Welcome to my first reading roundup since baby Connor arrived!! I’m happy to report that there is still some reading happening in our house. We’re both thoroughly enjoying the nursery – mom reads while he sleeps 🙂
Work Book (for lunchtime reading):
This category is on hiatus while I’m home on maternity leave!
The Farm by Joanne Ramos – I received an ARC of this intriguing novel and am absolutely devouring it when I have the time. Women are recruited to become “Hosts” at an upscale resort where they carry babies for rich clients. Shady actions and manipulation abound!
Rooted by Banning Liebscher – This showed up on another blogger’s list and I immediately requested it from the library. This will be my second nonfiction Christian book toward my 2019 goal. It focuses on how God develops you before you can make a more visible impact on the world.
Things My Son Needs to Know About the World by Fredrik Backman – I’m halfway through this collection of short memoirs about advice he wants to give his young son. Now that I have a child of my own, some of the insights and thoughts are even more meaningful.
Around the Web:
Introducing my Used Book Shop – Since we have over 600 books in our house (and keep buying more), I thought it would be fun to start selling some of my favorites in an online book store! Check out the selection or let us know if there’s a particular book you want to read and we’ll try to hunt it down at library book sales!
Reading Harry Potter to Kids – I cannot wait to start this process with Connor!!
Mary Berry Train Ride – Afternoon tea on a train ride through the English countryside and a Mary Berry meet and greet. This sounds like heaven.
