I have definitely let my need to be perfect, to be right and to have the approval with others interfere with what I want to do and who I want to be. Brene mixes observations from her research with personal narratives and experiences to show what she learned from both. She identifies and describes "guideposts" to leading a wholehearted life. The narrator was fine, but I so would have preferred to listed to Brene Brown read her own book.

The Art of Theft | Sherry Thomas

I so love reading the Lady Sherlock series. Sherry captures some of Sherlock Holmes most engaging and interesting character traits in her Lady. This story has Lady Sherlock and company assisting an Indian Maharini with some old secrets and the plot twists never stop, but no worries! Lady Sherlock's deductive skills are more than up to the task. There's still a wonderful tension between Lord Ingram and Lady Sherlock. Next book, please!

ErinSueMreads Sherry Thomas is super duper nice too! 3d

I love the idea of a #WeeklyForecast! I hope it helps me organise my reading life a little more.

Audiobooks this week:
A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway and The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown.

Print/Ebooks
I am almost done with For Better, For Worse by Caryl Rivers and The Art of Theft by Sherry Thomas.

Today I picked up Ongoingness, The Last Templar, Midnight Chicken and The Moveable Toystore.

Another academic mystery. This time, in 14th Century Cambridge University. Doctor and Fellow Matthew Bartholomew has to deal with murder in the midst of the Black Death. The plot was a little convoluted, but moved fast. A lot of attention goes to the plague and its affects on this late medieval community.#academicmysteries

Tamra This sounds so interesting! 5d

#whatshouldIreadnext is one of my favorite podcasts, so I was delighted to hear @annebogel narrate her own audiobook. This is a book I'm going to have own in print, too! I felt the frequent need to highlight, write my own margin notes and add stickies all over this book! The last chapter, especially resonated - the need to log my books competes with my need to be reading, Even as write this, I hear my current read calling my name!

Rooftoppers | Katherine Rundell
Pickpick

One unexpected find lead to another! I picked up a copy of Midnight Chicken & Other Recipes to Live For at my library and feel in love with the stories and the food. The author makes a lot of connections to the important books in her life. One of these was The Rooftoppers. A magical middle grade story of Sophie's hunt for her long lost mother and her discovery of so much more!

I absolutely adore vintage cookbooks! This was from a small antique store in Topeka, Kansas. I am always excited to find a little bit of a previous owner inside the book - This was a gift to a new wife. The book would have been brand-new, just published. It's got all kinds of menus - even for cooking for your "elderly" family members! #cookbookfun

Chrissyreadit That is a fun find! 1w

Lately I've been interested in academic mysteries. This one goes all the way back to the 13th century at Oxford. In the absence of modern forensic techniques, Master William Falconer relies on deduction to solve crimes, This one also satisfies #readharderchallenge for a mystery where the victim is not a woman.

First read of the year! Started this a couple of days ago, but it is what I am currently reading. I'm going to ditch Goodread tracking for the year in favor of a spreadsheet I got from #bookriot and I'm also going to be more present on Litsy this year.

My challenges for the year: BookRiot #ReadHarderChallenge, #WhatShouldIReadNextChallenge and #ReadingWomenChallenge.

I've been reading fiction and nonfiction from World War I. This book seemed required - there should be no romanticising this war or any other. #wwi

This book tore me to pieces! Such an amazing story, explores the fear and hatred that leads to so many ruined lives. All in the context of a beautifully written story. More, please!

I wasn't sure how I would like this stand-alone book because I've been such a fan of the Murder Squad Mysteries. But Tana French can still create characters that are real, flawed, and so very interesting. And then insert them into a family and community full of secrets to unearth.

This book was so good. A story of Appalachia, how many multi racial and ethnic groups that live there. The story of History, hope and books.

I picked up this book at the #tucsonfestivalofbooks a few weeks ago after seeing the author on one of the panels. This story is set in Oklahoma in the heart of the Cherokee Nation's Tribal lands. It is primarily a great mystery, but it also weaves in the history of the Cherokee nation as well as touches on some contemporary issues.
