SHOW NOTES 003 KITCHSY COUNTDOWN GIRLS KELSEY A. & KELSEY B.

IT'S TIME FOR COFFEE-3

Check out this episode!

Talking to Kelsey B and Kesley A was seriously like sitting down with old friends. I have listened to their podcast THE KITCHSY KOUNTDOWN  for a few months and have really enjoyed it. So talking to them was a little bit like talking to celebrities and then like I said talking to two old friends. They are so delightful and I really just love their passion for friendship and bringing out the best in each one of us.

I feel like we talked about everything from how long they have been friends, babies and how they started their podcast. They also told me that they are reading WHY I HATE GREEN BEANS for their Book Club. I hope that you will go check these girls out. They are so fun and full wisdom and I cannot wait to meet them in real life!!

June Book Reviews

I love summer for so many reasons: no school, no schedule, the sun, the pool, my kids, and all the books. In the summer I feel like I have the freedom and time to read, and I think the lack of new TV shows has a big part in that. Well that and I don’t have to fear over sleeping or missing my alarm in the morning. So with summer here I have been reading as much as I can!  Here’s what I read in June with a quick review:

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan-  I actually saw this recommended by a friend on Instagram so I added it to my Amazon cart. The reviews are all great but sold it as “The next Shopaholic series” and while I didn’t think it lived up to THAT standard ( I mean Sophie Kinsella is HILARIOUS and I have never laughed out loud like I did while reading her books)  I did really enjoy it. It showed a totally different culture and full of footnotes to help the reader understand and get some insider knowledge. It was a great pool/ camping read.

China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan- Obviously I didn’t hate the first one if I followed it up with the second of the three books. The story line is so good and full of characters that you feel like you’ve really come to know. I really liked the character development that happened in this book and it really set the bar for book 3!

The Turquoise Table by Kristin Schell- Jamie Ivey (Host of the popular podcast Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey) is doing a summer book club and this was her first pick. The first thing about this book is its BEAUTIFUL. The cover is lovely with turquoise and gold hints all over it. The book is her story of building community with her neighbors really encouraging us to not be indoors or backyard people but to venture out front and really get to know the people that live next door.  It also has a lot of recipes and really good tips for how to become a ‘Front Yard Person’.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas- Oh man, this book was good. Real, raw and real heavy. It tells the story of a young african american girl who witnesses her friend murdered by the police. It is a great real-life and timely picture into the hate that we see all around us. There is some strong language so heads up but man, this was well written and beautifully executed. This story has stuck with me and has made me think so much.

Orphan Island by Laurel Snyder- Now this one was promoted to me like this: “I couldn’t put it down, the last time I read a book this good was Harry Potter.” So obviously I had to have it, and I had to read it immediately. Well, it wasn’t THAT good! I mean, it is a good coming of age story and I loved the main characters heart, but I also wanted to shake her and help her see the error of her ways. It ended kind of abruptly so I have been waiting to see if there’s going to be a follow up.

Love Lives Here by Maria Goff- I have slowly read this book. Wanting to take in and sit with each story Maria told. Maria, wife to Bob Goff, author of Love Does, followed her husband’s path of just laying out how they live and love and how its one in the same. I loved that she talked about how he’s adventurous, she’s not and how they made that work. How when her kids told her they were running away, she helped them pack a bag. She writes of love in such a simple way and its just obvious that that is who they are. Both of their stories are gold and full of wisdom!

My To Read list looks like this….

Today will be different by Maria Semple    Shoe Dog by Phil Knight                            Life After by Katie Ganshert   A Fierce Love by Shauna Shanks                         Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken    Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan
