What We're Reading

We've got some more good recommendations for ya!  We can never get enough books over here.  


Mama's Picks:
Today Will Be Different- Maria Semple
This is the same author as Where'd You Go, Bernadette, which I loved.  This didn't disappoint- it is very witty, and filled with the same dark humor as her previous novel!

Eligible- Curtis Sittenfield
I LOVED this book.  It's supposed to be a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice, but it's also just really good on it's own.   It's sweet, hilarious, and also a really interesting take on our current dating scene.

Small Great Things- Jodi Picoult
So, I'm actually currently still reading this book.  I have to take breaks and read something lighter, so it is taking me longer than normal- I'm a super fast reader.  But so far, this book is incredible and poignant, but super heavy subject matter.  We've got a white supremacist character, an African American nurse, and a dead baby in the first few chapters.

Modern Lovers- Emma Straub
 I feel like this book is kind of the Sex and the City characters 10 years later if they all settled down and moved to Brooklyn.  It's an interesting view on aging marriages and the quest for youth.  I loved her first book, The Vacationers too! 



Ophelia's Picks:

Ophelia is absolutely obsessed with books with real pictures of people.  We found this one, and she loves it!   Waves and says "Hi!" to the people on every page!

Noisy Zoo
This one is a big hit- especially the dolphin.

This has been a favorite for a long time, when she was younger just looking at the pages (especially the animal pages) was super stimulating and exciting and now she is into hearing me say the words. 




What we're wearing: Striped top// Jeans
Onesie// Tutu pants
