As the winner of the most prestigious French literary award (The Goncourt Prize), it’s no surprise THE PERFECT NANNY was a brilliant read! A disturbing and taut psychological thriller with ever increasing suspense throughout, also with a whispered but screaming commentary on the intersection of class, race, and gender in Parisian society. Its hard to miss the parallels between this work of fiction and the horrific events that unfolded here in America a few years ago, when a NYC upper west side nanny murdered two young children in her care. 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤 #stackroom #2018reads #bibliophile #theperfectnanny #leilaslimani #goncourtprize #bookworm #france #paris #ptreyes #beachread #murder

After searching and searching, putting holds on particular books that I wanted to read - this book seemed like a good one! The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin. #2018reads #bookstagram #themountainbetweenus

While I appreciated the concept- a female protagonist that decides to medicate her way through a year of hibernation... and there were funny moments, mostly it just dragged on. I’m all for difficult, complicated female characters but I felt she was neither awful enough nor sympathetic enough- instead it was entertaining enough to read but not to recommend. I’m sure this will be a bit hit when in comes out in July, but it just felt safe, cynical, and predictable. #ottessamoshfegh #myyearofrestandrelaxation #penguinbooks #2018reads #instabook #bookstagram #bookworm #winterreading

“The real story—that the civil rights movement is also rooted in African-American women’s long struggle against sexual violence—has never before been written. The stories of black women who fought for bodily integrity and personal dignity hold profound truths about the sexualized violence that marked racial politics and African American lives during the modern civil rights movement.”

This, by far, is one of the best nonfiction books I’ve read in a long time. It’s not too dense, but still gets a tons of stories and research in, all the while weaving the stories of courageous black women. I think anyone and everyone can and should pick this up. There’s so much history we don’t know. But we can and should know it. And to Recy Taylor, Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer, Joan Little, Rosa Lee Coates and so many, many more named and unnamed women in this history: many thanks for the courage and heart, the valuing of self, community, and justice. Thank you for telling your truths. We have so much to learn from you.

The clarity you’ve been searching for.. may be hiding in a book. #2018Reads What are you reading?

This beautiful, tender semi-autobiographical novel is food for the soul, which can be gulped down greedily in bite sizes between stations. #whatwelose #zinziclemmons #2018reads #bookstagram #womenwriters

I had got this novel for Valentine’s Day after seeing the author, Jasmine Guillory, speaking about the story on that big screen over Target’s book section. It sounded like an intriguing, romantic read. Perfect for Valentine’s Day! I found the very last copy and bought it along with a poetry book and a book of devotionals (buy two get one free!), but I’m just now freed up to read it. So I’m really celebrating a late Valentine’s Day today rather than Presidents Day. (Also, those Dove milk chocolates my employer gave me for vday are the bomb dot com. These are the last two I have left!)

This was not my typical read, but I appreciated a lot of the comedic elements & Sedaris’ attention to detail. He does an incredible job of putting the reader in the story with bizarre metaphors and seemingly unimportant details. #2018Reads #MeTalkPrettyOneDay

2018 book #11: "Developing the Leaders around You" by John Maxwell // Leaders raise up other and future leaders. We all know that, but how is that done? This volume gives 10 essentials to get that process going, but also to find enjoyment in it. Very much a business book, but church leaders will find helpful thoughts, in my opinion, especially about elder/deacon relations. #2018reads

These bookmarks were part of a birthday gift! So I had to take one of my favorite series to photograph them! •


QOTP: what’s your favorite kind of bookmark? •

I don't normally do this, but both of these books have really gripped me in terms of their stories and narratives. I resolved to start reading more books this year, and have so far finished eight in total. These two in particular - both debuts - were wonderful. 'Caraval' by Stephanie Garber is a vividly imagined study of sisterly love and keeps you guessing all the way to the end. Katherine Arden's 'The Bear and the Nightingale' is a bildungsroman turned love letter to Russian folklore. Both contain strong relatable heroines and deserve your attention. Both also have sequels - the former's is out this may and the latter's is out now. #stephaniegarber #caraval #katherinearden #thebearandthenightingale #amreading #2018reads #debutnovel #fiction
