Monday, Sept. 12: Three books! One you just read, one you’re currently reading, and one you want to read.
Soooo..obviously this isn’t Monday, the 12th, but yall know how much I love book posts so I knew I’d have to come back to this one when I had a chance.
A book I just read: Shepherding a Child’s Heart by Tedd Tripp
Yall. This was an amazing book, probably my favorite read on parenting ever. If you’re raising kids or plan to raise kids and want some solid Christian advice on training and disciplining children, be sure to check this one out. I absolutely love the heart behind the words and have had to re-think a lot of the ways I’ve been dealing with my girls. I can’t recommend this one enough.
A book I’m currently reading: The Distant Hours by Kate Morton
I’m actually listening to this one while I walk each evening and it’s one of the first audiobooks I’ve truly enjoyed. This is partly due to Kate Morton’s fantastic way with words, but if I’m really honest, I’m pretty much just in love with the narrators perfect English accent. She has the most lyrical voice ever. Plus it’s a super intriguing mystery and makes the miles in the hideous September heat feel more bearable. (Don’t get me started on Texas in September.)
A book I want to read: Secrets of a Charmed Life by Susan Meissner
Totally not gonna lie, this one is on my shelf only because a) the cover is interesting and b) everyone in the whole world seems to have read it and recommended it. I don’t even really know much of what it’s about (except that it’s set in England during the WWII, at least partially), but it’s been on my to-read list forever and I’m finally about to actually get to it.
And here’s my bonus review: Me: A Compendium
I received a complimentary copy of this from Blogging for Books a few weeks ago and gave it to Susannah to fill out and she’s enjoyed it as much as I imagined she would. What I didn’t expect was for Madeline to be just as enthralled as Susannah (because she has very little patience for art/drawing/crafts), so after a few days I ordered a second copy for Madeline to complete as well. It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of kid drawings and it made my heart happy to flip through these books and see their cute art.
**This book was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion via Blogging for Books. All thoughts regarding this book are my own. (And obviously we liked it well enough to purchase another.)
So how about you? Read anything recommendable lately? (Is recommendable even a word?) I love, love, love book suggestions!
