If I had to dream up the perfect day it would include sun and sand and a fruity drink and a book to read or maybe a warm cottage with a fire and wine and a book to read or even just a few hours in a coffee shop with a latte and a book to read.
Somewhere in my 20’s I embraced my nerdy-ness and my love of big words and now my heart beats fast every time I find someone who wants to discuss what they’ve read instead of their favorite tv show because I have no idea what is on any channel other than Disney and Nick Jr.
So here’s my list of must reads books from 2013 with a little help from my book-loving friends (not all published in 2013, just what we read and loved):
The Mourning Hours
The Good Mother Myth (recommended by Kim of All Work and No Play Makes Mommy Go Something Something)
AND no must-read list would be complete without a list of the best blog posts I read through the year… I could give you long explanations of my I chose each but truly, when I think back on the year, these are the first ones I remember, they made me laugh or cry or think or wish I could drop everything and put words together as perfectly as these women have done.
