Okay, so I love to know what you all are reading. I think some of the best books I've read have been recommendations from friends. And in case you are looking for something to read also...well here is what I've read in the last two weeks, what I'm reading now and what is still lingering on my list to read.
1. And the Shofar Blew by Francine Rivers- love this author and although I'm not too far into it I am really enjoying this book.
2. My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers- this is a devotional and I recently gave this to my dad who seemed to be enjoying it so I got it for us. Boy and I try to do one of the devotionals daily. Doesn't always happen, but we try. This will most definitely get you asking questions and thinking. Love reading this with boy!
1. Pretty is What Changes by Jessica Queller- My cousin just gave me this book this past weekend. I dropped my other reads and started on it right away because I thought it was cool the author was a television writer and has written for "Gilmore Girls" and "One Tree Hill". Needless to say I finished it at 4:00 in the morning two days later. I will not lie, it's a very difficult read if you've dealt personally with breast cancer. I sobbed many times thinking of my grandmother, aunt, and friends that have all been effected by cancer. It really opened my eyes to the medical side of it as the author is tested and found to have the BRCA gene mutation. A lot to take in, but an incredible read of this author's courageous journey. I'd love to know any of your thoughts on the BRCA test and how it may apply scripturally.
2. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini- I finally got around to reading this after it had been on my list for a year. Amazing story of friendship and love. Be sure to read it though before you rent the movie, they sort of leave off some parts from the book.
Want to read:
1. Things I Want my Daughter to Know by Elizabeth Noble
2. The Year of Fog by Michelle Richmond
3. How to Be Lost by Amanda Eyre Ward
Oh this list could seriously go on and on, but I'll leave it at that for now.
Any recommendations of what you've recently read be sure to add.
