wilw- reading books

So, recently everyone has been asking what kind of books I read and what I am currently reading.

Only Kidding!
No one has asked me, but I thought I would share anyway.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett
I know many of you have already read this book or have seen the movie, but I definitely thought it was worth sharing. I really enjoyed reading it and it had me on the edge of my seat for awhile. There were a couple of parts I thought they could of left out, but all in all, I really enjoyed The Help.
My favorite is when Abilene, a maid living in the south, constantly tells her little charge, Mae Mobley, to say, "you is kind, you is smart and you is important".



I had to add the youtube clip, because it was one of my favorite parts from the movie. The movie was well made but as usual, never as good as the book.


The Preacher's Bride by Jody Hedlund.
This book was amazing. I loved it and it made me realize that I really enjoy historical fiction. This book was loosely based on the life of John Bunyan. It was wonderful and I highly recommend it.



Reshaping It All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness" by Candace Cameron Bure
Remember DJ Tanner from Full House?
Or maybe you think of her as Kirk Cameron's little sister?
Full House and Growing Pains are 2 shows that I grew up watching.
And now, Candace, the chubby faced teen from Full House is a beautiful, Christian mom and actress with advice to share.
I really enjoyed this book.
Bure isn't telling us exactly what we need to eat or how to exercise- she shares what has worked for her and lets you into her life.
I was so excited to read something about her and the spiritual parts of her book winded up being a real blessing.
I will read this book again.

What are you reading?

  1. I have The Help, but haven't read it yet. Right now I am reading Naturally Thin by Bethenny Frankel. I also recently read Seriously....I'm kidding by Ellen Degeneres. Great book!

  2. How do you have time to read?!? I'm in the middle of a couple of different books. Can't remember when I actually read any of them last, but The Help is now on my list! Have a great day! :-)
