Show Us Your Books – July ’17

I’m trying to be better about my expectations when it comes to reading. I feel like I have to finish each book that I start to read. It is so dumb because I hate doing that. Some books just don’t interest me like others. I need to stop caring so much and just read what I love and want to and be happy with my pace.


Couldn’t Stop Reading

Worth the Wrestle by Sheri Dew – I finally finished this book and hands down, making it on my top 10 books list. It is so perfectly written for our day in age and it exceeded my expectations. I saved so many quotes and had so many sticky notes in it. Sheri Dew isn’t afraid to tell it like it is all the while sharing her personal experiences that are the same as we experience today. It’s so nice to see a Church leader share those same feelings with us.


Fine Reads

The Burnout Cure by Julie de Azevedo Hanks – I didn’t finish this book. It was a good read, and I had been at it for a year but towards the end I just didn’t care to finish it. The whole workbook idea just really makes me want to read the book less but she has incredible insight. It wasn’t a terrible book but I obviously didn’t read it in a day.


Did Not Finish/Still Reading

Cultivate by Lara Casey – I really like this book. Though I am starting to feel like her thoughts are repetitive but written in different ways. I will definitely finish this because I love Lara’s books and I know this one is great! eBook

Grace Not Perfection by Emily Ley – I’ve only read a few pages but it seems like it’s going to be a good book! It is a workbook and that tends to keep me from finishing the book so I hope I can stick with this one! hardbound book

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling – Harry Potter just celebrated 20 YEARS! That’s so awesome!!! :) I haven’t picked this book up in a while because I’ve been trying to read other books but I might just read this one because it’s different than all of the self-help/religious books I’ve been reading/trying to read. Harry Potter never disappoints!

  1. I think I have both Cultivate and Grace not Perfection on my list, so it was nice to hear your initial thoughts on both of them. I’ve been wanting to reread Harry Potter, and seeing it in a few book posts today makes me want to even more.

  2. Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite HP book. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since Sorcerer’s Stone. I really struggle with quitting books too. I keep thinking they will get good and so often they don’t!
