I’m a book lover raising two more little book lovers with my husband in a renovated farmhouse near Lake Michigan. Before the kids came along, I owned a used bookstore in Montana and our son spent his first year there with me every day. My specialty quickly became children’s books. By the time our daughter came along, I decided to sell the store and stay home with our babies (they’re 5 and 8 now).
When I first started this blog, we lived on the Big Island of Hawaii. Then we moved to an off-the-grid cabin in Montana for a year before landing in my hometown in Michigan, where I’m the director of our public library.
We read. A LOT. The exceptional ones that we love (and that are particularly well-designed), I’ll share with you here. Thanks for coming by, please comment if you have favorites I’ve missed- or if you also love the ones I’ve mentioned!
These aren’t book reviews, per se, but more profiles of the really, really good ones. Recommendations, really, for which I am not compensated. If you’re looking to buy any of them you can click on the the links and cover photos in each post, OR you can click on the little box over there on the right that says “amelie’s bookshop (buy the books)” and it will take you to my Amazon Affiliate store- you’re buying them as you normally would through Amazon, except that I get a teeny tiny commission.
