I can’t believe it! I finished a book in 3 weeks!! I am already doing better than last year(I didn’t even read 1 book last year 🤦🏻♀️).
I need some more ideas!! What book should I read next?!? I tend to like practical and motivational books! #reading#curlupwithagoodbook#coffeeandbooks#motivation
Quiet Teatime. I am thoroughly enjoying L’appart by David Leibovitz. If you have ever dreamed of owning a place in Paris you should definitely read this first (or just enjoy the daydream-worthy buttery recipes). Gonna snuggle up with this fun book and a nice cuppa. Cheers! ☕️ #teatime#curlupwithagoodbook#davidlebovitz#teatimemagfeed
It’s nearly time for you to meet Maurice Hannigan.
He’s alone, as usual, though tonight is anything but.
Pull up a stool and charge your glass, because Maurice is finally ready to tell his story. 🥃

When All is Said by Anne Griffin. Published 24th January.
We always say that our kids are like dogs - they need walking at least once a day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When the days are so short, it's important to get all the daylight we can, when opportunities present themselves. So if we're lucky enough to get a dry-ish weekend, you can find us, boots and wellies on, tramping around the Great British countryside. (Okay, usually at a National Trust property, where we can be sure of a decent teashop to warm up in after!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Of course, getting out for a weekend walk also has the benefit of wearing out the kids enough that everyone is happy for some downtime when we get home - which means I get to curl up with a good book. It's a win-win!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's your favourite way to spend the weekend? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The perfect weekend to snuggle up in your favorite chair, sofa, or in bed with these 💯% cotton throws. Pick yours up today @patioflavor open today from 10-5

Rebecca Traister, the New York Times bestselling author was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night and it was just one of those interviews that you didn't want to end. Talk about inspiring! This is a wonderful book that chronicles history in a unique and relevant way. It gives us a fresh look at important woman who have shaped our world with their anger - intelligent, driven and passionate. A must-read! #womenempowerment
Although I didn’t get a snow day today (my school never closes), I have to admit that I did arrive a bit later than usual. But it totally wasn’t my fault. Mommy and I got caught up in one of those books ya just can’t put down. It was a real page turner and mommy did a good job of singing some of the words as we read together. I could’ve done it, but I don’t want her to start expecting me to do so every time we partake in some modern literature. Anyway, who could blame me for not being in a hurry to leave the comfort of my PJs and my mommy’s lap?! ❤️

Little-known fact: I’m a legit bookworm. And there are few things I enjoy more on a rainy day like today than curling up with a good book 🌧📖
I’m only 12 away from my goal of 52 books this year — anyone have any good titles to recommend?

“When the Dark comes rising, six shall turn it back/ Three from the circle, three from the track,/ Wood, bronze, iron; water, fire, stone;/ Five will return, and one go alone.”
When Will Stanton wakes on his 11th birthday at the winter solstice, he finds the world has changed. He is no longer just a boy but also an Old One, an ancient being appointed to help protect the Light from the rising Dark. He is the Sign-Seeker, tasked to find the signs of power and keep the Dark from destroying him through trickery and betrayal. For the winter is strong and the Dark, the Dark is rising...
Though technically the second book in the Dark is Rising Sequence, this is the first one I read way back when and instantly fell in love with. Susan Cooper both made me want to move to England immediately and to learn as much as I could about Welsh and British mythology. Though the mythological elements can be subtle, the sharp-eyed reader will no doubt spot them, and marvel at how seamlessly they are incorporated into the tale. This is my favorite December read, and the perfect book to start at the solstice. •
“Fire on the mountain shall find the harp of gold/ Played to wake the Sleepers, oldest of the old;/ Power from the green witch, lost beneath the sea;/ All shall find at last, silver on the tree.”
It’s been a grey sort of day, so I thought I’d share this Stormy Skies mug for #mugshotmonday.💧Do you like rainy days? Maybe you’re a Pluviophile - a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days.💧I just like that it’s an excuse to stay in and read a good book!
