Sorry kids, no feet.

I am a stay at home mom with three girls. All of the time I should spend cleaning or making things I see on Pinterest is usually spent reading instead. Pinterest can get expensive. The library is free. At least until I rack up the fines for overdue books. If I'm not reading something that interests me, I'm listening to my seven year old read to me about fairies or princesses or fairy princesses. If she's not reading to me, I'm reading to my four year old twins about Batman or Star Wars or Legos. We value diversity around here.

The Empress of Bright Moon (The Empress of Bright Moon Duology) - Weina Dai Randel

It's not just the cover of this book that is stunning. The words inside are stunning too. The author has such a way of describing things with such grace. My favorite part so far has been the description of Mei's pregnancy. I, too, have known what it feels like to be as graceful as a yellow ox. Of course, with my twins, it was more like a beached whale than a yellow ox.
