Reading Roundup May 2017: Moby Dick, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Successful Women of the Bible, The Lost Husband

Hooray! I was able to read four books for this month’s Reading Roundup. Yes, two of them were books I read in less than 36 hours each…but still! That just means I really am weeding down my YA bookshelves! And, sadly, there were a few disappointments in this month’s set of books.Reading Roundup May 2017: Moby Dick, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Successful Women of the Bible, The Lost Husband

Reading Roundup April 2017: Book reviews for Everland by Wendy Spinali and The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin

So much for focusing on my bookshelves for the reading roundup. Haha. Last time we went to the library to get books for Rhys, I decided out of the blue to look at the YA novels to see if anything caught my eyes. A few things did, so I grabbed them. Plus, I had to read a book for my church’s book club.

But, what surprised me, even more, is that Justin spent almost every night reading a biglong fantasy adventure book called Theft of Swords. He had wanted to read it for a long time–friends said he would love it. Many, many, many, many months ago, he bought it. Slowly, but surely he made his way through it, the majority being this month. I can’t tell you how sexy it was to see my husband who hates reading do nothing but read in the evening! My dream of having my husband and I read in bed together came true! He finished and now has bought the second book.

Just goes to show you, “The only people who don’t like reading are those who haven’t found the right book yet.” Continue Reading

Reading Roundup | Feb 2017

Book review for At the Pulpit: LDS Women discourses.

Sadly, I was only able to read one book this month for Reading Roundup, but it was a great one! Just like last month, I was again contacted by the LDS Church Historian’s Press to review a book. *I received this book free in exchange for a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.* Even more than the book I got last month, I was so excited to read the book I got!
