What I’m Reading: Spring 2016

I’m not ashamed to admit this: I am currently reading five different books.

Some of you may think this is crazy, and some of you might think it is totally normal. It’s just how I go about reading. I always have and probably always will. I’m actually reading four books and listening to one audiobook, but that totally counts as reading, so my total is at five.

Here’s what I’m reading, because they are all amazing and you’ll want to read them too…

Reading Spring 2016 Pin

Pride & Prejudice

This is my audiobook of choice for two reasons: I’ve tried to start reading it many, many times and always failed AND it was free to listen to from my library! It has been absolutely delightful to hear and I’m almost done with it. Audiobooks have won me over, so tell me your favorites!

Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World

I’m eating up Kristen’s words just like I knew I would because she writes real, beautiful, hard truth. This is my parenting book for the moment and it is really making me think about how we do life as a family. This quote jumped off the page at me the other day: “It’s our job to teach our children to be different from their natural bent toward sin.” AMEN.

Tales from Another Mother Runner

I’m training for my first marathon and I need all the inspiration I can get as race day approaches. The Hubby got me a signed copy and I’ve been intentionally saving it for these last few weeks leading up to the marathon. These ladies always make me want to kick butt with my training AND make me laugh at the same time. Just what I need right now.

On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness

My reading of the Wingfeather Saga has begun and I am hooked. Andrew Peterson is a creative genius, both in music and in writing. I can totally see now why our oldest son is in love with this series. It is just so magical and I want to immerse myself in the books and not come out until I read all four. See you in a few months…

Wild and Free

I’ve known this book was in the works for quite a while and I’ve been excited about it ever since hearing the topic: this wild and free life we’re called to live as women of God. This JUST showed up in the mail last week and I’m part of the launch team, so I’ll be diving in right away so I can tell you all about it! Jess and Hayley are a gift and I know these words will be, too! Just go ahead and pre-order your copy now.

YOUR TURN: Talk to me about what you’re reading right now! My reading list is a mile long, but I always love good recommendations! And include those fave audiobooks!
