This was a book that I preordered knowing it would be the perfect gift to leave behind in my two schools when I retired and I was not disappointed.  This is a book that explores and connects the joy of the written word and the talents of illustrators. This story allows the reader to find a place just right for them to enjoy the rich words of @kwamealexander and the incredible art of @melissasweetillustrator The text and illustrations compliment one another beautifully and this will be a great book to kick start the year. I know it will be a book that readers will enjoy and discover something new with each reading. A must have for libraries and classrooms.

Ever so often, I leave war torn Europe to read something fun. I loved @jennycolganbooks “The Bookshop on the Corner”, so naturally I wanted to read “The Bookshop on the Shore”. I was not disappointed. While some of the characters from “The Bookshop on the Corner” appeared in this book, it is a completely different story including the very same book van, a massive estate on Loch Ness and three unruly children. It was a fun read, but ended too quickly. #read #book #jennycolgan #whatimreading #bibliophile #bookworm #read #beachgrlsbookshelf #beachgrlreads #kindle

I’m already feeling relaxed after a few days in Port Douglas 🌴🥰 I spent yesterday snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef - didn’t find Nemo but saw lots of other fish 🐟🐠🐡 I’m reading the Whisper Network but my brain has gone into holiday mode so I might switch it out for a lighter read 🤔

BOOK REVIEW ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
.
I started Next Year in Havana last month but misplaced it when I was only a few chapters in (turns out it was hiding between my bed and wall). I picked it back up last week and flew through- it was absolutely amazing! Cleeton did such a fantastic job of mixing history and fiction. The dual narratives of Elisa (grandmother) and Marisol (granddaughter) talk about forbidden love and Cuba past and present. I can’t wait to read book number 2, When We Left Cuba. 📚

What’s your favorite way to celebrate your birthday? .

Today I took my little one to the aquarium with some of my siblings and my nephew. Then my husband spoiled me with flowers, chocolate, a cake, and homemade dinner. Tomorrow we’re going out to eat and seeing the new Spider-Man movie. It’s a great start to the last year of my 20’s! 🙈 .

If you’ve seen me IRL in the last month just keep on scrolling because you’ve already noticed this book is almost all I talk about. It’s big, (Mine is covered in highlighter and sweat and coming apart...bc I read a lot in the sauna and it melts my books), but it is SO good. I swear.  People I have never even heard of have said things that have made me think differently about so many things. Makes me realize how many people we can learn from. @timferriss #whatimreading #currentlyreading

I’ve been tearing through Sarah Dessen books for over a decade. Love how she always tackles the tough stuff—addiction, non-traditional families, anxiety. Another classic Dessen treasure 💜

Book 50 of 2019// My goal for this year was 60 books so I’m super excited to already be at 50 in July. Last year, I read 60 (goal was 50) which was beyond any amount I had read for years. I decided to try and do it again so I’m pumped that I’ll pass 60 and then some. 
As for this book...it was another super hyped book on IG. It’s a romance which I usually love. Fix Her Up was just okay for me. I wavered between 3 and 4 stars for my Goodreads review and went with 4 stars in the end. This one is steamy so if that’s not your thing, stay far away. My big problem was that I wasn’t a huge fan of Travis, the male half of the romance. So then I kind of lost interest in what happened with their romance. I know plenty of people on IG have loved this book so I’m in the minority but we all have different taste. It was a super quick read for me.

Bandit loves it when I can't sleep- means cuddle times! Today's book is #thenanny by #gillymacmillan. My first book by this author so hoping it's as good as the blurb sounds! #bookworm #bookstagram #books #whatimreading #readingcompany #catsandbooks #latenight #earlymorning

I loved this one! Parallel characters/chapters with distinct voices (🙌🏼), quirky and charming, all the wit and warmth of the British, strong supporting characters (why are they so rare?), and a perfectly squeal-worthy ending. // ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️— really liked it! #radreadswomenandpoc

I’m not very far into this yet so I don’t have much of an opinion. I am eagerly awaiting the creepy factor that everyone has been talking about. I like how the narrator definitely feels like a teen as she tells the story. I’m looking forward to seeing where this one goes!

Evvie Drake Starts Over by Linda Holmes 
This is the third book I’ve read in the last month that features a basketball player, I don’t know what that means but I thought that was an interesting trend. I really enjoyed this story. I connected with the story and the characters pretty quickly and the novel flew by. I didn’t want to stop listening to it. Even though I don’t think I will remember much of it a year from now, I will remember how it made me feel and smile again. If you’d like an enjoyable and sweet summer read, you can’t go wrong with this story. (⭐⭐⭐🌠) ⚾🧢🧳💙📚🎨🖌️

I’ve really limited myself on screen time this summer leaving more time to read actual books! Imagine that! 😂....this one is so good! I recommend it for parents who are homeschooling AND for parents who have children in private/public school! I read a lot of books where my toes are stepped on. (part of the reason why I read them) ...but this one simply encouraged and inspired! I’ve always tried to make learning an “enchanting” experience and this book spoke to me and said ....”Mama, you were doing the right thing all these years.” ...even if I wasn’t the most organized. ...even if I wasn’t the best housekeeper, ...even if I didn’t finish the curriculum, ...even when I felt guilt for the above plus many more things! I still {and will continue} to offer enchantment in our home! READ this book to see what I mean! 💕💕💕💕 #thebravelearner #screenfreesummer #2019Reads #bookstagram #whatimreading @juliebravewriter

READING ADVISORY: Armistead Maupin’s memoir will bring chills and scattered laughter.  It’s highly recommended to stay indoors until the entire book has come to its satisfying conclusion, while keeping an eye out for the interview with Neil Gaiman at the end.  Chance of tears and a deepening understanding of the LGBTQIA+ community with scattered stories about Tales of the City.

I started this one today and may or may not have told someone “just a minute” when it was time for my appointment and I wanted to finish the chapter. I did say please...

I was so excited to see this make the @booksparks list because it seemed like the perfect summer read. So far, it is. 🥃

The Island of Doctor Moreau. H. G. Wells. 🌴👨🏼‍🔬
Edward Prendick is “luckily” rescued by a young doctor, after he is shipwrecked. He is taken to an island where he meets Doctor Moreau, a name that seems strangely familiar. A tense struggle to survive ensues as Prendick meets the other inhabitants of the island. 
A classic that I’d been meaning to read for some time. The problem I have with some older books is the language. I don’t mean thou and yonder, I mean the way that people are described in racial terms. I appreciate they are of their time, but it impacts the way I feel about the story, particularly as a person of colour. 📕📗📘📙📕📗📘📙
One item on my “40 Before I’m 40” list is to read a literary canon. After a disappointing search for a solid must-read list, I decided to ask my family and friends to recommend up to 3 books to add to my list of 100. A great way to learn something new about the people in your life. 📖📚

Theme of Q2 books I read was ‘Reading Through My Feelings’ or ‘Self-help & Star Wars’. Sometimes books are the best way to cope through things, understand who you are, discover the tools to live authentically (or honestly just live in this freakin world), and continue to find hope. 💫🙏🏽📚
- Facing Codependence by Pia Mellody, recommended by my therapist
- Weird in a World That’s Not by @jennromolini, recommended by @bforristall
- Brave, Not Perfect by @reshmasaujani, sent to me by @penguinrandomhouse - Overcoming Anxiety and Depression was an airport terminal purchase in the throes of an anxiety spiral 🤷🏻‍♀️
- Rebel Rising by @bethrevis was a find at McNally Jackson books! And I think one of the most beautiful book covers I’ve ever seen. Also, hello Jyn Erso backstory. Truly a hero. 🌑✨
- First We Make the Beast Beautiful, A New Journey Through Anxiety by @_sarahwilson_, loaned to me by my very dear friend @leighalcott .

The best kind of summer night. Spotify country music playing, laying in the sunshine on the deck, and a great summer read. My first by Beatriz Williams and I’m loving it so far! What are you reading this week? . . . . . . . . #currentread #currentbook #whatimreading #currentreads #bookpost #bookpic #summerreading #summerreads #summernights #spiveys📚club #goodreads #bookofthemonth #bookstagram #bookish #bibliophile #booklover #bookobsessed #readingobsessed #librarybook #ahundredsummers #beatrizwilliams #historicalfiction

It’s Monday but I’m still day dreaming about the weekend and reading by the pool. I’ve been reading Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey which and it’s just starting to get steamy, which I am not minding at all. I’ve been getting into romance more and enjoying the heck of them. I recently had a very distinct, long-forgotten memory of trying to sneak-read my mom’s romance novels when I was younger. #alwaysreading 🤷🏻‍♀️😊

What are some of your modern romance recs?

People will always tell you that the material things given to you hold no value over how your heart feels. But sometimes possessions hold worth, not for the value but for the memories. The small stuffed bear your grandfather gave you before he passed, the necklace left by your mother the day she walked out, the sweater your old love left behind. All things have memories, stories of where they have come from, and they all affect the heart. ⠀

✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨⠀
I have this sweater, well it’s more a cardigan.⠀
⠀
When I look at it I think about the last day I saw my dad, saying goodbye to him in the hospital. It absorbed many tears and was there with my last hug goodbye.⠀
⠀
It’s just a sweater, and maybe I should do something with it. I won’t wear it again, but I also won’t throw it away.⠀
⠀
So when I read this poem from @CourtneyPeppernell Pillow Thoughts II I couldn’t help but relate with how much a cardigan could affect my heart. ⠀

It is no secret that I am a fan of Riley Sager. From his first book that I received in a #bookofthemonth box, to his currently release (also #botm), I’ve enjoyed these thrillers every step of the way. I finished Lock Every Door a couple days ago, and it is my favorite one yet! In typical Sager fashion, I thought I guessed the end, only to be completely wrong. The twists in this book had me more confused and frantic than if I was running around the Bartholomew hallways in a fire. The chapters were short and it is fast paced that I flew through the pages. To me, his books just keep getting better and better. .

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Reading: Factfulness by Hans Rosling ⠀

"I was drawn to the book Factfulness when I saw it appear on Bill Gates’ list of recommended reads. While most people describe the world as getting worse in a variety of ways, the author uses facts and figures (no wonder I like it) to explain, as the subtitle says, “Ten reasons we’re wrong about the world and why things are better than you think.” Be prepared, this book will challenge you to think about the world in new ways!" @groenewaldjeff .⠀

😭😭 this book is already so heart-wrenching. I tend to really enjoy books that look at two alternate timelines, at how the choices we make effect us, so I’m excited to see how it’s done in the second half of this one

Reseña: CONEJO BLANCO - LOBO ROJO.
Buenas tardes gente hermosa, les quiero contar un poquito sobre esta belleza de libro que termine de leer justo anoche y quedé impactada. 
Primero que nada deben saber que es una historia construida con muchísimo detalle, se nota que el autor ha pensado cada capítulo, cada palabra en base a una ficción extraordinaria, pero con muchísimo contenido de realidad.
Adoré al protagonista Peter, creo que es la persona con ansiedad más graciosa, irónica e inigualablemente miedosa que podría existir. Sin dudas disfruté de sus ocurrencias, bromas y situaciones engorrosas, porque a pesar de ser un matemático inigualable, con una mente brillante y capacidad de calcular cifras descomunales, sigue siendo un adolescente, con deseos, motivaciones y sueños.
La trama es vertiginosa, pasa desde situaciones de la vida cotidiana de una persona que convive con la ansiedad y el miedo constante, pero a la vez estamos acompañándo a Peter en su búsqueda de la verdad, escapando de espías que quieren atraparlo y descubriendo un lado oculto y macabro de su hermana mellizas Bel.
Seremos testigos de ecuaciones, teoremas, cálculos que son sorprendentes. Veremos cómo Peter con su mente tan ágil, tan vivaz y capaz de resolver situaciones impensadas, nos llevará a aprender de un mundo matemático y cómo es que funcionan muchas cosas de nuestra vida que desconocemos.
En la lucha por descubrir cuáles son sus miedos y qué los causa, Petey descubrirá que la vida que creía tener es una mentira, que las personas en las que podía confiar son una farsa y las certezas que tenía son descartadas. Sólo tendrá seguridad de que su Axioma es lo único cierto, la única que lo protegerá de todo lo que busca dañarlo.
No puedo dejar de decirles lo hermoso que es este libro. Lo perfectamente escrito que está y lo mucho que disfruté de su lectura. Está sin duda en el TOP 1 del año, porque contiene todo lo que una buena historia tiene que tener y por sobre todo te atrapa, te enseña y te mantiene pegado a sus páginas.

"A house without books is like a room without windows." 🏡

Saw the cutest looking house today and had to snap a picture of it. I walk by this house all the time but today was the first day I really saw it. Sometimes life is so busy we don't stop to notice what's around us - I'm trying to slow down a little more and be more mindful of my surroundings. You never know what you'll find! 👀

I hope everyone had a great Monday!

The kids and I just checked out a library a town over that we hadn’t been to yet. Not sure I like it any better than ours. 🤷‍♀️📚
I’m struggling with not trying to buy so many new releases because it adds up 💰 but I’m on a dozen or so waitlists where I’m behind a hundred people 😖 it’s frustrating 😤
So I grabbed these two while I was there, though they weren’t on my #tbr list.

All I want to do is curl up with the best cat and read books 😺📚 in an ideal world, right?! ⁣
⁣
Except, even as I sit beside this one and read my book, it's not so picture-perfect. I've had a few people say to me before about how they're jealous I can read so quickly and I don't even know how to respond. Have they ever considered why I can get through books at the rate I do? Yes, I love to read. But often I read because I don't have the energy for anything remotely physical or perhaps my pain level is particularly high that day and I'm restricted to what I can do and I need rest. Are they still jealous? 😔
⁣
Today for example, I'm home from work and forced to rest because I've had a flare of erythema nodosum. My lower legs are covered in large, red, painful bumps and severely swollen (goodbye ankles!!). The last time I had this I spent a month on crutches, so I'm hoping it doesn't reach that point again 🤞But that was another GP visit (I read in the waiting room), more blood tests (I read whilst waiting there too), more medication (guess what I did whilst waiting in the chemist?), and a referral to yet another specialist consultant (more appointments means more reading in a waiting room) 💉💊🏥
So yeah, I love reading, it brings me much joy. But there's a chance I'm  escaping from my reality 💭

I have just finished my buddy read of The Tethered Mage with @sheisuchalauren and I think we both agreed this wasn't as good as we wanted it to be
.
.
It was a 🌟🌟🌟 / 5 .
.
There were too many characters to keep up with and one too many plot lines and twists it was just confusing. I wanted to love this but it just wasn't as fab as I thought. Especially when it started off with tonnes of action and then that just tailed off

Shout out to @katlyn_whelan for the great recommendation! I really enjoyed this book. If you don’t know what brought Oak Ridge, TN to life I highly suggest you read this book. It’s set in WWII and I loved the details that the author brought into the story line, but I do love a good historical fiction book. .

“This book is timely in a way that I could never have imagined.” .
@susankcarlton spoke about her journey writing IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF TRUE with Deborah Kalb and teased her next project.❤🌸 Check out the link in our bio to read the full Q&A.
.
After her father’s death, Ruth Robb and her family transplant themselves in the summer of 1958 from New York City to Atlanta—the land of debutantes, sweet tea, and the Ku Klux Klan. In her new hometown, Ruth quickly figures out she can be Jewish or she can be popular, but she can’t be both.

Annnnd we’re back with another audiobook. Has anyone else heard of it? I was inspired to look for other audiobooks by a favorite narrator. Saskia Maarveld narrated my fave AB, The Alice Network, so I thought I might as we’ll see what else she’s read. This takes place in 1950s Quebec.
