February Reads-{charleston sc book club}

I started off Feb. with Reese Witherspoon’s Feb. book club pick for LAST year(2018),

The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo. The timing of how the love story begins, right at 2001 when the twin towers were hit. It took me right back to college b/c I too was in college when this happened(my freshman year in fact), so I enjoyed knowing I was the same age as these characters. I didn’t get to hi-light this book b/c I borrowed it from my library, BUT I dog eared and later wrote down 3 pages worth of things from this one. Things like: ‘what makes a life well spent?’, ‘and I forgot the world’, ‘there’s something about death that makes people want to live’, ‘ordinary days sometimes turn into extraordinary days when you least expect them to’. Those are just a few. It’s a great love story type of read that I would recommend.

The Power of Moments by Chip Heath and Dan Heath: A great inspiring read for any business owner or anyone who just works in customer service. Just think the Magic Castle in California and the popsicle hotline ;). I feel like this is one I may read again, in like a year and at the new year to give me a little boost! (same for last months, Joyful!). Books you loved so much, that inspired you to a certain feeling that you want to revisit again!

Girl Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis: This is just a great read for the dreamers! This one is technically not even out yet, it comes out March 5th, BUT many B&N stores released them early and I was able to grab one of those copies! My hi-lighter went wild with this one and I loved it just as I knew I would. I won’t give away too much, but I needed this one quote: ‘all you can do at any stage and season of life is try your best, and someone else’s opinion of how you’re doing or what you’re doing is….none of your business. YES! And ‘The yet matters. The yet reminds us that we have a whole week, month, life ahead of us to become who we were made to be. You are enough, today, as you are. Stop beating yourself up for being on the beginning side of yet, no matter what age you are. Yet is your potential. Yet is a promise. Yet is what keeps you moving forward. Yet is a gift, and you are enough to get to the other side of it.’

She has a way of writing that feels like a conversation with a friend.  Pre-order this mama jama, you won’t regret it.

Finally, I read my second novel of the month, Ghosted by Rosie Walsh. I was drawn to the colorful cover and the story sounded perfect for Valentines so I decided to dive in. I loved the way she described his eyes as the color of foreign oceans. This is one where you think you get the twist, but then it’s not quite what you might have thought.


Up for March…

I’ve already begun The keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan and I am intrigued so far. I love the idea and where the story is going so far.

Daisy Jones and the Six: Well, that’s the plan at least and I have it on hold at the library. I’m ONLY choosing this one b/c I trust Reese Witherspoon and this is her March pick!

2019 so far…
