Simply Tuesday: Small-Moment Living in a Fast-Moving World

Simply Tuesday: Small-Moment Living in a Fast-Moving World

$14.99$2.00
This is Emily's fourth book, and it edges out A Million Little Ways as my favorite so far. It's about finding grace in our everyday lives: not in the big-deal spotlight moments, but on an ordinary Tuesday, the smallest day of the week. I think many readers will find, as I did, that this is the right book at the right time for them. Published August 2015. More info →

I'm a huge fan of Jessica's food writing and original recipes. She has good taste and her recipes always work. She also has a big family, and is savvy and realistic about what it takes to put dinner on the table every night. My kids and I flipped through her newest cookbook together, and we've bookmarked two dozen recipes we can't wait to try when our kitchen is up and running again. Published September 9. More info →

This is one of those books you all have been telling me to read for YEARS. (I'd be embarrassed to add up how many times I've checked it out of the library and returned it unread.) When yet another due date approached, I read it in one day. This is a squeaky-clean Regency romance, strongly reminiscent of Georgette Heyer and often recommended for Jane Austen fans. I wouldn't hesitate to pass this on to my 10-year-old. Fast and fun. More info →

Smith is one of my favorite YA authors writing today: I included her novel The Geography of You and Me in this year's Summer Reading Guide. I read this in one day when I needed a break from the Serious Fiction I'd been reading all week. Smith excels at writing likable, sympathetic characters and plopping them into interesting settings, transforming her sometimes implausible premises into something worth reading. Sweet and engaging.

Dear Carolina

Dear Carolina

I read this in preparation for Triangle Reads this weekend. This debut novel is written as a love letter to a baby girl from her two mothers—one by birth, one by adoption. This novel is fundamentally about love and motherhood, but the themes of interior design, addiction, and canning real food are also woven throughout. Feel-good Southern fiction. Published May 2015.
