I'm a one book at a time sort of reader. That comes with a little bit of an exception. I only read one main book at a time. I sometimes have easier books going alongside my main read.
My main read right now is The F*ck It Diet by Caroline Dooner. It's about intuitive eating and getting back to a place where we don't obsess about food. The book has a sassy tone and really takes the diet industry to task. I also like how the claims are backed up with science. That said, it still feels like a traditional diet book - albeit one that just tells you to eat and eat a lot more. Apparently, traditional diets just mess a lot with your metabolism which throws everyone's weight off.
My secondary reads are a nice stack of cookbooks from the library. These are all about one dish and one pan meals. Weeknights can be a bit chaotic for us trying to get dinner on the table (and in to our toddler) before her bedtime. I've only pulled a few recipes, but it's fun to learn all the many things you can actually cook in an oven. Rice! Who knew?
A Sky Beyond the Storm
A Sky Beyond the Storm is the last book in a series I started years ago. I am flying through it (and staying up far too late at night). I can't wait to see how this story wraps up. It's taken me a little bit of time to remember all the characters and their motivations, but I am happy to immerse myself in this world again.
What I am most curious about is who survives. There is no way all the main characters make it out alive.
How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen
Joanna Faber and Julie King
I have an 18-month old. If you have kids or have been around kids, you know that communication is critical... also confusing, hilarious, and frustrating. Our kiddo's vocabulary consists mainly of "up," "dada," and "DOG!" I picked up this book to help me learn a few tricks and remind me that patience and respect are key.
