Regardless... here's what I've been reading lately...
I bought this book at the airport when Lance and I were traveling to Houston over the holidays. I like Jodi Picolt's writing. She does a phenomenal job writing about hard ethical issues in a way that challenges her readers. Lone Wolf was an easy read, but not one of my all time favorites. I would still recommend it... just maybe not at the top of my list.
Great, great read. I borrowed this book from my mom like a bajillion months ago... and I've heard so many great reviews... and I saw the movie. So, I figured it was finally time to crack the book open and read it. So.so.worth.it. I love how Stockett writes each chapter from the perspective of a different character. She seems to effortlessly capture the hardships of a racially divided culture and era. If you are one of the few people left on this earth that haven't already read this book, then I highly recommend it.
Katie Davis is a gorgeous 22 year old girl that has left her familiar Tennessee lifestyle to live in Uganda. She has a blog (Kisses from Katie) where she writes about her new life in the Ugandan culture. I have occasionally read bits and pieces of her blog, but ever since Lance and I decided that we would be adopting from Uganda, I have had a new interest in pretty much anything Uganda-related. I had heard about this book and then stumbled upon it last week when I was in Atlanta. I have only read the introduction, but I can't wait to dive in. This book excites me for so many reasons.
I'm quite certain this is a children's book... but I am totally okay with including it on my book list. I can't remember where I first heard about this sweet little book, but I ordered myself a copy probably over a year ago. It's a tiny book... shouldn't take long to read at all, but I'm excited none-the-less. Has anyone out there read this before? Maybe to your kids? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
What about you? What are you reading these days? Anything recommendations?
