Best book you read this year? None really stood out to me as being the best of the year.  Although I have read a few really good books.


  1. I love the notion of your book tent! How cozy.

    I hadn't heard of Imagine Dragons before -- I can see how Thunder would be an easy ear worm!

  2. I just read a psych book that said often the difference between how people move past a tragedy is based on whether they see themselves as victim or survivor. You're doing it right.
    Congratulations on the promotion! That is awesome.
    The book tent sounds heavenly. We should all have book tents as adults to escape to, don't you think?

  3. Love this group. Thanks for featuring them. I also love your childhood memory. Your own little tent. Laura used to do that, only hers was a sort of tiny cabana up in the corner of the garden with palm leaves for a roof and a floor her daddy built for her "house". Fond memories. Take care, Luv! Wishing you a good week, and many outstanding books, soon.
