This is where I share my favorite quotes from the books I am or have been reading. It’s been a while, since I shared one of these.Continue reading
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is about books that have numbers in their title.
The only book that I have read this year with numbers in the title is:
I read a bunch more numbered books in 2018:
Seven Husbands was definitely my favorite from that bunch. See my review here.
Here are two from my TBR of 214:
Happy time flying by!
In May I finished 11 books. This was only possible because 4 of them were already underway when the month began, and because there were A LOT of play-off basketball games that my husband wanted to watch. (YAY!)

This is where I share quotes from books I have recently or am currently reading. Hopefully they will make you want to read them, too!
There might not be a meaning to the world, or in it, but that does not mean that what we do has no meaning.Holy Sister by Mark Lawrence
Every person is important, at least in the way they affect the people around them. I believe everyone should do their best to be kind.
The fight matters. But in the end it is never truly won or lost, and victory lies in discovering that we are bigger than it is.Holy Sister by Mark Lawrence
How I wish my kids would understand how unworthy most things are of the fight we put up for those things. For example, my 3 year old pushed the 1 year old off of the train table because he was worried the 1 year old would destroy the puzzles he had been working on. I asked him what was more important, the puzzle or the brother and surprisingly he answered his brother was more important, but was still reluctant to apologize.
All leaves must fall in time, she had said. The lives we lived fall away from us, but something remains, something that is part of the treeHoly Sister by Mark Lawrence
We may change our leaves many times over our lifetimes but the core of us, the part that makes us who we are will always be there.
…she told me not the law… but our history and our stories, the things she knew gave flesh to the bones of our law. She also knew that we could not understand the intent of the lawgivers unless we understood the minds that created the law. She said the stories were the keys that gave you entrance to those minds.Forever Wolf by Maria Vale
It’s so easy to misinterpret a law if you don’t consider its intentions. In this book “pack law” is everything, but the interpretation is what causes strife. I think this is also true in the real world.
But if there’s one thing I know, it’s that the future is a void that is filled by the present, it wasn’t possible that you wouldn’t be my future too. You did what you thought you had to and left. I did what I thought I had to and stayed.Forever Wolf by Maria Vale
…awwww. ❤ *sniff*
It was overdue but I fear we went a bit too short. He was great, though. My husband used the “silent” clippers and I just held him in my arms.
Top Ten Tuesday : Rainy Day Reads
Top Ten Tuesday is organized by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Rainy day reads”
Some for the kids…
My kids are “afraid” of thunderstorms and it helps them to about what’s happening outside. The Berenstain Bear book only has 1-2 pages on rain and one one thunderstorms but it was requested several times over the last few days.
Books that transport you far away from the rain:
It could be worse, you could be stuck in a frozen land of ice and snow…
Top Ten Tuesday is organized by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Since moving house and starting potty training and a million other reasons, I haven’t had as much time to read (or post!). Still, these are 10 of the many books I would love to read this spring.Continue reading
I’m trying really hard to get this post done before February ends, but time is passing me by so quickly it’s hard to keep up. I’ve split this post into 4 sections: Life / My Books / Kids Books / Discussion QuestionContinue reading
