Since I finished up the final book in the Paige series at the beginning of May, I've been spending the last few weeks doing something I rarely get the chance to do.
(By the way, 15 bonus points to whoever can finish the quote in the title of this post and name the person who said it!)
When I was growing up, I would get completely lost in books. I would sometimes forget to eat I would be so busy reading. It's quite a bit harder now with a busy two year-old around and for some reason, both boys I live with like to eat. ;)
Since Jon has been busy every night with homework for his Master's class this summer, I've had lots of time to read this month! So I raided my mom's bookshelf and finally started reading some of the free books I'd been piling up from Amazon Kindle. ;)
Here's what I've been reading so far this summer: Jesus Calling (by Sarah Young) - I love, love, love, LOVE this devotional! It's written by a woman who kept a prayer journal for a year except instead of recording her prayers to God (like I think most of us do!), she took the verses she was reading and turned them into notes from the Lord. At the end of every day's reading, she includes a list of verses that led to that day's thoughts. My new favorite place to read this is in the morning on my back patio with a hot cup of coffee. :)
Fools Rush In (by Janice Thompson) - This novel is so funny! Love the story of an Italian family living in Galveston, Texas trying to run both a pizza parlor and a wedding consultant company. The story is told through daughter Bella's eyes and it's a very quick, fun read!
A Hope Undaunted (by Julie Lessman) - I don't read very much historical fiction, but this novel was free on Kindle a few weeks ago and I snatched it up then. ;) It's about a large family and set just before the Great Depression.
Evidence of Mercy (by Terri Blackstock) - I read this book about ten or more years ago and loved it and just reread it this week and could barely put it down again.
