I just love sharing my recent reads with you :). I think one of the reasons I love sharing them so much is because you give me such great feedback and and wonderful recommendations for the following month! Two of the books I read this month came straight from your suggestions last month, so for that, I’m incredibly thankful!
This is my third Liane Moriarty book to read in four months. I read Three Wishes back in November and then What Alice Forgot last month…and next month, I’m reading The Husband’s Secret. To say that I’m a big fan is now a understatement. She is a really good story teller and her books never disappoint. Big Little Lies is equally as delicious and I enjoyed every page. I gave my mom all three of these books and she loved them too. If you’re reading Moriarty along with me, go ahead and grab this book…and you should probably get The Husband’s Secret too. I’m pretty sure next month, I’ll love that book as well.
Erika gave me Kristen Welch’s Rhinestone Jesus to read and I have to be honest…the title in itself sold me :). This book is for Christians looking to really take their faith to that next level. If you’re tired of not really living out your faith, if your walk with the Lord has become stagnate and monotonous…then this is the book for you. Out of all of the books I read this month, this was the one that I quoted to Andrew the most. You know, at dinner or when we were in the car, I would start telling him bits and pieces about this book and sharing with him the ideas and suggestions Kristen offers. This is a really good book for your faith.
Oh I loved Hot Chocolate in June (isn’t the title so cute?!?)! This is a true story about how Holly left home in Nebraska to go to South Africa…and how chasing Jesus brought her to her South African husband Oscar and a life she never expected. It’s the best kind of love story (one where Jesus is in the center!).
Last month, you ladies told me to read Lessons from Madame Chic and so I did…and LOVED IT! I might do a Shade all about my love of French culture because according to your comments, I’m not alone. This book is 20 lessons the author learned while living in Paris for six months. I loved every single one of them (and am trying to implement them in my own life!).
So, that’s what I’ve read so far this month. To see all of my book reviews and suggestions, click here.
And as always, I love recommendations from you! I already have a list going for March but there’s always room for one or two more.
On the foodie blog…
…Meal Planning Monday. Stay in, stay cozy, and enjoy a great supper.
And one last thing, I love, love, love when Sheaffer honors mamas who have kiddos with special needs. Today, she is giving away a $1000 Loft gift card to a mom of a child with special needs. Click here to see the contest and enter to win or nominate someone you know. These mamas are all so amazing.
See you tomorrow…I’m doing a Shade on my favorite beauty products :).
