I have been reading so so much lately that it’s only natural that I start sharing what I’ve been reading. I can’t justify having a separate blog right now for just book reviews (designing a new blog would just take away from my reading and sewing time!) so for now they’ll both be on here. Perhaps in the future I’ll separate them but for now this is how it’ll be. I will continue to keep my two Instagram profiles separate though. For mainly sewing and sometimes craft related it’s on @luluandceleste and for everything else (kid’s crafts, art, tarot, books) it’s @luluceleste.artnstuff. I’m aiming for 2-3 book reviews per month with at least one being craft related, and a monthly round up of the books I’ve added to my shelves (ie Stacking the Shelves).
Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality and the aim is to show our newest books and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries (or friends/family), purchased in store or online or downloaded onto their e-reader.

I don’t include the books I read to my daughters in my total count for my Goodreads reading challenge.
Books in my currently reading pile:
Seems like a lot but the first is in French (so I can’t read it on the bus since I need to be able to focus more), the second is a book of essays (I’ll read one or two per night), the third is a book of poetry (I’ll read a few per night, I don’t read poetry often and feel this is the best method for me), the fourth is fiction (and will make the trip with me on public transit to and from work) and the fifth is a book I’ve read already and I’ll read a few chapters of it in between books I’ve borrowed from the library (or in place of the one from the library if I don’t like it). The fiction one is the one that gets finished the quickest and switched out. Hope to finish these all by the end of April though.
