This Week’s Favorite Reads

by Stacey


I love other people’s Friday tradition of curating their week’s favorite reads from around the internet so I thought I’d give it a try myself.

Here are some of the pieces that got me thinking this week…

I love Book Riot for their podcasts and for their posts about all things books. This week, I was drawn to a link that highlighted a strategy to read more. Turns out the strategy is not to read the whole book. Huh? Maybe this is the secret of all the people who are able to read scores and scores of books each year.

So I don’t talk about politics here and I will continue to stand by that practice but this op-ed, All in the Family, is an interesting one. I did forward this on to some of the people with whom I break the ‘never talk politics’ rule.

I’m cheating a bit on this one because I’m borrowing it from Lindsey’s awesome blog A Design So Vast. I’m thrilled that she directed me to the book that will be my next non-fiction read for sure. Drama Queens is a short excerpt from the book, Untangled, that dives in to the inner world of the teenage girl.

Nina Badzin wrote a great blog post this week about her favorite food blogs. I am in a serious dinner rut so this post came at just the right time. As I type this, The Kitchn’s tikka masala is cooking in the crock pot. Fingers crossed we like as much as Nina’s family does.

So how about you? What did you read and love this week?

    I love this. I told someone recently that the highest value at this ooint (in my view) is in curation of the internet. I loved Nina’s food blog post as well. And I am starting UNTANGLED soon and cannot wait. I went to an event with Michael Thompson last night and he referred to the book as masterful. xox

  2. I love these posts and curate my own Friday faves every week too. I will definitely check out Book Riot’s podcast. Thanks for sharing, Stacey.

    I love Friday Reads post too! So glad you’re doing one. I have a hard time with reading multiple books and skimming them. To me, that’s not really enjoying a book. If it’s just worthy of skimming, I typically never finish it. But I guess that does explain why some people can read so many!
