Whelp, my attempt at #25infive was actually a SUCCESS this round!
📖
I ended up logging 33 hours in five days, 13 🎧, 20 📖. If my birthday hadn’t happened to land during it, things probably would have looked a little different, but since it DID, I spent just under 9 hours reading (#thegoldfinch), eating cheese, drinking LACROIX & noshing on birthday cake on the day of. Not a bad way to spend my weekend, I tell you!

Last day in the hotel @residenceinn and I definitely needed an #icedcoffee 🙈
@califiafarms
Tomorrow we move in to our new house and I know I am going to be so busy so I’m #reading as much as I can today 📖
Has anyone read this one? It grabbed me from the first page but I’m worried the ending will disappoint 😬

Look what came in the mail! I’m on the launch team for @annebogel’s new book and I got my copy yesterday. I can’t wait to dive in. Also, as a confession of my own literary sins, I’ve only read one of the books in this stack, and the bottom one I totally grabbed from a Little Free Library because it’s purple and I didn’t own any purple books. 😂 This pretty little book has a watercolor illustration of Anne’s library (which I got to see in person last year 💙), and if you preorder, you can get a downloadable copy of the print! .

🌹🌹🌹/ Book 33 of 2018 / My first finished book during @25infive For the musician or music lover, this book will strike the perfect chord for literary fiction. I call it the musical version of Crossing to Safety. You follow the lives of a quartet (which I’m surprised wasn’t the title, though I see why it is Ensemble) from college through adulthood and the changing of seasons of life that change like keys in music. Britt, Daniel, Henry, and Jana all play music together as if they were born to do it yet, they all are four very different personalities. But that’s what life is everywhere. Differing people working to make beautiful music of this thing called life. .

I finished #circe this morning and moved on to #thegoldfinch after my morning smoothie.
📖
This book ☝🏽. I don’t know if I ever would have picked it up, but it’s yet again another recommendation from @loraena.tuttle that I am loving (so far, 3 chapters in).
📖
There’s nothing like finding #bookish friends that have similar tastes to yours...we become one another’s proofreaders😂❤️📖

I’m officially halfway to my reading goal for the year! Even though I’m behind by a little more than a month I think it’s still achievable. #mmdreading #mmdbookclub #idratherbereading #bujoforbooklovers #bojoforbooklovers #modernmrsdarcy #mmdsummerreadingguide2018 #mmdsummerreadingguide #summerstooshort #bookstagram #booklover #readingjournal #bookjournal

Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. I read this one because my son read it as part of his schoolwork last year, and its place on the @greatamericanreadpbs list! I’m so glad I did, and I look forward to reading more of Hurston’s work. #stickynotebookreview .

Summer's lease hath all to short a date.
.
Yes, yes it...hath. It's all school schedules, haircuts, open houses & school supplies around here, making it difficult to convince everyone - me, included - that it is still summertime.
August counts. Summer reading is still a thing.

The latest book I loved was a YA contemporary, Words in Deep Blue, by Cath Crowley. 📖 It tells the story of Rachel and Henry, two childhood friends separated when one of them moved and then experienced a family tragedy. Yet it is mostly all the things unsaid that keep them apart. Throughout the story, they are slowly reunited thanks to books. 📚 Words in Deep Blue is a very touching story for book and friendship lovers. Sometimes I found echoes of Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, one of the novels that has moved me the most in my life as a reader. 💙
Thank you @cathcrowleybooks for this wonderful book.

Ma dernière belle découverte est un roman pour jeunes adultes contemporain, Words in Deep Blue, de Cath Crowley. 📖 C'est l'histoire de Rachel et Henry, deux amis d'enfance séparés par un déménagement et une tragédie familiale, mais surtout par des non-dits qui s'accumulent. Au fil de l'histoire, ce sont les livres qui vont les rapprocher. 📚 Words in Deep Blue est une histoire très touchante pour les amoureux des livres et des belles amitiés. Par moment, je retrouvais des échos du Monde de Charlie de Stephen Chbosky, un des romans qui m'a le plus touché dans ma vie de lectrice. 💙
Merci @cathcrowleybooks pour ce livre si beau.

I absolutely adored the Ensemble. I loved following the characters through their life, and felt as if the book read as a symphony. Fluid, musical, crescendos, staccato and so much more. I felt as if I was reading a score as the plot was moving forward. If you are looking for a character filled novel, read this. .

I’m on a major reading streak this month, finishing at least one book a day so far (which is massive for me!). Today’s read breaks up my fiction pile. I borrowed this from @Cathron months ago, and now that I’m reading it, I don’t know why it took me so long!
📖
#longdaysofsmallthings by #catherinemcniel is an easy, but encouraging read for mothers (particularly of small children), who are recognizing that the disciplines they once were able to incorporate to maintain a healthy sense of spirituality...are lost somewhere under a pile of laundry & diapers. I was wary that this might be another #motherhoodblogger book, full of “how to have it all and be great too,” or the subtle “motherhood: you’re doing it wrong,” vibe that’s so common, but so far it’s NOT. Instead McNiel offers perspective shifts and simple concepts to incorporate practices (that we’re all already doing, just not always with intention). I’m still thinking over some of what I’ve read today.
📖
For example, much of the book is all about being present, meditative, and in the moment. Great advice, and not a new concept, right? Except the situation chronicled is of a mother doing the dishes, focusing on the feeling of the plates, textures, temperatures, and breathing, all with the understanding that it is an act of service and therefore worship. Beautiful concept...but dishes are AUDIOBOOK TIME 😂😂😂🤷🏻‍♀️I kid (because truly, there are some golden nuggets of wisdom in here!) but #thestruggleisreal 📖
Like I said...I’m thinking about it😂 SWIPE for my #25infive choices! I’m looking at #circe and #thegoldfinch! #25infivers #25infivereadathon #25in5

Another great pick from @annebogel! I found this highly enjoyable, if a little improbable. I also got to read it on the deck of a boat, with seals playing around me, so there’s that. #summerstooshort #mmdreading #illbeyourbluesky

I read ten books in July! That makes 50 for the year so far. I’ll Be Your Blue Sky and Us Against You were my favorites this month. #mmdreading #mmdbookclub #idratherbereading #bujoforbooklovers #bojoforbooklovers #modernmrsdarcy #mmdsummerreadingguide2018 #mmdsummerreadingguide #summerstooshort #bookstagram #booklover #readingjournal #bookjournal
