February was such a strange month for reading. I worked my way through only two books. Usually the middle of winter is the time of year that I really devour books. One of those books was actually a Bible Study that I just finished. I love hearing Bible Study reviews just as much as I enjoy hearing about different books that others read so I am including them here.
Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple: I picked up this adorable book in December at a lovely little book store just a few miles from the beach. I thought it looked like the perfect beach read but I didn't get around to reading it until this month. We spent a lot of time at the beach in December but I didn't read much. I was too busy exploring with my kiddos to kick back and read. I honestly think I bought this book based on the cover. The title is just adorable! This book tells the tale of a teenager named Bee who comes to terms with her imperfect mother named Bernadette. Her mother is quite the complex character. I'm not sure why but this book just wasn't for me. I had a hard time getting into it but I finished the book because I really like closure. Anyone else like that?
Entrusted: A Study of 2 Timothy by Beth Moore: One of my first goals when I joined our new church was to get plugged into a Bible Study. I love studying the Bible with other women so I was super excited to take part in this study. I knew nothing about this study before I cracked open the front cover. (It's actually been a really long time since I worked through one of Beth Moore's group Bible Studies.) Most of the six weeks I spent working through this study I felt like I was drinking from a fire hydrant. It was really good but man it was so fast. I'm definitely someone who enjoys sinking my teeth into a book for literally months. Overall I enjoyed Entrusted and Beth Moore's writing style is just lovely.
