I feel like I should clean the house, so I am going to read until the feeling passes.:

If you need distraction from your responsibilities, I've got a great list for you this month!


My coffee of choice this month was actually THIS TEA...

The Republic Of Tea Be Well Red Rooibos Tea - Get Heart - No.12 Herb Tea For Cardio Health, 36 Tea Bag Tin
I do everything I can to stay in good health.  Drinking this yummy tea can't hurt, right?


I read three fiction and three non-fiction books this month and they were so good!  I would love to hear your feedback on anything you have read from my reviews or anything you recommend that I read.  If you are interested in buying any of the books listed on Amazon, just click on the title or on the book graphic.  (All book images are from

I. Love. This. Book.  Besides being aesthetically beautiful, it's message resonated deeply with me.  I have recommended it to many of my friends and I just know you will love it too.  If you find yourself trying to do it all, Emily's words will be a balm for your soul.  This pretty book now sits on my desk reminding me each day to hold myself to a standard of grace, not perfection.

I read this book for work to preview it for our school library.  I love the conversational tone and the information presented to teens struggling with depression.  It's hard to find books that are accurate, informative and reach teens where they are.  This one does all three.

This was my first fiction book of the month and it was so delightful!  If you have seen the moving "Sliding Doors", where the main character splits off into two different lives based on one chance decision, you will love this book.  Each chapter toggles between two different realities based on one decision the main character makes early in the book.  It is very well done and a love story based on the influence of chance in our lives.

Because cozy is my absolute favorite word (running a close second is delicious), I had to read this book.  I liked this book but did not love it.  It included a lot of crafts that I would never do.  I did appreciate the idea of finding contentment right where you are, however.  If you like to bake and craft, this book will be a winner for you.

by: Sophie Kinsella
(4 out of 5 stars)

If you have ever read Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series, you will love this book.  The main character is trying to portray her life on Instagram as perfect and envying those around her based on their posts as well.  As we all know, reality is always different than what is portrayed online.  This book about a young professional living in London will make you laugh and lose track of time.

The Status of All Things
by:  Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke
(4 out of 5 stars)

Another social media book!  In this one, the main character is dumped at her rehearsal dinner and then given the chance to go back in time and rewrite history one Facebook status at a time.  While I often do not enjoy books with magic or fantasy in them, I really liked this book.  It seems I had an unintentional theme this month about letting life unfold the way it should and appreciating where you are!

Happy reading, everyone!  I already have a good list picked out for April.  I love sharing my recommendations with you.  If you missed any of my other Books and Beans posts, check them out here:
