I hope you all had a great weekend. We got to hang out with some friends who will soon be moving to Sweden. Being that it’s so hot here, I’m thinking I wouldn’t mind going to Sweden right now! We are sure going to miss them but who knows, maybe next year we’ll get to visit them.
Anyway, we did make a quick visit to the bookstore on Friday and I mainly looked into the new magazines. I was so bummed out to find out that More magazine is no more. Their last issue was April I believe. And, RT Book Reviews is done with print copies.
RT Book Reviews is such a great source for romance, YA, mysteries, etc. I have read the magazine on and off for years. They are now launching into digital only content and while I do have an account I have to tell you, I much prefer an actual magazine. I have a couple of other magazines I read via Zinio but I can’t quite make the switch to digital.
I did find a new magazine though and that was Misadventures. A magazine about the outdoors and adventures for women. I liked that it had a little bit about everything, from solo travel to yoga and hiking and other adventures. They also had a neat Summer Reading List tapas style, meaning all selected pieces were 250 pages or less. Good recommendations on essays, poetry, inspiration and of course fiction.
The other latest issue that is out and is one of my favorites to read when I’m feeling overwhelmed is Bella Grace magazine. There are a lot of personal essays on just celebrating the everyday moments. Every time I read this magazine I just sigh. It helps me calm down. If you haven’t read this one, check it out and let me know what you think.
So I’ll leave you with a quote from the Bella Grace blog which I think will be great to start the week with:
