As I anticipated, maternity leave has given me a lot of time to read – you know, Kindle in one hand while breastfeeding baby in the other. And through many a bleary-eyed night, these books have given me a little entertainment, joy and inspiration.

Beach Reads

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. Both were incredibly quick reads with a bit of a thriller/mystery component. And both books were so fun I was a little let down when they were over. Most of the Liane Moriarty books would make great beach reads, actually.
