Joining Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy for her Twitterature Link-up

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

Teddy’s Button by Amy Le Feuvre (Lamplighter Ministries) – Love Lamplighter books! Will read this aloud to my kids soon. 5 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!)

    I think our tastes might be similar: I also gave a solid 5 stars to Sense and Sensibility and Adam’s book. We’re listening to the Ramona audiobooks at my house right now–so fun.
