We Shouldn’t Release date January 21, 2019 A Standalone Contemporary Romance #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland Coming January 21st, 2019! I love cover model @lucas.bloms on this cover. Wow! Bennett Fox walked into my life on one hell of a crappy Monday morning. I was late for the first day at my new job—a job I’d now have to compete for even though I’d already worked 𝑒𝑖𝑔ℎ𝑡 𝑦𝑒𝑎𝑟𝑠 to earn it, because of an unexpected merger. While I lugged my belongings up to my new office, a meter maid wrote me a parking summons. She’d ticketed a long line of cars—except for the Audi parked in front of me, which happened to be the same make and model as mine. Annoyed, I decided to 𝑟𝑒𝑔𝑖𝑓𝑡 my ticket to the car that had evaded a fine. Chances were, the owner would pay it and be none the wiser. Except, I 𝑎𝑐𝑐𝑖𝑑𝑒𝑛𝑡𝑎𝑙𝑙𝑦 broke the windshield wiper while slipping the ticket onto the car’s window. Seriously, my day couldn’t get any worse. Things started to perk up when I ran into a gorgeous man in the elevator. We had one of those brief moments that only happened in movies. You know the deal…your body lights up, fireworks go off, and the air around you crackles with electricity. His heated stare left me flush when I stepped off the elevator. Maybe things here wouldn’t be so bad after all. 𝑂𝑟 𝑠𝑜 𝐼 𝑡ℎ𝑜𝑢𝑔ℎ𝑡. Until I walked into my new boss’s office and met my competition. The gorgeous man from the elevator was now my nemesis. His heated stare wasn’t because of any mutual attraction. It was because he’d saw me vandalize his car. And now he couldn’t wait to annihilate his rival. There’s a fine line between love and hate—and we shouldn’t cross it. 𝑊𝑒 𝑠ℎ𝑜𝑢𝑙𝑑𝑛’𝑡 —but straddling that line could be so much fun.

#Repost @literarymom (@get_repost ) ・・・ “For love, all love of other sights controls, And makes one little room an everywhere.” ~John Donne * * I still remember the room becoming very small as we danced in front of so many family and friends during our reception. I still feel like we’re the only ones in a crowded place sometimes, and then I hear the baby. 😂Today marks my five year wedding anniversary with my husband, and according to tradition, we are no longer “newlyweds!” Here’s to another milestone in the books, and growing in love’s quiet moments (and more poetry from Donne—always more poetry from Donne). #metaphysicalpoetry #johndonne #momswhoread #poetry #indianwedding #thaiwedding #buddhistwedding #fusionwedding #celebratelove #bigmoments #littlemoments

"We can’t always win and we can’t always be happy. But the one thing that we can always do is try." - The Keeper Of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan ⭐⭐.5
Just this weekend I decided to do a quick little photo shoot in my marvel pants, in the giant movie room, while watching a marvel movie. . To get home and receive news of Stan Lee’s passing left me saddened, but grateful for all the wonderful characters he’s helped bring to our lives. Marvel was there for me when I needed something to say dream about, something to write about and inspire costumes. . RIP Stan. You will be missed.
It’s possible that I’ve read one too many memoirs lately ☺️ but this one took me a bit longer to work through than other recent ones. It was really, really good though. Heartbreaking, hope-filled, inspiring, and made me want to do something about the issues the author brings up 🤔 . . Vance was raised in tumultuous circumstances in a deeply poor area of Ohio. His mom was a drug-addict who had a string of men in and out of their house...and if it weren’t for J.D.’s grandparents (particularly his Mamaw), he would’ve been swept up into the foster care system. What we learn as the book continues is that his situation is fairly common in this part of the country. He gently educates us on the social, regional, and class issues facing this “hillbilly” culture. Vance followed a path of upward mobility when he joined the Marine Corps, graduated from Ohio State and then continued on to Yale Law School. His story is remarkable and he truly seems like a humble, normal, everyday guy. Highly recommend this book! . . #read #reader #readersofinstagram #readeveryday #readeverywhere #readeverything #readerlife #readingislife #book #bookstagram #booksarelife #booklife #bookworm #booklover #bookaddict #bookaddiction #bookrecommendations #bookreview #memoir #bibliophile #momswhoread #momreading #learneveryday #themoreyouread

Wytches by Scott Snyder is a graphic novel that takes place in the remote town of Litchfield, NH . . Witches aren't just boiling cauldrons and magical spells, here they are far more evil and far creepier than you could imagine and they are watching...and hungry. . . #laundrypilesandreviews 🖤🖤🖤/5 . . The basis of this story is your typical horror trope: new family in town, moves to a house in the woods, father is a recovering alcoholic, teenage daughter with a troubled past - it wasn't executed very well to make it interesting to read. I also didn't completely love the artwork. The random splotches of color over the otherwise very creepy illustrations, were distracting. . . I did enjoy, however, the dark interpretation of witches and the explanation later from the author as to where he got his inspiration. . . Overall this was a 'meh' read for me.

So here’s the DAY ONE TIP: download Checkout 51 in your App Store and start using IMMEDIATELY🤩 just scan your store receipts and get 💵back from just buying the usual 🍪🍩🍼🥪🥨🍞...super easy!

Yes that’s my kitchen it’s also my gym at 5am. It’s the only place I can jump around and make noise in my apartment without waking anyone up. Part of me resisted getting up before everyone so I wouldn’t have to work out in the kitchen using my laptop. It’s not the most comfortable place to workout and I could have let that effect my dedication. The truth is if you want it bad enough you will find a way to get it done. I’m lucky I don’t have to get up earlier and leave the house to get my workout in. I’m lucky that I can do it all from home. Even if it is at 5am in my kitchen. #makeitwork
Its not everyday your young man turns eleven, now is it? xx Hard to believe this gorgeous creature has existed for over a decade now. It feels like I blinked and he grew up. He is our BFG, my favorite reading buddy and fellow Potter nerd and the giver of the best bear hugs and belly laughs. You are so so so loved. Happy birthday, Oliver James! <3 Swipe over for a funny outtake. xx
Day 2. Funny thing...I keep telling myself, "Once I get into a workout routine and know I won't quit I will be able to focus more on my nutrition"... . . EXCUSES! Seriously, I have been working out almost daily for the last four and a half years, it's not going anywhere!! The real issue is that, for me, working out is WAY easier than eating healthy. . . Last winter I started eating only one sweet treat a week. In the past couple of months I have quit that and sweets have crept back in...ice cream and cookies... . . So, I am going to refocus. Take a break from the sweets and make sure I am getting my veggies at every meal! . . What do you need to refocus on? I am part of a group of people who motivate and encourage each other through this process. Let me know if you want to join! Let's make changes!! 🧡 . . Double tap if you know how this feels!!
If we aren’t striving to become our BEST self everyday... ...how can we further impact others? Feels great to be {back} in my early morning groove! ☀️ Working out is one way of how I work on ME. 💪🏻 It builds confidence, is a great outlet to unplug, clear the conscience + further focus strengthening my mind + body. Push yourself to the limit! Wake up with PASSION in your heart, keep moving forward towards becoming a better YOU, and refuse to fail! Make working on YOU a priority so that you can fulfill your purpose of inspiring others. 👊🏻 How are you working to become your best YOU? . . . #turnthepage #gracenotperfection #readingwithcoffee #newmonthnewgoals newmonthnewstart #imperfectmom #choosingjoy #momswhoread #booksandcoffee #newchapterinlife #choascoordinator #ibsdiet #justrollwithit #weightlossstruggles #winemom #busyworkingmom #newnormal #obesetofit #simplisticliving #collegemom #slowdownandenjoylife #bankermom #howtogetfit #edrecovery

I’m a sucker for a book that hooks me from page ONE, sentence ONE. . In fact, I imagine all authors spend a great deal of time attempting to formulate that first, perfect sentence. (I could be totally wrong, but this is one of the weird things, as a reader, I’ve always pondered.) . #unravelingoliver by @liznugentwriter is a psychological thriller, and true to the name I was fascinated with how the author unravels the nature of the main character from ideal to psychopath. I loved the different perspectives, and loved the ending. I’ll take a subtle, shocking twist over some of the unrealistic explosive twists out there these days. And I wasn’t even expecting a twist! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ . . . #bookstagram #whatimreading #audible #readersofinstagram #booksandcoffee #momswhoread #bookclub #bookclubofinstagram
7 FOLD, BABY!! . Let me explain....my back left tire exploded today while driving with my two boys in the car...got it towed to the tire shop to realize all 4 tires need to be replaced...my {almost} 4 year old had some crazy demon come over him while he kicked and screamed and hit me...dishes are piled up....laundry is piled up...house is a mess....I’m a mess...and there’s a whole list of other trials going on behind the scenes that are not social media sharing worthy... . And it’s in these moments where @cpousima33 and I look at each other and start getting EXCITED! 🤯 You see....the Lord promises us 7 fold! When times are tough, it’s a sign that something even GREATER is right around the corner...BUT ONLY if you keep pushing forward! Would you give up in the last 10 seconds of a game when you’re down by 1? NO! That is when you PUSH THE HARDEST. . But I haven’t always had this mentality...it’s taken years of personal development and greater associations to even be ABLE to see the positive in these situations. Of course I’m not perfect, and definitely have my pity parties, but I will say, one of the best things that I ever did for myself was fill my mind with higher level thinking...and one of those ways is through reading personal development. . SO! I’ve decided to put together a BOOK CLUB! 🤓📚 it’s completely free...we’ll start December 1st, and we’ll pick a new book to read {or listen to on audio 😉} each month. We’ll have weekly check-Ins through zoom {free video conference app} and a party 🎉 at the end! You can live anywhere to participate! 😉 It’s going to help us level up and have a ton of fun while doing so! . SO WHO’S IN?? Drop your favorite emoji below if you are! 😘 . . . #bookclub #ocmoms #momoftwoboys #bookofthemonth #personaldevelopmentjunkie #momswhoread #northoc

I’ve been totally geeking out over this book the past two days. Obvious by the title, it’s all about habits...why we do what we do. Heavy in brain and psychological research (which I LOVE), the writer explores how habits are actually formed, how we can change them, and how businesses leverage consumer habits to make money (the chapter about how Target knows what we want before we do 😳). He explores so many interesting people like Michael Phelps, Howard Schultz, Martin Luther King Jr., Tony Dungy, and Rick Warren, and how habits effected their life and success. I highly recommend this book if you have any interest in psychology, addiction, habits in relation to business or forming habits in your personal life. It was SO good! . #read #reader #reading #readersofinstagram #readersareleaders #readingislife #readermom #readerlife #bookstagram #book #fallreading #fallreads #booksarelife #booklife #booknerd #bookworm #bookaddict #bookaddicted #bookaddiction #bookrecommendations #bookreview #psychologicalbook #businessbook #momswhoread #readermom #momreader #instabook
I used to be very intentional about everybody having separate quiet time. Then when Anna moved into her own room, we had to shift things around a bit and Sam and Kate started having quiet time together in the playroom. Then we had to drop Henry’s nap in order to make bedtime less of a nightmare and after a little while it just became easier to let him stay downstairs too, rather than risk him falling asleep during quiet time upstairs. For the most part, the three big kids having “quiet” time together works just fine. They play in the playroom with the door closed, so I still get my time to breathe, and they often use the opportunity of some baby-free time to spread out a bit with Playmobil or LEGO. But sometimes, especially with Sam or Kate, I can tell they need some time to decompress away from their siblings. For Sam that usually means building legos upstairs alone for a bit, but for Kate that usually means sitting and reading with me on the couch. She’s not one to be still AND quiet. If she’s quiet, she’s moving and if she’s still, she’s talking loudly. Then once in a blue moon she just sits here quietly with me and it’s like I’m watching her whole body reset and recharge itself. She’s something else, our Kate. I feel like I’m still learning how to do life with her every single day ❤️ • • • • • • • #afternoonthoughts #homeschooling #quiettime #reading #kidswhoread #momswhoread #momsanddaughters
Quiet time. Self care time. Devotions. A time out. . Call it whatever you want, it's a game changer for my day. I don't get my morning quiet time every day, but I fight for it as much as I can. . There's always going to be something else pulling for your attention. Always. Always. Life, it doesn't stop. Maybe you have small children waking you up at the crack of dawn. Or an alarm clock that goes off super early for your job. And the day goes on and there just. isn't. any. time. . I urge you to find ways to carve out the time to get quiet with yourself. That intentional time, even if it's 10 minutes, to rest your mind and reflect. Put away your phone. Dust off that bible if that's your thing, pull out a journal and write down the things you're grateful for or the things stirring in your heart. Consider meditating for 10 minutes. . The list can wait. It's called putting on your own oxygen mask first. Refilling YOUR cup first. Recharging. I promise you, you'll feel lighter afterward. . How do you have quiet time? Do you have a daily time set aside to "time out" and reflect?
Believe it not, I have experienced this before. Someone not wanting to share their "trade secrets"...🙄

Our most recent #readaloud - I had no idea that the Rise of the Guardians movie was inspired by a series of books until I stumbled upon Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King at a library. It is delightful! Such a classic fairytale feel with all the wonder and magic of childhood and the danger and adventure that keeps you hooked on the story. Bonus- it has wonderful illustrations throughout so it's a good one for younger kids transitioning into chapter books but, it is still fun and fast paced for those older kids that have been there, done that.
. ✨SELF CARE MONDAY✨ . Start your day and mind right With some gratitude journal. When I first started doing this I feel a little silly, but now I know it’s so therapeutic to recognize all that I have and really ground myself for the day. I find that if I start my day to abruptly and without grounding practice I’m very frazzled and impatient. . This one took me 5 minutes. 5 minutes to reflect on what I am truly grateful for in this moment and start my day out on the right foot. I use the Five-Minuet Journal but you don’t need this one to get started, all you need is a pen and paper to get started. . What are you grateful for?💖
“We have all we need to be successful—and it’s found in the Word of God, in the examples of the beautiful women we can call sisters. Regardless of their mistakes, they kept going. Regardless of their trials and circumstances, they did it. They raised their children and found themselves. They sacrificed and showed them their faith. They did it. And so are you doing it. God bless moms, a child’s first love and first example of unconditional love. Our jobs are not in vain. Our calling is not a mistake. We are not alone. God hears and God sees a mother’s heart. Sit back and watch God surprise you, Mommy!” Amazing book “successful moms of the bible” by Katara Washington Patton ...well written and easy to read and follow. A great starting book for a mom looking for encouragement through the word and moms of the bible. 😘😘🙋‍♀️ #bookreview #successful #successfulmoms #successfulmomsofthebible #momswhoread #literacy #encouragement #faith #christianmom #momlife #mommyblogger #momblogger #atwork #slowday #read #love #godisgood #women #womenofthebible #biblicalliteracy

Today I started back at Day 1! . . Why am I starting an 80 Day program right before the holidays?? . . For many years I have said, "the holidays are really bad for me". Meaning, "I overeat and sit around during the holidays". Last year I joined a Maintain, Don't Gain challenge and LOST weight during the holidays! The feeling of accomplishment I get when I reach a goal is awesome but if it happens during the holidays it is even better! . . This is just my way of taking back a little more control and putting away my lame excuses! . . 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡
Walk away, take some deep breaths, focus on the positive. Someone else’s bad attitude/mood/situation does not have to dictate yours. 💕#empath #empathproblems

I'm so glad I finally got around to reading this novel - it will be one of my most memorable reads this year! I briefly thought Eleanor's voice might become irritating; I wondered if Honeyman was labouring the point that she is incredibly articulate but socially awkward and prudish. But it didn't take long to warm to her unfiltered observations and literal approach to everything. Anecdotes like her visit to Julie's Beauty Basket to get her bikini wax had me chuckling out loud. It soon becomes clear Eleanor is struggling to repress a traumatic past which has shaped the lonely life she has been living. In fact, it is only when Eleanor and her colleague Raymond rescue an elderly man, Sammy, and she is shown kindness, warmth and acceptance by them and their families, that she begins to really live rather than merely exist. Eleanor's reliance on vodka to forget the past and get through another lonely weekend and her longing for human contact (the only times she has been physically touched recently were when the hairdresser gave her a glorious scalp massage and during her flu jab last winter) remind us how easy it can be for people of any age to be desperately lonely. Eleanor falls in love with the idea of a person, becoming fixated on a local musician she has never met. We are rooting for her to recognise the potential for real love with gentle, patient Raymond, one of the most convincing good guys I've encountered in a novel. But ultimately this feels like a story about friendship and creating meaningful connections with people - any hints at a developing romance are just a bonus really. We cringe with a smile at Eleanor's smart, blunt observations and manners. Personally, I'm pretty sure my vocabulary was enriched by this novel! A touching, funny book that encourages a little bit more kindness from all of us. * Which books made you really invest in a character or laugh out loud? #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #eleanoroliphant #bookreview #review #bookclub #bookclubofinstagram #bookstagram #bookaddict #novel #bibliophile #centralpark #fallnyc #newyork #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #bookobsessed #momswhoread #autumnreads

I made this mermaid bookmark with my daughters in mind. I wanted them to know it's okay to make waves in life. I think of the second pic quote (scroll to see) quite often actually. It's one of my absolute favorites. This bookmark shown comes in both adult and child size. They make great stocking stuffers! Free US standard shipping and each order comes wrapped. . . . . . . . . . #girlswhoread #bookstagram #booksta #kidbookstagram #bookstagrammer #booktube #bookish #bookishfeatures #bookishfeature #bookswag #kidgift #stockingstuffer #kidreads #childrenreading #momswhoread #readingwithkids #letsreadtogether #bookworm #booknerd #bookmark #bookmarksforsale #bookmarks #bookshop #mermaid #mermaidlife #beamermaid #letsbemermaids #makingwaves #sundaymotivation #giftforkids
