Sometimes you just want to read something that’s fun and relaxing. A story that’s not heavy but a story that you can relax and have fun with. Like hanging out with your best friend while you laugh and chat the day away. I love books like that and sometimes we just need to be able to curl up in our favorite chair and escape. Right now we might need that even more.
I had started watching “Little Fires Everywhere” a couple of weeks ago, right before our state started its stay-at-home order when my oldest daughter walked in the room, just 10 minutes into it, and told me I should read the book first. After I thought about it for a split second and I decided she was probably right. I also figured it was going to be any day now that NC decided to have us all stay at home so I thought a new book would be a great way to spend some of my time and then I could reward myself by binge-watching the show.
I’m so glad I went ahead and got the book. It’s great! I’m only halfway through it and can barely put it down. I can’t wait to finish it! What are you reading? Have you already read everything on your bookshelves? I’ve got a few suggestions for you.
Meet Becky Bloomwood, shopper extraordinaire. I love her and would love to have her wardrobe! It’s full of fun, like hanging out with your BFF, and love, losing it all, and finding herself. I don’t want to give it away but this is one of my favorite book series. I wish they would make it a Netflix series. Bonus! The fans are so devoted to Becky Bloomwood that Sophie Kinsella, the author is posting Becky’s Lockdown Diary on Instagram!
Next meet Bernadette Fox, one of the most fun and eccentric moms you’ll ever meet. She’s crazy smart and is she crazy or just trapped in her life? You’ll have to find out while seeing her life through her lens and her daughter’s. I absolutely love how this book was written. Escape with Bernadette to the ends of the earth.
Ready to organize all the things? This book is a must-read and it’s time for Spring Cleaning anyway. It really helped me to let go of things that I was hanging onto. Does it spark joy? Learn how to organize just about everything.
Tired of eating the same things over and over this is the perfect time to try out new recipes and learn new techniques. The thing I love about this cookbook is that most of the recipes use items you probably already have in your pantry and are really simple and easy to recreate.
What books are you reading now or looking forward to reading? I’ll need suggestions because it won’t be long and I’ll be finished with “Little Fires Everywhere”.
