what I'm reading June 2016

Although it isn’t officially the first day of summer, it definitely feels like it around here. The pool is open and for our family, that means a LOT of time will be spent poolside in the upcoming months with warm weather and swim team. For me, life feels like it is finally slowing down some. The last month and a half have been a whirlwind of family visiting, traveling all over the place, and honestly not a lot of down time for reading (at least not as much as I’d like!). 

Somehow though, summer seems to usher in a feeling of slowing down and taking a bit of time to enjoy a book (or ten). Yesterday I cracked open a few new books and made a little pile of books to read in the upcoming month. I’d love to hear any good books you all have to recommend as well! 

My June 2016 Reading Pile

My 2016 reading list is coming along well, and I’m pulling a few from that list to read as well as throwing in some fun fiction for good measure. My brain needs a bit of a break finishing up the school year and that’s my primary way of disconnecting and getting ‘lost’ for a bit. Here’s how my reading pile is shaping up for the month:

  • Giddy-up, Eunice! by Sophie Hudson (releases this month – yay!) – I have LOVED her past books and sense of humor. Highly recommend any of her other books and know this one will not disappoint. 
  •  Making it Home by Emily Wierenga – this one has been on my shelf for a bit, but making it a point to read this month
  • Parenting is Heart Work by Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller – I’ve read several of their other books (Motivate Your Child is fabulous) and they are ones you’ll want to keep on your shelf. I’m only one chapter in, and already loving this book. 
  • Traces of Guilt by Dee Henderson
  • From This Moment by Elizabeth Camden
  • The Beautiful Pretender by Melanie Dickerson
  • The Green Ember by S.D. Smith

That’s it for this month! What are you reading for yourself or together with the kids? Leave a comment and share. :)

  1. I love Dee Henderson books. Terri Blackstock is another excellent Christian fiction writer.

  2. I just started reading a Christmas book by Jennifer Chiaverini. I have read several of her books and so when I seen Christmas Bells on the library shelf, I decided that I would read it. I was shocked at how many Christmas books are on the new shelf.
