I made a decision in my mid-20s not to have children. It was 100% the right decision mentally and physically for me, I have no doubts.

But I have an imagination. And I have Instagram full of celebrity and friends‘ kids. They‘re cute, and sometimes I enjoy seeing them.

Then I read a beautiful book like this. If my friends were still having kids, I‘d give it as a gift. Just shows me what the fuss is about. 😁

Cinfhen Was it a tear jerker? 2w
Cinfhen Beautiful review by the way 2w
Megabooks @Bette Thank you! 2w
Megabooks @Cinfhen thank you! 💜 it was not a tear jerker for me, although I did get misty eyed once. It‘s written more humorously than to really cause a cry. 2w
Cinfhen Ok, good to know xx how you doing today?? 2w
Megabooks @Cinfhen Good!! I‘ve been making progress getting my strength back. 👍🏻👍🏻 2w

Reviewsbylola Kids are definitely a choice that one should weigh heavily. They‘re awesome if you want them, but damn it‘s a lot of emotional labor. 2w
Megabooks @Reviewsbylola I can‘t do the physical or emotional labor of kids. It just wouldn‘t have been good for me. I know there‘s kind of, hmmm, a love beyond what I‘ll understand, but there‘s also difficult parts, too. 2w
Reviewsbylola My husband always tried to warn me about the difficult parts beforehand. I didn‘t listen. 😅 It‘s so worth it if it‘s what you want. But I feel like we live in a society that expects lives to take a certain trajectory, with kids included, and being a parent is something that shouldn‘t be forced on people. Plus, the upside is there are always other people having kids so it‘s not like childless people can‘t get a fix. 😆 2w

Such a cute book with beautiful illustrations and colors it's great to see a kid's book inspire children especially children of color to love the skin they are born with and see the good within. #books#kidsbookswelove #kidsbooks #illustration #libby #libbyapp #libbylibraryapp #short #shortbook #loveyourskin #loveyourself #diversekidsbooks #lupitanyongo #fiction #lifelessons #bookstagram #ireadthisbookonbreak #readinonesitting

This was yet another brilliant Ari Thor, but not my favorite, even though it was accompanied by a delightful little snack #atethewholepie #readinonesitting

Excellent! I just devoured this one. So far my favorite of hers, although I loved her witch one as well. ✨

These are books I #readinonesitting and re-read from time to time. I don‘t have a copy of the tagged book, seems I always talk it up to someone then give away my copy to them.😂 #GratefulReads

This was the last book I #readinonesitting. I started reading it about 9pm on a Friday and stayed up until 5am ish the next morning. I kept telling myself just one more chapter until there were no more..lol. Somehow I forgot to rate it as a pick 🤷‍♀️ probably due to a serious lack of sleep. Oh the things we do for a good book! 📖 #TheLastRiders

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 💫

Britt-Marie Was Here | Fredrik Backman

#GratefulReads I enjoyed Britt-Marie so much that it was a #ReadInOneSitting book!
@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

Bookishthoughts I've enjoyed Backman, still have to read this one. 2mo
Kaila-ann I‘m with @Bookishthoughts - I have this one on my shelf but haven‘t gotten to it yet. 2mo
marywag08 Have you read My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She‘s Sorry? It‘s the prequel to this one. I immediately picked up Britt Marie was Here after reading that one. 2mo

CoffeeNBooks @marywag08 I have that one on my bookshelf, but haven't read it yet. I didn't realize I'd read them out of order. Oops! 😂 2mo
marywag08 @CoffeeNBooks No worries! The first one will explain the whole situation with Ken and give you a new perspective on several areas of Britt-Marie‘s life. They are both excellent! I think I liked Britt-Marie was Here the most out of the two. 2mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @CoffeeNBooks I didn‘t either!! 2mo
