This has, hands down, been my favorite book I have read this summer. It‘s raw and real and “right in the feels.” I loved it and HIGHLY recommend it. ❤️

Hello #Littens! I have been getting back into the swing of things and going to the gym prior to the new year! I figured I need some #audiobook #suggestions. What do y‘all like to read when working out? Let me know! 💪🏼📚

Insightful. Real. True.

I was sooooo hooked on this book that, when I had to drive home, I found the audio so I could finish it as I drove.

The Fame Game | Lauren Conrad
post image

When I was in high school, the reality shows “The OC” and “The Hills” were what every It Girl would talk about. Fast forward a decade, and one of those reality stars, Lauren Conrad, is still a household name. She‘s a style icon, influencing countless people, and she is also an accomplished author. I‘m sure if I‘d pick up one of her novels, I‘d be back with my girlfriends watching #californiagurls living it up! ♥️

I love when pages have a deckle edge. While some believe that this is a defect or imperfection, I beg to differ. In fact, I think these books have a #fancy quality, and I am always on the hunt to find novels that possess this little trait.

Pride and Prejudice | Jane Austen
post image

One of my favorite quotes of all time in a movie is Elizabeth‘s reply to Darcy when asked how one is to encourage affection. Her sassy response of “Dancing... even if one‘s partner is barely tolerable.” certainly has a bit of sting behind it. But, #onedance later, their chemistry is undeniable. P&P has been on my TBR pile for a long time. I think it‘s time to pick it up. 💚

OMG, guys, this book... READ IT NOW.

Matthew Quick brilliantly portrays the heartbreaking emotions of a young man who believes that his life will not get better and that suicide is his only option. This book sheds light on why it is SO IMPORTANT to be there for your fellow man. Luckily for Leonard, someone does step up for him, even though it is a difficult step to take.

Listen and be there for one another, friends. ❤️

Modern Romance illustrates how dating has transformed over the last few generations. The author explains through interviews and statistical data that dating can be, well, complex and messy, even with the advances in technology. Is this groundbreaking information? No, but Aziz encourages readers to be honest, both with themselves and with others they are dating, and to embrace the journey. (I highly recommend the audio book... he cracks me up!)💕

I enjoyed this book. I saw the film before I read it, and I was pleasantly surprised how much the movie followed the story line. I loved the characters, especially the quirky, chatty nature of Lou. ❤️ Has anyone read the other novels “Me After You” or “Still Me”? Thoughts?

Small Great Things | Jodi Picoult

In her novel, Small Great Things, ‘Jodi Picoult tackles race, privilege, prejudice, justice, and compassion.‘ I can always turn to Jodi Picoult and count on her challenging me to see the world from another perspective. #librarybook #summerreading

DimeryRene I‘ve only ever read one thing of hers, but I want more!! 2y
rather_be_reading absolutely love her 2y
ErinGoBragh1011 I loved this book. It made me happy, sad, angry everything all at once. I yelled out loud while reading this and I also took it personally and wanted to apologize personally to that nurse for how she was being treated by white people. I wanted to tell at the couple and make them see how their beliefs were wrong. She is one of my favorite authors. House Rules and The Storyteller are both wonderful. 2y

leigha_land @ErinGoBragh1011 House Rules was my first pick for my work‘s book club! It was a hit! 2y
ErinGoBragh1011 Usually her books are really heavy and after I read one I need a pretty big break in between before I read another one if her books. 2y
leigha_land @ErinGoBragh1011 I completely understand. I believe the best books challenge us to see from a different perspective. Take Turk for example. We are able to see his thought process, and we are enlightened by some life events that led him to believe the way he did. Does it excuse his actions? Absolutely not, but as a reader, we are so invested in him as a character and the subject matter overall; it makes his transformation means so much more. 2y
