Stacking up the #weekendreading #idratherbereading . 1. @annebogel lovely new collection of essays about the reading life. 2. Pride & Prejudice because it’s been 20 years and my high school girlfriends and I are feeling nostalgic. @jecca_lianne 3. Surviving the Applewhites was a favorite read aloud in my classroom but I’m loving it even more with my kids. 4. The Read Aloud Family probably would have saved me when I homeschooled. Now it encourages me to still make reading part of our family culture. 5. The Guernsey Literary snd Potato Peel Pie Society bc #readthebookbeforethemovie 6. Frog and Toad for my struggling third grader who loves whimsy. #bookstack #bookstagram #weekendreads #familyreads #weekend #bookworms

IT’S HERE!!! 😍 Huge thanks to @readbakerbooks and @annebogel for the advanced free copy of this beautiful book! I am part of the launch team and I have been anxiously awaiting its arrival all week! I squealed when I got the mail after work today and now I finally get to dive in! This releases September 4, so definitely preorder a copy before then (link in my bio)! Anne is a lover of all things books and I already know that my bookworm heart is going to fall in love with this book! . . While you await the release of this amazing book, also check out Anne’s other book, Reading People, and her podcast @whatshouldireadnext because she is seriously SO awesome! . . . #bookstagram #book #bookworm #bookshelf #booklover #booknerd #IdRatherBeReading #annebogel #reading #bookish

Rules of Civility of Amor Towles . This book was mentioned many times on the @annebogel podcast @whatshouldireadnext so I was definitely intrigued. I listened to this on audio and got completely sucked into the story, although in the end I wasn’t exactly sure how I felt about it! I definitely liked it, but I also had some mixed feelings. . This books follows Katey, her best friend Evelyn, and rich, young banker, Tinker through their lives in 1938 Manhattan. We see how the events of one night can create a ripple effect lasting not just the rest of the year, but will change their lives forever. . I’ve also heard great things about Towles’ A Gentleman in Moscow. If you’ve read both, did you have a preference? . . . #book #books #bookstagram #bookstagramers #booklove #fortheloveofreading #bookcollector #reading #bookish #instabooks #goodreads #igreads #goodreadschallenge #bookworm #bookishfeatures #bookishfeature #booksandshares #idratherbereading #beautifulbooks #culturetripbooks #unitedbookstagram #booksandbeans #booksandcoffee #rulesofcivility #amortowles #bookreview

"Best not to look back. Best to believe there will be happily ever afters all the way around - and so there may be; who is to say there will not be such endings? Not all boats which sail away into darkness never find the sun again, or the hand of another child; if life teaches anything at all, it teachers that there are so many happy endings that the man who believes there is no God needs his rationality called into serious question.” ― Stephen King, It . . . Yes, I posted IT again. Is there a problem 😚. I love this book and although 11/22/63 its a first place now, I'm gonna post 300 pictures of it at every damn angle. So be prepared. . . .

outside soaking up the sun and a book ☀️📖

An afternoon at the salon gives me time for some reading. I don’t remember which book podcast I heard about this book on but I’m glad I started it. It’s been fun so far and I have a feeling I’m going to be sucked into reading the entire series. #idratherbereading

| @putnambooks #partner | I missed celebrating this beauty’s book birthday the other day - but I DID take a picture of it! I really wanted a chance to start reading Where the Crawdads Sing this week while I was on vacation; August seems like the perfect month to dive into this story. I didn’t finish my other books in time, but I still hope to pick it up in the next couple days. Is this book on your radar!? From everything I’ve heard IT SHOULD BE! ☀️

Book 71/50 for the year: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ In a futuristic dystopia where climate change has ravaged the US and there appears to be 2 different nations at civil war, Day and June are on opposite sides until they are united by a stunning revelation about the government. I waffled on this one between 3 and 4 stars but in the end I didn’t want to give it a 3 Star review because o felt it deserved more than that. Maybe I’m spoiled by the author’s newest novel, Warcross, which was amazing, but Legend just didn’t hit home for me or keep me as interested. I will be reading the next book because I’d like to see where we go from here, but I’ll be doing it while I eagerly await Warcross #2! #TRReadingGoals2018 #CurrentlyReading #IdRatherBeReading

Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller: ⭐⭐ • I've been putting off reviewing this one (reviews called it things like 'subtle', 'beautiful', 'luminous' - I did not find it any of those). It was SO different to what I was expecting that it really disappointed me, and I didn't want to judge it too harshly against the book I'd imagined it would be. At the end of the day, though, I give stars based on enjoyment, and I didn't enjoy this at all; I might've still gone three stars, as it was moving, but on the whole it left me feeling grubby and the ending was terrible, so two stars. • 📖 #theunreadshelfproject2018 - this has been on my tbr for ages, so I'm at least glad it's off! 📖 #inflameslit - coming of age 📖 #augustbookstagram18 - emotional • #ourendlessnumbereddays #clairefuller #notforme #booksoutside #readyourshelf #readyourowndamnbooks #allweatherreviews

🌟 Book Review 🌟 I loved A Man Called Ove, so I had to pick this one up, and it did not disappoint! I love Backman's writing. It is beautiful and poignant, even while dealing with such a difficult and ugly topic. I've heard Us Against You is just as good, so I want to pick that one up soon!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟 . #beartown #bookreview #fredrikbackman #hockey #smalltownlife #booksandnature #summerreading #augustreads #moments #friyay
