When Books Become Movies

“This post was sponsored by Lionsgate as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.” We all know motherhood has catapulted me into a deep love for books. I’ve always been a reader, but this season is something special for me. I no longer read for assignments or extra credit. […]

Books To Read This Year

A new year means a new book list!  I’m a pretty happy camper when I’ve got a good book to look forward to each evening. I do most of my reading in the bath tub; it’s the perfect way to wind down from the day. With bath salts. And wine. Or coconut water. I aim […]

Books I Read + Loved This Year

 See the entire, super cool Goodreads infographic about my 2015 books here! Here’s the deal, I set out to read 12 books in 2015. And trashed that goal with a final total of 39 books. Craziness! And the vast majority of those were all from the library so my reading hobby runs me about $0/month. […]

Dark Rising and All the Other Books I Devoured This Summer

Back when I decided to read 12 books this year I thought I was hitting the ball outta the park when it comes to making realistic goals. I mean, I was a mom of two when midnight struck on December 31, 2014, I had hopes of getting pregnant in the coming year and my freelance […]

The Next Book You Need To Read

We’re all on the young adult fiction train, correct? It’s one train I don’t plan to ever get off of anytime soon. I’m pretty sure I’ll be 80 years old and traipsing my way into the bookstore to find the latest and greatest teen novels :) It started with Twilight, then Hunger Games and Divergent […]

Twelve Books For 2015

Every year I aim to read “x” amount of books. I love reading, always have, but with little ones roaming about and minimal solo time it’s not like you’ll find me plopped on the couch too often with a book in hand. Well, at least not for a few years until I can establish a bona […]

The Beauty of Books

This year we’ve resolved to read more and screen less. Jem is thrilled, Max … not so much. Don’t get me wrong, Max loves books too, just not his top pick when put up against a movie. Jemma and I though – books4life! I love that she loves books. And not just any books, she’s truly […]

My Reading Seasons, Thoughts on Dark Hope + a GIVEAWAY

I go through seasons with reading. Season one —> Consume all the books. Season two —> Read nothing. I’m currently in season one. I’ve joined a book club. My library hold list is l-o-n-g. I’ve been scouring Goodreads to bookmark favorites for fall. I’ve been awake into the wee hours embracing characters and story lines and causes. My […]

My Fall Reading List

I don’t think I mentioned that I too participated in the summer reading program alongside my kids. During the months of June, July and August I read 9 books. Not a bad average for an overtired, busy mama, right?  I’m going to keep the reading ball rolling and continue to utilize our fabulous library this fall. […]
