I am horrible at picking books to read sometime. No joke. You would think that someone who loves to read as much as I do would be able to just grab any ole book and read through it in a short amount of time. Well. I am not like that. I blame it on the fact that I started off by reading books that mundane authors cannot compare to.
That being said, I have put down so many books lately. Too many to count. :( It drives me crazy, having to put a book down, but if it doesn't grab my interest in the first couple of pages, I can't force myself to continue. I am a very selective reader. And truly, I need to stick to only books written by Christian authors. I don't like bad language in books and I can't read something that makes me blush.
So, last night, I finished an amazing book. I started it back in in the fall of 2014, but I only read a chapter and then I forgot about it! Dumb, I know, but I put it away and it totally escaped my mind. The book was amazing, as I knew it would be, because my favorite author wrote it.
My Instagram caption read this: "Well, that was good. Half a box of Kleenex later, and sobbing quietly in my room, I finished The Family of Jesus. I love Karen Kingsbury's books."
Now that I'm finished with this one, I'm finishing up the book I have on my Nook that I've been reading. It's by Beth Moore, and it's called Feathers From My Nest. It's kind of like a book of memoirs from the days when her girls were little. It appeals to my mama's heart and has made me laugh out loud on several occasions.
As soon as I am done with this one, I will start two more, a fiction and a non-fiction one. They are Love Finds You In Martha's Vineyard by Melody Carlson and Keep It Shut by Karen Ehman.
I asked this a couple weeks ago and want to know again: what's on your nightstand? I would love to know what you're reading, because I am always thinking ahead to my next book. I like to have a fiction and a non-fiction book going at the same time.
Please comment. :)
In other news, today is a day Graham and Drew always look forward to: getting their hairs cut.
Proof that it's needed.
Love to all!
