There will never be too many books I can read! Especially being away the other week, I felt “re-kindled” to my love of reading (though not with a ‘kindle’ but paper book – ha!). Not being able to put a book down is such a good feeling … especially when I don’t fall asleep after reading a single (if that!) page. If I continue reading a the pace I have been, I’ll hopefully have some others to add to the current list. But for now, here are a few on the summer line up:
1. Wild at Heart by John Eldredge. Before leaving on trip to Idaho, I quickly skimmed the shelves for a book to grab. I’ve always wanted to read this book, because what woman doesn’t want to “discover the secret of a man’s soul”?! So far, it’s been a cool perspective looking into how/what a man sees as adventure and life. Good read for men and women alike and great for a mama of boys (like me!).
2. Captivating by Stasi & John Eldredge. Years ago (10 years ago maybe?), I read this and I was in a very different season. A season probably not wanting to accept some of the truth being shared. Starting to read Wild at Heart, I couldn’t help but think – I need to read this again! Can’t wait to sink my teeth into it and receive new wisdom.
3. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. Since it’s release, there has been such a buzz around this book. When I was at Costco, I decided to pick it up and give my go at a novel once again. It’s so thick … it feels like a summer read!
4. Gaining Heaven’s Perspective by Julian Adams. Another book that is on our shelves from one in Matt’s collection(s). Hoping to gain some new (if not heavenly!) perspective and be refreshed.
5. Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee. (not pictured above) I have yet to pick this book up from the bookstore, but really can’t wait to read this one. To Kill A Mockingbird is one book that I remember reading over different summers – so why wouldn’t the book, featuring some of the same characters only 20 years later, be a summer classic as well?! I love that the manuscript was found only last year but written from the 1950s. Very excited this book came to print!
Any good reads you can suggest for my next list?
