The summer is always a tricky season to find time for reading in between weekend trips and vacations but I’ve managed to read some really incredible books this summer and would like to share them with you! Here are just a few.

The Bright Hour: A Memoir Of Living And Dying by Nina Riggs

It’s tough for a book to get a 5-star rating on Amazon, and this book deservedly does. This incredible memoir was written by Nina Riggs, a poet, a mother, and wife. She was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 37 which quickly progressed to a terminal diagnosis. As the great-great-great-granddaughter of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nina writes about “living with death in the room”. I highly recommend reading this book. It’s beautiful and tragic in the most moving way.

Beautiful Bodies by Kimberly Rae Miller

I started reading this book while on vacation at the beach…which I thought was an appropriate time to start a memoir about the struggle with body acceptance. Kimberly talks about body image, weight management, and societal standards of beauty with a historical perspective on women’s body, science, and personal experience.

The Blinds by Adam Sternbergh

Have you ever wished you could forget the past? In a small Texan town nicknamed The Blinds the past is just a blur. Part of a government experiment ex-convicts and innocents have their memory wiped as part of a plea deal and for their own protection. But suddenly there are three murders back to back in a town where there are no weapons and no guns. This book has a whole host of interesting characters with colorful backgrounds and strange quirks. If you’re looking for a murder mystery that will keep you guessing until the end, pick up The Blinds.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

I’m not one to follow celebrity culture. However, fun fact…in college, I was a contributor to a celebrity gossip website as a side gig. So when I first read the description of this book, I wasn’t hooked. Evelyn Hugo is an old world-famous actress nearing the end of her life and determined to write it all down. She enlists the help of magazine reporter Monique Grant who’s previous writing resume included fluffy articles of beauty and fashion in a women’s magazine. So why did Evelyn pick her? They begin to work together and Evelyn starts recounting her salacious love life bit by bit until the story takes on a life of its own.

What are you reading?

P.S. – How to read more and four books to read this fall.

  • My idea of a web developer has always been some dude with glasses in a cubicle who is a huge Star Wars fan with little to no social skills outside of talking code.

Sometimes it feels a bit weird to call myself a developer because I don’t fit into that mold … at all.

I’m a WordPress developer who lives in the Rocky Mountains, on a dirt road, in a log cabin, with four dogs and two cats. I heat my home with a wood stove and and love to cook. I’m a huge bookworm and I’ve watched Gilmore Girls at least 10 times.

And yet … I love to code. Always have. I taught myself HTML and CSS when I was 13 and spent 6 months last year learning a back end languages at Denver University.

Sometimes my life feels like a huge contradiction. I’m surrounded by nature and the immensity of it - the beauty and the extreme weather that comes with living on top of a canyon.

But, I also love this other part of my life … the part that has always loved spending copious amounts of time on the computer creating.

There is no point I’m trying to make or some grand, wise, revelation to share. Just that I love these two aspects of my life that kinda seem opposite of one another - I enjoy a blend of both. This kinda life suites me.

  • Did my *first* live video on Facebook today, ah!

I talked about what you'll need in place BEFORE you start a website redesign to make sure your project goes smoothly.

I'm thinking about doing these Website Wednesday videos bi-monthly. Topics could include anything website-related like...
➖
✅ should I go with WordPress or SquareSpace?
✅ how to write website copy that converts
✅ where to source photos for your new website
➖
etc. Comment below if you'd like to see more content like this! A link to the video is in my bio.

  • What is making you happy right now?

Mine looks a lot like this - a road straight into the heart of the mountains.

It also looks like my new robot vacuum (hello #dogmom life), cinnamon spiced coffee, and adhering to my bedtime consistently this last week. Here's to another great week of 9pm bedtimes! #babygrandma
