What I’ve Been Reading: April 2019

Hello friends! April was a pretty great reading month for me in the beginning, but I’ve found myself falling into a bit of a rut over the past week or so. I need a great fiction book that I can’t put down.  I’d love to hear your recommendations! I’m sharing a quick review of all of the books I read […]

Our Spring Term Homeschool Morning Time Plan

Homeschool Morning Time plans for a wide range of ages. Beautiful books to read aloud as a family I am excited to share with you our homeschool morning time plan for the spring term.  Generally a term for us lasts 6 or so weeks.  This will be our last term before the summer.  We homeschool year round so we generally […]

What I’ve Been Reading: March 2019

Each month I share a quick review of the books I’ve read and the podcasts I’ve been listening to lately.  I don’t have any issues putting a book aside if I’m not enjoying it, so you can count on all the books I post here being at least three out of five stars, in my opinion. Ghost Boys by Jason […]

What I’ve Been Reading: February 2019

I’ve been working hard lately to get ready for my next art/craft show.  I’ll have a booth at Simple Treasures Boutique next week in Farmington, UT.  This is the first time that I’ll be offering completed embroidery pieces! In the past I’ve only sold hand embroidery kits, but I decided to branch out a bit with this show and sell […]

Picture Books for February

These beautiful picture books, both fiction and non-fiction, are perfect winter time reads.  Full of snow and hibernating animals, these books all have gorgeous illustrations and are not at all annoying to read aloud over and over and over again. And your kids will definitely want to read these multiple times. Each month I like to restock our living room […]

What I’ve Been Reading: January 2019

Every month I share a quick review of the books I’ve finished and the podcasts I really loved.   I didn’t start off this year with a specific numerical reading goal in mind.  For the past few years I’ve set my goal at 60 books, knowing I would easily read that many (and more).  It was a little ridiculous, but it […]

What I’ve Been Reading Lately: December

Every month I share the books I’ve read and podcasts I loved.  I do not finish books I’m not into.  There are just too many great books out there to waste time with something I don’t love.  So each of the books below would get at least 3/5 stars.  This was a great reading month for me! (Actually it’s been […]

What I’ve Been Reading Lately: November 2018

Every month I share a short and sweet review of each of the books I finished reading in the past month.  Find more book reviews here. And, of course, head over to Modern Mrs. Darcy for many more quick reviews. The Portrait of Emily Price by Katherine Reay I enjoy Katherine Reay’s clean, not-quite-fluffy writing.  This was not a book that […]

What I’ve Been Reading Lately: October 2018

Every month I share quick reviews of the books I’ve been reading.  It’s been a busy month, but I was still able to fit in a bunch of reading time.  What have you been reading lately? The War I Finally Won by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley I loved this sequel to the beautiful The War That Saved My Life.  A powerful story […]
