What I’m Reading Right Now. 01.17.18

Antique Feather Copper Pen Stem Metal Nibbed Pen Writing Quill LL-14We’ve had snow days, snow days and more snow days here.  This makes me happy when we are all home together with nothing to do but be together with nowhere pressing to be.  Togetherness does cut into my reading time, but I’ll take it.

Here’s what I’ve been reading this week.

FICTION

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

I picked this up at the library last week.  I’ve only just started it, and I know absolutely nothing about it, but it’s interesting so far.  Have you read it?  What did you think?


PURSE BOOK

Living Well, Spending Less by Ruth Soukup

If you spend any time waiting, you need a purse book.  Standing in line at the post office, at the grocery store, in the dentist’s office, on the metro, any time you are just waiting, whip out your purse book and take yourself away to another place entirely.  Yes, you can mindlessly check Facebook, or twitter, but wouldn’t you rather be in a book?

Still keeping this one in my purse.  It’s so good!

COOKBOOK

The Pioneer Woman Cooks Come and Get It! by Ree Drummond

I also spied with my little eye at the library, the Pioneer Woman’s new cookbook.  It.is.Amazing.  I love it.

Look at this yumminess.  I LOVE bread.


MAGAZINES

My magazines.  You know my love of a real magazine.  These are the ones that I had on my nightstand this week.

All of the ones below are on sale right now for $5.00!  I love them.

What I’m Reading Right Now. 01.09.18

Don't Let the Muggles Get You Down Glass Coffee Mug - Makes a Great Gift for HP Fans!

Ahhhh, January, everything starts to slow down and I’m ready for it.  Not to mention we have 8 (eight!!) people in our family with birthdays this month, which makes it a pretty impressive month in my opinion.  Happy birthday to all my people in January.

I am slowly, very slowly carving out more reading time.  Are you?  Here’s what I’ve been reading.

DC Comics Wonder Woman Packable ToteFICTION

Hardcore Twenty-Four by Janet Evanovich

Oh, Stephanie Plum.  How you entertain us.  I always enjoy this set of books, they are a funny, fast and delightful series that I always look forward to.  If you have never read any of these books, DON’T start with this one.  Go all the way back to One for the Money.

COOKBOOK

CRAVE! by Cooking Light

Liv almost always asks for pie for her birthday cake.  Usually it’s cheesecake.  This year she wants strawberry cheesecake and I found a beautiful version in my copy of this cookbook.  It doesn’t matter that the recipe is for cherry cheesecake!  I’ll post the recipe if it turns out!

What I’m Reading Right Now. 12.31.17

Vandor Dr. Seuss 14-Ounce Tritan Water Bottle (17275)Christmas!  I love this time of year.  I hope that you have had the chance to slow down, be with your people, eat lot’s of yummy foods and savor the season and Jesus.  Comfort and Joy.  Now I have God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen running through my head.  If you want to see a cool version by Pentatonix go here.  It’s awesome.

I have carved very little time out in the last few weeks to read.  Spending time with the ones you love can seriously cut into reading time.  But, my books aren’t going anywhere and my sweet, sweet family will not always be here for me to love on.  Priorities people.  I do have them!

Marvel Comics All Over Print Knapsack Backpack Bookbag NewI did however sneak in a few minutes or twenty every night before I fell asleep.  Bedtime.  It’s for reading, right!?  Here’s what I’ve been reading.

FICTION

Year One by Nora Roberts

I have been impatiently waiting for this book to come out.  You know my love of a good Nora Roberts book.  I don’t want to give ANYTHING away, so I’ll be very vague.  First.  I liked it, and I will go so far to say it’s not her typical book.  I will also say that I thought parts of it felt…..rushed.  I’m going to reserve a true judgement of it and reread it in the deep winter when I am avoiding scrubbing my floors.  I’ll hide in my room with this book and then decide.


PURSE BOOK

If you spend any time waiting, you need a purse book.  Standing in line at the post office, at the grocery store, in the dentist’s office, on the metro, any time you are just waiting, whip out your purse book and take yourself away to another place entirely.  Yes, you can mindlessly check Facebook, or twitter, but wouldn’t you rather be in a book?

I am still keeping this one in my purse.  It’s so good!

COOKBOOK

The Bread Machine Gourmet by Shea MacKenzie

I tried out a new recipe on my unsuspecting family at Christmas.  It was good, but I think it’s needs a lot of tweaking.  It was not through the fault of the book though.  There are some amazing looking recipes in this little book.  You should check it out.

Bread.  How I love thee.  Yum.

What I’m Reading Right Now. 12.12.17

I love you Like A Hobbit Loves Second Breakfast 11 Ounces Coffee Mug Willcallyou

Life.  It gets in the way of reading, I tell you.  Everything feels like it’s been in warp speed lately and it’s eating away at my reading time.  Not good, people.  Not good at all.

Denton managed to crack a tooth, by eating, of all things and we’ve gone to dentist’s and doctor’s and Urgent Care’s and root canal specialist’s and round and round and round it seems.  I’ll give you an update about all that soon.  It’s a doozy of a story that’s not over yet.

Image result for harry potter house crest sockHere’s what I eeked out a slice of time to read over the past couple of weeks.

FICTION

The Chemist by Stephanie Meyer

The Chemist by [Meyer, Stephenie]If you looked at the author of this book and you didn’t like the whole vampire, werewolves love triangle of her other hit books, you may decide that you aren’t going to even give this book a try.  At least that’s what I thought.  Ahem.  This book, in my humble opinion, knocks it out of the park.  I really, really liked it.  Just pretend that you’ve never heard of those other books, and you’ll enjoy it that much more!


PURSE BOOK

I am LOVING this book.  She is so genuine.  You should definitely check this one out!

COOKBOOK

Fight Back With Food by Editors of Reader’s Digest

Another gorgeous full color cookbook.  This one is packed FULL of good info on food I love too.  For instance, Denton has always wondered how I made it to adulthood with dying of scurvy, or some other dreadful disease.  Did you know that potatoes are full of Vitamin C?  I didn’t either!  That’s why I’m not dead!  All I ate in high school was potatoes, morning, noon and night.  Seriously!  Anywho, this is an awesome book, you should get yourself a copy, pronto.

Roasted Harvest Vegetables.  I’m in love.  Doesn’t that look lovely?

What I’m Reading Right Now. 11.29.17

ANNE OF GREEN GABLES Lucy Maud Montgomery Clay Mini Book Expandable Bangle Bracelet by Book Beads

Well, it’s been a while.  This is such a busy time of year.  I can’t even remember what we’ve done.  I know that we went home to see my family.  Denton cracked a tooth, eating something completely innocuous that turned into a nightmare.  I’ll tell you all about it when I can remember my name.  All of that to say, I’ve not had many moments to hide in my room with a book.  Or a magazine.  Or to read the back of the toilet paper plastic.

Things have slowed down, very slightly this week though.  Here’s what I read when I found a minute.

FICTION

The Forever Queen by Helen Hollick

I am already halfway through this book and I am loving it.  This time period (1002 – 1042) is utterly fascinating to me.  I absolutely would not want to be transported back there, but it’s so, so compelling to read about.  This is the best way to read history in my opinion.  Take a book that has been very well researched and turn it into a captivating story and you have gold.  Excellent!


COOKBOOK

Raglan Road by Kevin Dundon Neil Cubley

You know I can’t resist a beautiful cookbook.  This one is gorgeous.  It has so many, many lovely recipes that I want to try.  I’ll keep you posted.

Roasted Carrot and Garlic Soup.  Yes, please.  Doesn’t that sound divine?

MAGAZINES

My magazines. You know my love of a real magazine. These are the ones that I had on my nightstand this week.

HGTV, Food Network, O Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, Country Living, Better Homes and Gardens, and Rachel Ray Everyday are all on sale right now for $5.00!  I love them.

By the way I love this purse!!
