November Twitterature

twitterature-graphic1Linking up with Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy for another round of Twitterature. I only finished a couple new books, and one that I have read before, but they were are all worth reading!

You can check out all the books I’ve read this year here.

A Beautiful Mess: A Perfectionist’s Journey Through Self-Care by Kristin Ritzau

More clinical than @EmilyPFreeman’s lyrical approach in Grace For The Good Girl, but same themes of hope and freedom for perfectionists. The Second half, in which Ritzau explores the five areas in our lives we need to examine before acceptance is possible was enlightening.

A Million Little Ways: Uncover The Art You Were Made To Live by Emily FreemanAnother winner from @EmilyPFreeman. Powerful and timely encouragement to live your art despite living in a world of comparison and distraction.

Bread and Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table with Recipes by Shauna Niequist

It’s no secret that I love this book. This is my second read through of the year. Read more about why it’s one of my favorites of 2013 here, here, here, and here.

Speaking of Bread and Wine… Here’s the last two installments of my expanded discussion guide for the book:

October Twitterature

It’s been awhile since I linked up with Anne for Twitterature. Much of my reading the past few months has been rereading… I read the Harry Potter series again and Tim and I just started reading The Chronicles of Narnia aloud before bed. I’ve only read two new books in the meantime.

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain

I can’t stop talking/thinking about this book! Examines all angles of an introvert’s inner workings and how they function in an extroverted world. A must read for introverts; worth the read for extroverts. #INFJ

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling

Writer and star of The Office riffs on her childhood, love life, and time in NY.  A couple chuckles. No gaffaws. A decent read for my 12 hour day of airplane travel, but not as funny as I was hoping (and certainly not worth buying).  #funnierontv

Currently Reading

A Beautiful Mess: A Perfectionist’s Journey Through Self-Care, which I only got half-way through earlier this summer.
