I’m so excited to be back with another set of book reviews! You may notice the blog is looking a bit different, by the way! I recently re-designed my site and re-organized my blog content and ended up archiving a lot of old posts. For the last five years, this blog has been a cross […]

What I’ve Been Reading | March – July ’19

Well, it’s been a while since I wrote one of these, thanks to a very fateful book last year that led to me getting married! Anyway, since we have settled in, I’ve had a bit of time to pick up reading again and have made my way through a couple of shorter yet still great […]

What I’ve Been Reading | January & February ’19

Well friends, where exactly do I begin? I should probably start at the beginning, a very good place to start…as Julie Andrews would say. I always knew that books were an important part of my life, but I definitely underestimated the degree to which A BOOK could be a link in the ongoing story of […]

What I’ve Been Reading | April, May & June ’18

Hello Mornings Wow, I really loved this book. The subtitle is “How to Build a Grace-Filled, Life-Giving Morning Routine” and it does explain just that. I feel like sometimes we bash books if they don’t contain information that is completely new to us, but sometimes being reminded of the basic in a fresh way is […]

What I’ve Been Reading | February & March ’18

This year I’ve decided I wanted to read about 24 books (2 per month) and select them at the beginning of the year. But, I ended up reading more than 2 this month. After all–I always read more during the first few months of the year anyway, right? Well, I read 10 books. Yes. 10. […]

What I’ve Been Reading | January ’18

It’s here! The last book review post of 2017. I thought it’d be fun to do not just a couple of reviews of books I’ve read the last few months, but also a sort of yearly recap of which were my favorites. Why do I like reading books so much? Well. There’s many reasons, but […]

What I’ve Been Reading | Nov. & Dec. ’17

  There’s something about fall that makes one want to snuggle up with a cup of tea and a warm blanket, so I managed to pack in some good reading this month. I always tend to read more in the winter anyway and I just bought several new books to read in November. I actually did […]

What I’ve Been Reading | October ’17

  Between teaching, design work and classes, September has been pretty busy, but I managed to work through some really great reads. Humble Roots Humble Roots takes examples from gardening and the Bible’s references to growth to weave together a narrative about building humility in our lives. I’ve never thought of myself as someone with […]

What I’ve Been Reading | September ’17

All of the books I’ve read this summer have been great reads. I don’t think I’ve ever read so many good books at once–either it was a happy coincidence or I’m just getting better at picking books. I’ve also accepted that there are certain genres of books that I just don’t like and so I’m […]

What I’ve Been Reading | Summer ’17

My goal of picking some lighthearted and fun books to read has paid off and this month’s stack was quite enjoyable and I’m looking forward to sharing it with you! Do Over While driving to my grandparent’s house this month, my sisters and I listened to Do Over by Jon Acuff. Even though I read […]

What I’ve Been Reading | April ’17

It’s that time again. Book review time. Although I’ve been thinking that this corner needs a little livening up, so I’m going to work on making this monthly feature a more fun and inspiring. Oh, and since what I’ve been reading isn’t limited to books, I might also start including magazines and articles next month. […]

What I’ve Been Reading | February & March ’17

It’s that time again. I debated with myself about whether or not I’d continue the monthly book roundup during 2017 but I figured this is the one thing I can consistently count on having enough material for–so why should I stop? However, I did make one resolution. I want to read books that are more […]

What I’ve Been Reading | January ’17

My book stack got neglected in the last few months. Thankfully, I had some time to fit some fun reading in over the holidays thanks to birthday and Christmas book gifts. Finding extra time to read books is challenging. Or should I say–finding extra time and deciding to use that time on books is challenging. […]

What I’ve Been Reading | December ’16

Girly book list ahead! I promised myself this fall that I would spend less time on reading random business books + articles. Honestly, information gathering without a goal in mind seems less and less appealing these days. There is so much vying for attention that I just want to focus on a few things at […]

What I’ve Been Reading | Fall ’16

I’m having a hard time accepting that summer is over. While I didn’t make as much progress on my reading stack as I had hoped for, I was able to read a couple of really interesting books. For The Glory I picked this book up at the library, not realizing that the Summer Olympics were […]
