What’s on my reading list.

One of my biggest regrets I’ve had recently is how few books I’ve read. When I was younger I could read through books faster than my mom could bring me to the library, I had piles scattered across my bedroom and I never went anywhere without a one. That now seems so long ago and I look back over the years and almost watch as other things have taken the place of one of my favourite past times.

While some of my new hobbies are great; I’ve taught myself how to knit and love to sew new things, I went to school for art and spent years of college just painting and drawing my days away and I have an amazing daughter who takes up a lot of my time. But watching too much mindless television is not a great way to spend all my time, especially at the end of a stressful day. So one of my major goals for 2018 was to read more and so far I haven’t been doing too bad!

I thought I’d let you in on my current reading list!

I started in February and read one book and it’s worth a mention for sure!

You can get it here on Amazon! 

 

I saw almost like a movie preview for this book and was so intrigued! Growing up near Salam, Massachusetts I was excited to see what this one was about. It ended up being a super easy read and a really gripping one too. It took me no time at all to get through this book (because I couldn’t put it down). I loved the historical aspects of this book along with the fun magic scattered throughout it. I also loved seeing that the author was actually related to someone during the trials and had a lot of family history in the area! How interesting!

My current read is thanks to a Secret Sister gift (I’m currently doing a secret sister with a group of women from the boat my husbands on) that I got for the month of March!

Get them here! They’re great and worth a read.

 

I’ve read the first of this series already, The Queen of the Tearling and loved it. Since it has been awhile, I decided to reread it and I still love it. It’s a gripping tale of a girl who’s been hidden away her whole life in preparation for her 19th birthday when she would be able to claim her right to a throne in a kingdom that has lacked a strong leader for a long time. She faces so many trials and overcomes so much and one of my favourite parts is how strong and determined she is, but relatable. I can’t wait to get to the next two! I think there are even rumours it might be made into a movie!

The last book on my list is Bringing Up Bébé by Pamela Druckerman

I read this book once when while I was pregnant with my first daughter and I loved it. My husband and I aren’t really strick on what “type” of parenting we follow, we kind of parent what feels right for our daughter but some of the concepts in this book have really shaped choices we made. I was in love with the idea of waiting when they cry or make noise to see if they settle themselves, and we’ve never compromised when it comes to feeding our daughter anything so she tries new things. With a new one on the way, I thought it would be nice to brush up some on some of the things I liked.

So those are the books I’ve been reading and will be reading coming up this month! I’ve been loving ending my night a little early and curling up in bed with a good book.

What’s on your reading list?
