june reading

living-room-shelvesJune was a month of poor sleep and neck and shoulder pain, but that meant I had a good reading month. (How’s that for half full?!)  I finished six books last month, and there were some really good ones in that mix.

June:

  1. American WifeCurtis Sittenfield 
  2. My Name Is Lucy Barton – Elizabeth Strout
  3. Boy’s Life – Robert R. McCammon
  4. Just Do Something: A Liberating Approach to Finding God’s Will – Kevin DeYoung
  5. Island of the World – Michael D. O’Brien (my second time through this one and it’s still my favorite novel)
  6. The Magnolia Story – Chip & Joanna Gaines

As I mention often here, Island of the World is my favorite novel, and my second time through reconfirmed that. I nearly started it over again as soon as I turned the last page.

Boy’s Life was not what I expected and not a genre that I typically read, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s a good summer read.

Just Do Something is a small yet powerful book packed with wisdom.

Like most folks these days, I’m a fan of Fixer Upper and Chip & Joanna, so I’m not surprised that I enjoyed their book. It would be the perfect book for a plane trip, but I read it at bedtime and lunch.

American Wife was just meh to me. And although I’ve heard many good things about My Name Is Lucy Barton, I really can’t see what all the fuss is about.

This month I plan to read some books related to Proverbs as I study that book, and I want to read some fiction from my shelves.

What are you reading these days?
