Speak by Nish Weiseth: My best friend bought this book for me so that we could read it together. And I accidentally finished it in 1 sitting. It is a challenging & enjoyable read that brings the focus back to love and storytelling. And listening. Nish has a genuine narrative and I would really like to be her friend. I took several great tools away from this book on relating to others with different viewpoints or tendencies- listen to their whole story. Really a game changing book that I recommend.

The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith: This is the 2nd from the Harry Potter female author turned male alias. And it was DELICIOUS. I used it as my escape during August holiday and my goodness, it delivered. Captivating from start to finish and not an obvious ending by any stretch. I enjoyed this book immensely.

The Giver by Lois Lowry: How interesting are things when someone calls them “controversial?” This book is one of the most requested to be removed from school reading lists for how controversial it is. After I discovered it wasn’t due to sexuality or crassness, I jumped right in. It’s an emotionally stimulating book as it goes into the realm of “sameness”/innovation/rebellion/societal danger. The protagonist is a young boy and his unique journey into becoming the memory keeper for a very controlled society is thrilling. AND it is now a movie. Which is always fun.

The Secret Place by Tana French: I am about halfway thru this one. It feels a little lacking after The Silkworm but I am sticking with it. Tana French writes in such a singsong fashion that you stay mesmerized in the beautifully described moment before moving on to the next. More to come on this one…

Holy Fire by RT Kendall: This is a slow & steady read that requires turning the brain on. Sometimes I struggle to do that at the end of the day when I finally get to read. BUT it is a paradigm shifter. It has put words to many of the things God has been revealing to me about Him and His Spirit in this rich season of life since moving to London. I am about halfway thru this one and plan on sending it along to a handful of friends upon completion.

All the Light We Cannot See: This is on-deck…
