What We're Reading

This summer I've gotten a lot of reading done! It's been such a wonderful treat. Since Anderson is down to just one long nap each day it really opens up my afternoon for some reading! I still try to read at night when I get in bed but I'm usually just too tired twitter is way more interesting {confession}.

I LOVE hearing about great books that other people love and I also LOVE sharing about books I love too! 

What I've Been Reading:

1,000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp

This book is seriously a perspective changer. I'm actually about to re-read it so I can digest it further {complete with a highlighter & pen} ;-) Seriously, I can't recommend this book enough!

These next two books were so much FUN to read! These two women are hilarious and happen to have fun blogs! Plus Sophie Hudson is a Birmingham lady! 

A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet by Sophie Hudson

Sparkly Green Earrings by Melanie Shankle

And of course you know I'm going to be reading up on essential oils! This isn't a cover-to-cover read but it is an invaluable resource for how to properly use essential oils. I use it almost daily!

Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 5th Edition by Gary Young

What Anderson's Been Reading:

I hostessed an Usborne Books party & it was so much fun! The babies got to play with all sorts of fun, new books & the mamas got to play too! We've got quite a few Usborne books on our shelf but these two have been recent favorites that Anderson wants to read all the time! {I'm not kidding!}

At Home: Very First Words

Bedtime: Very First Words

What Andrew's Been Reading:

My hubby's not much of a reader. It's a good day if he's read my blog post. He'd rather go for a run, and I just can't imagine doing anything worse. BUT we are doing this study on Ezekiel together & it has been so good. I don't know why, but it always amazes me at how RELEVANT The Bible is. If you're wanting to read a really relevant book of The Bible, I'd highly recommend Ezekiel!

So, that's what we've been reading; tell me what you've been reading!

  1. Always love good book recommendations! My book club just finished The Forgotten Garden, and it was absolutely spellbinding! I listened to it on audio book, and I was glued to the radio!

  2. Oh! I'm so glad you reminded me about audio books because I just got done listening to 2 great audio books! I'll have to look that one up; thanks!
