What I read: May 2016

Copy of March Favorites (3)

This year is my second year participating in the Goodreads reading challenge.  I love using the site to make a goal and then see and follow my progress.  They keep me on track and let me know when I am ahead and behind in my goals.  My goal for 2016 is to read 50 full-length books.

 

goodreads may 2016

As I transitioned into new employment I have been listening to a lot of audio books this last month.  This allows me to be use my commute time as reading time.  With this I was able to get a few books read in May, but not as many as I would have liked to.  Below is the list of books I read along with short reviews.

The War that Saved my Life– Kimberly Brubaker Bradley:  This children’s book (middle grades) is a great piece  historical fiction on World War II.  The story follows a brother and sister from London and their experience being evacuated to the countryside to escape bombing.  The main character Ava, was born with a club foot.  The author did a great job giving readers an understanding of how life was like for a child born with this defect and how her mother dealt with it.  Although this book was written for children is is a deep read and a tear jerker for adults.


Lucky You– Carl Hiaasen:  I love this author; his books are hilarious but also a great reminder of the environmental issues that Florida has, and continues to deal with on a daily basis.  Lucky You is about greedy lotto winners who were not content with  a 14 million dollar win and instead do whatever it take to try and get the rest of the winnings.  I love Hiaasen for vacation reads as they are not too deep and always good for some laughs.

 


Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls: David Sedaris- This is the first book by Sedaris that I have read, but I enjoyed it.  His books are collections of essays about his life and experiences.  They are laugh out loud funny and great to read or listen to in short bursts.  I listened to this on audio and it is narrated by the author which is always fun.

After You: Jojo Moyes- No I haven’t seen the movie for Me Before You yet,  ( My husband would go with me if I asked, but I know he doesn’t want to.) Anyways, I did get a chance to listen to After You which was a great way to continue the Story of Luisa after Me Before You, especially if you have interest in, or are dealing with loss of a loved one.

 

I have several half finished books to report on next month.  Keep your eyes out for a long list!

Visit to NC

A few weekends ago I was able to take the time to fly up and see my sister and her family in North Carolina.  Her, her husband, and their 10 month old son live in a cute little community just north of Charlotte.  I try to get up there at least twice a year now that my nephew is around.  We enjoying spending time hanging out around the house and going on little adventures.

We are very fortunate to have access to a small airport serviced by Aligent Airlines close to her home.  This makes it super easy for her to drop me off and pick me up from the airport, especially with the baby. I also love that the flights are super affordable!

This trip we went on a few adventures. My sister Andrea and I took the time to visit a local brewery near here.  We visited Lake Norman Brewing Company on a Saturday and enjoyed a flight and purchased a growler to take home.  This is a super small brewery/tap room and they had this cute map on the wall where you can mark where you were from.  I was the first one to mark my hometown!


 Sunday we took the trek into Charlotte with my sister and nephew and finally got to visit the Olde Meck Brewery. The oldest brewery in the area, Olde Mecklenburg Brewery is the disney world of breweries.  This family friendly brewery is a great place to spend a few hours one afternoon.  They offer tours, a restaurant, food trucks, a huge biergarten, live music, and banquet rental space.  Although we missed the tour, we loved visiting the facility and seeing the selections and mood.



If you are ever in the area, wether you enjoy craft beer or not, I suggest you stop in and check out this facility.  (Also we love NoDa Brewing located in Charlotte.)

On the last day of my trip, we had the chance to visit the local library for storytime with my nephew Levi.  Although he is still a little young for the program, we had a great time listening to the stories and singing the songs.  Levi loved seeing and exploring the other babies and toddlers in the class.  We also enjoyed exploring the library itself and checking out what they offer.

Overall this was a great little trip and I look forward to getting up there again in the fall to visit.
