What We're Reading


yes, her hair is just that amazing


Ophelia is a girl after her mama's heart- seriously obsessed with reading- I hear about all these kids who won't sit still for a book and can't even fathom that.  My little gal would sit on my lap, snuggling and reading all day if I let her!  Of course, that comes with it's own set of problems... reading the same books over and over (and over) sometimes makes me want to bang my head into the wall.  So finding good ones is very important!  These are all perfect for toddlers- she's especially into anything with flaps, touch/feel pages, and repetition! 

O P H E L I A ' S       P I C K S 

Toes, Ears, & Nose: She LOVES this one, and finds each body part on herself too!

We're Going On a Bear Hunt: She tries to sing along to the repeating parts, which is so adorable.

Dear Zoo: We love this one dearly- borrowed it from the library and had to buy our own copy!

Touch and Feel I Love You: Real life pictures of babies and animals are her favorites, so this one is really good.   

The Very Hungry Caterpillar: She loves grabbing the holes in the foods to turn the page- fine motor skills at work! 

------------------------------------------

And here are the books I've read this month, if you're on the hunt for a more adult friendly read!

M A M A ' S       P I C K S 


The Nest: About adult children awaiting their inheritance.  I liked this one, and flew through it!

Sweetbitter: I LOVED  this.  It's about working in the high end restaurant industry in New York- which sounds kind of boring, but isn't, I promise.  It was a glimpse into a totally different world from mine.  

Career Of Evil: This is the third book in the detective Strike novels (written by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling!) and I seriously love these books.  I kind of fall in love with Strike more and more each book. 

The Guest Room: This  thriller had me looking forward to reading it every night and had an ending I did not see coming!

Falling: If you've read one Jane Green novel you know they're all kind of similar, but I love them so that doesn't stop me.  The beach-y romantic scenes were super sweet, and there was a (sad!) twist at the end.  

Here's To Us: Another Nantucket set book, this one is about a celebrity chef who dies and his three wives and their children deal with the fallout.  I love this author, and this book was very entertaining.  

Happy Reading!
