I love being able to sit back and relax with a good book. In fact, it is one of my favorite self-care activities. It allows me to be able to sit back and focus, and just get “lost” for a moment of time each night, before I head to bed.
Plus as a mom of 5, I can’t stress how important it is for them to read daily if I don’t do it myself.
My picks for spring are from a recent round-up I did with Babbleboxx.
I have read two of the books already, so I can’t wait to introduce them to
Call Your Daughter
Call Your Daughter is written by Deb Spea, set in 1924 South Carolina. I was already instantly drawn to this story since it takes place in my home state. This novel explores the injustices surrounding race, class, and poverty in the years leading up to the Great Depression. Told through the eyes of three fierce Southern women.
The Cliff House
This is another book that hit very close to home with me. Not only that, but I love ready about women who overcome the odds (especially within their own families) to form strong bonds.
After the death of their mother, sisters Daisy and Beatriz Davenport found a home with their aunt Stella in the beautiful and welcoming town of Cape Sanctuary. As they maneuver through their adult lives, they must also deal with ex-husbands as well as family secrets.
The Bookshop of Yesterdays
As a child, I loved spending hours in the library or my locally owned bookstore. Much like Miranda in this story, she would spend hours searching for clues to a scavenger hunt that her uncle would send her on (sounds like epic fun, right?). Unfortunately, her uncle becomes estranged from the family for nearly two decades. It isn’t until after his death Miranda learns that he has left her his bookstore and one final scavenger hunt.
This book was so good that I honestly am having a hard time not spoiling it. I definitely urge you to check this one out!
