Happy National Read a Book Day! Today is one of my favorite days because I am a total book nerd. I love books so much that I totally buy more than I’ll ever be able to read. Like many other things…they’re all on my to-do list.
I often daydream about having my own library. Just the thought of surrounding myself with a room full of hundreds of books soothes my soul!
I’m so proud that I am raising readers too. My kids have come to expect bedtime stories. Most nights I more than happily oblige.
Then I put them to bed and get my read on! Here are a few on that ever-growing list of mine and a few that I’ve already read and greatly enjoyed.
Books For You
one | sharp objects
Read the book before you watch the show on HBO. I should have taken this advice. I fished the show last week. It was ridiculously addictive and creepily perfect. I’m sure the book is even better. I’ve purchased it and it’s next on my list!
two | girl, wash your face
My favorite quote is “Comparison is the death of joy and the only person you need to be better than is the one you were yesterday.” I am confident that you’ll escape from the lies that keep you from the joyful, cheerful, mindful life you are meant to live after you read this one.
three | the dream daughter
I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of this book. I read it in one weekend. It seems like forever since I have read a book so quickly. I was mesmerized, transported, and just plain smitten. It goes on sale on October 2nd. Pre-order it. Seriously.
four | the perfect mother
This book is a great psychological thriller that tackles motherhood, friendship, and the delicate responsibility of taking care of children while still being oneself. Set to be made into a movie soon, I’m so glad I read the book first.
