This week has been one of those strange ones where each day feels terribly long and tiring, but when all together the time has gone too fast. Time is a mysterious thing, and some weeks are just like this I know. I have a few quick favorites for you before I sign off for a busy weekend.
Books and Book Things:
Writing tips from Harlen Coben: This is a short but helpful list of writing tips. I always enjoy little snippets into writers’ lives. Every writer has different habits. It’s so interesting how all these brilliant minds work so differently. I’ve only read a few of Coben’s books, but each one has been completely absorbing and unputdownable. I can’t wait to read his latest, which should be in my hands by tomorrow afternoon.
Books about wellness to read this season: I’ve heard of only one of the books on this list (it’s Gretchen Rubin!), but added quite a few to my To Be Read list. These books range from personality to food to skin care to poetry. I think I’ll start with Rupi Kaur's new collection. I haven’t read much poetry, and the cover of this book is beautiful.
I love to subscribe to newsletters from different bloggers. Finding new thoughts in my inbox gives me such a boost. One of my long time favorites is Laura Vanderkam’s “Just A Minute” newsletter. She writes about time and productivity, and each month I’m left thinking about what she says for a few days. I always end up writing a few quotations down from this newsletter, too. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in making the most of their time.
Whatever this weekend holds for you, I hope it leaves you refreshed and ready for a new week come Monday morning. Enjoy!
