Now that the wedding is over, I've finally had some time to read at a normal pace, and I have loved getting back to it! I'm throwing a little bit of everything into my last few weeks of reading. I would love to hear the progress and content of your summer reading lists! Share them with me in the comment sections beneath this post!
Recently, my big reading goal is to include more non-fiction - specifically history. So I'm currently reading a beautiful and thoughtful portrait of the year 1776. It reads just like a novel, so I'm thinking its a good first step.
I've been wanting to read this second book since I visited the World's Fair exhibit at the Field Museum in Chicago last year. It is the true but terrifying account of the serial killer at Chicago's 1893 World's Fair.
I'm jumping outside my comfort zone with Kite Runner to read about a time and place I know very little about. This is not the type of book I would normally grab, but Ella has raved about it for too long for me to ignore.
This not the first time I've read Pride and Prejudice, but the last time I was in my early high school years. I'm excited to approach this beautiful book with a brand new perspective.
Food for Thought
To be honest, I just finished Looking for Lovely. But it was so recent and so life changing that I need to bring it up. This book should be required reading for every young woman. Annie's writing speaks to your heart like your best friend and your counselor at the same time. She shares her weaknesses and learned wisdom in a way that spoke to me like few books have.
Rising Stong was recommended to me in college and I have watched enough of Brene Brown's Ted talks to know that she brilliant and worth reading.
Pouring into soul shaping books like these is quickly becoming my new favorite way to read.
