Song of the Moment [5/24]

Songs of the Moment is a bi-monthly feature I started where I pick a song that represents the week, day or month; that fits with a moment I recently had. Or that's been on repeat.

Summer Reading Challenge 2016

The story behind it:
So many years ago, (maybe four) I was invited to join a summer reading challenge, which I loved so much that I was always looking for someone to do it again or something like it.

Song of the Moment [5/10]

Songs of the Moment is a bi-monthly feature I started where I pick a song that represents the week, day or month; that fits with a moment I recently had. Or that's been on repeat.


Today's song doesn't actually fit into any of those categories. It's not tied in with any recent moment and it hasn't been on repeat. I did sing it to a two year old five months ago (she was pretty into it) but besides that no reason but that I want to.

Royal Day Out - Book Review

Royal Day Out: A From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess e-shortRoyal Day Out: A From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess e-short by Meg Cabot
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Published: May 10th 2016 by Feiwel & Friends

Olivia Grace Clarisse Mignonette Harrison never thought that being a real life PRINCESS OF GENOVIA could ever be boring, but with all of the new vans and paparazzi staked out in front of the palace, the whole family has been on lockdown for weeks. So when Grandmere suggests a shopping trip to buy a small present for Princess Mia, Olivia jumps at the chance—especially since the shopping trip comes with the promise of lunch at the Royal Genovian Yacht Club (makers of the best ice cream sundae in the world)! Surely nothing could go wrong with such a simple day out, could it?

A quick shopping trip with her royal Grandmere turns into a much bigger deal than Olivia Grace, the newest Princess of Genovia expected in this e-short edition to Meg Cabot's illustrated chapter book series From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess.

Where the Light Gets In - Book Review


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Published April 5th 2016 by Crown Archetype


Many know Kimberly Williams-Paisley as the bride in the popular Steve Martin remakes of the Father of the Bride movies, the calculating Peggy Kenter on Nashville, or the wife of country music artist, Brad Paisley. But behind the scenes, Kim was dealing with a tragic secret: her mother, Linda, was suffering from a rare form of dementia that slowly crippled her ability to talk, write and eventually recognize people in her own family.
 
Where the Light Gets In tells the full story of Linda’s illness—called primary progressive aphasia—from her early-onset diagnosis at the age of 62 through the present day. Kim draws a candid picture of the ways her family reacted for better and worse, and how she, her father and two siblings educated themselves, tried to let go of shame and secrecy, made mistakes, and found unexpected humor and grace in the midst of suffering.

Ultimately the bonds of family were strengthened, and Kim learned ways to love and accept the woman her mother became. With a moving foreword by actor and advocate Michael J. Fox, Where the Light Gets In is a heartwarming tribute to the often fragile yet unbreakable relationships we have with our mothers.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

badge

April, like always, was such a slump for me. I've pretty much grown to hate the month. And I'm not entirely sure that's why it sucks just because I've grown to think that nothing good comes in that month.
It's kind of funny that in a month I wouldn't mind skipping over there are so many book events. It's like it's saying "I'm sorry things tend to go south (or not move at all) here enjoy more times with books!"
Sadly though I had to skip all events this year. I just wasn't feeling it.

Plus my neck has been hurting so I can not imagine trying to carry around books all day.
