When I mentioned I needed some mindless fluffy reads, I had no idea how much more emotionally exhausting 2020 could get. My heart breaks for everything that my home state of Minnesota and the entire country is going through. In the same breath, I think it sometimes has to get worse before it gets better.
I sent a snapchat of all my recent cookbook purchases to a friend of mine and she made the TP joke. I laughed because it’s true! I got all these new cookbooks in the mail within a week of each other. I had some of them in my Amazon cart for awhile and finally just…
You guys know that I love, love, love the library. I read a lot and I’d go broke if I purchased every book that I read. I get 90% of my books from the library, 5% as gifts, and I purchase the other 5%. Since the library is closed though, I’ve dug into books I’ve…
I like to pretend I’m as cool and funny as Bev with her imaginary book club.

Instead of writing a post after each book, I thought I’d simply write a shorter recap at the end of each month. My long 2020 list puts me at about ~2 books/month and I’m already behind. Sophie is very disappointed.
Looking at my 2019 book recap, I feel I did a pretty good job getting through my 2019 book list! Between reading books and listening to audiobooks I made through a lot!

Trust Exercise by Susan Choi just won the 2019 National Book Award for Fiction. So, naturally, I added it to my library queue. To my surprise, it was almost immediately filled. It’s not a super long book so I brought it with me on my recent trip back to Minnesota for Christmas.
I stumbled upon this Empress Josephine Book while in an old bookstore in Paris. I read some of it while we had an afternoon glass of rosé. When we got home I checked it out from the library.
