I am finally getting back in my reading groove. After reading a good bit in 2015, and so little in 2016 (so far!) I got fed up with it, dragged my hiney to the library, and found some books that I’m loving!
Here’s what I’ve been reading!
First and foremost, always the Bible. I’m currently reading through Proverbs with my trusty Halley’s Bible Handbook at my side to help me understand any difficult passages.
Finished Inconceivable in just a few days. It had me hooked. It’s a memoir by Julia Indichova about secondary infertility and how she worked to overcome it naturally.
Currently reading Family Tree by Barbara Delinsky. It’s about a caucasian married couple who have a biological African-American child and the ramifications it causes in their lives after the baby is born and while they explore their family histories. The storyline is pretty interesting so far. I’m definitely wondering how the ending will play out!
The audiobook I’m currently listening to is First Women: The Grace and Power of America’s Modern First Ladies by Kate Andersen Brower. I loved Brower’s last book about the White House, so I was excited to dive into this one. It’s full of details and personal stories about the First Ladies of the United States. I’m enjoying it, and my only complaint is that the author jumps around a lot. I almost wish the book would have been written chronologically.
On my to-read list:
The Language of Baklava by Diana Abu-Jaber
The Midwife’s Tale by Delia Parr.
Adoption Beyond Borders by Rebecca J. Compton
Viola in Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani
A Confident Heart by Renee Swope
I always love your book lists! You have such great pics and i’ve looked at them whenever I’ve been at a loss for what to read.
Thank you, Amy!! I love sharing them and I’m glad they’ve benefitted you 🙂
I have had to return 4 (!!!) books to the library unread this past month. I am so sad, but am reading articles for school and working on other things. I miss it, but soon I will have time again!
Aww, I’m sorry Ellie! I’ve had to do that in the past as well, but there’s always more time in the future! I hope school is going well for you 🙂
It’s so easy to go through reading phases and non-reading phases! I definitely do that. So glad you’ve found some books you’re loving. Have you read The Language of Flowers?? I think you’d love it.
I’m glad I’m not the only one that goes through reading phases! I actually haven’t read The Language of Flowers! I am going to look it up right now 🙂
Love it! About to get a week’s break from school and I can’t WAIT to catch up on leisurely reading!
Yay! I am so excited for you! I hope you blog about what you read during your break 🙂
Interesting selections Allie. Are you on Goodreads? Add me if you are! 🙂
Thanks Stephen! I have a Goodreads account, but (sadly) never use it! If I get back on, I will totally add you!
These all sound so interesting! I’m looking them up on Goodreads now! 🙂
Thanks, Rach! I can’t wait to dig into them, haha. I hope you find some books you like 🙂
