What I am Reading- 3 Books to add to your reading list

This post contains Amazon affiliate links. Thank you for using my affiliate links as it helps support this blog. 

It is time for another month of sharing what I am reading. A lot of July was spent traveling to visit family and I was able to get in a little more reading time. I am going to continue to focus on setting aside my phone in the evening hours so I can read. It is amazing how refreshing that time can be!

3 Books I am Reading

The Hate You Give

This book was really good and really hard to read at the same time. So many of my own prejudices were brought to light as I read it. I recommend that everyone reads this book.  It was a thick book so took the first half of my trip to read. Warning: There is a lot of language in the book. 

Bread & Wine

I am not sure how long this book has been on my shelf, but it has been for far too long. Shauna Niequist  is one of my favorite authors and this book is not disappointing. I am about half way through it and really enjoying it. With every page I turn, I want to break out the recipes and cook while I sip some wine. Then reality hits me and I remember, cooking is not always the most blissful part of my day. However, I am challenged to attempt making my own salad dressing after the first few chapters of this book.

The Circle

My friend gave me this book to read and I am excited to get more into it. At first, it was a slow start but I am starting to get into to now. Stay tuned for an update on my thoughts about this book next month!

    Great books. I love reading books about food so Bread and Wine is added to my list. The Hate You Give also sounds like an interesting one for my book club. I’m going to share with them. Thanks – Pinning to refer back to later.

    I just finished The Son by Philipp Meyer and A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. Both were included in my 8 Books To Read This Summer post. Both were great for varying reasons.

    Also on this list that I am currently reading is Fly Me by Daniel Riley. Haven’t been a fan. Parts of it have been great, but nothing has made me want to binge the rest of it.

    I’m always interested to see what other people are reading. I just finished You Are A Badass, it was pretty good. The Hate You Give looks interesting.

      I love hearing about new books too! Of course my problem with fiction is that I get so consumed with them!
