What I'm Reading

  Sweet boy has been a much better napper lately and we always get a nice long break after bedtime.
(We won't talk about the waking every two hours at night that teething has recently brought on...)
So thankfully, I've been able to dive back into one of my most favorite hobbies-BOOKS!
I've loved reading as long as I can remember.  My mom shares my passion and would always take me to the bookstore for the latest Goosebumps or American Girls book when I was little. 
Books and I go way back.

 So here are a few I've recently finished. 
And of course I read on my kindle in yoga pants with dirty hair 
went to the library in a darling outfit and brought home all my books in my monogrammed tote bag:)

1.Unbroken  This true story is unbelievable! Olympics, Hitler, Japanese POW camps, lost at sea, shark attacks.... This man had an amazing life. Not my usual genre, but I couldn't put it down!
2.The American Heiress  I love historical fiction. I read this in hopes to satisfy my Downton Abbey withdrawals. Well written, great details, but I'm sad to say I didn't love the ending.
3.The Sleepeasy Solution  Just finished so I haven't started this method yet. But I really like all the ideas. Much more gentle approach to sleep training than a lot of the books I've read.  
4.Gone Girl  So clever! I couldn't put this down. I loved how it was narrated by the two characters. I bet it'd be a great audio book. 
5.50 Shades Trilogy  I don't care to discuss these:) But I will say I was surprised at how much I liked the ending. A lot more heartfelt than one would expect.
6.The Kitchen House  One of my new favorites. Set in the time of American slavery and indentured servants. So well written. The characters seemed so real!

So that's what I've been reading lately. I hope to have more books to review soon. 
A few extra minutes on the play mat is fine, right? :)
