Bat Dad by Blake Wilson

This is a cute quick read. I follow Batdad online and was excites to see he had a book out. If your looking for a deep book this is not it. It tells the quick story behind the mask in the beginning but the rest is just pictures of Batdad and his family and his Batdad comments. I did read it in the Batdad voice.

Spy Mom by Beth McMullen

I loved this book (s). It was so good I actually didn't sleep some nights just to finish it, since it was the only peaceful me time at home.

This book is about Lucy aka Sally Sin an ex-government secret agent now a stay at home mom. She thought it was all behind her other then her paranoia but low and behold her past comes back to her. Now she has to help weather she likes it or not to keep her new world at peace. 

This book made me both laugh and feel the moments as a mom.

Belly Time

Well today is the day....the day my toddler innocently insulted me. I've noticed she has been laying on my belly and rubbing it. I assumed it was a comfort thing. Tonight before falling asleep she says and I quote "you have a baby mommy". So sweet my baby doll ... I said yep your sissy Mia.."no mommy in your belly". 😑
Time to start that diet lol. Too many prego people around and I really do not want a "mommy has a baby in her tummy too" moment.

Something to Food About by Questlove

This is one attractive book. In just seeing the cover you know its going to be filled with something interesting. Following questlove online I was not surprised to see he had a food book out.

This book is him exploring the art in food with chefs. He speaks to each chef and digs deep into their love for food and how they find it artistic. Some of the pictures show art is truly all around us. This is a great exploration which includes penty to read and beautifully captured pictures.

Some plates you see your like nope need more but you also need to see sometimes more is unnecessary when only a few pieces make something delicious.

The books cover is sleek and full of so many interesting details. Black page edges make this a visually appealing coffee table book.

It was a great read and hopefully he continues his exploration into the artistry of food.

Hope Unfolding by Beck Thompson

I am so thankful l that I had the opportunity to read this book. As a mommy to a 2 year old and a now 10 month old some days seem like pure chaos. When those small tiny hands, ask for hugs and kisses, it reminds me of the miracles my children are. This book not only emphasized what is important as a mother, it also allows you to remember your not just a mommy.

The author has done a great job, in my opinion, with those questions at the end of the chapters as well as the prayer that comes after. The book is a must read if you ever see yourself questioning your abilities as a mother, wife, and as yourself. Reading that yes I'm not the only one that has those "I can shop alone with the kids...nope." or have a pile of pintrest inspired DIY 's   with no beginning.

Great book and hit right at home for me. Thank you.
