Just when I thought she was broke…she came alive! I‘m not quite ready to invest in another so I‘m forever grateful to the kindle paperwhite Gods.
Time to decompress…it‘s been one of those days! 3 more days until spring break!! Am I the only one whose bookshelves look a mess right now? 😩
“The amount of mint to mix with cow manure to make tea fur consumption.”
I can‘t even begin to imagine…This book is soul stirring and will sit with me.

Beauregard had me at hello! He‘s calculated, observant and unafraid. My tea of choice this morning is an absolute fave, so much so that I have it year round and not just in the winter.
Peppermint bark and reader socks for the win on this chilly Sunday. My read for this evening is our monthly Book Pearl pick titled Such a Fun Age by @kileyreid and curious to see how it will end. What are you guys reading on this chilly Sunday? #suchafunage #kileyreid #peppermintbark #readingsocks #pearlspick #bookpearls
I stayed up reading past my bedtime last night and babyyyy!! I‘m up early letting these thoughts marinate and will definitely have to sit in prayer this morning. I already know this book is going to sit with my soul… P.S. Can someone tell BN to stop putting stickers on the covers. 😩#the1619project #ireadpastmybedtime
The title alone draws a reader in! Husband For Sale by B.M. Hardin will not disappoint. Book Pearls have read several titles by B.M. Hardin and I‘m sure this pick for the month of July will be no different.
The only thing saving this read is the honey peach tea. This was my first read by Stuart Turton and I‘m a little perplexed as to why this book had such great reviews.
Can you imagine faking your own death? Who would you be? Where would you go? Well These Ghost Are Family by Maisy Card answers all of these question. Mr. Solomon aka Abel Paisley takes you on a ride you‘ll never forget and this cool weather and rainy day that we‘re experiencing is the perfect time to relax and read. #theseghostsarefamily #bookworm #rainydayreading #rainyvibes
I was quite cozy this morning with my coffee and Yellow Wife by @sadeqasays I don‘t know what‘s going to happen as I‘m still pretty early in this read but I can say, run not walk and pick your copy up soon. P.S. Shout to my baby sis for putting me onto this amazing coffee. #readsoullitphotochallenge #sadeqajohnson #cozy
The passing of Eric Jerome Dickey still has me shook and I‘m about to revisit a few of his older titles.
The Other Woman will have you on the edge of your seat and ready to jump off the rollercoaster. As for Freckles, she will forever be etched in my soul. I still feel her emotions as I talk about the infidelity and after many years I still say, I would have shot him.
I can only imagine what one does when they think no one is watching. I know this is a thriller and I‘m already curious to know what happens when no one is watching. The Pearls pick for the month of January is by Alyssa Cole and I am sure she will not disappoint us. #whennooneiswarching
Laughter is good for the soul but so is wine and really good conversations about books. My neighbors are the absolute best! Every time I visit I feel as if I‘ve taken a trip to the bookstore and had my soul renewed. I can‘t wait to dive into Turtle Boy. #turtleboy #graphicnovels #wineandconversation
It‘s been a while since I‘ve stayed up and listened to a book that had me at hello! I‘ve been with these folks since day one and don‘t want the saga to end. I‘m slowly making my way through it due to Book 3 not being released until December, that‘s so not fair! 😩
Pearls pick for the month of August will have the Pearls unpacking quite a bit as we read Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
Ghana, eighteenth century: two half sisters are born into different villages, each unaware of the other. One will marry an Englishman and lead a life of comfort in the palatial rooms of the Cape Coast Castle. The other will be captured in a raid on her village, imprisoned in the very same castle, and sold into slavery.
Pearls pick for the month of July is none other than Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison. It‘s been years since I‘ve read this (20+ to be exact) and I‘m curious to see if I have matured with my thinking. I‘m making way slowly through this piece and finding that Milkman is someone who still sits with me to this day.
This gloomy rainy Monday is giving me all types of life right now! The first sip of hot coffee hit different when you‘re not rushing off to work. I do miss my students and can‘t wait until I see them again but in the meantime...Alexandria House is turning my sad smile into a happy one with this book.
When your niece recommends a book and you actually love it! I‘d never heard of Patricia Highsmith until two days ago and I think I‘m hooked. My tea of the day just adds a little pep in a much needed way and on what seems like this one millionth day of quarantine I‘ll enjoy this time to relax. #timetoread #peachlemontea #starbucksmugs
