Thanks to a slightly different rhythm I’ve been able to find more time for good reads in July.
The Exodus Road by Laura Parker with Matt Parker was a book that I had requested from the library and when it arrived, I dove right in. Matt and Laura Parker are the founders of The Exodus Road. As I continue to look at anti trafficking organizations and seek direction for how I may be involved, it is very helpful be able to get to know the people, and I feel like I did that by reading The Exodus Road.
Living with Less, An Expected Key to Happiness by Joshua Becker, this was an interesting short read and I hope that my kids pick it up off the coffee table before it is returned to the library 🙂
The Warden & the Wolf King by Andrew Peterson – The Wingfeather Saga has been a great series for our family. This is the final book in the series and instead of it being at read aloud, each has read it alone. I read the final few page with tears, even though spoilers had leaked out from the earlier readers. My kids are quite unhappy with the ending of the series, which I find interesting. Now that I’ve read it I am surprised they didn’t pick up on the meaning of some of the parts. Maybe they do but they still don’t like it. If you haven’t read the Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson, and you like a good adventure with an epic battle between good and evil and more than a little humor woven in, you can get the story here!. The other titles in the series are:
On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness; North or Be Eaten; The Monster in the Hollows; The Warden and the Wolf King.
I started Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker but didn’t get far before it was due back to the library. It might make it back on my nightstand in the near future.
Walking Prey was a book that I read with sad interest, wanting to become more aware and equipped. I was able to read the first few chapters but when the author started her personal story I ended up taking it back to the library. Stories do need to be told, but the graphic descriptions in Walking Prey were very difficult and I did not want to risk having my daughters pick up the book and turn to the pages where my bookmark lay. This was a very informative book, and I was able to glean some knowledge to apply to my own story.
So tell me about your good reads in July discoveries!
