Dinner club—one of my favorite times every month with people i love dearly (and plenty of bread and wine. obvs.) this book by @sniequist spoke to my heart and was so perfect in every way that i dispatched my husband and sons out (to three different stores!😬) before everyone arrived so that i could give each of my girlfriends a copy that night. ❤️
🥖🍷
bread & wine by shauna niequist (essays/cooking) full of mouth-watering recipes, but so much more: stories, encouragement, the comfort & joy of gathering together around the table with ones you love + so evocative you feel like you’re right there around her warm, cozy table or chopping & whisking side-by-side in her kitchen + nourishing to both body & soul = 👍🏻❤️
🥖🍷
“what’s becoming clearer and clearer to me is that the most sacred moments, the ones in which i feel god’s presence most profoundly, when i feel the goodness of the world most arrestingly, take place at the table...it’s not, actually, strictly, about food for me. it’s about what happens when we come together, slow down, open our homes, look into one another’s faces, listen to one another’s stories.”

I'm currently reading whole - rethinking the science of nutrition for work! i work with a few kids who are/have been vegetarian and whose parents want them to start adopting s healthier lifestyle.
..
..
..
now i am no expert on this, and i'm definitely a meat eater, but i'm down to learn about it! i thought that if i read into nutrition and gain some insightful scientific info, the kiddos may be more motivated to hear what i have to say 😉😉
..
..
..
"in the china study, t. colin campbell...revolutionized the way we think about our food with the evidence that a whole food, plant-based diet is the healthiest way to eat. now, in whole, he explains the science behind the evidence, the ways our current scientific paradigm ignores the fascinating complexity of the human body, and why, if we have such overwhelming evidence that everything we think about nutrition is wrong, our eating habits haven't changed".

An obvious, albeit petrifying, choice for mother’s day:
the perfect mother by aimee molloy (fiction) a mother’s greatest fear against the backdrop of the common overwhelming frazzled feelings of being a new mom + exposed secrets, taut panic, and surprising revelations = 👍🏻

“if only the words nell spoke that day—her head tilted toward the sky, her features swallowed by the sun—hadn’t been so prescient: bad things happen in heat like this.”

You guys. i found the coolest new bookstore, and it’s in my city! @commonplacebooks is so beautiful, and has gorgeous books. #swoon.
(i got four. you’ll see them reviewed soon. obvs.) 📚

plus, they have the sweetest lover-lump of a pooch, #boz. (pictured)
also, they asked if we wanted a glass of wine while we shopped. ummm, #yeah. 🍷 #isthatarealquestion?

aaaaand they are just down the street from one of our fave date-night spots, @stellaokc (@chefmel71 — the butternut squash tortelloni is the absolute 💣 and delicious and i want to marry it ❤️). midtown okc is awesome and you need to get here #pdq.
ps: the hottie perusing books like a stone-cold-fox-reader-man is unavailable; he’s mine, k thanks bye. 👋🏻

Today i’m doing a short deadhead flight and then who knows because i’ve already been reassigned once 🤦🏼‍♀️ i’m hoping by the time you read this, i’m at home relaxing but you can never be sure with this job.
.
i’m finally getting into the picture of dorian gray. i’m not in love, by any means, but i’m starting to enjoy it. lord henry drives me up the wall though. he’s like that hipster friend whose opinions are more insightful than yours and he hates commercialism and he’s really into hedonism and he thinks pumpkin spice lattes are just for “basic bitches”. long story short, i don’t like him 😂
.
what are you reading today?

Well, apparently this is the second book in a series (oops 🤦) which explains why i felt like the main character wasn't developed enough. the plot was alright, but not great enough to make me want to go back and read the first book.

Leí este libro el domingo 15 de octubre del 2017, ese día para mi connor dejo ir a su madre... el miércoles 18 de octubre yo tuve que dejar ir a alguien.
el monstruo no solo desenmascaró la verdad de connor o'malley, también sacó a la luz mi verdad, esa que me negaba a aceptar. “solo deseabas el fin del dolor, tu propio dolor. ese es el deseo más humano qué hay.”

comment 1 star 33 Yesterday

Back to the regular grind of working and reading, working and reading. i’m still reading the picture of dorian gray but i’m taking breaks with the hobbit. i felt like it was an appropriate fall time read and i’m thankful i’ve been traveling to cities that actually have fall 😂
.
this picture was for @books.onboard which is back if you haven’t checked it out. i’m glad i’m back to talking to passengers about books instead of just delays, weather, and how to open the lavatory door.
.
hope everyone is having a great sunday!

comment 13 star 403 Yesterday

The 7 1/2 deaths of evelyn hardcastle by stuart turton (fiction) a closed-circle, agatha christie-esque mystery, but made wholly original with time-travel, body-swapping elements of the puzzle + complex, clever, and i thoroughly loved every minute of it = 👍🏻

“so many memories and secrets, so many burdens. every life has such weight. i don’t know how anybody carries even one.”

Take two review of the girl who smiled beads.
clemantine as a 6 year old child and her sister claire at 15 escape the war torn rwanda in 1994 .they take refuge in 7 different african countries. story so poignant and raw that i actually teared while reading .that never happened before (btw).. she tells of how she coped at the camp, that unsettling feeling not knowing what may come tomorrow, the loss of family, genocide/holocaust/aftermath untill she migrated to the us on refugee status.she then embarks on another journey of finding her individuality while at the same time dealing with her past. hands down!!!! it goes to the favourite book shelfie..such a powerful memoir. #clemantinewamariya #theunreadshelfproject2018 #bookreview #bookstagram #bookstagramafrica #becausereading #instabookclub #readblackauthors #readblackwomen

Entirely possible i’ll regret posting this but it’s been a semi-hellish week and i am reading a goofy book while in the bath, drinking four roses out of an old yogurt container. don’t judge. 🥃🛁📚

comment 76 star 393 3 days ago

Gabe and i are moving in 2 weeks and that means i had to pack up all my books. in case you missed my string of stories yesterday where i rambled on and on about how much i didn’t want to pack up my books, i’ll just say i wasn’t happy about it.
.
i am looking forward to taking my books and cats to their new home. gabe and i are pretty smitten with the new apartment (me, mostly with the built in bookshelf in the bedroom because my tbr pile won’t be on the floor anymore!).
.
i started the picture of dorian gray yesterday and next i’ll read the hobbit. i know the picture of dorian gray is a classic but the first 13 pages were just two englishman having a conversation so i’m hoping it picks up.
.
what’s your favorite and least favorite thing about moving?

You know what you do when your baby won't sleep until 11pm all week? read!
this "thriller" fell a little flat for me; i found it a bit predictable and was waiting for a twist that never happened 🤷 with that said, a lot of people on goodreads enjoyed this, so maybe i'm just missing something.

I finished lethal white last night and my head is still spinning. it was quite the ride. in true galbraith (rowling) fashion, it was a complex and multilayered plot that had me guessing until the end.
.
it was overwhelming for me at times just because so much happened and i feel like this could’ve benefited from a little more editing, but honestly who is going to tell (queen) j.k. rowling to reel it in? not me.
.
i’m not usually a fan of this genre because a lot of authors focus on gruesome details for the sake of shock and awe instead of the human emotions involved. i prefer reading more about the human behind the crime and this series does a great job at focusing on the psychology of all involved. getting to know cormoran strike through the 4 books so far has been one of the highlights of the series. he’s flawed and fascinating. i’m a fan.
.
i’m still debating on what to read next but i think i might finally read the hobbit. that seems like a fall time read, right?

Another stormy muddy day without power in the carolinas. i was on a roll with a big scene in my work-in-progress when the computer died. it came back on long enough for me to reboot and see that the entire scene was gone, before it died again. i know—i know— there is no way i can recreate it to its original level. so now i am going to sit here with the dog and moan for awhile. somebody send over some bourbon, please. 😬 #writerproblems .
