July Reads

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?
