December Twitterature

twitterature-graphic1With only 15 days left of 2013, I’m kind of in a reading race to finish all the books I unwittingly started in the past month or so and then never finished. This is quite the departure from my normal, very methodical reading habits. Here’s three I can now check off my list.

Linking up with Anne for this month’s Twitterature.

Packing Light: Thoughts on Living Life with Less Baggage by Allison Vesterfelt

A memoir/travelog about a 50-state road trip taken by the author and her friend after they quit their jobs and sold most of their possessions. An engaging read with poignant observations throughout.

Check out my full review here.

Tell Your Time: How To Manage Your Schedule So You Can Live Free by Amy Lynn Andrews

Her tech blog is immensely helpful, and so is this quick (and inexpensive) read. Amy shares her time management system but the real help comes from defining your roles and goals – which she walks you through. #ebook

More on my own roles and goals coming soon!

Reinventing Rachel by Alison Strobel

Fast-paced narrative that doesn’t shy away from real-life themes and struggles like addiction, divorce, and mental disorders. The second novel by Alison that I’ve enjoyed this year. #notyourtypicalchristianfiction (Bonus: The paperback is bargain priced right now!)

Reflections on this author coming at the end of the month when I join Sarah for an end of the year book list link-up. You should join in too!

    1. Luckily, I hadn’t set a specific goal for this year or my spasmodic reading habits would totally stress me out… I hope you have enjoyable reads planned for the end of the year!

    1. It was quite good – I actually finished it just today. I listened to the audiobook version and it was fun to hear Ally’s story in her own voice.

  1. Great recommendations Emily! (I actually met Allison very briefly at Emily Freeman’s barn event last month, and chatting with her about Packing Light really made me want to read it! :) I’m now adding it to my behemoth long to-read list–I’ll look forward to reading your full review. Also, wanted to say THANKS MUCH for telling folks about my book linkup at the end of the month – so kind of you! I’m very excited to read your post! Blessings and Joy to you and yours this Christmas!

    1. I’m pretty envious that you got to meet Emily AND Ally! (I think authors make me more starstruck than celebrities…). I totally understand about the behemoth to-read list. Mine is pretty appalling. I am so looking forward to the end of the year book link-up!
