The first book I read was Rediscover Jesus. This was the book I read throughout Lent. It gave me a lot to think about each day and I started a Prayer Journal. Read More about my thoughts here.....
Next I finished the book Big Magic. I felt a little strange about this book because I didn't get that warm and fuzzy feeling that every one else got while reading the book. There were a couple of nuggets I took from the book:
- creative things that make you happy
- network with other creative people
- as long as I am supporting myself and not hurting someone else I should create what I want
- don't worry about what others think
Then I read three fiction books. The first one was Paris is Always A Good Idea. This was an adorable love story. The characters were like-able and Paris as the setting. So Sweet! Even the little postcard shop is a magical place for the events of the story to occur. My favorite aspect of the story was the story centered around a children's author and illustrator. I would give the story 3 stars.
Then I read the Boston Girl. This was a really good book. It is a charming story of a Grandmother retelling her life story to her grand daughter. It is a wonderful story as she starts from the very beginning of her life all the way through her marriage. I would give it five stars.
Finally I read the book The Last Time We Say Goodbye. It is a book about teenage suicide and how the family deals with all the emotions. The author keeps you reading and on the edge of your seat throughout the whole book. I would give this book five stars.
