A Year Without Television 📺
My reviews below. (Please friends, I also need recommendations for 2018. 😊) “The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding” Holy smokes. This is the bible of breastfeeding. It helped me through so many BF challenges. Must have for any Mama planning to breastfeed. #thewomanlyartofbreastfeeding “Option B” A real downer, but would be very helpful during a personal tragedy. I should also note: I think Sheryl Sandberg is a #straightboss #optionb “The Sound of Gravel” I knew I’d love this one from the moment I read the title. Absolutely riveting. Memoir of a woman who grew up in a polygamist town in Mexico. Abuse, dysfunction, etc, etc. Couldn’t put it down. Ruth Wariner is the true example of the strength and resiliency of a woman. #ruthwariner #thesoundofgravel “The Underground Railroad” A book unlike any other I have ever read. He took thick layers of history and tied it together with a string of fiction (an actual under the ground railroad). Brilliant and heartbreaking. #theundergroundrailroad “Commonwealth” Another one about a dysfunctional family, so you know I loved it. #commonwealth “The Wisdom of Sundays” Any text that includes the words of @eckharttolle are words to consider carefully (and live by). This book is just another example that anything Oprah touches turns to gold. The fact that she has been a vessel for so many spiritual teachings to millions of people is unbelievable. Thank you @oprah . I love to read this before 🛏 and will continue to re-read the passages for years to come. #eckharttolle #thewisdomofsundays “The Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep” I think I probably read this one 3-4x: combining all my re-readings during my quest for continuous sleep. I’m not sure how much it actually helped. What did help me the most, was the book “Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child” and a podcast all about sleep from @yoga_girl
#thehappiestbabyguidetogreatsleep “The Hate U Give” I haven’t read every book of 2017, but if I did, I bet I would still consider this one the best. Every single person in America needs to read this book. End of story.
