Reading List II

untitled-8-2

  1. The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry – Goodness.  This book.  Trust me, just read it.
  2. How to Win Friends and Influence People – Ridiculous title, I know. I’m going to use the phrase, “Don’t judge a book by it’s title.” here. Quick and easy read with solid advice in just how to be a nice person.
  3. The Girl on the Train – This was an impulse iBook purchase that I could not stop reading.  Seriously addictive.
  4. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn – I believe this was suggested on a podcast I listen to and I am forever grateful for the suggestion. Francie Nolan truly stole my heart. I love a good coming of age story and even more when it’s set in the early 1900’s and in New York.
  5. Brooklyn – After watching the film, I reserved this book at the library.  I have never really been a fan of reading the book after watching the movie but it’s so good.  The inner dialogue of the main character that you have to rely on inferences from the movie create a whole new experience.
  6. Ruthless Trust – A sweet friend placed this book in my hands at just the right time.  I will always be thankful for that bold and kind gift.
  7. Cold Tangerines
  8. Bittersweet
  9. Bread & Wine
  10. Present Over Perfect 

Clearly, I went through a bit of a Shauna Niequist phase.
And I think it was just what I needed.
Her words made my crazy inner-turmoil ridden mind feel at ease.
I don’t have to have it all figured out.
Mess is ok.
