Ah summer. The time for soaking up the sun, building memories, and reading lots of great books. Here are a few of the books I read in July.
Women Living Well: Find Your Joy in God, Your Man, Your Kids, and Your Home by Courtney Joseph: I was first introduced to the author when I came across her youtube channel by the same title. I am so thankful that I found this book. It is so refreshing to find a young woman who loves God with such passion and yet is not afraid to stick to strong God-honoring convictions. I look forward to seeing more work from this author in the future.
Living Well, Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life by Ruth Soukup: I found myself inspired as I read this book. Mrs. Soukup writes with such honesty and authenticity about her journey with money. This book is a must-read for anyone looking to enjoy the simple things in life while saving money at the same time.
Talent to Treasure: Building A Profitable Music Teaching Business by Marcia Washburn: I thought this book was packed full of practical tips on how to build a wonderful music teaching business while also balancing the needs of your unique family. I look forward to implementing many of the author's suggestions in the future. I do think that the price of this book was a little ridiculous. It retails for 19.99 and that is just ridiculous.
The Blender Girl Smoothies: 100 Gluten-Free, Vegan, and Paleo-Friendly Recipes by Tess Masters: As much as I tried to get into this cookbook I just couldn't. This book is definitely a healthy foodie type of book. While the pictures are stunning the actual smoothies look fairly gross. I'm pretty open to healthy foods and will eat just about anything but I couldn't get motivated to make these smoothies. My biggest problem with this book was the fact that so many of the recipes called for strange ingredients that I don't routinely keep on hand. I usually only keep cookbooks that contain tons of recipes that I plan on making again so this one probably won't make the cut. Please note that I did receive a review copy of this book from Blogging For Books.
What books have you read this summer?
