I got a few books about organic gardening, cows, and yoga. In celebration of Earth Day tomorrow, I have been riding my bike for days now instead of driving. #librarygirl #earthdayeveryday

Ramona Forever | Beverly Cleary
post image

Happy 103rd birthday, Beverly Cleary! You‘ll always be my favorite author. Thank you for writing such descriptive books with lovable characters that are set right here in our home; Oregon. This is a picture that I took with the Ramona statue that is a part of the Beverly Cleary Sculpture Garden in Grant Park in Portland, Oregon. It‘s walking distance to Ramona‘s childhood home on Klickitat Street. #beverlycleary #ramona #oregon

The cool thing about not reading is that I‘m knitting again. When I was on prescribed psychiatric medications, I lost a lot of my creativity and since being off of meds now for 14 months, those sparks of creativity have returned. #knittery #mentalhealth

I‘m in the downward end of manic episode and I have absolutely no desire to read. It breaks my heart to have given up on these great books before finishing but as a true #librarygirl I‘m going to give them back for someone else to enjoy since I‘m not reading. #manic

Monday's Not Coming | Tiffany D. Jackson

Claudia and Monday have been inseparable and then Monday just disappears. If your best friend went missing and no one seemed to care... what would you do? I blazed through this babe because I had to know what happened to Monday. I had to go back a couple times and reread parts because I just didn‘t follow but what a story! I think that the ways our brain tries to protect us from trauma and tragedy is amazing! #youngadultbooks

Snow day #7 of 2019. I know it doesn‘t sound like much to those covered in snow most of the winter but out here in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, we don‘t see much snow. Some folks flocked to the store for food before the predicted snow storm.... I went to the library. #librarygirl

Rome, Lex and Mercy are girls from Cottonwood and they were either born with wonderful gifts or horrible curses depending on who you‘re talking to. The loyalty these girls show each other is beautiful. They are so tight but at the same time, they‘re so far away, each of them holding on to secrets so big they can‘t tell even each other. #magic

I wanted to like this book so much but it‘s just went on and on about nothing (which seems to be a super disappointing theme with many new YA authors). I should have bailed on it about halfway through when I realized it was like living a Groundhog‘s Day. Blah, blah, rinse and repeat.

No one understands how I can eat apples and still stay in ketosis but I‘m going to keep on doing it! 🙂 Fuji apple with sugar free sunflower seed butter and salt. This book is excellent!

Keto Reset is a free download from The Ketogentic Girl, Vanessa Spina. I‘ve been keto for over a year now but it‘s always great to keep researching and learning. I actually like that she‘s not a dietician or nutritionist and just a gal that wants you to feel as good as she does! #ketoisneato

I‘ve been doing yoga for a very long time but I found this gem to be wonderful. I think that Jessamyn‘s approach to yoga is laid back and her descriptions and photos of the poses are great! Even though yoga classes are with other humans (and animals) yoga itself is very personal and I like the way that Jessamyn reiterates to just do your own thing. Think about your own breath, your own poses, your own flow. 🧘🏽‍♀️💚 #yogalove

My bike, books and cannabis. I‘m not sure how that works but it works! 🤪 This book is a true gem. I am really loving how the author has planted the seeds of mutual interest between Grace and Eva. 💚 #adultsreadingyoungadult

gradcat I don‘t see any cannabis! 🌿😂 (edited) 10mo
manicdirteater @gradcat I was at the dispensary to pick some up! 🤗 10mo
gradcat 😂👍🌿 That‘s funny! I have yet to live in a state when, or where, cannabis is legal, for medical uses or otherwise. I‘ve always wondered if it would help my awful migraines and/or arthritis. (edited) 10mo

Are Frannie and Louis the most mature teenagers to ever grace pages? Throughout the book I just kept thinking, “They‘re kids, right?” And, by the end I thought, “Wow, people in their 40‘s aren‘t this mature or realistic.” It was a really easy read and I enjoyed the little bits of magic.

My heart just broke over and over for the torment that the main character, Hannah endured on the bus and at school. With much of the bullying taking place right in front of her big sister makes it hard to read. Even though the subject matter is of a darker sort, the silver lining is the unpredictable friendship she forms with Josh. #youngadult

I think books like this are important. Disorganized eating is growing at an alarming rate and it‘s not only young women that are suffering. The main character, Elizabeth is very relatable even if you don‘t have disorganized eating issues. It‘s great to tag along on her journey towards self discovery and boundaries. #ireadya #disorganizedeating

The more time I spend in nature, the more I enjoy poetry. This is a beautiful collection of words with the subtle peeks through photographs into the natural world. I only connected with a few poems from this book but it was a real raw connection.

This book is fantastic! Ali Miller is filled with so much excellent knowledge and I love the way that she uses food as medicine! She breaks things down well enough that you don‘t need a medical dictionary to understand it. I think I highlighted the entire book because there‘s so much delicious information. 🧠 ❤️ #mentalhealth
