Do you ever find yourself wishing that you had that friend that was always reading something current and interesting, possibly a book that will transport you within its pages or change the way you see the world?
I’ve tried to follow other public book clubs like Reese Witherspoon’s and Oprah’s picks, but it can be hard to sync up your reading pace with theirs. I really like the Book of the Month subscription box, especially because you can read a synopsis and a judge’s review of the books. They also do a lot of pre-releases for popular books.
I’m very fortunate that my beautiful mother used to be an English teacher and is still an avid reader to this day. My sister, my mom and I actually do a book club several times a year. Every time my mom comes to visit me, she brings me at least one new book. I should mention that she only lives and hour and a half away. So it’s no surprise that I have a stack of books patiently waiting to be opened.
With our recent week-long trip to Costa Rica, I was able to have time to read finally. And I didn’t waste any time at all! I read a YA novel by Sara Evans, Nourished by Lia Huber, The Fault in Our Stars (I know, I’m late to the party on this one), and I started I am Malala. It was awesome to get back into reading again!
I love to share books that I find interesting or life-changing with my coworkers and friends so I thought that I’d start to share them here. Feel free to leave comments, book suggestions, grammar corrections, or any other concerns.
Oh, and Happy Reading!
