What I Read Wednesday: 1 May 2019
I missed posting last week because I was determined to finish Loving My Actual Neighbor on Wednesday before I posted. (I didn’t. 🤷🏻♀️) Here’s what I read...
Book 22: The Perfect Nanny
I explored our library’s ebook checkout system, and came across this one. It was odd, but I kept reading because I wanted to know what happened! The main characters are relatable, for the most part, but the nanny is an odd duck. And that’s all I’m gonna say. 😬🔪
Book 23: The Wedding Night
I am a Sophie Kinsella fan from way back. Her books are funny and farcical, and they just pick you up and carry you along to a great ending. If you love light and funny and a little crazy, this one’s for you.
Book 24: Loving My Actual Neighbor, by Alexandra Kuykendall
This one took a little longer to read because I needed to sit with pieces of it. It is a great read if you are called to love your neighbor (ahem-we ALL are) and need some pointers on practical ways to do so. I am so grateful I ran across this book. I bought it on a whim, and I don’t regret it one bit. I highly recommend it!
Book 25: I’m Possible, by Jeremy Cowart
I pre-ordered this one for my Boy, but knew I’d get to read it first. It arrived while I was working through book 24, and man, was it tempting to dive in! I’m glad I waited, though. Once I opened it, I read it cover to cover. Such good stuff, y’all. I saw @jeremycowart at a conference a couple of years ago, and his video and talk made such a huge impact. I’m a huge fan of his work, but an even bigger fan of his heart. My heart hurts for him this morning at the news of his FA diagnosis. At the same time, I am so hopeful—for him and the FA community. I can’t wait to see how God uses Jeremy to share stories and bring awareness. ❤️
Book 26: The Next Right Thing, by Emily P. Freeman
I feel like this one is hidden down here, but it’s been in a lot of my social media posts this past few weeks. Buy the book. Listen to her podcast. Follow Emily P. Freeman online. Read her words. Soak it all in—she is balm for your soul, friends. And a wonderful mentor for all of us at hope*writers!
