I was having a surprisingly productive morning until I took a break at a cafe and spilled a full cup of coffee on the desk and in my bag. I didn't stop it in time so my laptop, books and notebook got the worst of it. After the initial shock I came back home and spent several hours sitting on the floor drying them off with a hairdryer. Growing up I was a clumsy kid, always falling over, spilling things, bumping into walls and people. I haven't been accident-prone in years so this very public mishap was unexpected. I hope this isn't a sign that my clumsy days are coming back for an encore. I just can't handle more spillage and accidents. Are you accident-prone? How's your hand eye coordination? If you have any tips to improve my hand eye coordination I'd appreciate it.
Before the accident I was taking a break reading 99% Mine by Sally Thorne which I've been dying to read since it was announced. I liked the beginning but I was left disappointed and a bit annoyed midway through. After the first few chapters I found myself disliking Darcy and feeling sorry for Tom. Her description of him and the way her and her brother fought over him left a bad taste in my mouth. I so was looking forward to cuddling up on the couch tonight and finishing it but I just can't read any more of it. Is there are book you were really excited to read but once you did you were left disappointed and a bit annoyed?
Happy Wednesday lovelies, I hope you're having a great day 💕 #slowlivingforlife#onthetable#momentsofmine#culturetripbooks#currentlyreading ...
| @randomhouse#partner | There is so much about this book that makes my English major, book loving heart happy. It’s literally a book dedicated to writing, grammar, and style, written by the copy chief at Random House.
What are some nonfiction reads you’re excited to pick up soon? ...
It’s National Love Your Pet day...though it probably seems like it’s “love your pet day” everyday for me by looking at my pictures 😆. I caught Rosie and Diesel in their natural states...trying to nap. You can tell I interrupted them by the fact that Diesel’s eyes are barely open and the attitude Rosie is giving me. No amount of promises of treats got any other look. They’re totally cool with having their picture taken on their terms but their attitudes let me know if they aren’t interested in having their pics taken with books 😂. ...
If you loved The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck, then you'll love the next book from Mark Manson: Everything Is F*cked!
Diving into religion, politics, morality, and the modern-day hellscape that is social media, it’s longer, deeper, more mature, although still irreverent and weird as f*ck.
It's coming to NBS in May 2019. Tap the photo to sign up for the wait list. 📷: @markmansonnet#NBSNewReads#NBSbookstagram ...

Synopsis: Finola, a popular LA morning-show host, is famously upbeat until she’s blindsided on live TV by the news that her husband is sleeping with a young pop sensation who has set their affair to music. While avoiding the tabloids and pretending she’s just fine, she’s crumbling inside, desperate for him to come to his senses and for life to go back to normal.
Zennie’s breakup is no big loss. Although the world insists she pair up, she’d rather be surfing. So agreeing to be the surrogate for her best friend is a no-brainer—after all, she has an available womb and no other attachments to worry about. Except…when everyone else, including her big sister, thinks she’s making a huge mistake, being pregnant is a lot lonelier—and more complicated—than she imagined.
Never the tallest, thinnest or prettiest sister, Ali is used to being overlooked, but when her fiancé sends his disapproving brother to call off the wedding, it’s a new low. And yet Daniel continues to turn up “for support,” making Ali wonder if maybe—for once—someone sees her in a way no one ever has.
I’ve been on a real contemporary romance kick lately and I’m not stopping anytime soon! Who’s reading this one with me? ...
