In the past couple months, I have been doing more writing and less reading. I’d like to balance the two a little more evenly and so I set a goal. Because I’ve found that items you want to do are not accomplished by guesswork and hope. My friend texted me the other day to ask what I’m reading because she’s been so busy working full-time this school year, she hasn’t been afforded as much time to read. However, I really only had two suggestions for her. So today I’m sharing 5 good books to read.
To accomplish a task, a person must first be intentional, right? On this Whimsical Wednesday, I’m sharing the 5 books I want to read this summer. I’d love to read a couple of fiction books, but to tell you the truth, I’m doubting that so much that I didn’t include them in my goal. Here are the 5 books I want to read this summer:
I’ve been a fan of CS Lewis since I read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in 4th grade. I never knew this book existed until recently when it popped up as a Goodreads recommendation. After investigating, I’m guessing I may not agree with the mastermind author Lewis point for point, but I read his works to provoke my thoughts on the topics he ponders.
The Color of Rain: How Two Families Found Faith, Hope, and Love in the Midst of Tragedy
I received an email with an excerpt from this book and I could not stop reading it! That’s unlike me, as marketing-type email in my inbox is typically scanned or ditched. Just being honest. So I finished the excerpt, then started reading the reviews and within just a few minutes, I knew this HAD to go on my summer book list.
On Writing Well, 30th Anniversary Edition: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction
I never want to waste anyone’s time when they read my articles. For all the reasons to write, if one doesn’t do it with all there is within their soul, then why write? I can’t wait to dig in to this book and improve my writing skills.
For Women Only, Revised and Updated Edition: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men
Shaunti Feldhan is a new author to me, but wow, I’ve heard the ravings about her works! I love that she is a researcher and I never want to be so comfortable in my marriage that I think I have no places that need growth.
Twirl: A Fresh Spin at Life
A few weeks ago, I was privileged to meet Patsy Clairmont at Women of Faith and I just love the longevity she has in the ministry! The last book I read from her was Stained Glass Hearts: Seeing Life from a Broken Perspective and it really was such a sweet surprise of a book. I had no idea what to expect, but that book was so beautiful that I remember many details from it,even after years have passed. So I’m excited to see what Patsy has to offer in this new work.
Ok Friends! It’s time to hear from you! What are you planning to read this summer or what are you reading now? I’d LOVE to know; so leave a comment, will you?
