Welcome to my book upgrade post where I share what books I completed just recently + my sincere ideas and star rankings of them.
It’s been a bit because I’ve published a book upgrade — primarily since I’ve had a hard time to end up books just recently! I have a great deal of books I’ve begun, however I opted for nearly 5 weeks without completing a single book!!
I believe that in between several journeys + great deals of additional activities and duties in our life + great deals of psychological energy used up on hoping about and processing the unanticipated news about perhaps embracing Baby D.
But this previous week, I seem like I lastly got make into my reading rhythm once again and completed a couple of books! Let’s hope this is the start of a lot more reading — and completing! — books!
Here are my sincere evaluations of the 3 books I completed just recently:
I’ve been gradually listening to Charles Martin’s books. This one advised me of a modern-day story of the Biblical story of Joseph, although the author never ever stated that was his intent.
If you delight in sports stories, stories that type of gritty and genuine, and have a lovely redemption story interwoven throughout, I believe you’ll enjoy this book. It’s likewise a clear image of just how much jealousy can destroy our lives — and others. And how forgiveness is the essential to genuine delight and flexibility.
Verdict: 4 stars
I don’t check out a great deal of devotionals, however this one captured my eye — particularly since of the foster care and adoption journey we’re on and since the author, Rebekah Lyons, has 2 kids with Down syndrome — one they embraced.
While a lot of the stories and points in this devotional were ones I’ve heard Rebekah speak about in her other books, it was a truly great refresher and a motivation to me in this season of life. And if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve heard me share several quotes from this book as I’ve reviewed it the previous 2 months.
(Stay tuned for a truly raw and sincere and inspiring podcast interview I made with Rebekah on this subject!)
Verdict: 3 stars
I don’t understand what I think about this book. I have actually delighted in checking out other Roald Dahl books with the kids… however this one was simply unusual. And the entire facility might be really frightening to some delicate kids.
But I read it aloud to Kierstyn and we completed it, so that informs you it wasn’t terrible. It simply left me baffled and shaking my head that something about the entire book simply appeared a little on the weird side. Anyone else? (A lot of individuals on Amazon quite disagree with me in their radiant evaluations!)
Verdict: 2 stars
