May Reading

Today was graduation. Even though I have 8 more days of work (but who's counting?), graduation always marks the beginning of summer, because my days aren't quite as strenuous.  So, here's my summer reading.... and as always, I'd love to hear your suggestions!

I just finished The Storied Life of AJ Fikry, and I loved it.  Would highly recommend it.

For P31 OBS, I'm finishing up Living So That.  We'll be starting Limitless Life May 25th, and it looks really good. 

I'm still working through The Applause of Heaven by Max Lucado and A Beautiful Offering by Angela Thomas.  Both are about The Beatitudes.  I started them together, got hung up because I didn't take time to finish the reflection questions, but I hope to finish them this month.

I just started Safe at Home by Richard Doster, and am loving it.  It's a baseball novel, but really more about the Civil Rights movement in the South.  I put it in my car to keep for my drive-thru read (because every minute counts and you never know when you'll be stuck in line!) but brought it in the house because I wanted to find out what happened. 

I'm also reading As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner. One of my goals this summer is to read several classic books, so I've got To Kill a Mockingbird, Uncle Tom's Cabin, and a couple of others lined up.  Maybe I'll tackle War and Peace!  And, there's my old standby, Gone With the Wind.  It's my favorite.

On my Kindle, I'm reading Diary of a Nursing Sister on the Western Front.  It's an actual diary from a nurse working during WW1. I'm also reading Queen of New Beginnings and Safe Harbor.  Both are fiction reads, kind of light, nothing you really have to think about. 

There's lots on my to read list.  I'm looking forward to reading all summer long.  Let me know what you're reading!

  1. I love it when you post what you are reading! It gives me new ideas :-)

    I am reading a bunch of different books right now because I have started some and then got distracted by others lol

    I started Crash the chatterbox by Steven Furtick the other day and it is so good! Along with that I am reading When the enemy strikes by charles stanley. It is very good as well. I am slowly making my way through A Woman's Walk with God by Elizabeth George. I am reading through that with a friend. It is about the fruits of the spirit. I am reading the heartache no one sees by shelia Walsh as well. I love anything that she has written!

    I have tried to start a few different novels but just can't seem to get into any. But I sure do need a fun, light read with all the serious stuff I am reading.

    I have never read gone with the wind so maybe I will do that this summer :-)
