Hello Everyone and Happy Tuesday!

I am here today with a quick update on current kindle book deals because there are are some great options today that are all $4.99 and under! Some are super recent releases that have had a lot of hype like A Good Marriage, Valentine, and My Dark Vanessa. A few of these are on my own reading lists like Home Fire and Florida.

Summer Weather Reading…

Are you looking for some summer reading? We are heading into a few days of weather in the high 80s and low 90s which is amazing considering it was snowing two weeks ago here in Vermont! We are definitely breaking out the sprinkler this week…Anyway, On the Island is one of my favorite “beach reads” ever and Nothing to See Here was one of my surprise 5-star reads and would make the perfect “summer vacation in your backyard” reading picks.

Stocking Up:

Do you also like to stock up on kindle book deals? I love reading ebooks through Libby and Hoopla (thank you Charlotte Library for making these an option with just our library cards) but there is something about having books permanently on your kindle. (I have the Kindle Paperwhite if you are curious…)

Checking In:

Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful holiday and that you have some time to kick back and relax now. We hosted Christmas Eve and Christmas so there wasn’t a lot of reading time around here but I am hoping to have a low key day today. Lucas is back at work and the kids are excited about their new gifts and are having one of their buddies over, so I am hoping the stars align for some lazy daytime reading on the couch.

A New Kindle:

Today’s Kindle Book Deals:

Parkland book

Parkland by Dave Cullen 

Parkland is on my own TBR list and I have heard amazing things about it. I read Columbine, also by Dave Cullen a few years ago and it is one I will never forget. If you are looking for a powerful and thought-provoking read, this is a great option.

Jen Sincero

You are a Badass by  Jen Sincero

If you are looking for a book to start off 2020 with a more proactive mindset, You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero is the book to read. While her writing style might not be for everyone, some of the topics in this book are seriously life-changing. Jen Sincero is unapologetic about setting and reaching your goals using growth and abundance mindsets. I cannot tell you how much the ideas in this book have helped me in both personal and professional settings.

The only part I really disagree with is the idea that you can just “choose to just feel better when you are feeling down.”  NO. Depression, anxiety, and any other mental health issues are very real, and NOT something you can just think away with good thoughts and getting help is always okay.

I feel like this is important to share because this book was so empowering for me in SO many ways, but this part is troubling to me. So this book is a 5-star read for me with that one BIG caveat!

Colleen Hoover

Regretting You by Colleen Hoover

I know it is probably hard to believe but Regretting You was my first Colleen Hoover book EVER!! Her books have been recommended to me for years but I just didn’t know where to start. When I saw an advanced copy of Regretting You on NetGalley I knew I had to see what all the fuss was about. I was immediately drawn into the storyline and found it to be a totally engrossing read.

I was pleasantly surprised that Hoover took on some deeper and thought-provoking topics. My favorite part of this book was how it dealt with grief and loss and I loved seeing this from multiple perspectives. There is a YA romance that was enjoyable enough but also a little predictable but the other parts really shined through this for me.

The Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates

“Every society says its outsiders are the problem. But the outsiders are not the problem; the urge to create outsiders is the problem. Overcoming that urge is our greatest challenge and our greatest promise. It will take courage and insight, because the people we push to the margins are the ones who trigger in us the feelings we’re afraid of.” 

Through stories from her own life and women around the world, Melinda Gates shares an inspiring book that is also a call to action for everyone. Highly recommend!

Laurie Gelman

You’ve Been Volunteered by Laurie Gelman

Parenting is hard and sometimes you just need to laugh. Humor can get you through so much and Gelman’s writing style is relatable and witty. You’ve Been Volunteered is the follow-up book to her first novel, Class Mom.

Gelman succeeds at makes light of things that most any parent with school-aged children can relate to. enjoyed that while the book was humorous she was able to address so many very real issues that parents deal with. If you have, or ever have had kids in school, you will love this one!

Camille Pagan

I’m Fine and Neither Are You by Camille Pagan

I’m Fine and Neither Are You takes on some heavy topics including substance abuse, loss, family dynamics, infidelity, the struggles of long term relationships and finding your voice, all while being a completely engaging read. Camille Pagan is one of my favorite authors and I love how readable her writing always is. You can read my full review HERE.

Lea Geller

Trophy Life by Lea Geller

Trophy Life is a fun and entertaining read that had a lot more depth than I initially expected. I was thinking that Agnes might be vapid or unrelatable but she was anything but. This book covered motherhood, friendship, disappointment, self-discovery and finding your own path in life. You can read my full review HERE.

Etaf Rum

A Woman is No Man by Etaf Rum

This story follows three generations of Palestinian women who live in Brooklyn and their struggle to break the mold that generations prior have set before them. We are lucky to live in a country where it’s easy for us to advocate and vocalize opinions but it is easy to forget how many people still live in oppression.

A Woman is No Man is heartbreaking and Rum’s writing gives a voice to the many women who are still struggling to find their own. This was an eye-opening read for me and it also was a powerful reminder of how hard it can be to break the cycles that have been set in families and communities for generations. You can read my full review HERE.

Winter in Paradise

Winter in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand 

Winter in Paradise is the first book in Elin Hilderbrand’s Paradise Series that is set in St. John USVI. After enjoying the Winter Street Series so much, I was so excited to have a new one to binge on.

Elin Hilderbrand Paradise Trilogy

Book number two, What Happens in Paradise, came out this past October and I can’t wait for the final installment, Troubles in Paradise, in the fall of 2020!

Hello Sunshine Book Club Selection

The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo 

The Night Tiger is on my own TBR list so I was excited to see this one as a Kindle Book Deal! I have heard great things and I am always intrigued by the books that are chosen by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine Book Club.
