I’ve been recovering from my wisdom teeth surgery and I’m slowly starting to feel better. However, I had a rough night and woke up super early. Came straight to my computer and started working on this post (and did some online shopping haha).
I want to start doing monthly book reviews for you guys! Would y’all be interested? I try to read every night (even if it’s only 3 pages) and complete at least 1 book a month. When it comes to puzzles and books, I can sometimes get addicted! So this past month I finished 2! Here are my thoughts:
Hide – Lisa Gardner – I’ve reviewed a couple of Gardners books before! She has become one of my favorite authors! She’s the #1 New York Times bestselling author of suspense! And she’s earned it!! Believe me! Once you start one of her novels you can’t put it down. She’ll hook you! Hide is centered around D.D. Warren & Bobby Dodge tracking down a brutal killer. They stumbled across an underground chamber, on the property of an old Boston Mental Hospital. In the chamber 6 women’s bodies are found in clear garbage bags! One character, Annabelle Granger, goes to Warren & Dodge, claiming she might be able to help with the investigation. What you learn about Annabelle keeps you guessing up until the very end! If you like thrillers and suspense, Hide is for you!
Present Over Perfect – Shauna Niequist – My mom got me this book for Christmas and I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to read it. Lately I’ve struggled with being fully engaged in my daily life. I feel like so much of what I do revolves around social media that I sometimes have to remind myself to take a step back! I wanted to read this book to see what tips Niequist has for ‘living in the now’! I really appreciated her opening up and sharing her story with her readers. She discusses how she was overworked, tired, worn out, and struggling day to day, with being a wife, mom, and businesswoman. Through her trails she slowly learned that it was time she made a change. This novel is all about self love, strength, and faith. With those three things you can turn your life around and devote your time to the things that mean the most to you. “Present over perfect living is real over image, connecting over comparing, meaning over mania, depth over artifice,” she writes, explaining along the way that she’s found a new “strength” in embracing quiet surroundings and in spending time alone.
p.s.-If you like scripture references this book is for you!!!
