Welcome to the first post in the Book Nook Everyone! I am excited for the new chapter (pun intended) of my blog! Part of that new chapter is creating space on my blog for things that are most important to me and that I think will help make the world a little brighter with a tad bit of positivity.
My goal is to post at LEAST one reading list and one review blog a month starting from here on out! Along with just chatting about what I am reading, books I would like to recommend, what coffee/tea is brewing for reading time, and just having a little, fun online Book Club! Along with my own recommendations…I would love to hear all of yours-so at the end of all the Book Nook posts, there will always be a forum provided at the end of the post where you can tell me what you are reading/what you guys recommend! (Or you can always leave a comment!)
Now without wasting anymore time- here is my November reading list and what my brew of the month has been so far!
Glowing Blue by-Shane Hall (Sci-Fi/Fantasy)
This read is actually from a local tattoo artist in my hometown! So far-it’s been an intriguing read and I am always happy to support local up and coming authors!
“Coming of age near the shimmering Columbia River, talented and gifted Noah Hale is a beacon of light to his father, Jens. But he is so much more. When Noah dares to sleep, the creeping coastal mists have a way of snuffing out his inner flame, pulling him along the dark and mysterious pathways of his mind.
He’s always been different than other kids, but to what degree? What does Jens know? Could there be a way for Noah to reclaim his sickened soul, and discover his heart’s true rhythm?” -Amazon’s Description
Milk and Honey- Rupi Kaur (Poetry)
I have actually read this poetry book already last year, but I found it very touching and thought that after this crazy year I would find new perspective reading it. I highly recommend reading this if you are into the poetry format. I also realize I am late to the bandwagon on this book-but it is popular for a reason.
“#1 New York Times bestseller milk and honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity.“-Amzon’s Description
The Sun and Her Flowers – Rupi Kaur (Poetry)
I have NOT read this book yet and I have wanted to since reading the first book (Listed above) and is actually another motivator to reading the first book again. I just love her wrting and and am excited to see what she has to say in her second collection of poems.
“From rupi kaur, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of milk and honey, comes her long-awaited second collection of poetry. A vibrant and transcendent journey about growth and healing. Ancestry and honoring one’s roots. Expatriation and rising up to find a home within yourself.” -Amazon’s Description
This is actually all I have planned for November! Since this is a new project, I didn’t want to overwhelm my easily “overwhelmable” mind with a big reading list. However, if I read more- I will review them in the Book Nook’s Monthly Review Blog, which will hopefully be posted December 1, 2020.
