January books.

Remember last month when I read Out of my Mind? This month I read (the only book I actually finished this month) Wonder by R.J. Polacio. Both were recommended to me by my Aunt Donna, who is a 4th grade teacher. I loved both of them, but in very different ways. If I had to pick one, I would probably say I liked Wonder better. It's about a 5th grade boy, August (Auggie) who was born with an extreme facial deformity and this is the first time he's going to a school, instead of being home-schooled. It's a great story about the bullies he encounters and the great friends he makes. It's inspirational and leaves you wanting to cry in the end. I loved it.

I am in a women's Bible study on Tuesday nights, and we have a few chapters left to finish in Calm My Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow. It's a great book about worry/anxiety and finding contentment. I, along with many other women I presume, struggle with worry. She writes with a great mix of Scripture, verses, guidance, and stories. I would highly recommend it. Probably the best thing I've ever read about worry/anxiety/contentment, other than the Bible itself.

I just started reading The Longest Ride, the newest Nicholas Sparks book. I'm only a quarter of the way through, but I like it so far. I like reading his books for a fun, light, easy, and romantic read.
