I think it’s fun to see the whole collection of books that I’ve read for the year in one visual place. Goodreads does a great job of offering this list, although I do think it would be fun if they broke it down so that I could see how many mysteries, historical fiction works, fiction… Read More Reading Roundup & My Top Five of 2020!
Has it really been three months since I last wrote a book review? I’m not sure where the time has gone, but it certainly hasn’t been spent traveling, shopping or getting out the house. I’ve been flying through books – some of which I definitely put down. Perhaps it’s harder to concentrate during COVID-19, or… Read More August – November Reading Round Up Part I
In this episode of What Are You Reading? I will cover fluffy books for those (like me) who have had trouble concentrating during these crazy times. And I’ll throw in a few heavy reads for those who are still able to concentrate. I’ve decided to only cover books that I’ve really enjoyed in the last… Read More June & July Reading Round-Up
I have a really hard time concentrating when there are major stressors in my life. And COVID-19 is right up there. Go figure. So, I’ve found myself chucking book after book aside. I don’t think they are bad books, but rather that I’m currently a bad reader. What I have been enjoying, however, is light,… Read More Reading in the Time of COVID-19
Last week on my blog, I listed all of my reads for 2019. My dad looked over the list and said, “But what were your top 5 favorite?” Oh dad, don’t you know that I have absolutely no memory, and that as soon as I finish a book, it’s gone? But, alas, always up to… Read More My 5 Best Reads of 2019
As 2019 ends, and we head into 2020, I want to wish everyone a healthy, happy and meaningful year ahead. As I find reading incredibly meaningful, I always love to share my end-of-the-year list of books. According to Goodreads, I read 117 books this year, many of which I loved. I hope you will enjoy… Read More My Reading Review for 2019
I’ve become impatient as I’ve aged. Or maybe more discerning. Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish between the two. Ironically, as the kids have grown and I’ve found myself with more time for reading, I’ve become less patient with the books I read and less willing to just stick it out. Because really, if I can’t… Read More The Power in Putting Down Books
I haven’t had a chance to write about recent book loves. Of course, anyone who wants my constant play-by-play can join me on Goodreads. There are a few particularly compelling books, however, that I wanted to discuss at more length. I’d love to hear your thoughts and to know what you’re reading as well. Not… Read More 4 Recent Reads to Recommend
I just finished reading Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant’s book called Option B. I found it so moving (on my Kindle) that I immediately went and bought a paper edition that I hope to lend to a few friends who are struggling. Now, I understand that there are those who did not enjoy this book.… Read More What If You Can’t Have Option A?
Happy New Year! The most important question for the new year is….what should you read first? As promised, here is my complete list of 2018 reads. I love how Goodreads keeps track of the books that I read – since I barely remember if I’ve finished something or what it was called. I’m one of… Read More 100 + Books from 2018
