Savoring Summer with a Good Read

More reading and less writing. That's definitely been my motto for July!

I think next summer I will "officially" take the month of July off from blogging.;)

Since I've been quite the little bookworm this month, I thought I would pass along a couple of books I thoroughly enjoyed reading in my surf chair on the beach.

Christian Fiction: The Mailbox by Marybeth Whalen

Wow! A wonderful story about second chances that takes place at Sunset Beach, NC! If you were a teenager in the 80s you will especially love this book! I'm pretty sure I have been humming The Boys of Summer by Don Henley ever since I turned the last page!

Can't wait to read Marybeth's next novel - She Makes It Look Easy.

Christian Non-Fiction: Weird by Craig Groeschel

Weird, Because normal isn't working, is a candid, yet humorous look at our Christian faith. (I can't tell you how many times I laughed out loud while reading this book on the beach! The man tells some funny stories!)

In a nutshell, as Christians, we should be living as aliens in this world. We should be well... weird.

The book is divided into 5 different sections dealing with Time, Money, Relationships, Sex, and Values. An easy read with thought provoking and life-changing points.

What books have you read this summer?

Recovering from vacation and searching for motivation, ;)
