On My Bookshelf: January

I used to post what I was reading once in awhile and I'd like to start doing this again. I read a lot as a hobby and for my job, so I am almost always reading something! I have made some reading goals this year including reading more nonfiction and reading lots of children's books!

Today I've got one Teen title and a nonfiction title!



First up is Son by Lois Lowry. When I was in college studying education, The Giver was a big book at the time. I've read all three books in the series so far, so I have to read the conclusion. I am really enjoying it so far. It has been a quick read and I am looking forward to finding out what happens to all these characters. As a disclaimer, I personally think this book is more Teen than Tween (9-12) and it would be one I would definitely want to discuss along with my child while she was reading it - it certainly addresses some tough issues!




Next up is You're Already Amazing by Holley Gerth. I'm only about 2 chapters into this one, but it is already so encouraging. It emphasizes the fact that we are all created by God with unique strengths and weaknesses to fulfill a specific purpose. Instead of comparing ourselves, we need to embrace our uniqueness - we are made just the way God wanted us to be!

They sound like some good books! I haven't read much lately, but I did start a new devotional that is very good. :)
