Gosh March flew by! I thought I would squeeze in a bit more reading than I did in February, but it wasn’t much better. I did have a big stack of books of my nightstand, so that’s something.
Here’s what I did read:
Sparkly Green Earrings: Catching the Light at Every Turn: I am a casual reader of Melanie’s Big Mama blog and was looking forward to diving into her memoir about motherhood. I found the book to be very easy to read and love Melanie’s conversational tone. I think we would really get along in real life. This is a perfect summer/beach read, in my opinion.
Life After Art: What You Forgot About Life and Faith Since You Left the Art Room – I really enjoyed Matt Appling’s new book, which is about how art (of any kind) impacts our lives and faith. However, most people leave art behind when they are children. Appling is an elementary art teacher and I found his discussion of children fascinating, as well as his thoughts about how art influences our personality and our life. As a creative, I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
I am looking forward to diving into Bread & Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table with Recipes next. It releases next week and Amazon has it for about $10 – for a hard cover. Go check it out.
