Does this qualify as cannibalism? 😆
He loves his books and is reaffirming my belief you can never start too young on a new reader.
Reading this book on the recommendation of a client and already laughing out loud by the start of the second chapter and learned about two very different, but both entirely new to me, topics in the first chapter. I will have to force myself to not stay up all night reading this one as I have training for a new job around sunrise tomorrow morning. 💀
Just. Read. It.
This took me longer than I care to admit because life got in the way, but it was wonderful and I will definitely read it again after I loan it out to the friends I convinced must absolutely read this one and promised to loan it to before I was even half of the way through.
I am quite upset that this is not exactly how we meet Dumbledore in the first film.
When not feeling well, cuddling up with this snuggle bug and working on a HP re-read is a great option. As an added bonus here‘s a picture from a photo shoot the kiddo and I did a few weeks ago. Surprisingly he seemed to have just as much fun as I did with it.
Seems like a good start to a book
Because no age is too young to start reading to your child. He loves this time with mom already, but that might just be because I‘ll read to him until he falls asleep while we cuddle which a two weeks old is a priority in his world.
I originally thought that I‘d get all the reading done on my maternity leave. Joke‘s on me. Not only am I always hungry and exhausted, but I finally found the thing I love more than reading: cuddling with my newborn. I am upset with myself that I had to put myself back on the library waitlist for this book since I only made it through the first chapter in 2 weeks though. (I started it in the hospital during labor.) See you in 6 months Ms Obama.
My poor hubby was so excited to think I was reading a book about working out (he‘s a power lifter and gym time is his happy time) so needless to say he was very disappointed when I explained what the “pump” in the title is. Photos of soon to be with us Tyr and the daddy he looks exactly like because they‘re both just so cute!
I am so excited for this book. This year we got all the nieces and nephews their holiday gifts via ThriftBooks which got me a couple freebies. This is the one I redeemed as my treat to myself
I‘m struggling here. I genuinely enjoyed the individual parts of this book, but am conflicted about the book as a whole. I think it‘s that the book both starts and ends in a sad spot, but that the story itself is not tragic. It‘s rare to find a book I don‘t have a strong opinion on, but this one is very much taking the cake on that front. The book shelf talkers at the start of each chapter were excellent however!
I‘m still unsure how much I like this book, but it‘s useful. I never read more than a month ahead and it is helpful in knowing a bit what to expect coming up, but some of the information also feels a bit antiquated even though this is a revised edition. Overall it‘s still a good launching point each month.
I‘ve been working waaaay too much lately so I‘ve latched on to the Fools Gold series and a set of light reads that build off of each other to make each story a bit more interesting. Probably not what I‘d be reading if I had more time, but when I‘m reading in actual 15 minute snippets of my day I am completely on board. The predictable flow of the stories definitely helps in those quick reading sessions.
1. No, but I always restart on the first chapter in the left hand page of where by bookmark is.
2. Both. Whenever I can find time but I tend to find more time in the evening.
3. Nope. I routinely read while sitting next to my husband watching a movie
Does anyone else about lose their minds when they‘re way too busy to find reading time? I‘m so looking forward to settling in with a book after a trip to my favorite bookstore Sunday! Picture of our baby bump since that‘s about a third of my current time consumption (work being the other two thirds)
When it‘s hot and I‘m feeling extra pregnant and cranky, I sit down right in front of the AC with a book, iced coconut milk, and a mandarin orange. Here‘s to uncrankifying (yes it‘s a word now, I‘ve so declared it) before the hubby gets home!
1. After a long week at work I‘m fried, and today is full of appointments.
2. A nice warm bath (and I have a gnome shaped bath bomb) and at least getting my nails painted.
3. I get to hear my baby‘s heart beat today and I felt him or her move for the first time last Friday!
4. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in my paperback set. I haven‘t read this copy yet as we got them for my hubby.
Having quite the Monday already, BUT I have a doctor appointment this afternoon where I‘ll hear little Tyrian‘s heart beat again and a hair appointment finally after 3 months of neglect (given that I‘m a hairstylist this is a big no no in my world)! Plus I‘ll have plenty of reading time to get going on this beauty. This is my first time reading my newest paperback copies of the books! But first I‘ll paint my nails during my work conference call.
1. Teal or turquoise
2. Summer normally but while I‘m pregnant anything not so hot apparently
3. YA fantasy
4. Right now crochet but I change my mind a lot on hobbies and am always trying something new
5. Popsicles and ice cream!
6. Wine - I like to think it misses me too 😉
7. Fun bookmarks or any Harry Potter merch
8. Completely random tags @HannahHaaa @abookolive
I just realized I never posted this after I took it. I love all the HP goodies and especially the baby clothes. I almost bought that Hedwig for little one this last weekend and only didn‘t because I was conflicted between that and a plush Monster Book of Monsters, but now he/she can have both! This was amazing, especially for my first swap. Thank you! #bookandbottleswap @Tera66 @JoScho
What an appropriate book to finish out my 2018 reading goal challenge. Apparently I should have set it a bit higher, but I don‘t read as much in summer so it‘ll slow down for a bit now until it gets cold here again. I can‘t wait to share this series with our future kiddos.
I am struggling to not read ahead even though they tell you not to so badly!! I‘m going to need more books. Also does anyone struggle when they can‘t put a book on Goodreads yet?? I‘m so afraid my pregnancy brain will forget once the time comes like I‘ve forgotten about 1/3 of everything lately. Thank goodness for Siri setting me constant reminders when I ask.
