Books To Read

These books are currently sitting at home for me to read thanks to my awesome Sister-in-law and Mom!

About a year ago I rediscovered that I like to read! Once we had babies, if I had any time to read, it was typically in the middle of the night while I was pumping or nursing and it was usually the Baby 411 book to learn why my baby hiccupped or how to actually sleep through the night. Now that they are more self-sufficient I find it easier to sit and enjoy a good book!

My book choice is very random. I love when my Sister-in-law or Mom send books my way because I know they will be good!  Otherwise I skim our Library’s “Quick Find” section and I pick my books so fast to make sure my children don’t disturb the peace. Last summer my son thought it would be funny to pick the thickest book he could find in the isle and said “Mom, you should read this one!” Joke was on him! He actually picked a book that I wanted to read, “Scarlett”, the sequel to Margaret Mitchell’s “Gone With the Wind”. Although I never read the book, the movie has been one of my favorites since I was a little girl! Paxton couldn’t believe that I read such a big book, and I have to admit I too was shocked! “Scarlett” was good, especially if you needed some closure to Scarlett and Rhett’s relationship and whether he actually gave a damn in the end. But I had trouble getting through this book at times as the descriptive details were drug out a little too much for my liking. I’m glad I read it though and now “Scarlett” is officially checked off my list of books to read!

Since the kids had no school yesterday we were able to make a trip to the library! We love going to the library as much as we can. Yesterdays trip was more for play than to pick out books:

Stay tuned as to which books I actually get finished and recommend, I better get started!

What are some of your favorite books?

  1. Did not like The Shack. Loved A Man Called Ove and you should definitely read that before Backman’s newer ones. The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah is a must read!
