I needed to be reminded to chill the 🤬 out. Is this some break through parenting advice? No. Was it full of easy to digest platitudes? Yes. And, they didn't make me feel like a crappy parent or that I couldn't achieve the goal written about. So, that gets it a thumbs up from me. #parenting #parenthood #mothed #father #child #pshychology #selfhelp #familytherapy #relationship #penguinrandomhouse #stevenfonso #findingmagicinthemess #usedbooks

It's not what you think. Well, actually it's lot of poop talk. But, in the informative way. This book is filled with tons of detail and information from research on the microbiology in our guts. If you want to learn about the gut and brain connection, give this a read. But, give yourself time to slug through it. It's a dense read. #science #womeninscience #letthemeatdirt #workmanpublishing #algonquin

This was a fun collection of essays on the most random topics. They tied them nicely to their podcast shows, when applicable. Great crossover. #stuffyoushouldknowpodcast #podcastbook #joshclark #chuckbryant #nilsparker #flatironbooks #essaycollection #triviaknowledge

Mikki Kendall is a well-established author and writer in the field of the feminist movement. This book is a must read for those of us who are NOT BIWOC. It's necessary to remind ourselves of what has historically been a myopic feminist movement that often leaves behind women in marginalized communities and in what lanes we need to stay. #mikkikendall #solidarityisforwhitewomen #vikingpublisher #biwocauthor #biwocwriter #intersectionalfeminism

Truly Devious: A Mystery | Maureen Johnson

Riddles and a mystery. Teenage characters and an unexpected twist. Set in a boarding school "where learning is a game." For me this book was a slight miss. But, many people love the series. #mystery #yaread #womanwriter #femaleauthor #maureenjohnson #trulydevious #seriesread #trilogy #KatherineTegenBooks

This is a fun rhyming book that my 5 yo son loved. The story is delightful. The illustrations art well-done and lovely. The theme is quite proudly about overcoming anxiety. #childrensbook #thanksgivingbook #holidaybook #adawallace #andyelkerton #anxiety #rhymingbook #illustrations #sourcebooks #humor

A light but long read. Or rather it felt long. Nina is a British librarian who finds herself running a bookshop in rural Scotland. This is a love story and a story about finding one's self and place. #femaleauthor #womanauthor #femalewriter #womanwriter #romance #fiction #thebookshoponthecorner #bookaboutbooks #bookaboutreading #harpercollins #scotland

Direct and practical advice on emotional regulation. Not for people who like sugar-coated, sweet talks. She is not a licensed mental health professional, so don't mistake it for theraputic literature. Great for general life coaching. It's part of her series of the No F*cks Given Guide. #quickread #sarahknight #femaleauthor #womanauthor #lifeadvice #lifecoach #quickread #practicaladvice #bluntadvice

Emily Charlton(The Devil Wears Prada) is reunited with her long-time friend Miriam and Miriam's friend Karolina (who is Emily's acquaintance). The three women take on scandle, marriage, motherhood, careers, and the suburbs through blunt and biting humor. It makes for an ok vacation read. #femaleauthor #womanwriter #laurenweisberger #whenlifegivesyoulululemons #beachread #vacationbook #humour #harpercollins #fiction

My son (5) loved this fun book about the monsters under the bed. The illustrations are beautiful. The story is written to hold a young kid's attention and so they can easily enjoy it. We will be reading this until it's due back to the library. Add this to the Halloween list! #amandanoll #heythatsmymonster #halloweenbook #childrensbook #childrenshalloweenbook #beautifulillustrations

If you like the Hunger Games Trilogy, you must read this book. We enter this book at the 10th annual reaping, after the war. Snow is in his final year in Secondary school and a mentor to a district 12 tribute. It's well written. So much so that you are almost endeared to Snow. Friendship, betrayal, authority and oppression. #femaleauthor #womanauthor #suzannecollins #balladofsongbirdsandsnakes #scholasticpress #hungergamesnovel

The Circle | Dave Eggers

Clear themes relating back to classics like 1984 and Fahrenheit 451. The biggest theme is clearly the struggle for big tech to find balance between the common good and the personal privacy of the public. Privacy is theft and full transparency is to be totally vulnerable. #maleauthor #malewriter #thecircle #daveeggers #booktomovie #alfredaknopf

Less of a how to and more of a memoir of her journey to less; less debt, less over consumption of food and alcohol, less clutter, and less stress. There is a small section at the end outlining, for you, how she accomplished her goals achieved in the book. Themes: less is more and money doesn't buy happiness. #caitflanders #femaleauthor #womanauthor #hayhouseinc #generalinterest #finanicaladvice #declutter #quickread

I adore the poetic prose of this book. We follow 4 high-school seniors through 24 hrs during their senior year in Sidney Australia. Art and imagery are thoroughly woven throughout the entire book, even in the character themselves. The themes of this book include hope, fear, pain, young love, self-limitations, and art as a metaphor. #penguinrandomhouse #australianauthor #femaleauthor #womanauthor #youngadult #2012book #graffitimoon #cathcrowley

I went into this book thinking it would be vapid and shallow. It is far from that. Jessica gives the readers details she has never spoken about before. Details that range from intensly painful to profoundly joyful. It's thoughtfully written. #jessicasimpson #openbook #femaleauthor #womanauthor #autobiography #divorce #celebrityauthor #motherhood #musician

Chelsea.Poole I agree! I thought it was another silly celebrity memoir before reading it. Definitely more depth than I anticipated. 2y

This is a great book for helping young children learn to understand and cope with separation anxiety. It explains how being apart from someone does not mean we are not still connected to that person. It's a great tool for kids who are dealing with loss. It makes the conversation a lot easier. #childrensbook #separationanxiety #copingwithloss #patricekarst #joannelewvriethoff #theraputicbook

I don't know why I don't like this book more...I agree with so much of what West speaks about in this book. I too dislike Adam Sandler and don't understand his popularity. I can appreciate being presented with a different perspective than the one I've lived. #lindywest #thewitchesarecoming #shrill #feminist #womenauthor #femaleauthor #politicalpopculture

Direct. Great advice nuggets. Well organized points. Easy to implement ideas. Not overly impractical. Provides some intimate details of the author's life so you connect with her. Reality-based financial advise. Reality-based career advise. Not for people who like sugar-coated, sweet talks. #sarahknight #femaleauthor #womanauthor #careeradvice #finanicaladvice #quickread #practicaladvice #bluntadvice #gyst
