Whoa!! It's been over two months since I've shared any books with you guys! That first month of our move in made my reading pretty much completely stop, but since then I've picked it back up. I have some good ones to share with you today.
The Matchmaker is a cute romantic novel that takes place on Nantucket. Never in my life have I wanted to go there more! For some reason the night I finished Tab wasn't up for boarding a plane and heading there like I was. #nocluewhy
I really loved the Nightingale. When the Nazis invade France, we get to see two sisters different perspectives and how they handle the situations set before them. I was on the edge of my seat throughout this entire book. It was a good one!
I remember when Shay handed me this book thinking, "Uh...a book about a donkey". You guys it was great! The author does a fabulous job teaching us some lessons about faith and they're all things she learned through this donkey.
We just thought Chris Harrison was made to be the Bachelor host. He has other skills!! Homeboy can WRITE! For real! This book was a great chick-lit read. I don't even know how to give you a tease without giving anything away! haha! But...if you like a good girly read, check this one out!
Do you guys remember Shay's Talk Amongst Yourselves this summer about your favorite books? I read through the comments and ordered a couple that stood out. Longing for Paris was one of those recommendations and thank you to whoever recommended it! The author has always longed to go to Paris, but in this book she's decided to find Paris in her everyday life...in savoring your food (just for an example. She includes her faith throughout the book. It was a GREAT read! Just one of those books that makes you want to be a better mom. You know what I'm talking about??
I am a big Liane Moriarty fan, but this one wasn't my favorite. I loved the beginning and the ending, but in the middle I was waiting and waiting and waiting to figure out the secret. I felt like it was a lot of waiting (if that makes any sense).
The kiddos and I watched Inside Out this summer. Everyone enjoyed it! If you haven't seen it, those feelings...anger, sadness, joy, and disgust make up Riley's conscience and we get to see them fighting to be the one in control. Really cute movie the kiddos!
After seeing this movie, my kids were fighting over something and I stopped them and had them open their mouths and started saying, "Joy! Joy!" Like I was looking for her in their mouths. It totally changed the moment from tense to us all laughing.
Someone else recommended this book on Shay's blog, and I'm thankful for them! Again, this book has lots of things positive moms do. Most are things we all know to do, but just being reminded helps us as moms sometimes (I think). I'm about halfway through, but I'd definitely recommend it.
I've read one other Mary Kay Andrews books and I really liked it! The story is so good, but it's so long! haha! So far, a florist is having a tough time keeping her business afloat and she's had a run in with a cute neighbor over her dog. I see a love interest soon. Wink-wink! I'll keep you posted!
What are you guys reading??
