What I'm Reading...

I miss reading and I'm sick of only reading articles on the internet. I've taken it upon my self to stock up on physical books as well as on my iPad so that I can spend my Summer into Fall reading more for pleasure and not all about the ridiculous celebrity gossip. Also, to be perfectly honest, I need to stop reading every negative piece of news that hits my google alerts; it's not good for my psyche lately and I need to do a little resetting. So do you want to know what's on the docket for me in the future?

Live Fast Die Hot by Jenny Mollen- If you follow Jenny Mollen on any of her social media channels, she is sure to make you laugh. I have read reviews of this book and it's supposedly laugh out loud and especially poignant if you are a mother. I feel like Jenny and I would be Mom friends but then I'm probably just thinking that because we have toddlers and aren't perfect.

123 Magic! 3 Step Discipline for Calm, Effective and Happy Parenting by Thomas Phelan- Speaking of toddlers; I've got a live one at home... this particular toddler is spirited and I'm looking to regain control of my life. Our pediatrician has recommended it and so far, counting to 1,2,3 has brought in mixed results but you can't blame a Mom for trying.

Zoo by James Patterson- I just recently binge watched the first season of CBS' Zoo. I loved it and have to think, since the book is always better, then I might as well read the book. I'm one of those people who won't remember enough of the details from the show to have the book spoiled for me after the fact.

Patternless Sewing Mod Style by Patty Prann Young- Who knows if I will actually be able to put any of this into practice but I think it looks like a really neat book, and you know what? Cutting out patterns is the WORST so I'm down with measuring then sewing looks for myself!

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard- It's been awhile since I indulged in some really good YA Fantasy so I have been on the lookout for something piques my interest. Red Queen has the makings of a long term relationship (hello, trilogy) and also has that dystopian feel that I usually gravitate towards. I'll let my cousin know if this works for me since we've read our way through Twilight, Divergent and
 the Delirium series.

Cravings: Recipes for All the Foods You Want to Eat by Chrissy Teigen- Ugh I love Chrissy Teigen and this cookbook reignited a love of physical cookbooks. I grabbed this and it's in no way, shape or form good for your diet but the recipes are decadent and perfect for hearty family meals come Fall and Winter. Practice makes perfect, right?

Cell by Stephen King- Oddly enough, despite not wanted to read negative things, reading the horrible reviews about how the upcoming movie in no way compares to the great source material, made me want to read this book about cell phones turning people into homicidal maniacs... something tells me I won't be able to read this before bed though because nightmares.

The Clean Eating Kitchen- My cousin just got me this cookbook for my birthday and I'm loving the delicious takes on clean dishes. We aren't ever going to be 100% clean eating family but I can certainly do my best to bring more fresh and non-processed ingredients into our home.

Have you read any of these books? Which do I have to move to first in line?
