5. Talking to you about books
So, basically…I could not be happier :).
This month, I read four very different and very good books! Two memoirs, one fiction and one faith based book. I have a big stack that I’m making my way through for next month’s review. Here’s hoping, you find the time to read next month too!
I’ve always been an Amy Robach fan, so this month, I read her new book Better about her journey through breast cancer. Goodness, this book was real. At times, it was uncomfortably real and authentic. She not only chronicles her journey through the disease, but how it affected her relationships with everyone (husband, children, co-workers, etc). I also thought the book was hopeful. If you’re a Robach fan, you will enjoy her raw look on life.
Last month, I read book one in this three book series by Elin Hilderbrand set during Christmas time. Book one was Winter Street, this year she came out with Winter Stroll and then next year, is the final book in the series. You have to read Winter Street first before you read this one…but once you do, you’ll want to read this one too. They’re about a family during the holidays. It’s easy to read, entertaining, and will put you in the holiday spirit.
Girl Meets Change is technically my faith based book for the month, but really, anyone going through a transition in life will relate to this. The author’s husband is in the military and she writes a lot about moving and picking up her life over and over again. She touches on some great points…mainly how let’s face it, change usually sucks and is unwelcomed…but, it’s a necessary part of life and you can make the most of it…even thrive during it.
And holy cow…the most fascinating/couldn’t put it down/best read of my month was Troublemaker by Leah Remini. Wow. Okay, so I’ve always been a Remini fan because I looooove The King of Queens…so, I’ve been watching her lately on all of the big shows (20/20, The View, Good Morning America) talk about leaving Scientology and decided I needed to read her book. Um, it was just so interesting. Everything about it is interesting. I didn’t just read it, I pretty much read it aloud to Andrew because even he was into her story. If you’ve ever been interested in Scientology or let’s say…Tom Cruise, then you won’t be able to put this book down. So. Good.
