Weekend Reading Vol. 19 - Book Edition

Linking up with Kelly. (And super jealous that she's going to get to see Pope Francis!)

This week's weekend reading has a twist...it's about actual books! I've been craving books again lately, but I have this problem where my brain struggles to turn everything else off long enough to read. Or there is just constant noise around me at all times and I can't concentrate. (Can I get an "Amen" from fellow mothers of small children??) But that hasn't stopped me from downloading some Kindle books and making some library trips! (I shared a little bit about this project the other day, actually.) So here's what's on my shelf these days.

I've been reading this one forever, but I'm finally about a third of the way through and am starting to hit my stride. The characters are starting to come alive for me, and it's starting to feel like a familiar place to visit. Don't you love it when you reach that point in a book?

This book was the inspiration for a whole blog post, and admittedly, it isn't the kind you read cover to cover. It's the kind where you read the entire beginning, and then slowly work your way through some book lists. (Although, I guess you could still read the introduction for each individual book list.) It's incredibly readable (even for a tired mom brain), but it's challenging me to keep studying - even four years post graduate school!

I just picked this one up from the library yesterday, because after hearing it recommended so many times by so many people, I just couldn't ignore it anymore. I do love Lewis's writing style, so I think it will be an excellent read, once I start actually reading it.

This one was recommended to me by my dear friend and fellow podcast co-host, so I could really ignore it! We had hit a point where some of the tantrums and fits around here were getting ridiculous and we needed some more tools in our toolbox. I'm a good chunk of the way through it, but it's been sitting half-read on the Kindle for a while now. Soooo...maybe finish it at some point?

I love Modern Mrs. Darcy, so I expected to enjoy her book. I actually bought it awhile back, but I'm at just the right juncture in life to read it now. Like everything else she does, it's very well written, and definitely worth the money!

I haven't read this one yet, but it's no secret that I'm a a fan of Rhonda's work and enjoy picking her brain for wisdom. So, even though I haven't read it yet, I'm recommending it and planning on reading it in the near future!

Aaaand that's it. Have a lovely weekend!
