YOU HAVE A MESSAGE TO SHARE; THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR YOUR BOOK
I forced myself to read this because it’s been sat on my shelf for way too long but it turns out I love it??? Basically now I’m going to challenge myself to read all the intimidating books that glare at me when I walk by 😂 #stephsreads2019
Welcome to my new crib, y’all! This apartment has hella natural light, and a great spot on the balcony (as seen here) for picture-taking! This is all the creativity I could muster up - a stack of books I really want to read but that aren’t in my immediate plans. Sorry, I’m tired 😅
What are you reading today? Wish I could be finishing A Woman Is No Man!!
Currently reading and loving Eleanor Oliphant. Look, I know I’m ridiculously late to the party.. but I can see why this debut had so much hype. I think it’s another polarising one though - if you read it, did you enjoy it? #amreading

Can’t wait to read this one, @pamjenoff 😍📖 “Grace Healey is rebuilding her life after losing her husband during the war. One morning while passing through Grand Central Terminal on her way to work, she finds an abandoned suitcase tucked beneath a bench. Unable to resist her own curiosity, Grace opens the suitcase, where she discovers a dozen photographs - each of a different woman. In a moment of impulse, Grace takes the photographs and quickly leaves the station.
Grace soon learns that the suitcase belonged to a woman named Eleanor Trigg, leader of a ring of female secret agents who were deployed out of London during the war. Twelve of these women were sent to Occupied Europe as couriers and radio operators to aid the resistance, but they never returned home, their fates a mystery. Setting out to learn the truth behind the women in the photographs, Grace finds herself drawn to a young mother turned agent named Marie, whose daring mission overseas reveals a remarkable story of friendship, valor and betrayal.
I'm in the hunting stage of editing. Every "just" and "really" (and there seem to be a lot of them in this manuscript) had better justify its existence before I wipe them out. That's right. I'm coming for you two. Do you have any words that sneak into your manuscripts without you noticing?
Speaking of WW2 novels, I won this book in a #bookishgiveaway Yay! I’m actually really excited about it. Feedback so far has been great & it just feels like it’s coming from a different perspective. I’ll keep you posted! *
Synopsis: Elise Sontag is a typical Iowa fourteen-year-old in 1943—aware of the war but distanced from its reach. Then her father, a legal U.S. resident for nearly two decades, is suddenly arrested on suspicion of being a Nazi sympathizer. The family is sent to an internment camp in Texas, where, behind the armed guards and barbed wire, Elise feels stripped of everything beloved and familiar, including her own identity. The only thing that makes the camp bearable is meeting fellow internee Mariko Inoue, a Japanese-American teen from Los Angeles, whose friendship empowers Elise to believe the life she knew before the war will again be hers. Together in the desert wilderness, Elise and Mariko hold tight the dream of being young American women with a future beyond the fences. But when the Sontag family is exchanged for American prisoners behind enemy lines in Germany, Elise will face head-on the person the war desires to make of her. In that devastating crucible she must discover if she has the will to rise above prejudice and hatred and re-claim her own destiny, or disappear into the image others have cast upon her.

So by the start of this year I joined a huge buddyread for War and Peace, and the plan was to finish all my 4 volumes of it by now, but I am having such a readingslump and I am struggeling with picking it up. I am only 100pages into volume 2, and its not that its bad, or boring. On the contrary, while reading it I think it is very entertaining. Its just that, when I put it down, I dont feel the urge to pick it up again.

Happy Saturday Bookish Buddies! A big thank you to @bookishhq for my free copy of Queenie.
I finished Queenie awhile ago and I’ve been contemplating how I feel about it. I owe it to Queenie to share some of my thoughts and feelings so hear it goes….
I went in with some VERY high expectations with this one. It has actually been on my radar since early fall if not last summer. Needless to say, I was so excited when I got my hands on a copy. Marketed as Bridget Jones meets Americanah, I was expecting humor, romance and maybe a little soul searching. What I got was something so much more and not really funny at all. Not being prepared mentally for that unfortunately distracted me from thoroughly enjoying the story.
This book will SHAKE YOU UP in the best way. My senses were on high alert. I felt anger, sadness, compassion, frustration….I felt A LOT.
This is a timely story about family, friendships, racism, body image, mental health and so much more. There’s a lot going on in this story and lots to contemplate. Personally, as a white privileged woman I appreciated the references to Black Lives Matter. I will continue to read books like this as they remind me that the world has a long way to go to get things right.
Life is messy as we know. We all might seem okay on the outside, when in fact nothing is okay. Queenie bares herself to us so that we can all relate in some way. Her journey to self-discovery is a bumpy ride so hold your judgement and don’t shut your eyes. “The recovery is not linear. Its not straight. It’s a bumpy path, with lots of twists and turns.”
Timely, thoughtful and eye opening I give this ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫. Have you read Queenie?
Side Note: I’m trying to make a point of unplugging more often so I will be back Monday with a week full of giveaways!!
It’s ok to slow down, to relax and let your soul rest. So many of us mamas don’t give ourselves the chance or the time for self-care. This trip to #thebeasnest is my first non work trip in 3 years guys, 3 years!!!! 🤦🏼♀️ I’ve worked hard for this time and I’m gonna let myself enjoy it with my family. A big thanks to my friend MaryJo of @port2palm for treating us to her beauty of a home in the Isle of Palms @thebeasnest! So, you can find me here soaking in the sunshine, the sound of the ocean breeze and of course my kiddos haha. And my current read #FeedingYouLies by @thefoodbabe with a side of peppermint tea. 👌🏻☀️🌴 #BonjourTravels#IOP#SouthCarolina#FamilyVacay#selfcare 📸: @dannigouett 📸 | PS finally using the presets I was sent by the @jillian.harris team and I used the ‘Whites Love’ one for this photo then amped up the saturation +5 and played with the exposure a touch. I love that it doesn’t add grain to the photo and that it didn’t change the green of the trees (especially biased because green is my favourite colour and I hate when presets completely drain it from photos)! 🌴🌴🌴

✨GIVEAWAY & BOOK REVIEW✨
I love reading stories about relationships, what about you? THE BODY MYTH by Indian American author Rheea Mukherjee was a vividly told story of a polyamorous relationship between Mira, a young widow, and Rahul and Sara, a young married couple. I would recommend this novel if you’re looking for a story that is also a deep meditation on grief, loss, family, philosophy and the human body and mind. I’ve teamed up with @unnamedpress to give away three personalized and signed copies of THE BODY MYTH! To enter, follow @sumaiyya.books and @unnamedpress, like this photo and tell me the name of the city where you live! OPEN INTERNATIONALLY, last date to enter is April 1. Participants should have parental permission to share their address if they’re under 18 years of age. Not affiliated with Instagram.
THE BODY MYTH was an absolute delight to read. Mira randomly meets Rahul and Sara and is immediately drawn to the pair. The closer she gets to the couple, the more her own struggles and story unravels. Adding intrigue to the storyline is Sara’s illness-ridden body; it is a suffering that is psychological with physical manifestations. Sara’s illness adds complications to the dynamic the three individuals share. Their story is set in the fictional Indian city of Suryam where the fruit rasagura grows. I wished there was more depth to the fruit, since it was so specifically mentioned in the blurb I assumed it would have a deeper meaning in the story. Overall, an excellent read that has introduced me to a new author I would love to read more of.
