It’s always been my intent to have every book I read on here on the blog. When I started this way back in 2008 it was for the fun of the bookish community, but mainly I wanted to use it as an online book journal. As I read more and more, I haven’t been able to keep up here or on Instagram and I’m going to try and make that happen while acknowledging that living life is more important 🙂
With that said I read 38 books this month (117 for the year) and have continued by book a day goal. Here are my 5 adult favorites…
The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner
The Mystery of Mrs. Christie by Marie Benedict
The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles
The Match by Harlan Coben
with an honorable mention to the quirky novella Mouth to Mouth by Antoine Wilson
My 5 favorite kids books…all non-fiction
Who Says Women Can’t Be Doctors? by Tanya Lee Stone and Marjorie Priceman
Just Like Beverly by Vicki Conrad and David Hohn
Planting Stories by Anika Aldamuy Denise and Paola Escobar
Joan Procter, Dragon Doctor by Patricia Valdez and Felicita Sala
Jason and I have never told Gage he was diagnosed with PDD-nos when he was 2. We’ve discussed the different challenges he faces, but never the label as a whole. He’s 11 and it was time. Being me, I requested every book our library system had and Jason and I spent a few hours going through them, both of us shocked at how bad some of them were. I’m still a little miffed that some parent will read some of them to their typical kid and think that that’s what autism is. A post for another day. The ones pictured are the ones that pass the sniff test for Gage to read. We didn’t introduce all of these, but I have them on hand for when questions come. So far he’s only read one. He took the news better than we’d hoped and hasn’t seem to care too much. I hate labels because I find them a much too simple way to judge an individual and so far the apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree 🙂
How was your reading month? Anything I need to read?

Great month Stacy. I really loved The Lincoln Highway. I have The Lost Apothecary but haven’t read it yet.
It’s no Lincoln Highway, but it’s a fun diversion.
