Here’s my end of summer reading (still a little heavy on the fiction side!)
The only non-fiction book I finished was Free of Me: Why Life is Better When It’s Not About You by Sharon Hodde Miller. I really enjoyed the middle part of the book where she talks about “Seven Mirrors” that reflect areas of our life we tend to make about ourselves. For example, there are chapters on “When You Make Your Appearance about You,” “When You Make Your Friendships about You,” and “When You Make Your Church about You.” The final part of the book shares four ways we can get free of focusing on ourselves. I wish this part of the book had been a bit longer, so that the ways we can make those changes could have been more fully developed.
As for fiction, I read two books by Jaime Jo Wright, The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond and The House on Foster Hill. Honestly, the first one was a little weird, and not necessarily something I’d normally read. However, it was obviously entertaining enough to get me to read her other book!
A Sparrow in Terezin is another great book by Kristy Cambron. It’s a sequel to The Butterfly and the Violin that I read last month. I followed that up with her book The Ringmaster’s Wife. I’ve really enjoyed all of Kristy’s books! I have one left to read, and it’s on my list for September.
Should be a quiet Saturday at home here…not a usual occurrence lately, so I’m looking forward to it. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
