Sarah @thehireader  challenged me to post my #stackofshame , so I figured the pile of books I brought to the cottage with me yesterday was as good a stack as any! The only reason I have for not having read these yet is simply that I accumulate books faster than I can read them, so I’m learning to accept that I’ll never be without an ever-growing TBR pile. I’m hoping to cross a few of these off my list by the end of August, but I also have a few more on the way (hence the never-ending cycle...) 📚 . Friends, show me your stacks! I’ve tagged a few of you here but consider this an open invitation 😊 I’d love to see what you’ve got in your collections, and let me know what you’d really love to cross off your list by the end of the month!

IT’S BOOKSTORE ROMANCE DAY!!!!💕✨I have the day off, and I can’t wait to explore the shelves of my local romance-friendly bookstore with @bubblebathsandbooks.  I’ll share my haul with you this afternoon! . How are you celebrating today?! . . . . . . . . . . #bookstagram  #bookblogger  #cozyview  #hygge  #hyggeblogger  #bookstagrammer  #bookishview  #bibliophile  #cozyreads  #booksbooksbooks  #summerreads  #summerreading  #bookstoreromanceday  #romancestagram  #romancelandia  #booksandbeans  #booksandcoffee 

As August begins to wind down, I’ve been thinking about some of my favourite reads this summer, so I wanted to share a little love today for a newly discovered author + series (thank you Kerry @linesiunderline !), The Penderwicks series by Jeanne Birdsall. Each book takes you on a cozy, quirky adventure with the Penderwick sisters, their father, and their beloved dog, Hound. I’ll be settling in today to read the third book, The Penderwicks at Pointe Mouette, with dear friends Cate @catebutler  and Katie @lifebetweenwords.  . If you love Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott, and L.M. Montgomery, I highly recommend checking them out. Birdsall eloquently intertwines the universal theme of childhood self-discovery with wonder and whimsy, as each sister’s accomplishments and obstacles are portrayed with humour and sensitivity. Her fresh and contemporary take on classic themes is pure delight and I’ve been so enjoying my summertime with these sweet sisters. . What were some of your favourite reads this summer? Any new favourite authors discovered?

What’s a book you’ve DNF’d??!?⠀ ⠀ I know I know...people rave about this one but I honestly just couldn’t get into it and I attempted to read it twice.

THE DUKE AND I 💕I just turned the last page on the epilogue. It read like a classic, Quinn’s insights into her characters’ psyches were astute, and Simon is the GOAT. However, there was one scene that made me very uncomfortable. I can’t spell it out here since it happens close to the end, but it has me rethinking the book a bit. It raises a question for me, if there’s one scene that makes me uncomfortable how does that affect my overall perception of the novel? Should I dismiss it entirely? Does it even matter it was written 20 years ago? I’m not sure. I don’t have the answers. But I’ll be pondering this question for awhile. . . . . . . . . . . . #bookstagram  #bookblogger  #cozyview  #hygge  #hyggeblogger  #bookstagrammer  #bookishview  #bibliophile  #cozyreads  #booksbooksbooks  #summerreads  #summerreading  #readingbridgertons  #thedukeandi  #romancestagram  #romancelandia 

AD | I am definitely a seasonal reader and even the colour of a cover can sway my summer reads. These gorgeous peachy pink tones definitely give me summer lovin’ vibes. Here are some I’ve read and some I can’t wait to read. New research from @ebay_uk  has revealed the average Brit reads about 696 books in their lifetime. As Frank Zappa said: ‘So many books, so little time.’ I’ve had a ball talking about my summer time reading in partnership with @ebay_uk  and I’m raring to lose myself in another adventure. Go on, have a look at Wordery, their online bookshop and see which adventure you want to lose yourself in. #summerreading  #eBay 

Thanks to everyone who responded to the poll in my stories the other day for making me feel less bad about not finishing Fix Her Up 🙈 It’s my first DNF of the year and while it’s really hard for me to not see a book through to the end, it just wasn’t for me. I switched over to Love and Other Words and it’s just the kind of cozy, romantic love story I was looking for...gosh I love @christinalauren ’s writing! . What’s the last book you didn’t finish and why?

Dare I say...today’s the day I’m going to finish THE DUKE AND I. It’s been 3 weeks since I started it, much longer than it usually takes me with romance novels. Just in time for bookstore romance day this Saturday when I’m going to stock up! 💕 . Anyone else celebrating this Saturday?! . . . . . . #bookstagram  #bookblogger  #cozyview  #hygge  #hyggeblogger  #bookstagrammer  #bookishview  #bibliophile  #cozyreads  #booksbooksbooks  #summerreads  #summerreading  #bookstoreromanceday

While it seems that everyone is back to school or at least preparing for it, for me it feels as if we are still in the midst of the dog days of summer! And this little literary find seems to agree! A sing-songy tale of a hot dog looking to cool off!

Just finished this highly anticipated novel and definitely feel like it’s one I’m going to need time to digest. I feel like it was a bit overhyped, but was beautifully written with a satisfying ending. For me the first 100 or so pages were a bit slow but flew through the second half in one night. Worth a shot as a coming of age, Southern murder mystery. #summerreading  #bookstagram  @authordeliaowens

Since the fall semester is back in session, I don't think I can classify this as #summerreading , so consider this book #1 of my #fallreading . It's a busy semester, but I need to read. Need. It's my stress reliever. Anyway...LOVED this book. It's a whodunit that actually fooled me. Friends spending a weekend together at a secluded lodge and one gets murdered...typical story layout with a atypical ending. Go check it out!

Today was #bookstoreromanceday ! I ventured out to @astoriabookshop  and saw this CUTEEE display. Recognize any books here? 😏 . . . In some more fun news, did you hear our third episode is out now?! It’s available on Apple Podcasts, GooglePlay, SoundCloud & Spotify 😊 we hope you’ll rate, review & subscribe 🙏❤️

Inspired from the last book I read (the Alchemist) I picked up a dusty copy of The Product Book. . . I have always found Product Management interesting and always tend to be inclined to it but never fully pursued it. I gave myself so many excuses and reasoning, all while continuing to grow in my profession. While I was reading the Alchemist, I realized my hesitance is truly because of a fear of failure and the unknown. On my journey to find clarity. #journey  #selfdiscovery

Book Review! What can I say about @writer.daniellesteel  Her books never disappoint! I loved reading Lost and Found. It’s a story that will make you look into your own closest relationships. It’s a story about never being to old to find love, traveling around to get clarity on decisions made years ago even mending relationships with those you love the greatest. But most of all, not staying lost even when accidents happen because it may open up your world so that you can be found. #bookstagram  #summerreading  #book  #lostandfound  #daniellesteel  #read  #bookclub  #fictionaddiction  #bookjunkie

Sydni wrapped us her #summerreading  assignment from @chrissyteigen  and Cravings with two more recipes. She said, ““For my second dish I made the Mac and cheese. It tasted really good and was a good second recipe to make. The breadcrumbs added on top was a good finishing touch. The hardest part was combining all the cheeses together with the milk. My friend’s family really enjoyed it! 🧀 For my third and final recipe I made the pad grapow chicken with rice. I served it to my family and they really enjoyed it. The rice was easy to make, and in the future I would add more seasonings to give more flavor to the chicken. Otherwise really enjoyed making this dish!” 🍛

Well, I’m late to the party, but now I can say I’ve read The Thorn Birds. I remember the TV miniseries being a really big deal back in the 80’s and the novel was one of the most scandalous and talked about books to hit the shelves in its day. It was ok, but I didn’t love it. The writing is very descriptive and really paints a vivid picture of life on an Australian sheep station. Unfortunately, there was something missing in the way the characters were portrayed which prevented me from liking any of them very much. I thought I would Ike it a lot more than I actually did. #thethornbirds  #bookstagram  #readingchallenge  #summerreading  #thornbirds 

Sooo I said I was going to start reading ASK AGAIN, YES next but then life happened 🤷🏼‍♀️ I decided to finish RECURSION instead (I’m still confused in such a good way) and then realized my vacation down the shore was starting in less than two days. I have a list of books I want to try to read while I’m away so I decided to take two days off from reading and binge watch EUPHORIA and HANDMAIDS TALE. Best decision I’ve ever made. Now I’m at the beach and going to start this creepy read! I’ve heard a lot of good things about THE WHISPER MAN so I’m ready to start vacation off on the right page (pun intended)! . . . . #books  #bookstagram  #igbooks  #bookaddict  #booknerd  #bookporn  #crime  #crimefiction  #thriller  #mystery  #reading  #currentlyreading  #bookworm  #crimenovel  #readcrimefiction  #photography  #bookaholic  #bookstagramfeature  #bibliophile  #bookfeaturepage  #summerreading  #bookaholic  #booksofig  #booksharks  #augustreading  #thewhisperman  #alexnorth  #bookofthemonth  #bookofthemonthclub

Absolutely dreading turning the last page... #summerreading  #topsthelist  #treats  #readit  @authordeliaowens  thank you 🙌❤️what a story.

Abby is two for three with her #summerreading  dishes from @chrissyteigen  and Cravings. She said, “I made the Sriracha Caesar Salad from p. 64. It was a fun twist on the classic everyday Caesar and everyone and my family really enjoyed it. The most challenging part was figuring out the right amount of time to keep the croutons in the oven so that they weren’t soggy but they weren’t too crispy. I also decided to replace the red onion with red bell peppers because no one in my family like onions and I think it still worked really well. I would definitely make it again (probably request of my dad because he loved it) ! 🥗🌶 Tonight I made the Mac and Cheese with Cheesy Garlic Bread Crumbs. This is my new favorite Mac and cheese ever. It was so delicious. The most challenging part was making sure not to burn the cheese when I was melting it on the oven. I think the garlic bread crumbs added a lot to the dish and that was probably the best part. I will most certainly be making this again.”🧀👅

Malachy has got two new recipes to share from @chrissyteigen  and Cravings for his #summerreading  assignment. He says, “For the noodles at the top: I cooked Pepper’s Spicy Clams and Pasta from p. 85. I thought the meal was really good, and my family liked it a lot, as well! The clams tasted really good and the linguine had a very nice texture with all the butter. However, I thought there wasn’t enough flavoring on the pasta so overall it tasted a bit bland. My brother also noticed that the garlic tasted funny, and I think I ended up burning it, so I suggest cooking it for a minute, not the two suggested. My mom also thought it was a bit too spicy, so if you don’t like the spice definetly use less black or red pepper. Overall, I thought the dish was really good, and I l’d definetly recommend it! 🌶 For another recipe, I cooked the creamy Parmesan skillet eggs from p. 23. They were pretty good, but I definetly burnt the cheese and that kind of ruined the meal overall. I do think it was a really cool concept to eat straight from the skillet and I had fun doing it! Surprisingly, being on top of the cheese, the eggs actually cooked pretty nicely though. I also couldn’t find Parmesan Reggiano cheese like the recipe asks for, so I probably lost some of the flavor that the dish would normally have. My family had the same opinions as me, and kind of got sick of it after a few bites. Overall, I think it was a really interesting thing to try, but I don’t think I’ll make it again.”🥚

Ah, I do love a good Ruth Ware novel, and this one is excellent! I just wanted to know what was going on!

There is only room for one mother in this family... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Combining events from the past and present, Mother Knows Best by Kira Peikoff is a really enjoyable book that you’re going to want to read this fall. Main character, Claire, finds out that she has a genetic mutation that can be passed onto any future children she has. She consults a fertility doctor, Robert Nash, and takes part in a fertility experiment that combines the egg of two women (removing the genetic mutation) - two women being Claire and Dr. Nash’s assistant Jillian. Problems arise when word of the controversial experiment gets out, forcing Claire and Dr. Nash to go into hiding and Jillian to go to prison. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ten years later, fired by anger and jealousy (and maybe a small amount of psychotic behavior), Jillian is using DNA mapping to track down Claire’s child that is also genetically part her own child. And she’s hell bent on taking the child that she feels should have been hers all along. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you to @crookedlanebooks  and @bookishhq  for the #arc  of this book, which was really a fast paced, great #summerread  that I devoured in a single day. I really enjoyed the multiple points of view and the then/now sequences.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You’ll be able to get your hands on Mother Knows Best on September 10, 2019. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bookish  #book  #books  #booknerd  #bookworm  #summerreading  #bookstagram  #bookstagrammer  #bookreview  #review  #motherknowsbest  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

New book review: 1/5 stars-So disappointed in this book! I loved her first one! I was really looking forward to this book when it came out!Summary: Aimee Sinclair is a famous actress who comes home to find her husband is missing and his wallet and cell phone is on the table. She realizes the next day that her bank accounts are emptied. This story runs parallel to a story about a young girl who was kidnapped and raised in a rough home. My Thoughts: I don’t have much to say except that the last page of this book is horrid. The abuse in this book is over the top and the end of this book........I can’t. #books  #reading  #booklove  #bookstagram  #bookstagrammer  #bookblog  #bookblogger  #readinglife  #bookaholic  #lovetoread  #50booksin2019  #igbooks  #igreads  #pittsburghblogger  #summerreading  #disappointment

Mike is all done with his theee #summerreading  dishes from @chrissyteigen  and Cravings. He says, “For my first recipe I made the Dutch baby pancake. This was a really good recipe and it was a good start my cooking skills since I hadn’t cooked a lot before. It was really easily and simple but very delicious. I shared this with my friends and everyone loved it! Overall 10/10. 💯 For my second recipe I made the Chrissy’s Mac and cheese with the cheesy garlic breadcrumbs. By far out of the three recipes I made this one was my favorite! The combination of cheeses that the recipe called for was very well combined together and very flavorful. I shared this recipe with my family one night for dinner and they all loved it. 🧀 For my final recipe I made the armadillo cheesy garlic bread. This recipe was the most challenging of all the recipe because I had to stuff the bread with the cheese to make sure that it covered the entire loaf of French bread. Despite being the hardest, the recipe still turned out very good and me and my sister ate it one afternoon and it was very tasty.” 🥖

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!!! Congratulations to @readinginthemorning  - a copy of THE BIRTHDAY GIRL is coming to you soon! ... .....

Caroline is all done with her #summerreading  assignment from @chrissyteigen  and Cravings. She said, “For my second recipe I made zucchini fries. 🍟They turned out alright. It was very difficult to get the bread crumbs all around the zucchini. I made the zucchini fries for my mom because she used to make a similar recipe growing up. I think if I made them again, they would turn out better. For my last recipe I made Crispy Bacon Hash Browns from p. 31. 🥔🥓When I first finished cooking them, I didn’t think they looked very good. However, I had my mom try them with me and we both liked them. It was difficult to get the hash browns “golden brown” like the book said they should be. I had to cook it longer than the directions said. This is a recipe I would definitely make again!” 👌🏻

Not reading on a train today but in two days I’ll be reading on a plane home ☀️📖☀️ Enjoying my last few days in the Bay Area by finishing up my library books and spending time with loved ones. ☀️📖☀️ While I am excited to go back to school and catch up with friends, every new school year intimidates me as it approaches. Especially as this will be my last year of school ever, I feel increasing pressure to live every moment to the fullest and stay present. I’m hoping I can overcome my fear of new beginnings and changing pace so I can just have fun as my last year of college begins. ☀️📖☀️ Does anyone else feel this way? Any advice on approaching big life changes? ☀️📖☀️ #summer  #endofsummer  #lastdaysofsummer  #vacation  #bayarea  #sanfrancisco  #summerreading  #augustreads  #librarybook  #library  #supportlibraries  #astrangeronthebeach  #readingoutside  #morningcommutereads  #sunshine  #sunnyday  #weekend  #travel  #college  #senioryear  #backtoschool  #bookworm  #booksofinsta  #bookstagram  #amreading  #currentread 

Summer reading challenge from @canmore_public_library  📚 “A BOOK WITH SUPERNATURAL ELEMENTS” 📚 I’ve read “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children” by @ransomriggs  before, but this time I listened to the audio book in the car with big kid. As with Harry Potter, it was great revisiting the story through the eyes (ears?) of my son. Also, if you haven’t read this book, do it! It’s a weird and wonderfully intricate world. #summerreading  #summerreadinglist  #summerreadingchallenge  #authorlife  #authorsofinstagram  #writersofinstagram 

Wild Saturday nights ✨ What are you currently reading?

💗Field Notes on Love💗 - “But then I got on this train and everything changed.” - Synopsis 📖 Having just been dumped by his girlfriend, Hugo is still determined to take the train ride he and his girlfriend had planned as a last-hurrah-before-college. There’s one catch, the ticket is already booked under the name of his ex, Margaret Campbell. Enter the new Margaret C., who joins Hugo for the train ride and they both find more than they bargained for. - Review✨ This book was a sweet, cute read. It was easy to get into and a surprisingly pleasant read. I loved the storyline and I really loved the characters. It was a cute rom-com, but I didn’t have a great connection with the story or characters, which left me a bit flat. I didn’t NOT like the book, I just didn’t love it. What I did enjoy was the fact that it was a very different storyline, as some romantic/love stories are always very predictable. This one took place on a train and I really enjoyed that aspect. - The secondary characters add some depth to the story, such as Margaret’s relationship with her grandma, and Hugo’s relationship with his siblings. They aren’t a big part of the story, but they add another dimension to Mae and Hugo’s characters. Cute and fluffy quick read, if you’re looking for one.

Post Vacay library haul!! I’m already missing California 😭 but happy to be back with my puppy, even if she’s playing it cool like she didn’t miss me. Took a super long nap todaysince I only got maybe 3 15 min sessions of sleep on the plane last night, the. went to the library, out for a drink and a little shopping. Yes I’m still acting like I’m on vacay. My haul included 📖 Always Never Yours by @austins_b  @wibbs_ink  📖 Hello Girls by @skippingstones  and @emilyhenrywrites  📚 Have you read these?!

Summer reading program participants from DC and Arlington Public Libraries got to take the field tonight before the start of the Washington Nationals game! Love their last glance at down dog warm-ups! On the way in to the park, we saw a sign for yoga at tomorrow's 1:35 game. #washingtondc  #washingtonnationals  #natitude  #arlingtonpubliclibrary  #dcpubliclibrary  #baseball  #yoga  #downdog  #summerreading  #summerreadingprogram

This was one of my favorite books of the year (so far). I’m late to the party, but thanks @reesewitherspoon  and @reesesbookclub  ☺️ #bookstagram  #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine  #summerreading 

Walked into @barnesandnoble  fully intending not to buy anything...

The light reflected onto Patrick Corbin's eye contrasts the dark cloud behind...and on the field if you care about the fact that the Nats were already down 5-0 in the third inning. 🏟️☁️ At least the tickets and bobbleheads came to us for free thanks to my 9yo participating in the library summer reading program.📚 p.s. Looked up in time to see a home run! Now 5-2! ☺️⚾ #natitude  #washingtonnationals  #mlb  #baseball  #bobblehead  #stadiumlights  #light  #dark  #clouds  #summer  #summerreading

I don’t think I’ve felt this special since my aunt pasted speech bubble stickers that said things like, “Whistle while you work, AUDREY” in a Snow White book for my 5th birthday! MY NAME is on a BOOK.⁣ ⁣ Thank you so much @greenleafandplympton  for this personalized classic! And 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘛𝘶𝘳𝘯 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘚𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘸, of all books! I loved this book in college, and I’m so excited to be reading it again. ⁣ ⁣ The governess has a “Screw” loose, for sure (That was basically the title of my college essay back in the day 🤣)

Have you ever read 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff? I got it from my library recently, quite randomly, and am utterly delighted by it! My first epistolary style book was The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (also a very good read), so coming across this book has been a real treat. :)⠀ ⠀ Have you read an epistolary novel before? I'd love to hear a few to-read recommendations!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #bookstagram  #classicfiction  #whattoread  #goodreads  #instaread  #booklover  #epistolary  #booksandbeans  #bookstoinspire  #oldbooks  #vintagereads  #mybookfeatures  #readerslife  #bookflatlay  #slowlivingforlife  #booksbooksbooks  #bookishlife  #summerreading  #solovelysofree  #asecondofwhimsey  #calmversation  #smallmomentsofcalm  #pursuewhatislovely  #artofslowliving  #styleonstillness  #ofquietmoments  #simpleandstill  #imbringingsimpleback  #quietmoments 

If your child is a bit nervous about the first day of school, maybe all you need is a weekend at Camp Tiger to inspire confidence. My son, who tends to gravitate towards those books about kids with a touch of anxiety, asked me to read this to him multiple times over the last few days. I think he finds comfort in the boy, who finds his courage by the final page. Interestingly, my son believes the tiger is actually there, while I am certain the tiger is imaginary. Rocco’s illustrations are beautiful, worth spending some extra time on each page. Our own tiger, Persimmon, recommends reading Tiger Camp outside. • • • #bookstagram  #kidlit  #picturebooks  #firstdayofschool  #firstgrade  #imaginaryfriend  #secondgrade  #tigers  #summerreading  #2019books  #camptiger  #susanchoi  #johnrocco  #persimmonthecat  #catsofinstagram 

Settling in for #CosyReadingNight . This is my TBR, planning on one hour per book but we'll see how it goes! #Bookstagram  #bookish  #MyFavouriteReadathon  #ReadAThon  #CurrentlyReading  #SummerReading 

Jumping into this delicious saga next. Book one of the Dumonts series by @authorhalle.  I mean look at this cover. I’m already in love. #karinahalle  #discretion  #bookcation  #summerreading  #books  #bookstagram  #reading 

This book made me wish I went to summer camp. Another lovely story by @katucker_  A perfect summer read. #katucker  #sayyoustillloveme  #bookcation  #summerreading  #books  #bookstagram  #reading 

when you realize that the first day of school is in less than 5 days and you haven’t done the reading. 😬😬#summerreading 

Another great read from this summer. The second book in her Trickster series, Eden Robinson's Trickster Drift is a great read, and worthy follow-up to 2017's Son of a Trickster. Where that booked focused on survival and family, this book looks more closely at the idea of living life on your own terms, and going against the grain of your environment. While her protagonist Jared is male, it's Robinson's female characters that surround Jared that really shine. Each one is fully realized, with distinct voices and they are almost all positioned as mentoring characters for a Young man- exhibiting the novel's theme of leadership and mentorship. All in all, it's a great read with some very fun characters, quick wit, and a large dose of the supernatural. Pick it up if you like ghosts, strong women and coming of age tales. #books  #summerreading  #edenrobinson  #trickster  #canlit
