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

Finished the 2nd novel in The Dark Tower series today! Love the raw, imagination and brutality of it. King pulls no punches, looking forward to reading more of his works. #amreading #thedarktower #books #22ndbookthisyear #50bookpledge

Time to pop the champagne for BIG SKYE LITTLETON's pub day! Wooooot! 🍾 I've been a major Elisa Lorello fan since her debut, FAKING IT, and I'm looking forward to getting started on her latest novel, tonight. In a world that's a bit stressful at the moment, I love when books can take me away for a while, and Elisa's books totally have feel-good vibes. πŸ’“ So if you're in the mood for some warm fuzzies, check out the description and pick up a copy today! πŸ“–

Skye Littleton said goodbye to her job, her best friend and her home in Rhode Island to start over in Billings, Montana, with Vance Sandler, a gorgeous guy she met online. On her cross-country flight, Scott shares her happy story with her seatmate, Harvey Wright, a Billings resident who knows Vance β€” and his reputation for heartbreak. Harvey's infuriating advice to Skye? Go home.
..
..
When Skye arrives, she discovers that Vance has changed his mind and wants nothing to do with her. Despite the setback, Skye is determined to rebuild her life and begin a new chapter in Montana's largest city, which sometimes feels like a small town. With Harvey's help, Skye finds a jobβ€”and a passion for organizing closets and clearing out clutter. But as she grows closer to Harvey, she finds herself homesick for her former life. Could Harvey be her future, or is she his chance at revenge? Can Skye finally trust her own heart enough to let it show her the way home?

#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 πŸ“š

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 ❀️

"We all live some form of Option B. This book will help us all make the most of it." @sherylsandberg, COO of Facebook.

A true statement - we all do live some form of Option B, or it's looming in the back of our minds.Β  I've always thought about my Option B. Why? My mom. Widowed at 29, she had no choice but to put Option B into gear without even having had the chance to think about it.Β  She kicked the hell out of it so much so that I didn't even know that parenting was a two-person role until I was 10. "The only reality I have known is growing up with a single mother who was not one by choice - that was her Option B"

Until you have to exercise your Option B - maximize the crap out of Option A (whatever that may be) - establish traditions, laugh a little, write down the joys in your life, make time for friends, have cry breaks, be upfront about your failures, forgive yourself, and its OK to ask for help.

Everybody dies, but not everyone lives. I'm risk adverse, a penny pincher, a planner, like certain things a certain way etc...over the last few years, I've started to loosen up a bit (still learning). Make time to do things you love, even if it's alone, life doesn't wait for anyone.

#48 of my #50bookpledge
Totally going to binge read everything @lindseykelk has ever written
#wewereonabreak #lindseykelk #bookaddict #bookstagram #bookish #bibliophile

My fiftieth book of the year was @rupikaur_ 's #milkandhoney πŸ₯›πŸ and damn, what a read. So many gentle reminders of the importance of self-love, and of loving each other. #bookstagram #currentlyreading #50bookpledge #levelup #poetry #rupikaur #selfcare

I rarely read authors back-to-back, simply because sometimes the writing style is the same but Colleen Hoover just grabs me in first 23 lines of this book.
.
.
I’ve never wanted 2 people to break-up with their current relationships so they can finally act on the electrifying connection between them.
.
.
Music is definitely a pathway to the heart and it’s beautifully explained in this book. The book has song lyrics along with the story line as one of the main characters is a guitar player and when I started reading, I mentally told myself that I would skip those pages – but oh how hard it was to when it’s placed on all the right pages.
.
.
She thinks she has the perfect life – a dedicated student, a job that she loves on the side, a great boyfriend of 2 years and living with her best friend. He lives in the building across the courtyard, and every day at 8pm they connect through music. He plays his guitar and she adds her own words to the songs he plays. Her perfect bubble breaks when she finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her.Β  The mystery music man presents her a proposition – write music for her and live rent free in his spare room. As they create more music together, childhood secrets are revealed, personal struggles are shared, and they leave the readers hoping for their maybe, someday.

#thenameofthewind by Patrick Rothfuss - the first in The Kingkiller Chronicle series. The high fantasy tale of a young boy living with a theatre troupe who grows up to be a powerful magician, and a hunted and haunted man. ************************************************
Great read! Full of action, great storytelling and an intriguing protagonist. Thanks @secretasianhp for the recommendation. Does anyone have book two? ************************************************ 35/50πŸ“š#50bookpledge #50bookchallenge #bookworm #bookstagram #bookhoarder

This book guttered me, to the core. Rape culture in sports is a huge issue and this book explores a serious issue through the eyes of many different characters in a small town that has bred male hockey players who always win and take what they want, with no consequences for their actions. Brutal, serious read with the small town heart that lets a glimmer of light through. "Cherry trees always smell of cherry trees"

Ignore my absolute ham hand but book #25 was a good'un. Life affirming, optimistic and full of positivity. I didn't realise it was non-fiction and only bought it because of the great reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. Also this is the halfway mark for the #50bookpledge so yeah that's probably not happening. β€’

Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell (1937)
30/50
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

You should read this if you're not familiar with the Old South and the Civil War. I think in turn of recent events it's incredibly important to learn and move forward. Personally, I think I only ever knew more about it from having watched films like Gone With The Wind, Jezebel & Cold Mountain - it's nothing we ever learned at school. When you see in the news about Charlottesville and the statue of General Lee - note that only referenced he is a character in this book. Following what seems to be a chosen theme/area Scarlett O'Hara is very much the anti-heroine being selfish, spiteful and spoiled throughout but yet as the reader we always want to will her forward and to succeed and perhaps it's no irony that a book entirely about survivalism has done exactly that and even in our always changing world is the most read book in America after the bible and the most successful film also (if you factor in inflation).
.
You shouldn't read this if you've got a reading goal to keep 😝 I was 3 books ahead of schedule when I started this and now I'm 2 books behind! The only slight setback for me was, that having watched and loved the film so many times, you realise how much of a "bible" the book was to the scriptwriters - so if you're like me everything from the film automatically replays in your head and is distracting. I also had Max Steiner's score playing in my head throughout the whole time! But I guess the moral of this story is always read the book first.
