Recent Reads

The Artist's Daughter (Christian nonfiction, memoir)... This was a good read. My heart ached for her, I could relate to her younger self, and I was so happy when witnessing her growth. I just love faith-based memoir!

Celery juice (charismatic Christian nonfiction, health)... I have loved all of these Medical Medium books so far and the information in them seems to be making a huge difference for my health. This one is book 5 so I'm out of order but still enjoyed it. The original is a better place to start if you're interested but new. 

The Clockmaker's Son (Christian, Middle grade, TGTB book list)... I really enjoyed this story about faith, forgiveness, and so much more. It reminded me a little bit of a Patricia St John novel. Can't wait to pass this one along to my children!  

Ivan and the Hidden Bible (middle grade, Christian, TGTB book list)... This was the fourth book in this series and I liked it just fine. I find the books interesting and enlightening for a piece of history I don't know nearly enough about!

James Herriot's Treasury for Children by James Herriot... (Secular, children's) I am calling this collection middle grade. Each story is available as a long picture book at my library but when they are all together like this they seem like chapters in a delightfully illustrated middle grade. I'm putting this on our 4th grade book list. 

A Promise Kept (Christian, time slip)... I am really liking Robin Lee Hatcher's writing. Her books are recommended for fans of Karen Kingsbury and so far I agree! This one deals with forgiveness, prayer, and marriage struggles. There are some trigger warnings for this one but I enjoyed the ride and keep thinking about it. If you read it, be sure to read the author's note at the end! (But not until the end!)

The Tree House Mystery by Carol Beach York (secular, chapter book)... I found this one at a used book sale and thought it was a pretty fun mystery story for the 3rd grade crowd.

Undistracted by Bob Goff (Christian nonfiction)... I really like Bob Goff books and find myself quite inspired by them. He made a few mild potty humor jokes I don't remember from before but maybe I just didn't pay enough attention in the past.

Unveiling the Past by Kim Vogel Sawyer (contemporary Christian fiction)... I really liked this book- newlywed cold case detectives who are considering starting a family (we are made aware that certain related activities are happening, but not in a graphic way), family history, identity, faith... So good! Also, if you feel like you should read a parenting book but don't like nonfiction? This is your fictionalized parenting book 😁
