Cozy Uo With Some Good Books


All the Pretty Things was an interesting read. Another biography were the author grows up in far from ideal circumstances. Makes me so thankful for the family that I grew up in. Edie had struggled through relationships to find God and struggled to really plant her faith in God. But she did and thrived for it.

Towards the end of the book, her family suffered a house fire. I was encouraged to read the raw emotions that she had at that time as I could totally relate. 

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.


Conspiracy of Silence would be a great book for someone who likes history and a little adventure. I had a hard time getting in the stage that was set for the historical aspect, so I decided to give myself grace to not finish reading.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.

 

In the Shadow of Denali was a fun read about the Alaskan territory. A little romance, suspense, and mystery. Those three things make a book better!

I loved seeing the characters struggle with their relationships with God during the hard times as this helped me to know that I can struggle and grow during my hard times as well.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.



The Kindness Challenge is one of those books that you love to hate. I always thought I was a pretty kind person. Ha! I have how much I struggle at times to show kindness to people. Kindness really is a lot more than just not saying mean things about others.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books


Abraham and Sarah is a very historically accurate book. Now, I am not a history buff at all, so I like when there is some non historical added in to make a book good. Not happening in this book.Not necessarily a bad thing, just hard for me to get into the book. I tried, but after a few chapters, I just couldn't do it.

I am trying to give myself grace to not finish a book that I am not in love with,so I put this book down.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.


 

From This Day Forward was a good book. I enjoy this time period and wonder what it would be like to live a more simple but also more demanding life. This book for me was not a book that I couldn't put down, but I did read it all and did enjoy it! 

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.


 

Happiness is something that I can struggle with as a stay at home mom of littles. So, when I saw this book, I snatched it up. Randy starts the chapters with a few verses to think about and then gives a few pages of his own thoughts to think about the verses.I am enjoying this book in my pursuit to make my happiness genuine. 

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of 60 Days of Happiness.


 

In our Sunday school class at church, we have been going through the life of Jesus, so I was excited about this book.Women were such an important part in the life and ministry of Christ. I want my life to be an important part of Christ's ministry now.

I love how Liz incorporates a lot of Scripture throughout all the chapters of this book.

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a copy of The Women of Easter.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books

Design Your Day was a great quick read. As I was thinking about the next year, and making goals, this book made me think about my goals.

I love how Claire wants people to focus on their goals,but then gives them strategies to be able to get things done so that they can enjoy life.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.








Habit Changers gave a page that had a mantra on the page and then explained about how you can use that mantra in your life.


For me, this book would be a good coffee table book where you could read as time permits. Not really a book that I really wanted to sit down and just dive into.

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a copy of this book.






 Lord, Change My Attitude Before It's Too Late has been a hard one to read because I have needed it so much. I haven't gotten all the way through it because I have had to take my time. 

I like to have a bad attitude and complain too much. This book works on that attitude. Youch. Can't say I am loving this book,but I am needing this book.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books

  You're Saying It Wrong was a fun book to look through. I actually passed this book along to a friend who is big on words. I am sure she enjoyed this book. There are words and phrases in this book that are constantly misused. Those phrases that I actually did use, I used incorrectly. Yikes!

Thanks to Blogging For Books for a copy of this book.








 
Greater Than Gold was a very open look into David Boudia's life. I did appreciate getting to see his honesty and also getting to see his turning his life over to God. What an encouraging read.

Thanks to BookLook for a copy of this book.









Fatal Frost kept me turning! I wasn't feeling the best for a day, and this book got me through. I do love a good action book, and this one fit that bill.

Nancy does a great job of keeping suspense while building up her characters.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.








Earth Psalms is a beautiful book.The pictures are coffee table worthy. My almost 1 year old actually sat and flipped through this book the other day.

The devotional passages are also great. They chapters aren't super long, but they are thought provoking as well.

Thanksto Tyndale for allowing me to give an honest review of this book.

Maggie is 10 Months Old



Maggie is crawling everywhere, standing up, and cruising some. 

Saying mama and dada, even though you won't say dada for Dad. 

Waves.

Sticking out your tongue.

No teeth.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books

The Curated Closet has great pictures which makes it great to flip through. I am really starting to love having less when it comes to clothes. I am at the phase of working on getting items that I truly love.

I really like that this book gives you tips to make your wardrobe be one that you really like.

What I wish that this book had was more tips on figuring out my style. They told me to find pictures that I like and build a style board. I jsut am not that dedicated!

Overall, this was a great book to look through!

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a copy of The Curated Closet.


Next Up: 8 Shifts Great Young Leaders Make was interesting. Our generations definitely has a warped mindset when it comes to a lot of things. So to see what those warped mindsets are and then fix them so that they are positive was a good thought process for me.
 
Thanks to Moody for a copy of Next Up: 8 Shifts Great Young Leaders Make.








The Artisian's Wife is a fun read. I haven't been able to get much time to read Brown Bear, Brown Bear, but when I have, I have enjoyed this book.

The main character in this story is a lady business owner. I am sure that was not popular back in the day, but definitely interesting to think about.

Also, there was an asylum in this book. How interesting that people could get put in there because their family just didn't want them. Talk about abuse!

Thanks to Bethany House for a chance to review this book
