Do you keep a reading journal? I started in January after I took a fantastic bullet journaling course offered by @annebogel, and it's become my best reading companion. I keep track of the books I read, as well as my rating of them, but I also have several different sections for other part of my reading life. I highly recommend this way of tracking things (I still use @goodreads and #50bookpledge) and would be happy to answer any questions or give advice on what's worked for me. #mmdreadingchallenge2017 #readingjournal

Been cocooning at home before the big adventure. If It's not boxes and cleaning, I'm reading or watching the Tour de France. Snapped a photo of my last 20 books read (of 31 for the year) on the #50bookpledge.ca site. Thanks for the awesome recommendation of This Is How It Always Is @annemmackenzie . @kristinsnaps If you read one novel, make it this one! Your reflections on fluidity kept singing in my brain as I read it ❤️

Nothing like a sleepless five hour flight to finish this book by @susinnielsen

#harrypotter and the deathly hallows - I sure do love this series. And it's fun to re-read. A bit alarming that I now sometimes side with the teachers instead of the adventurous young wizards... 17/50 📚

MOST RECENT

cuddled up in bed with a green tea + this new memoir #abeautifulterriblething by jen waite, about love, marriage and betrayal. 🍵📚 i mostly read memoirs about love and loss + after starting this tonight, i'm reminded why i gravitate towards them. because how amazing it is that we can hit our lowest of lows, our heart broken, feeling beside ourselves. and yet, as time passes and life goes on and we survive, i'm amazed and transfixed by the humans ability to move forward and survive. 💕 this story is one we've heard all before: wife checks husbands emails, finds something she wishes she hadn't. he convinces her she's wrong {they just had a baby 3 weeks ago! it's just her hormones!} but then she see's his recent uber bills that show his daily rides home from work, only to see the rides go to williamsburg before they go to their house.

it's written in a first person account in two back and forth narratives: before, and after. i doubt i'll get any sleep until i make it to the very last sentence on the very last page of this raw, gripping, devastating tale. 💔

thank you @penguincanada for the recommendation + for the copy. 😙

I finished this book in less than 24 hours – yes it was that good!  It was a light read and given my background, easy to understand the characters and know what the next line was going to be.
.
.
The book highlights Nisha, a Tamil-Canadian struggling to appease her parents and their traditional views. As such, she is very focused on her academics and avoids the dramatic complications of high school friendships, dating and other teenage adventures.  Often times throughout the book, Nisha took me back to high school and the struggles faced by the children of the 90s. An avid writer, Nisha turns to her anonymous blog, “Confessions of a Sri-Lankan Girl”, where she scripts everything she wishes she can tell her parents.
.
.
All the normalities of “growing up brown” is beautiful captured in this book. The book follows Nisha as she explores her teen crush with a non-Tamil boy in her class while remaining to be mindful of her parent’s cultural ways. But she can’t stop pushing every button possible as she tries to break free of her parents cultural grasp – from choosing her high school courses to when/where to apply for university.  You don’t know unless you try, right?
.
.
I would have like the book to explore a bit more on her parents understanding/realization of her inter-racial relationship with Todd especially after a few scenarios being presented in the beginning surrounding other teenage girls who were dating and explicitly talking about the differences between Tamil boys and girls dating.
Part of the Real Love collection of young adult romance novels, this much needed story outlining cultural diversity, is a definite read and will make you shake your head at the reality of the storyline.

I look forward to your next piece, @tashabean66!

#book28 of #booklist2017 was a bit of a letdown! For starters, it drags! And then, it's about two loserly protagonists who have zero depth and subzero personalities! Two graduates fresh out of college set out to discover their lives and loves amidst the backdrop of the market crash and recession, set in typical, stereotypical #nyc Sorry #annapitoniak you kinda bored me with #thefutures #booklove #booklover #bookblogger #bookreview #instabook #instabookreview #instabookshelf #bookworm #booknerd #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramfeature #50bookpledge #50bookchallenge #50booksin2017 #thesavvyreader

Boom boom pow! Finished another one.

Fascinating read. I understand better why the American defense budget is so damn big.

#SCIENCE.

I also admire Mary Roach for all of her #research and work. Admirable woman.

Probably the laziest book photo I've taken but anyway book #22. It was weird reading a book of a film I've watched so many times I could picture most chapters in my head exactly how they're said by little Nicolas Hoult and Hugh Grant... also 2/3 of the way through realised I'd read this before so my new book combo is over. •

We all go through a slump in our lives as we juggle all the wonderfulness life has to offer - that's okay - the key is getting back on track.  I still pledge to finish reading 50 books by the end of the year even if I'm currently 12 books behind schedule!

An explosion. Suitcase from the explosion lands in the backyard. A mystery letter. Cursive writing with the sole word "Beloved" on the envelope. Monogrammed handkerchiefs. Two grandmothers. Two grandchildren. A step-mother, who is old enough to be your sister. A 10-year old half-brother. How this closed case brings together these characters to a lovely home in Beaufort, South Carolina and they weave together the missing pieces of this case surrounded by the sound of glass.

On a side note, whatever happened to handkerchiefs being a thing? #TimeToBringThatBack

#justfinishedreading El Deafo, my 40th book for 2017. It is a graphic novel and it is a YA book, but it has a powerful message and such a great storyline. Check it out!

#rulesofcivility by #amortowles - a year in the life of Katey Kontent, a young secretary in 1938 who finds herself schmoozing with the upper class of New York society. *****************************
I adored the lead character and found her story very intriguing. And The appendix - The Young George Washington's Rules of Civility & Decent Behaviour in Company and Conversation - offered me many tips on interacting with people. A favourite... "labour to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire called Conscience." *****************************
