Arranged relationships, inanimate toys, and my favorite homeschooling book so far {Quicklit – August Reads}

Non-Fiction: The Brave Learner: Finding Everyday Magic in Homeschool, Learning, and Life by Julie Bogart - 5 stars. So helpful and practical. I love how she described the way not adhering to any one method of homeschooling really freed up her family to thrive.

Summer Reading – Am I Doing it Wrong? {July QuickLit}

July was a weird month of reading. I listened to a couple audiobooks while ferrying the kids back and forth to VBS. Three hours of VBS is not really long enough when it takes 25 minutes to get to church. The audiobooks helped it to be more enjoyable instead of feeling like wasting alone minutes … Continue reading Summer Reading – Am I Doing it Wrong? {July QuickLit}

How to read a riveting series. {June Quicklit}

Put the whole series on hold at the library. Wait until they all show up. Read them as quickly as you can. This is what I should have done with the Charlotte Holmes series. So let me say it again: Make sure you have them all on hand. I read a lot this month, but … Continue reading How to read a riveting series. {June Quicklit}

I had a numb spot on my thumb for weeks from crocheting with such intensity. But the animals turned out adorable and all the children who received one were immediately in love. So it was … Continue reading December Reads {QuickLit}

A holiday bookish pickle {Quick Lit – Nov 2018}

I got into a little bit of a pickle on Thanksgiving. Someone asked me what I'd been reading and I had no ready answer. This is a holiday faux pas for those of us with bookish inclinations. I ended up pulling up my Goodreads to remind myself what I'd even read recently. And then felt … Continue reading A holiday bookish pickle {Quick Lit – Nov 2018}

Reading Widely {QuickLit Oct and Whole Together Family 14/31}

I listened to sooo many audiobooks last month. I'm hooked, at least when they're free and from the library! I've been really enjoying trying to read more diverse books this year, and I feel like I am finally in a good groove. Most of these are recent releases. There are a five books based in … Continue reading Reading Widely {QuickLit Oct and Whole Together Family 14/31}
