There’s been a surprising trend to my reading the past few months. I’ve always been primarily a fiction girl, but this year I’ve found myself reading a lot more nonfiction. I’ve read two nonfiction books in the last month and I’m in the middle of another one. Here’s what I’ve read the past month:
I Guess I Haven’t Learned That Yet by Shauna Niequist
Is there an author whose books always seem to be exactly what you need, every single time? Shauna Niequist is one of mine. We’re about the same age, so maybe that’s part of the reason, but each time she writes a book, we seem to be walking a similar road at the same time. I Guess I Haven’t Learned That Yet carries on that same tradition as she writes about life in your 40’s, health scares, kids growing up, and more. I’m so glad I was able to get a copy from our library!
When to Walk Away: Finding Freedom From Toxic People by Gary L. Thomas
This was a really emotional book for me. To my knowledge, there aren’t a lot of books on this topic, and there definitely aren’t many written from a Christian perspective. The author handles a difficult subject with love and grace.
To Love a Viking by Heather Day Gilbert and Jen Cudmore
Viking historical wasn’t a genre I’d ever thought about until Heather Day Gilbert released her novel, God’s Daughter. It was so well written and so interesting that I was hooked. I’m thrilled about this new series and I absolutely loved book one. The characters were so good, and their struggles were relatable to a modern audience.
Fallout by Carrie Stuart Parks
Carrie Stuart Parks always writes such unique characters! Fallout was no exception. The story kept me guessing. I figured out part of the mystery by the end, but there were quite a few surprises.
