My last year resolution was reading a book a month, well I did 7 out of 12... this year I shall do better #yearofbooks @tinmann มาแข่งกันเถอะ!

Design of Everyday things by Don Norman. Great read stuff with lots of product design principles. #roadtoproductmanagement #yearofbooks #books #productmanagement #design

This book reminds me of my Frog Princess! Such a great bedtime story! What are you reading to the kiddos? #YearofBooks #MomsReading #Mamihood

A few days ago, I finished reading this phenomenal book that my friend and former roommate, Farai Munjoma (@faraimunjomapeter ) got me for my birthday. My friends know how much I love books. I don't post about all the books I read, but this one is a book in a million. It speaks about everything from religion to faith, intelligence, nonviolence, love, forgiveness, complete living, MLK, and so much more!
If you have the cash and you live close to a bookstore, please get this book. Or if you'd want to read a brief summary before you make a decision, I could email you the review I wrote...just slide in my DM. I typically never share my book reviews, but for this book I'd make an exception.
If you also have a book you'd like to recommend, please leave a comment

4/26 The Prime Ministers - Yehuda Avner - 2010: June 5, 1967 Levi Eshkol learns that the Jordanians were intensifying their attacks - Begin and Allon discuss in another room - Eshkol spots them "Nu, tell me what you two are hatching" "Jerusalem, Begin and I want Jerusalem" "doss iss a'gadank -that is an interesting idea" #yearofbooks #yearofbooks2017

@nypl My very first aim in 2017 is to finish this fabulous book, "The Sinner's Grand Tour - A Journey Through The Historical Underbelly of Europe." It's written by one of my favorite authors, Tony Perrottet, and it's filled with the wild and crazy sexy stuff of the Victorian Age. We visited some of the sites from his Paris chapter in October - quite interesting. #readersunite #yearofbooks

Finally finished this guy🎉 #3down17togo #yearofbooks'17

My latest haul. On top of the 350 books I still have yet to read scattered around our home. And on top of the one I'm currently reading. #yearofbooks

Caitlin Moran is one of those people who has the ability to make you fall in love them through their writing. She covers all topics- from hipsters, periods and helpful festival advice to FGM, sexism and bigotry. She makes you laugh, think, despair at the world and then inspires you to hope and try again. I would recommend anything by her, both her novels (fiction and non) and her columns/pieces for The Times #feminist #feministwriters #bookstagram #books #yearofbooks #caitlinmoran

My most recent read for this weekend- comes as a recommendation from a friend. 'The Good Immigrant' is a collection of works around "what is means to be black, Asian & minority ethnic in Britain today". It makes you think and listen to how things are from others perspectives- something that in today's climate we all need to start doing more. #bookstagram #yearofbooks #important #books

"We draw our lines around these moments of pain, and remain upon our islands, and they cannot hurt us. They are covered with a smooth, safe, nacreous layer to let them slip, pearl-like, from our souls without pain." #living #goodlife #happy #books #booklife #bookworm #bibliophile #living #reader #reading #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookadventure #yearofbooks #lifeworthposting #literature #literaturelover #toomanybooks #toomanybookstoolittletime #picturesofbooks #love #americangods

Can't read without my make-up smeared glasses! #reading #booklovers #bookstagram #yearofbooks

Just a quick window into my growing collection following @oursharedshelf, including some of my own favourite feminist authors 🙌🏻 #feminist #feministbooks #bookstagram #books #yearofbooks

Mr. Potter... there isn't much you can say about The Harry Potter ⚡️ series that hasn't already been said or written before. This is one of those books that has grown with me, and I can remember it in all my favourite memories of childhood. In the sad or hard times, Hogwarts is a safe (excluding the three headed dogs, basilisks, escaped prisoners, werewolves - excluding Moony obvs, Death Eaters and Voldemort)- place you can go where you are always welcome. This series is a gift that keeps on giving. #harrypotter #books #bookstagram #yearofbooks

I think this is my third copy of this book?! Definitely one of my favourite romance novels of all time- if you haven't read it, go out and get it! Most library's have it, and is free or discounted on most e-readers! "I ask you to pass through life at my side- to be my second self, and best earthly companion"- C. Brontë. #classics #romance #books #bookstagram #yearofbooks #janeeyre

I've known about this autobiography since studying WW1 literature and poetry for A Levels, and have never gotten round to reading it. Having recently seen the film (starring Kit Harrington and Alicia Vikander) and having had my heart broken, I can't wait to finish it #bookstagram #yearofbooks #famousbooks #femalewriters #ww1 #verabrittain

Part of the @oursharedshelf reading list, and was my first real look into life in Iran, and the affect of war and religion on everyday lives. The fact that she chose to use a comic book style to tell her story, makes it even more of a standout book- one that will stay with you once you've finished! #bookstagram #persepolis #yearofbooks #books #femalewriters

It was an amazing collection, and when I saw it in the window of Foyles, I knew it was going to be a spectacular read... one of those books where the stories captured in the letters are something that you just want to share (Abraham Lincoln's beard letter is my favourite) #lettersofnote #bookstagram #books #yearofbooks

Tagged by @wuthering_alice to share what I'm currently reading. If you follow me on Twitter you'll know from the fact I was live tweeting it that last week I was rereading one of my favourite books in the world to celebrate #JaneAusten200. Well when I finished I went back to the beginning & started again. Nothing gives me a worse book hangover than Persuasion - even though Fred annoys me by storming off in a strop for 8 (!) years and then flirting with that insufferable Musgrove woman just to piss Anne off and then all that attention seeking nonsense in Lyme Regis, he more than makes up for it with that letter. *sigh* Without Fred Wentworth there probably wouldn't have been an Edwin Jones.... Also I love this cover, isn't it ace? Dreamily staring at boats, thinking of Fred 😍😍😍 - play along if you'd like @underthemayblossom @faykeenan @kiraelli @lovelycaz74 @christianne_bookwifery

Book 28 of 2017
A Happy Death by Albert Camus

#yearofbooks #bookaweek #books #ebook #kindle #camus #albertcamus #reading

I had to relocate the home office to the couch. I'm working, look up to grab my water, and see this. She is reading but also has figured out a way to keep the book open that she doesn't have to hold it. It gave me a much needed smile and I just had to capture this moment. I am trying hard to not fall back to the habit of Mami guilt while working. I have such a good kid! #ThisIsSummer #FrogPrincess #Mamihood #YearofBooks

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things is #book18 in my #yearofbooks this book comes very highly rated and based off the writing alone I can see why. The story line is a bit more controversial (or will be if it isn't yet). If you don't mind being uncomfortable while reading I definitely recommend this book (if you want more details I'd be happy to discuss)! Has anyone else read this book and want to chat with me about you're feelings on it?! #bookstagram #readmore #readinglist #readinglist #bookofthemonthclub

People who live in peace don't know what the war means.#yearofbooks #ourhistory
