Summer Reading

This Summer I have tried really hard to enjoy a few books and not watch too much TV. I think that I am doing a good job of not watching TV at night. We spend the evening eating dinner and than most nights Chad and I take Bella on a walk. It is a great time to enjoy the cool summer breeze. Before going to sleep I try to pick up a book and read. Did I mention to you that I have three books started right now. I never do this but they all interest me and I wanted to get a sense of each book. So what am I reading....
It Sucked and Then I Cried: How I had a Baby, a Breakdown, and a Much Needed Margarita by Heather Armstrong. I picked up this book during the time that we were going through IVF and I thought that it would be a FUN read, but I never got a chance to read it. Now that I am reading it it is a FUNNY and Heather is a great writer. If you have had a baby and need a funny read about being a first time mommy it is so funny and I am sure all new mommies can relate. The other fun fact is that Heather Armstrong has a blog and if you don't follow it you should it is GREAT. This book is like reading a VERY LONG BLOG.

Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God by Francis Chan. During church our pastor talked about this book and Chad read it on the plane to and from one of his business trips and he said it was AWESOME. Chad does not read books very often and he said that I need to read this book. It is about how we live our life each day and if we live for a Eternal Life. So far the book is very eye opening and challenging. I look forward to finishing it soon. I will update everyone once I finish and give you my thoughts on this book.

Twilight Saga Collection by Stephenie Meyer. I have started the first book of the Twilight Series as my friend Kendall really thinks that I will enjoy the series. I saw the movie so the first book is hard for me to read as I know what is happening already before I even get through the book. But I really want to get through the series by the end of the summer. I hope that I can get into this book a bit more so I can finish and move on to the next book. I have heard such great things about the books that I can't wait to see what all the excitement is about. Wish me luck!
I would love to hear what everyone else is reading this Summer. So leave me a comment so I can add more book ideas to my list of reading. Have a Happy Summer of Reading!

I'm reading Crazy Love right now, too! It is a great book and is very challenging!
The Heather Armstrong book may need to be my next read. That looks really funny! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Melissa,
I read the Twilight Series (I actually have a couple of chapters left in the last book), the book is a lot better than the movie, the movie did not give as much detail as the book. And it gets more exciting once you get to the end of book two and into book three...so don't get bored with it, I think you will like it. On my list of reads (whenever I find time) I have the Last Lecture, and the Michelle Obama book.
Enjoy your reading:)
