I’m doing something a little different today to share what I’ve been reading. I hope you enjoy this (my first) video. I will work on my “um” usage in the next one :)
I resisted the urge to write a script for this little book chat, so, naturally, I forgot a few things I wanted to say about the books. If you have questions about any of the books, leave a comment or email me – I’d be happy to elaborate.
Here’s more info on the books I mentioned:
Insurgent by Veronica Roth
- I liked Divergent better but will be continue reading the series with the last book, Allegiant, once I finish Rhinestone Jesus.
Pulling Back The Shades: Erotica, Intimacy, and the Longings of A Woman’s Heart by Dannah Gresh and Juli Slattery
- A fantastic read with similar themes: Permission to Speak Freely: Essays and Art on Fear, Confession, and Grace by Anne Jackson
Mommy Time: 90 Devotions for New Moms by Sarah Arthur
Can I Ask That? 8 Hard Questions About God and Faith by Jim Candy, Kara Powell, and Brad Griffin
- A longer review and reflection of this book.
Rhinestone Jesus by Kristen Welch
Too Many Hopkins by Tomie dePaola (apparently not in print anymore, but worth tracking down)
Llama Llama Nighty-Night by Anna Dewdney

So fun! I am definitely going to pick up a few of those…
Loved the video post! Its fun to see you and to watch a post every once in awhile vs. reading. I just finished “One Light Still Shines” by Marie Monville. So so good. If you haven’t read it I would urge you to. It is such a good read and really challenged me to rely on God and have an intimate walk with Him in good and bad times.
I’ve never heard of that book or the author. Thanks for the recommendation, Hannah!
Fun video, Em! I read Divergent and Insurgent and loved them. Allegiant was hard, but it’s one of those series that I’m glad I read. :) Eager to hear your thoughts on that last book!
Just watched your video- loved it! Made me realize how much I miss hanging out with you though. Lookin forward to more of that this summer :)
I am proud to report I finished my first book since we got engaged while on our honeymoon- the happiness project by Gretchen Rubin. Looking forward to more reads- I am very far behind on my 2014 reading challenge!
Yes – Can’t wait to have some Lindszlo time :)
