It feels SO good to have a weekend at home.
I’m planning to really lean into the advice from Happier Hour to treat the weekend like a vacation (although this vacation weekend will also need a little bathroom cleaning to go along with it) – I’m hoping to spend some time reading and we have some fun plans with friends too.
Here are some GREAT book deals going on this weekend – I hope they let you sneak in a little vacation reading too!
Book Deals for an End of January Weekend
The Glass Castle by This is a memoir about growing up in a completely dysfunctional family, where the family keeps moving in the middle of the night and the children eventually realize that the parents are never going to pull themselves together. This definitely will make your own childhood look really really easy. I loved this one so much. (Full review here)
The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons – audiobook
This would be another one you could add to your long audiobook list. With more than 30 hours of run time, this WWII story set in Russia during the siege of Leningrad, is full of impossible love, loss, and secrets. So many people recommended this one to me after we did Winter Garden for book club in December!
The Playbook: 52 Rules to Aim, Shoot, and Score in This Game Called Life by Kwame Alexander – audiobook
This is the companion book for Kwame Alexander’s The Crossover and it’s chalk full of inspiration from some pretty amazing people (think – Michael Jordan, Muhammed Ali, and Michelle Obama). It’s essentially a guide to life!
Good Inside by Dr. Becky Kennedy – ebook
I’m reading this one right now (you may follow her on Instagram!) and I’m loving it – so many good reminders and helpful principles for being the kind of parent I want to be.
