Hello Hello, it’s been a minute. The short version: I had a baby (a happy, sweet boy Oliver), I left my job in Atlanta and moved back to Raleigh, NC with a new job and we just bought a new house. The past year and a half have been a whirlwind to say the least.
Having a new baby will switch up your reading habits that’s for sure. I used to be one of those annoying people who had to have ‘real [physical] books’ to read but it’s a hell of a lot easier to breastfeed or rock a baby with an e-reader. Once I went back to work, audiobooks from the library became my main way to devour stories (they still are). My physical books these days include mostly board books.
Here are a few of my favorites books from the past year:
Uprooted by Naomi Novak
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
We Are Okay by Nina LaCour
Hunger by Roxane Gay
Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire
I’m trying to find my way back to myself after becoming a mom so I hope to be posting here more often, the topics may vary a little more – books, toddlers, pets, home, NC but it’ll all be me. I’d love to hear what your favorite book of the last few months has been!
