I had to squeeze this post in because I realized I had some darn good reads to share with you. What used to be called Twitterature, is now Quick Lit over at Modern Mrs. Darcy, and I'm linking up. But first, I just wanted to remind you about my newsletter-- have you subscribed yet? I about to send a new edition out and in it, I'll be sharing some fun blog news. If you want to subscribe, you can do so here. Here are the books I finished in the last month.
I already told you how much I loved it but I'll mention it once more-- One Plus One was one of my favorites this year. I checked it out through my library-- have you checked to see if you can check out books electronically yet?
My library uses the OverDrive system and I can request and check out books on my Kindle really easily. They don't have everything, but they have a pretty good selection of bestsellers.
Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham (yes, that Lauren Graham)
This was a fun read-- it's about a single girl, living in NYC, trying to make it as an actress. It wasn't the most thrilling novel and I think she could have developed the romance a bit more, but overall, I enjoyed it (and learned a lot about show business!). I hope Lorelai, I mean, Lauren, writes more books.
Finding God at the Kitchen Sink by Maggie Paulus
This is such a great devotional for moms. It's raw, it's real, but it's also beautiful. It reminds of the spirit of the 10 on 10 series-- beauty in the ordinary-- but infused with the gospel and snippets of scripture. Each entry reads like a blog post and is coupled with personal photos, which I love as well. Oh, and if you get it, your copy isn't dirty-- it was designed to look like that (took me a while to figure that out ;) ).
Starry Night by Debbie Macomber
This was an impulse check-out (I just made that phrase up). I saw it on the library website and thought, yeah, I need a cheesy Christmas romance to read over Thanksgiving break. It was quick and easy, fun and indeed romantic.
Teaching from Rest by Sarah Mackenzie
I also finished this one over Thanksgiving. My lovely friend Sarah wrote it and it really spoke to me where I'm at with homeschooling. Sarah is a mom of six young ones and has a lovely philosophy on teaching that was really inspiring and as you can imagine, restful, to read about. I highly recommend this ebook to anyone homeschooling (or considering). She also offers an audio companion which I'm excited to listen to.
Delancey by Molly Wizenburg
I adored this book. In fact, I finished it last night and promptly handed it to David with an enthusiastic encouragement that he start reading it before I have to return it to the library. I want to cook all her recipes, and go eat pizza at Delancey. I really love Molly's writing style-- she's very real and approachable, but at the same time has a lovely way with words... and with words about food. I loved it even more than A Homemade Life.
