Let's be honest . . .I'm not a sit on the couch and read for hours kind of girl. I wish I was a reader reader. . . I wish I could find the time. . make the time. . .add an extra 24 hours in my mommy work week. Can I do that? For now I'll settled with a chapter here and a chapter there. I love to read ~ it uplifts me. I feel educated for a small minute. You know until mommy brain kicks back in and I forget almost everything I just read. :) I thought I would share what is on my nightstand this month and maybe you can let me know what is on yours.
1. Wake up to a Happier Life. Even the best mom's have their bad days. . . kind of like a bad bad hair day. I don't really have bad hair days . . .but my Whisky Tango sure does. Her hair really has a mind of it's own. WOW! That was huge tangent. Anyway, back to having a happy life. My sweet husband . . .Yes! I really mean that with no touch of sarcasm, surprised me with this Happy life book one day. I wonder why?? It's true. . .must have been a grumpy mom/wife day. Love him ~ and really loved this book. I think it would be a best seller if it didn't have such a lame title. Is that mean?? No one wants to feel like their life is unhappy. Anyway, It's a great read!
2. The Eat Clean Diet. You can usually find me living 'the lifestyle', cooking 'the lifestyle', talking about 'the lifestyle', or reading all about 'the lifestyle.' :) I'm addicted to the 'the lifestyle.' That is what I call this new way of life I'm all about. I wish I could shout from the roof tops. . . .80% diet. . . 10% genes. . . 10% exercise. Yep, STOP STUFFING YOUR FACE WITH A TREATY TREAT EVERYDAY. . .TWICE A DAY. . remember 10 TREATS A DAY!! That was me! OK! This book was so ~ so. Honestly I didn't read it. . . I just skimmed the pages. My friend Kristi really needs to write herself a little book. She is amazing and I'm pretty sure she'd make millions. Anyone want a 'lifestyle' book? Count me in the pre-sales. :)
3. The Secret. I don't believe that I can write a review that will do this book justice. The philosophy's found in this book if applied are truly life changing. Want a better outlook on life? Want to know why when you stub your toe out of bed in the morning the whole day goes down the tub? Want to create more happiness? Want more money? I could go on and on and on. . . . you get the idea. This book is kind of a regular in my world. Every once in awhile I need to brush up on my positive outlook on life skills. This little friend I like to call the secret keeps me in check. It's a winner.
So that is the story of my reading life. I have heard rave reviews about some vampire love series. It makes me laugh and have a little chuckle. I just don't know about this Edward character. I guess I'm just a little to practical for High School crushes and neck sucking vampires. So for you out there that have crushes on our handsome high school Vampire. . let's hear about that book. For now I'll stick to books that improve my little life and well-being. Happy Reading. :)
