Here are my twitter(ish)-length thoughts on the books I’ve read in the past TWO months… because, ya know, having a baby meant I didn’t do much blogging last month:
Unglued by Lysa TerKeurst – read quickly. 3 stars. glad to have read it, but not in an “unglued” place right now (thankfully!)
Mended by Angie Smith – set up as a month long devotional. first Angie Smith book, would like to read more from her! enjoyed her writing style! 4 stars
Introverts in the Church by Adam S McHugh - Excellent. Will read this again for sure. 5 stars. Introvert or not everyone could benefit from read this I think!
The Dragons of Blueland by Ruth Stiles Gannett (read-aloud) – Aaron was a huge fan of this series! Would highly recommend it for young boys. 5 stars
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie – Great book! 4 stars. Didn’t know the ending so I enjoyed hearing the investigation and guessing along the way!
You’re Already Amazing by Holley Gerth - Maybe a cheesy title but I needed to read this. 4 stars. Full of Scripture and Truth.
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen – Love Austen. 5 stars. What else can I say?
Ramona the Pest by Beverly Cleary (read-aloud) I remember reading this as a child so it was fun to revisit it! Aaron was a fan but isn’t one he’s asked to hear again. 4 stars.
Elmer and the Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett (read-aloud) Like I said before, this series was a hit. 5 stars.
Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth – 3 stars. I liked reading about the midwife life, but parts were hard to take. (I’m just not a fan about reading about kids in tough situations.)
The Frog and Toad Treasury by Arnold Lobel (read-aloud) Frog and Toad! Who doesn’t love those two? 5 stars. We have this on audio too so Aaron has listened to it more than once during rest/quiet time.
So… in keeping with how I do things, it’s no surprise I’m WAY ahead of my yearly reading goal. According to my GoodReads page I’m 29% or 9 books ahead of schedule, having read 15 of my goal to read 30 this year. Counting the chapter books I read to the kids does give me a good cushion Who knows how the year will turn out and how many I’ll read.
Pretty sure next month I won’t have read this much! Heading into a season I suspect will be low on reading and high on sunshine and trips to the park! (I hope! -regarding the sunshine considering today we have about 10 inches of snow!)
