ahh to read again

I love to read. My pile of books I want to read continues to grow higher and higher. I have three going right now. The one thing I miss from before having a child is the fact that I used to be able to read more than a chapter at a time! Over vacation, I had some great free time and read a few books. (I got to sit and read for HOURS at a time! It was amazing!)
I would suggest any and all of them.

Crazy Love by Frances Chan- A wake up call about living a life set apart- not always thinking about and planning for tomorrow- because we truly don't know we have tomorrow.

The Principle of the Path by Andy Stanley- An easy read. The Principle of the Path: The road you are on leads to your destination. Simple concept, hard to live out!

Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult- A good fiction book. I love to escape into the worlds of others. This was about a school shooting at a high school and the story of teens who struggle with image, self-esteem, popularity, and bullying.

What is on your reading list this summer?

A Child Called It (2nd time reading, I don't know why!?!?)

Love & Respect

The House That Cleans Itself

A Karen Kingsbury that I can't remember the title to right now :)

I am anxiously awaiting Mary Chapman's new book coming out about the loss of her daughter and finding a way to move forward with all the pieces left from a tragedy.

Mmmmmmm... i love books :)
