Links I Loved This Week – 03/05/2017

Links I Loved This Week On Novels And Nonfiction

Another busy week, but I didn’t want to miss out on checking out all the great reviews and posts on my favorite book blogs. It’s March and we’re almost at the end of Winter, when I’ll be reviewing my reading for the season and setting reading intentions for the Spring.

My reading has kept up a good pace despite the additional time and energy required from my recent job change, but blogging has taken a bit of a backseat. On a definitely positive note, I’m definitely feeling like this job transition was the right choice and I’m already feeling more settled in my new position.

I think I’ll have to be realistic about how much I’ll be able to post in the next few months. I’m planning to stick to one bigger post like a book list, author spotlight or reading summary post per week plus one individual book review, and of course Links I Loved.


  • Top Ten Tuesday is on break for a couple of weeks, so I’ll resume picking my favorite posts from the weekly meme once it’s back!
  • Jolien of The Fictional Reader is planning a three-week long Read-Along of Emma by Jane Austen. If you haven’t read the novel yet (highly recommend it, it’s equal parts romantic and funny), this could be a fun way to do it.

  • For this coming week, I have a review of This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel planned for Monday or Tuesday, a post on the March 2017 Book Releases I’m looking forward to coming mid-week (a little late but still thought it would be interesting for me and hopefully for you guys as well), and if I get to it, a review of Dinah Jefferies’ new historical fiction novel Before The Rains later in the week.


  • I’m in a bit of an eating rut, though my issue is more dinner than lunch, since I tend to eat lunch at the work commissary. This list of 20 Recipes You Can Meal Prep on Sunday on The Every Girl had several picks that looked easy, healthy and delicious like these Turkey Taco Lunch Bowls or this Spicy Chicken With Sweet Potato. Maybe if I meal-prepped my dinners on Sundays I’d save time and make some less boring choices on week nights (avocado toast on repeat anyone?).
  • I’ve been horrified lately by the amount of trash it seems inescapable that I produce. I’m especially worried about the amount of makeup wipes that my life seems to involve, so I’ve taken the step of purchasing washable face cloths and organic makeup remover so that I can eliminate disposable makeup wipes from my life altogether. This article on Darling Magazine explores other ways in which you can examine and reduce your trash footprint.
  • This week I’ve discovered Mari Andrew’s whimsical but equally poignant illustrations about everyday life on her Instagram. I encourage you to check it out because I’m sure you’ll find the majority of them highly relatable.

    Thank you so much for highlighting our read-along! I’m excited to start reading 😀 I’m really interested in creating less trash and waste so I’m definitely reading that article. I actually just have a cleansing oil or balm and using face towels I got at Primark. I just wash them again and again, so I don’t using throwaway items 🙂
