It may be 55 degrees, but #HawthorneBlake wanted to "do some ninja training outside," to which I said, "of course!" And "Can I read while I watch you train?"
I appreciate a more subversive approach to Mother's Day, but I am on board for sleeping in, coffee delivery, and treats.
1. Des Moines, Iowa
2. Good Talk by Mira Jacob
3. Is wine a snack?
4. I'm really looking forward to cooking Thai food for friends and family tonight
5. I haven't done a #readathon since #HawthorneBlake was born (he's 4.5), so I won't try to read ALL day and night like I used to, but I do hope to read more hours than I would on a typical Saturday
It's time for a #giveaway! Comment below by midnight Iowa time Saturday for a chance to win! I'll contact the winner for a mailing address Sunday and mail it out Monday. (U.S. only.) Good luck!
I've followed him since The Real World. I'm excited to learn even more about his journey.
Very, very low expectations for this book club pick: the author wrote this biography about his mom. We'll see how it is....
Debating abandoning this one (or skipping to the end), as I've been reading it for a week and keep finding excuses to do anything else, but instead I'm corralling myself at my favorite happy hour, putting my phone in my bag and reading for at least an hour before I decide. #booksandbooze
Today on the blog: my review of The Library Book, which I read for #Booked2019 (reminds you of your happy place), #ReadHarder (nonviolent true crime), #HelloSunshine, #PopSugar2019 (recommended by a celebrity you admire--Reese Witherspoon obviously!), and #LitsyAtoZ
Today on the blog (link in bio), my thoughts on the first Gabriella Giovanni mystery, which I finally read for #ATY2019: This novel made me fall in love with not only Gabriella, but the people around her: friends, family, co-workers, and nemeses. It's also a page-turning mystery. I was tempted to start Blessed are the Meek (the second book in the series) immediately, but I decided to wait--at least a few days.
