad PPD and anxiety. I wasn’t allowed to do much with my recovery and I barely left our apartment. I just felt so overwhelmed by everything. Will went back to work, family went home. And here I was with a 6 week old baby by myself. The biggest thing I had done was taken her and Finn for a walk in our apartment complex solo which doesn’t sound like much but it was for me right then. I had gotten cleared for taking walks at 6 weeks and I decided I needed to just go somewhere with her and prove to myself I could. So where did I go? The library (@williamjeanesmemoriallibrary ) for baby storytime because it felt safe. I was in tears before I even got out the car because she screamed the whole way. She was by far the youngest baby and she cried a lot and I was so frazzled & then I spilled her bottle and dropped her pacifier. I was in tears. The other moms were so kind and I finally relaxed & just tried to enjoy our first solo outing. I might have cried but I kept going back and the library was the place where I went as I was finding my confidence as a mom and fighting back against PPD (with help of meds). It was a refuge for me even as she grew (and even still now). It’s a place I depended on for being safe and known, where I could chat with adults when I needed and where I knew I could go for FREE when I needed to get out of the house. When we moved in June of last year the library slowly became my refuge here too (though I struggled with comparing it to my old one). I depend on our Monday storytime and connecting with other moms there. When I feel stir crazy and don’t feel like driving far (or spending money bc I can’t) we go to the library and just browse and play. The library is, & always has been, my refuge in so many ways.
💫Guys...I struggle too. Some days more than I’d like to admit. But we have a choice. We can be a victim of our circumstances...or we can be the hero of our own story. Push through the hard. Write your own ending.
First book of the year—finished! Super cute story set in Nantucket. I liked it so much I just may pick up the sequel!
Marni Mann, I should message you a picture of the puddle of tears that accumulated after I reached the last chapters of When Ashes Fall. I don’t know you, so I won't do it because you might think I’m nuts. This book shredded my heart and soul. I think a sunny day and piece of chocolate cake will make everything ok again. And maybe some decongestant for my stuffed up nose. The sunny day and cake reference will make sense after you read this story. I’m not going to spoil this book for you. Don’t read any reviews that resemble book reports and that might spoil this devastatingly, beautiful and haunting story of love and second chances. Go in blind, grab a box of tissues and prepare for a bittersweet book hangover from all the feels. All the stars. When Ashes Fall by Marni Mann is LIVE!

what are you reading right now?! i’m a nerdy student at heart. research makes my heart happy and reading lists are the stuff dreams are made of...you too? i’ve long been making myself a monthly curriculum to challenge myself to read books that are a bit outside my comfort zone. the key is to be realistic...i’ve got two gremlins crawling all over me during most of my waking hours which means i need a plan. ... i have “soul work” books for my morning quiet time...i wake up at 5:30 most mornings because as an introvert, i NEED alone time to survive. ... i have a few “interesting browse” books for during the day when i have snippets of time. i keep these accessible so that i can grab for them rather than my phone. ... for nighttime reading, i have my “rest and escape” books. these help my brain coast into slumber without thinking heavy thoughts. ... it used to kill me to be in the middle of multiple books, but i’ve actually found that i finish more books this way. i don’t get stuck in a reading rut or stop reading for long periods of time because of a dull book. life’s too short to read boring books! ... january’s curriculum soul work: the way of the happy woman (incredible) interesting browse: the backyard homestead, the splendid table’s how to eat supper, and you are your child’s first teacher rest and escape: china rich girlfriend!!! . . . . . #momswhoread #booklist #thewellwomenread #readingisfun #chinarich #thewayofthehappywoman #motherhood #therealdeal #postpartum #motherhoodrising #honestmotherhood #postpartumhealing #momtribe #uniteinmotherhood #iamwellandgood #savedbygrace #shiftyourjanuary
January’s book of the month! 📚 This book makes some bold claims (and admits they SEEM that way), but it also GUARANTEES implementing the Miracle Morning Method will work. 💁🏻‍♀️ I’m only on chapter 2, and I believe him. (In 2016), the average American was: 🚶🏻‍♀️20lbs overweight 💰 $10,000 in debt 😕 Slightly depressed ☹️ Unhappy in their job 👯‍♀️ has less than one close friend I can’t imagine that’s changed much, but how sad is that if even some of it is accurate?! Becoming a coach and starting my business literally changed every single one of those for me. Well, I had a handful of close friends, but now I have more. I digress though, I just wanted to share this book with you! We have a small group reading it together! We’d love to have you!
So pleased to get a 5 star review for BETWEEN THE LIES #Repost from @zubscovered with @regram.app ... 🌟BOOK REVIEW🌟 There has only been a handful of times when I have read a book that has caused me to sit there and think ‘wtf just happened?!’ This was probably the most suspenseful and twisted, rollercoaster of a book that I have read this year. Assume nothing. Don’t be like me and think ‘oh yeah it was him, or him or her’ because I promise you one thing you won’t get it right. What would you do if you woke up and didn't know who you were? What if your past remained a mystery? What if the people you should be able trust are lying to you? The cliff hanger sentences that Adams leaves at the end of each chapter only adds to the suspense. You will feel an unhealthy obsession to keep reading long into the night to just confirm that your theory is right – only to find out you were so very wrong. She builds this tension in each of her chapters, a clever way to lure the reader away from the actual bombshell that she reveals towards the end, right at the perfect time. I actually sent Michelle Adams a picture of a revelation in the book with shocked face emojis and I don’t usually do this! It wasn’t a slow burn read either. It was fast paced and there was not a single time when I thought this is dragging a little. Adams is obviously a very talented writer and her information with regards to the medical condition of the main character was phenomenal. She clearly has put a lot of thought and research into this book. None of it was far-fetched and it all intertwined with the narrative effortlessly. This book did it for me. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 stars were awarded and it was worth every single damn star. Bravo.

Book recommendation time! Folks, if you love storytellers of the epic kind I suggest you check out Joe R. Lansdale. Years ago on Mother’s Day my guys bought me his Complete Drive-In book. Since that day my love for reading has really been something I try to make time for each day. **The story is told through the eyes of Stanley Mitchell, a thirteen-year-old boy, the younger of two children. The Mitchells are the owners and proprietors of the only drive-in theater in Dumont. Stanley discovers a tin box containing a collection of troubled love letters that ultimately lead him to a burned-out house, the mysterious deaths of two young women and various secrets that the Dumont leaders would prefer remain buried. Stanley's ally is Buster Smith, the projectionist at the drive-in theater, an elderly black man whose attempts to drown his demons in alcohol are doomed to failure, but who has a depth that only Stanley is aware of. In attempting to solve the mysteries of the deaths of the two women, Stanley exposes himself, his family and his friends, to danger.

I’ve just finished my third book of 2019, The Skylarks War by Hilary McKay. This was a December read in the #ROSBC . I had half decided not to bother reading it, until I read that it had one the Costa Children’s Book Award and I figured I’d give it ago. I’m so glad I did! The book follows Clarry, who’s mother died 3 days after giving birth to her. Clarry lives in London with her brother, Peter, and their distant father. They spend their summers in Cornwall with their grandparents and adored cousin Rupert. Rupert goes to boarding school the rest of the year, and eventually Peter follows, leaving Clarry mostly alone in London. The First World War starts... and the sadness, fear, loneliness, determination... This book is beautifully written, I can imagine my kids reading it when they are older and it really sticking with them for a long time. I feel like I should still be reading it, im still thinking about Clarry, Peter and Rupert days later. #leesylireads #minibookreview #theskylarkswar
This book, guys. Classic case of #bookstagrammademedoit , plus @bobsbeachbooks just *happened to have it* while I was perusing at the coast, plus I’m seeing @charlotte.reads.books Saturday for #pdxbookbabes and I knew she’d read it = me kinda/sorta impulse buying it. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 📖 I read the whole thing yesterday (it’s an excellent #bookyoucanreadinaday option, btw), and truly enjoyed it. #takemybananas 🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌 📖 Bonus note: #oyinbraithwaite managed to give us this wonderful story without using profanity or graphic sexual content, which I know many of my #bookstagramfriends prefer not to read. Yes, there is violence and some pretty unhealthy family dynamics, but it IS a book about a serial killer, after all! 🧺🔪🧼 I’m glad I bought this one to add to my #homelibrary , because I’ll definitely reread it📖🖤 Ps: #bobsbeachbooks offered a 25% off incentive with new releases if you paid 💵. This BEAT amazon’s best price. #independentbookstores take note-THIS IS BRILLIANT and I’d buy all my new releases this way! #independentbookstore #independentbookshop

Good morning, Booklings! 🦜 . Does your friends and family know you have a bookstagram account? What reaction do you usually get when you tell people? 📖 . I’m pretty open about it, and I know some of my friends and family don’t really”get it,” but they’re typically non-readers anyways. They just write me off as being weirdly nerdy and move on. But I love finding kindred spirits on booksta. Even some of my coworkers follow my account which is pretty cool. I’ve never been into photography, but now I guess I can add book photographer to my list of hobbies. 📸 . Daughter of The Pirate King was on my tbr list last year, but I never got around to it. So it’s near the top this year. I’m currently in the Pirate-y part of Empire of Storms and it has me even more excited to dig into DotPK when I’m done with the ToG series. Who doesn’t love pirates?!? ⚔️ . Even our youngest likes pirates.

Early morning “me” time #earlyriser #momswhoread
Guys, I went and joined the library and I think I made a mistake 🙊 I looked online and all the books I wanted were not on the shelf so I placed a bunch of holds, thinking they would trickle in. Well, a few days later I got a text that two of my holds were in so I went and picked them up. I started worrying because the TBR pile of books I own is already out of control, and now these are added in but I have to read them first because due dates. So I start Where the Crawdads Sing and figure I’ll bang these out. Next thing I know I got a text today that three more are in. How am I going to manage all these books?!!! Help!

Here’s a classic - The Very Hungry Caterpillar by @worldericcarle - one of my favorite children’s books of all times! The reasons why are obvious. Fun, silly, bright and educational. The story explains the life cycle of a butterfly 🦋 and captivates young readers by adding in a funny list of all of the goodies the “very hungry caterpillar” devours before forming his cocoon. We used different shaped noodles 🍝 when discussing the life cycle of a butterfly after reading the story. We then drew our own butterfly step-by-step and twisted pipe cleaners into our own colorful winged creatures. If you haven’t read this book yet, run to your library!
What’s one thing you do for self care with no regrets? I like to whiten my teeth with those whitening strips. 😁 The only problem with this is I forget to keep up with them. I mean they’re only like every night for a week but nope! I forget! And I only do them like once every 2 years but I feel no regret when I actually use them. 💁🏻
Today we spent most of the day playing. The girls decided to take an unexpected nap about the same time the mail came. So for the first time in a long time I propped my feet up to do absolutely nothing but start my book that happened to come. I am so intrigued by this book already!
.:. You are the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with, that’s in terms of personal, financial, emotional and spiritual gains.⁣ .⁣ So like these 2 above, find the ones that nourish your growth. If you feel you’re outgrowing others, then #1 , check your ego, and #2 check your crowd. ⁣ .⁣ Truth is I found the general MOM crowd to be really negative. There! I finally publicly said it.

I think I’ve realized that January tends to be a slower reading month for me. The flurry of the holiday season is over (but work of cleaning up and mental recovery is still waiting - not to mention catching up on sleep, ideally); the weather here is cold, cloudy, and dreary; and I end up thinking over or processing the past year, planning and praying for the next, more readily than reaching for a book. . And you know what? I‘ve come to recognize that’s totally okay. Not every season is one of voracious or deep or broad reading; preparing the ground or letting it rest is just as important as growing the plants, to import a metaphor (which ironically I’ve only read about, as I live in a desert with a black thumb 😉). ❤️ 🌷🦔🌷🦔🌷🦔🌷🦔🌷🦔🌷🦔 #bookstagram #readersofig #bookishseasons #booklove #bookstack #bookpages #momswhoread #motherculture #hedgietiggywinkle
Until November by Aurora Rose Reynolds Instalove at its finest. *~*~*~* 𝕊𝕥𝕠𝕣𝕪𝕝𝕚𝕟𝕖: After she was attacked, November moves away from NYC (and her cruel mother) to live with her dad in rural TN. Unfortunately, it seems that trouble has followed her. Can overbearing (but oh-so-sexy) local, Asher, protect her from those who would hurt her? Or will he leave her heart battered and bruised? *~*~*~* 𝕊𝕖𝕩 𝕊𝕔𝕖𝕟𝕖𝕤: 🔥🔥🔥🔥/5. Despite the instalove factor, it takes a little bit to set up the relationship. The hot stuff starts taking place at about 38% in. And let me tell you, Asher knows how to talk 👏🏻the 👏🏻talk. I’m a fan. *~*~*~* 【$】: Freeeeeeee on KU. If you’re into jealous/possessive males then this is definitely up your alley. Asher is almost over the top at times, but I can see where it would be a turn on (a kink, if you will).

⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 This was a second chance historical romance. The HEA was bittersweet to me because the mistakes they both made - and the time they wasted kind of bummed me out. At least it all works out!! #minibookreview #momswhoread #justfinishedreading #bookstagram #goodreads #readaholic #kindlepaperwhite
Monday goals. I usually like to kick off the week with some productive minutiae, and I also like to give my Monday margin. I think that I’ve successfully struck that balance today! 📚 Side note: bright, textured neutrals are giving me life this January. Are you affected by your surroundings? I’m highly affected by aesthetics, and need my spaces to be pretty (and always primed for reading!) #mywholehome
And while I'm recommending things you should do... Go pick up this book. So friggin good. Especially if you have a house full of littles and what seems like unending chaos.
First, I finally found the #goldenhour to take shots in front of my shelf in its news spot! Second, THIS BOOK. If you didn’t already know I have a true love for inspiring #nonfictionreads , now you do. I’m wrapping up this one today and simply LOVE IT 🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌 Now...to pick my one first habit! #thepowerofhabit
Today’s naptime reading. Soaking in whatever quiet afternoons I get before I make the leap back into working outside of our house. 💕 also, everyone should read “Becoming” by Michelle Obama. Don’t care about your political affiliations.

I have to be honest... It snowed this weekend and was so cold that I just wanted to hibernate in my nice warm house! My husband, who doesn't mind the cold as much, took our son out to have some Fun.⁣ ⁣ One day last week before the snow and cold hit, my son and I spent a couple hours at Barnes & Nobles. We had dinner there and sat reading and talking. It was the highlight of my week! I'm not going to lie, there are times I miss the little boy stage, but there are other times (like at the bookstore), that I stop and think "Wow! This stage is pretty awesome too"! What is the thing you love about your kids at this stage they are in?

A tote I made. Wanting to start an online shop of some sort... mostly bookish items, but with some extras thrown in for fun #HP #HarryPotter #LunaLovegood #TorisTinkerings #HandmadeGoods #MomsWhoRead #CraftyMama
Obsessed! No it’s not a classic but sometimes you just need a good sci-fi-ish story with some naughty bits thrown in #karenmariemoning #fevernovel #momswhoread #bookworm #justonemorepage Thanks @krysta_murray for the suggestion 🖤
🛒Have you checked out my Etsy shop yet? . 🔖It has handmade paper bookmarks and gift tags. I like to describe my bookmarks as abstract watercolor with a personal touch. Some are funny, some are inspirational, while others are simple and fun. Each bookmark is made individually making every single one unique. I love to use vibrant colors. I enjoy playing with different combos. Each bookmark comes in a clear protective sleeve allowing you the option of leaving it on for protection or taking it out if you prefer the paper feel. Most bookmarks come with the option of having twine at the top or without. Twine helps you to find your last reading spot easier and faster typically. . 🏷The gift tags come with a couple bookish options. Some come with book page hearts or book page trees. They can be folded to be 3D which is soooo cool and very unique. . 📖I really enjoy working on custom orders. So please feel free to reach out here or on Etsy if you have an idea for a bookmark. I’d love to work together. 💝
🌟 Eleanor Oliphant is Completely fine | Book Review 🌟⁣ ⁣ I heard a lot of good things about this book, and it isn’t one I’d normally choose to read, but I decided to give it a try. ⁣ ⁣ Overall, I thought it was good. It seemed a little bit boring at first, and I found myself wishing something more exciting would happen. However, when I started getting towards the middle I found myself more engrossed and wanting to keep reading. There were a lot of parts that made me laugh, and I really enjoyed the characters. ⁣ ⁣ The book is about Eleanor, a woman in her upper twenties who had a traumatic childhood. She is socially awkward and doesn’t have any friends or family, however she thinks she is completely fine. She has a scarred face and a troubled past, but she struggles to remember what actually happened. Two things simultaneously happen throughout the book. 1. She develops a crush on a musician and thinks they are destined to be together, which leads her to do some crazy things. 2. She witnessed a man collapse in the street while walking with her coworker, Raymond, which leads them to spending more time together. These two things ultimately lead Eleanor to finally realizing she is not “completely fine”, and to discovering what has really happened in her life. ⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ # books #book #thetattooistofauschwitz #bookclub #2019books #goodreads #momswhoread #reading #readingchallenge #readthisbook #bookclubofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstore #bookobsessed #inspirational #inspirationalbooks #mybooks #readinglife #bookworm #avidreader #bookish #bookblogger #cozyreads

Convincing the girls that peanut butter on celery is dessert...success! 🧡
What is your favorite type of soup? 🥘 . It’s a cold dreary day here. I already have tacos planned for dinner tonight, but I just can’t stop thinking about warm and cozy soups. Maybe I just need to make taco soup. 🤤🌮🥘 . We’ve got some friends coming over today to see the new baby AND company for dinner tonight. It’s been a mad dash to get the house clean so that we don’t look like we’re in over our heads over here. It’s amazing how quickly the baby and toddler can take over the whole house! So, no reading today, unless I can sneak a chapter or two in before bedtime. 😅 . Have you read any books by Cassandra Clare? Do you have a favorite? 📖 . . . . #bookaholic #bookstagramfeatures #goodreads #bibliophiles #bookoftheday #ilovebooks #booklovers #bookworm #bookgeek #amreading #booknerd #instabook #cassandraclare #booklife #booksbooksbooks #bookstagram #yareads #yalit #tbr #yafantasy #igbooks #epicreads #bookstoread #reading #readingteacher #bookish #fiction #bookaddict #momswhoread #readersofinstagram
Palm trees and turquoise seas make a killer reading spot. But I still don’t understand how the brides on that beach (there were several over a few days) managed to avoid heatstroke, sunburn and melting away in the tropical heat... 🌴🌴🌴 There There by Tommy Orange felt like taking a train journey with all the stops but at each stop a new person hops on and tells their story. Sometimes they hop off but hop back on again. Some of the stories are very dark and harder to handle (but they were also funny and clever). They all felt very real. Tommy has also woven in historical information about the genocide of a nation while maintaining 12 different characters voices and a fast burn to the end. Great for me as an Australian who knows more about Indigenous Australians than Native Americans. #therethere #tommyorange #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #diversebooks #igreads #summerreads #booksbooksbooks #booknookstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookme #bibliophile #booksoutside #booksatthebeach #readingspot #palmcove #queensland #beachparadise #mumswhoread #momswhoread
👉🏻 How do you feel about rainbow shelves? How often do you move your books around? . . I’ve been thinking about going rainbow with one wall of my shelves. I had all my books rainbow in my old house, but I hated separating my favorite series. I’m thinking about having a bookcase on the other wall for favorites so I can keep them together, but for the rest go rainbow. 😬 I’m torn because I like having my fantasy/contemporary sorted, but I drool over rainbow shelfies, so 🤷🏻‍♀️. Help meeee! . . This calls for a vote! 🥳 - go rainbow! 😒 - leave your shelves alone! . . . . #booktoday #bookpile #bookstack #funkophotoaday #funkoaddict #funkopop #funko #booklove #bookphoto #bookstagram #bookworm #beautifulbooks #instabooks #booknookstagram #ilovebooks #readmore #reader #igreads #igbooks #libraryofbookstagram #library #bookajolic #bookporn #bookphotography #momswhoread #bookish #booknerdigans #bookgeek #bibliophile
