Guess what? We booked our honeymoon re-do!
We tried to go to Puerto Rico in September of 2017 but - the hurricane. So we went to the Wisconsin Dells, which was truly a great time, but - it wasn't the tropical getaway we were hoping for. In May, we'll be going to Curacao and staying in an awesome resort. Hotwire is my friend!
So I need to somehow get skinny and yet keep reading all the books. Audiobooks on the treadmill?
Since we last talked, I've read five books the good old fashioned way. That's a lot to review, so I am going to keep myself to two sentences, I promise!
Food Rules: An Eater's Manual by Michael Pollan
Really good quick read to help keep you locked in to a better way of eating with simple rules. For example, don’t eat cereal that turns your milk colors (sound advice, but no fun!)
Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane
Good family drama. Also, someone gets shot in the face.
Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best in the World by Timothy Ferriss
Read this one, as it is a new favorite book of mine for sure!!!! Although it lost a point or two with me because it skews to include a few too many start-up techie types who found fame and then found Transcendental Meditation.
Watership Down by Richard Adams
Rabbits on an adventure to find a new home and promptly on a new adventure to find lady rabbits! I volleyed back and forth between loving my new rabbit friends and being like, “I just can’t EVEN with these rabbits right now.”
Piecing Me Together by Renee Watson
Young adult book tackling race relations, class relations, mentorship and more in a captivating way. The revelations within these pages aren’t anything you haven’t already read but it’s worth a read and definitely worth handing to your daughter.
Next up: Another great nonfiction book on my phone, and a college friendship story on my nightstand. How about you?
Mom of four, wife of one. By day I fund-raise with coffee, by night I read with wine and chocolate.
