I’ve always been a readers. In elementary school, I use to delight when they would have contests where you could win prizes by reading books. I would race to the bookshelves at our house or the school library to find more books to read. I remember there was one teacher who didn’t believe that I had read three books in one night. Momma had to intervene on my behalf. After that I had to have a parent sign off after questioning me about the books. I don’t remember what I won, but it didn’t matter I was being rewarded for doing something I love.
Books have always been my windows to the world as well as my escape from the world.
Here’s a little peek into what I am reading. If you have a suggestion, please feel free to leave it below.
Currently Reading – Updated 01/05/2019
Becoming By Michelle Obama – I am listening to the audio book version of this and I can’t put it down so to speak. Obama is a compelling storyteller.
It’s Ok That You’re Not Ok: Meeting Grief and Loss in a Culture That Doesn’t Understand by Megan Devine – This book has been invaluable to me as I work on processing my grief. It has also helped with finding the words to say to my family.
Tellos Vol.1: Reluctant Heroes by Todd Dezago, Mike Wieringo (Illustrator) – A graphic novel I found in my local library.
Spellbinder by Melanie Rawn – A spellbinding tale given to me by my fairy godfather.
The Sing of Achilles: A Novel by Madeline Miller – Another audio book that makes it difficult to stop listening.
