Reading Life: April 2020

April was our first full month of social distancing, wow! We are so fortunate to be so comfortable in our little cocoon, and when I can forget that the world is on fire, there are plenty of things to appreciate during this time at home. Reading a string of escapist books is one of those… Continue reading Reading Life: April 2020

Reading Life: March 2020

Well, March sure took a sudden turn; it’s hard to believe that it was less than a month ago that everything seemed normal, and then our lives shifted seemingly overnight as the Covid-19 pandemic escalated around the world. We’ve been hunkered down at home since mid-March, trying to stay safe and isolated as much as… Continue reading Reading Life: March 2020

Reading Life: February 2020

Reading took a backseat in February, but I still managed to finish a few titles and they were all enjoyable! Hopefully I can keep this streak of good books going into the next month too.

Reading Life: November 2019

November was a better month for reading! It’s hard to believe we’re nearing the end of the year already, yet here we are. You never know how big life changes like a new baby will affect your everyday routines, let alone hobbies like reading, so it feels like a relief to find that I still… Continue reading Reading Life: November 2019

Reading Life: October 2019

So this may be a new low… only one book read this month?! October felt like a marathon from beginning to end, from Amelia’s 3rd birthday to fall festivities, with two visits from family and a couple weeks of congestion thrown in for good measure. Side tangent: does anyone else feel like Autumn is the… Continue reading Reading Life: October 2019
