Happy Summer reading! May held lots of good books for me, and June seemed to slow down to a snail’s pace with my reading. No worries though because July is seeming like a good month so far with reading. Last week I was on vacation and read three books. I absolutely LOVE reading while on vacation with my man. Laying on the beach with a good book, the waves crashing in, and a good drink makes me one happy momma! I’ll tell you what I read later.
Now on to June books:
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
I read a book by this same author earlier in the year (January – Big Little Lies) and really liked it. I had heard that this one was just as good, and I thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Her books involve fun characters, and twists that leave you wanting to read just one more chapter before you go to bed each night.
Cecillia’s husband had written a letter to his wife confessing something for her to read after he had died, only she found it while he was still alive.
Next book …
I received this book a while ago and it’s been on my nightstand wanting to be read forever, and finally I picked it up. I must put the disclaimer out there that I believe all parenting books must all be taken with a grain of salt. What works amazing for one mom, might not work the best with others.
Now that I said that, I did like this book a lot. The beginning of the book is a lot of Sally setting up her thoughts on how moms should be home with their kids and that should be their number one focus. I don’t think that’s best case for every mom, but I enjoyed her thoughts on motherhood.
She seems to have raised lovely children, and I loved how her heart was so in tune into what they needed. I was greatly challenged to love my kids stronger, pray for them more, and see my time with them as a priority and not just something that happens every day of our lives.
Sally has a great way of helping us moms remember what is truly important in our kids lives, and in our own lives as well.
That’s it for June. Two books. I can’t even believe it, but it is what it is.
What did you read in June?
