Cheers to the Weekend 1.4.19


Whoooo that felt weird to type “19” instead of “18”. DOes anyone else remember going back to school after the winter break and forgetting to change the year when you dated your papers in class? I feel the same kind of adjustment happening to me right now, the slightly off kilter settling in to a new year and a clean slate. This weekend we are back to our breakfast dates, reclaiming our routines and spaces as the holidays and visiting family filter out, and welcoming in some better habits and better books into 2019. What are you guys up to this weekend? Did you do any goal setting?

Around the Web

This is a great review, and look at a new release that we both had mixed feelings about.

A look at some 2019 resolutions. Have you thought of yours? Do you feel inspired with the new year?!

An interview with debut author Mesha Maren, whose novel is sitting on my shelf now. This has me looking forward to it more than ever.

It’s time to declutter your shelves, here’s some help if you need it.

The absolute sweetest story on one man’s love of books.


I love Hey Atlas, and not just because they’re local and make cool things, but Cade has a feed that is so simply and wonderfully literary lifestyle

Excellent classics, interesting movies, and great reviews

Lots of great books, poetry inspiration, and writing motivation from this lovely little community

What We’re Reading

Michaela - I took a second to breathe after inhaling so many books in December, but am starting the weekend in the company of Stoner and The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. Bonus that they’re both pulled from my unread shelf!

Rikki - I recently finished Stoner and finally cracked open Seabiscuit. I’m also slowly reading Lolita and just started Between Shades of Gray by Ruty Sepetys.
