Happy Book Day friends!
I really look forward to this post each and every month. The books you ladies suggest have filled my spare time with so much joy!
Confession: I read fewer books this month for one reason and one reason only…
…I had to finish binge watching Gilmore Girls. Sigh. I’m honestly relieved it’s over for two reasons: one, I now know how it ends…I was dyyyyyyying to know! And two, I can focus on other things now…you know, like my life.
And bonus today…Narci is starting a new series where you link up with posts about books, so today, I’m linking up with her too! To participate in he Carpool Book Club, click here.
Okay…so, here is what I read this month…
Well, I’ve read all of Bethenny Frankel’s books, so when her new one came out in April, I thought I should read it too. I Suck At Relationships So You Don’t Have To is a book with 10 rules for not screwing up relationships. She pretty much tells you what she always does wrong in a relationship so that you can hopefully avoid her mistakes. If you love Bethenny and have read her other books, you’ll think this one is pretty funny too. She’s very “Bethenny” in this book…and if you know Bethenny, then you know what I mean.
I mentioned Flash on my What’s Up Wednesday post. This is such a sweet little memoir about a mom who finds a homeless donkey and in raising him, really realizes a lot about herself, her faith and how the Lord is working through her. This is really a feel-good book.
I read Beyond Orange County this month too. This author was on the Real Housewives of Orange County, but her book is more about her faith and living a life for Jesus than the TV show. She even includes Bible study questions in case you want to use this book as a study. I loved this book! I thought Lydia was very sincere and genuine, I appreciated how she used a lot of scripture and really showed how the Lord worked in and through her.
I feel like I must apologize. You ladies have been recommending Elin Hilderbrand books to me for almost a year now and I just now read my first one. What is wrong with me?!?! These books are EXACTLY what I love to read most! I’ve already bought a second Hilderband book to read and plan on reading many more after that. I started with The Matchmaker and it is the perfect little read. I highly recommend it if you’re going out of town or need a beach read…love, love, love her writing!
And then I read Let. It. Go. by Karen Ehman. Oh mamas, this is a great book for you to read! Not just moms, but all of us ladies can benefit from this book on faith. In fact, after I read this book, I quoted it several times to myself during the month. Sometimes, you just have to let it all go and focus on your faith. Such a great read that can truly be life changing.
So, there you have it friends! My five books for May. As always, I covet your recommendations in the comment section. Summer is here! I have places to go and many more books to read :).
As always, you can see a complete list of the books I’ve read in 2015 here.
