My Reading List

Books I have Read Lately

Books I have read lately that are worth mentioning.

My reading life lately has been slow.  I was telling a friend the other day that the last book I read left a bad taste in my mouth, and it has detered me from picking up my usual genre of books. I have been in a romance novel phase here lately.  I generally tend to read more romance during the Summer time. I am not sure why, I guess its because of all the heat.

Anywho, I won’t mention the name of the book that left me feeling blah towards romance novels. I will mention some other books that I have read this Summer that I truly enjoyed.  This list is in no particular order.

  1. Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur.  I actually picked this book up from Walmart about a year ago and for whatever reason never got around to reading it.  I finally picked it up and started reading it at the beginning of the summer. This book for me was a slow read. This book is a series of poems. At first, I was kind of taken aback, because of how simply written the book is.  Once I got over that, I was able to enjoy the poetry in the book. I enjoyed more than one poem from this book and will be looking for more books by this author.
  2. The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce. This book had me in tears. It is so beautifully written. I missed more than a few hours of sleep, because I had to finish reading this one. I was a little shocked at the ending.  The entire book is beautiful and shows how we must all come to terms with what life has given us.
  3. This Is Just My Face:Try Not to Stare by Gabourey Sidibe. I have watched the movie Precious and because of that movie, I honeslty didn’t realize how many layers there were to Gabourey Sidibe.  This book had me laughing, crying and in deep thought. I truly love her story. She is a beautiful soul. While reading this memoir, I did do some self reflecting and some self adjusting. I am so glad I picked this book up.
  4. The Betrayal (Abram’s Daughter #2) by Beverly Lewis. I have already purchased the third book in this series and am so looking forward to reading it uninterrupted. Book #2 in this series really had me heated. I am slightly disgusted with how Sadie is behaving. No Spoilers though. I hope she finally gets her head on straight and starts acting like the big sister she is. Leah is still a beautiful soul and I know she will be blessed for staying true to her upbringing. #teamleah

It is starting to cool down a little outside so I am looking forward to reading a good thriller or fantasy.  I may jump right into book 3 of the Abram’s Daughter’s Series or I may wait until spring. I would hate for Sadie’s actions to ruin my holiday season LOL.
