I‘ve fallen out of love with reading for a bit. I always find re-reads of my favorites make me fall back in love- it‘s been 6 years. It‘s time.

Ashley_Nicoletto I‘ve reread this four times. It‘s my favorite book and every time I wonder if I will have out grown it, but the answer is always no. Enjoy! This one is the best. 2mo
HotMessJess @Ashley_Nicoletto I AGREEE!!!!! I remember the first time I read it- I was in the Philippines during my second field season and the professor I worked with would notice that after dinner every night I would just disappear for HOURS to read. No book has ever held my attention like this one. 2mo
Bklover This makes me want to read it. Again. Love it every time 2mo

Last day before Maternity leave, getting to do lists done and everything in order.... yes I am one of those crazy planner people (thanks for the addiction, work husband). Time to drink some tea, relax and read! I have a book list lined up for my first week of leave and I am SO excited to share it with you! Hint: it involves finishing what I start! Here‘s to being one day closer to a glass of wine with my book! 13 days until I‘m due! 🍷👶🏼🍾🎉

2019 is my year of intentions: I wanted to share my 3 intentions for this year. The most important of these? Finish what I start, and that starts with the books I‘ve half read and abandoned for no good reason.

My other intentions are below...but I should‘ve added enjoy a MASSIVE glass of red wine when this kid arrives in the next few weeks 🍾🍷❤️
http://booknerdwilltravel.com/2019/01/08/lookingtowards2019/

AlaMich A friend‘s baby is due in about five weeks and she can‘t wait to have a glass of wine, either. 😆 7mo
HotMessJess @AlaMich I‘m with her! Due in two weeks and my husband has said time and time again that he wants to buy me a nice bottle to have when we get home and I‘m like NOPE! I got an $8 bottle of my fav weeknight wine that I‘ve had on my counter since the week I found out I was pregnant and it‘s the first damn bottle I‘m going for! 7mo

While I am deeply enjoying The Circle, I had to take a break. I‘m 1/2 way through and it‘s all getting a little silly for me. I really don‘t like the main character... I said it! I‘ve tried to only read one book at a time, but with all the silliness in The Circle I needed a nice change of pace with some nonfiction. No regrets.

KathyWheeler Mae is the worst! 11mo
Cinfhen I HATED 11mo
HotMessJess @KathyWheeler SHE IS SO HELPLESS AND STUPID. I want to fight her. @Cinfhen I have no idea why it is going the way it is! I was SO into it the first 200 pages and then suddenly it‘s just nosediving. The writing is all changed and everything. It‘s really disappointing. 11mo

KathyWheeler @Cinfhen The movie is terrible! 11mo
Cinfhen No surprise there @KathyWheeler as I read the book I was trying to imagine Tom Hanks and it just wasn‘t happening 🙄 11mo
KathyWheeler @Cinfhen I had read the book before the movie was announced and was surprised when I read they‘d cast him in that role. It wasn‘t a good fit at all. 11mo

This book is terrifyingly real

Amanda.smith Agree! It gives the book something extra knowing we may be heading in that direction... 11mo

I FINISHED A BOOK! I want to scream it from the rooftops!

For some reason during this pregnancy my ability to focus lasts for roughly 45 seconds.... but last night I FINISHED The Boy on The Bridge, which was amazing! I‘m sad it took so long to power through it! But guess what, y‘all? I picked up the circle and read almost 50 pages!! I. AM. HOOKED!
So now it‘s 1 book down 11 to go before this kid gets here! #babysteps

Phlamboyant I thought I was going to get all the reading and crafting done during my last pregnancy and neither of those things happened. Doing those things with a baby are struggle enough, but pregnancy brain wouldn't even let me focus before he came?! 11mo
