The Two Lives of Lydia Bird (A Book Review)

I chose this book when it came out as a "Book of the Month" option. The concept intrigued me. I was a huge fan of the author's debut novel, One Day in December, so I bought it and expected good things. The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver follows, as one might expect, … Continue reading The Two Lives of Lydia Bird (A Book Review)

The Power of Self-Compassion by Laurie Cameron (A Book Review)

I've been on a self-compassion kick lately. It started a few month ago when I happened to stumble across a workbook at a bookstore. The workbook was called, "The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook" by Kristin Neff, PhD & Christopher Germer, PhD. The workbook introduced me to a whole new way of speaking to myself and understanding … Continue reading The Power of Self-Compassion by Laurie Cameron (A Book Review)

The Getaway by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen (A Book Review)

I chose this one because I'd been doing a ton of heavy reading lately, and I needed something to just relax my brain. And what is more relaxing than a thriller, right? I know it must say something about my psyche that this is the sort of book that relaxes me. Oh well. The Getaway … Continue reading The Getaway by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen (A Book Review)

Fierce By Alice Connor

Fierce by Alice Connor was the May read for my facebook group, "Faith, Coffee, and Books". Honestly? I kind of dreaded starting this one. It took me a long time to get back into reading after all of the pandemic and lockdown stuff happened. I'm still working my way through February and March's reads. In my … Continue reading Fierce By Alice Connor

A Good Marriage by Kimberly McCrieght

This book was chosen for me by the lady who runs the Book of the Month Club I am in. Each month she chooses a thriller for us that we can either buy or opt-out of. I hadn't actually heard of this one, but the synopsis made it look interesting. So I said, "I'm in!" … Continue reading A Good Marriage by Kimberly McCrieght

October Reads

This one is much later than I planned. Life happened, and it got delayed. I'm rethinking my monthly posts on this subject. I feel like I come across so much good content in a month: books, articles, podcasts, even music that I would love to expand how I catalogue everything that has spoken to me. … Continue reading October Reads

September Reads

Another month has gone by and a new list of books has been added to my “finished reading” list on Good Reads!   Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (Finished September 14) This is a classic that I find myself returning to again and again. I don’t even care that it’s a cliché for a … Continue reading September Reads

August Reads

I am back to reading more than just novels in August. I am learning more about women and their role in culture, the Bible, and even in history. And I am learning some fascinating things. Women are amazing and powerful creatures that society needs to stop underestimating. We are capable of so much, even in … Continue reading August Reads

July Reads

Okay! So last month’s reads were more based on, “I need to chill. I need to not think about big things for a while.” So, where I’d normally have read something on mental health or spirituality, I decided to focus more on fiction. I’ve got several theology-centred books that I’m already working through for August … Continue reading July Reads
