Books Read in April 2016

In spite of the crazy month of April, I managed to read A LOT. This is because I was able to take advantage of the many snippets of wait time that I had, especially while Andrew was a soccer practice and CCD or waiting to hear about Michael.

Plain Paradise by Beth Wiseman. Good book! It is a part of a series of books that includes Plain Pursuit.

Plain Pursuit by Beth Wiseman. I think I liked this even better than Plain Paradise! I got both of these books from the library and I am so glad that I did.

A Dream of Miracles by Ruth Reid. There are some good points to this story but, sadly, I didn’t enjoy this book that much. I gave the book two (2) stars in my review which you can read here.

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee. I have been wanting to read this book for a while and finally got a chance! It was pretty good. You can read my review of the book here.

Family Affair by Debbie Macomber. This is a sweet book. I really enjoyed this story.

Ben Franklin of Old Philadelphia. I read this with Andrew. It was one of his history books but we would up reading it for pleasure, too. It is a good book!

The Secret by Beverly Lewis. I used to be a fan of her books but now I just find them a little over the top. I just couldn’t get into this book and wound up just turning the pages to get it done.

Salad Recipes: Super foods Kale. It was free so I snagged a copy because I keep hearing how good kale is. I’ve used it in a few smoothie recipes but this book also has recipes for salads and main dishes that I want to try.

Fast and Easy Clean Eating Cookbook by Heather Choate. This book as some good looking recipes that I want to try. The tone of the book is a little dry and repetitive but there are good suggestions on going organic on a budget, and how to easily incorporate clean eating into your diet.

For Mercie’s Sake by Sharon Srock. In some ways, this book is very sad but also inspiring.

How to Say No: 10 Steps to Saying No by Matthew Lewis Browne. This book was okay. There was a lot of repetition but there were some snippets of takeaways.

Looking at this list, I have a little bit of a theme: Amish love-inspired novels and cookbooks. LOL! What have you been reading lately? Do share in the comments!

As for May, I don’t have any specific book planned, and I doubt I will read as much as I did this month!, but I do want to try and read at least a few books. We will see what happens. 🙂

Books Read in March 2016

March was the opposite of February. I actually didn’t get much reading done. However, I am just happy that I got any reading done! In any case, here is what I’ve read:

1. The Power of Broke by Daymond John. I LOVED this book. You can read my review here.

2. The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace. I am reading this as part of a book study I am doing with some friends from the homeschooling co-op. We are getting ready to discuss chapter seven (aff). All I can say about this book is that it is CHALLENGING in so many ways!

3. The Power of Intent by Tom Meitner. This book was pretty good. My review for this book will be published tomorrow (Thursday).

Of course, I also have been reading the Mercy Bible Study. For April, I do not have any specific books in mind. I will keep up with the bible/book study and I’m sure I will find some books to read. I always do!

What are you reading this month?
