Remember my goal to read 30 books this year?
I’m thrilled that even with a really busy schedule, I read three books this month.
Here’s what I read:
Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home: This is our current Bloom Book Club selection. It is one of my favorite Christian books that I have ever read. Prayer is a challenging, thought-provoking, inspiring read. It’s phenomenal.
Lucia, Lucia: I finished this book while traveling to Alt. It is the second book I have read by Adriana Trigiani – last month I read The Shoemaker’s Wife, which is hands down one of the best fiction books I have read in years. Lucia, Lucia was wonderful too (though not quite as awesome as Shoemaker). I even cried at one point- and crying is not something I do very often. It takes place in the early 50s in New York City and is the story of a young seamstress.
Mommy Grace: Erasing Your Mommy Guilt: I have had this book for a few years and read it over the course of the month – just a chapter or two a night. I expected it to be a little more how-to and deep, but instead it was very story-driven. It was a nice read, but I didn’t love it.
Next on my list:
