First, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
I hope you all enjoy your day! Whether you watched spooky movies or went trick-or-treating with a little one, I hope it was a great day! It is the end of October (where did the time go?), which means it’s time for my monthly post of The Book Count!
Whiskey in a Teacup by Reese Witherspoon
Goal in life: be like Reese! Actually, if I can run life half as well as Reese Witherspoon, I’ll be GOLD! This book includes anything and everything you could possibly need: recipes for every occasion, the rules of how to set up the dinner table, music playlists, and decor ideas! Written with a shot of Southern flavor, Reese not only educates readers on the living of life in the South, but she tells stories of her family as well. This book is perfect as a house warming gift, or if you are on your own for the first time, this book is helpful and fun!
Life is Short, Don’t Wait to Dance by Valorie Kondos Field
She’s simply UCLA royalty! As the head-coach of the 7 time NCAA National Champion Women’s Gymnastics Team, Valorie Kondos Field gives readers a peek into her success as a coach and as a person. Though Kondos Field has risen to the top as a coach and person, she illustrates the peaks and valleys that led to her being on her A-game. Though this book reflects off the sport of gymnastics, this is a read for everyone! Whether you’re an everyday person or a coach or teacher, there are tons of lessons that can be taken from Life is Short, Don’t Wait to Dance.
Water for Elephants by Sarah Gruen
This book was definitely a change of pace for me as a reader. With a story set around a failing Circus troupe, it wasn’t the usual thriller or mystery book I tend to read. We follow the journey of Jacob as he rediscovers himself as a person. Through the good, the bad, and the ugly, readers experience manipulation and the conflicting path of love. This story really evolves into being how the main character Jacob picks himself up from his lowest point, and how his choices unfold the events around him.
As always, I hope you find these posts enjoyable and next on my reading list is Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. I really enjoyed the movies, so I’m hoping I’ll like the book as well. What are you reading? Or any books you want me to read? Comment down below!
