Heavy on the nonfiction (especially cookbooks) this time!
When Gods Die by C.S. Harris
Book two in the Sebastian St. Cyr series. Book one, What Angels Fear, was good enough to make me want to continue the series, especially since I’m a complete sucker for historical mysteries.
Fit to Burst : Abundance, Mayhem, and the Joys of Motherhood by Rachel Jankovic
Started this one, but had to return it unfinished. I was loving what I’d read before having to return it (and I absolutely adored her first book, Loving the Little Years: Motherhood in the Trenches), so I fully expect to love the rest of it.
Anything: The Prayer That Unlocked My God and My Soul by Jennie Allen
The other one that I started and had to return it unfinished, and impatiently wait until my turn came up again on the holds list. I’ve also read enough of it to know that I want to finish it.
The Story, NIV: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His People
Curious to see how this is structured, and how it compares to a complete Bible.
Duel with the Devil: The True Story of How Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr Teamed Up to Take on America’s First Sensational Murder Mystery by Paul Collins
Hoping this is a readable account of events. Love history, but don’t want to feel like it’s assigned reading for a class.
Spy Princess: The Life of Noor Inayat Khan by Shrabani Basu
World War II. Biography. Espionage. Seems like a book I’ll adore.
The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival by John Vaillant
Found this on a list of books that will change your life, or something like that. Either way, it sounds like an incredible tale, and it’s nonfiction – of course I’m trying it.
The First Five Pages: A Writer’s Guide To Staying Out of the Rejection Pile by Noah Lukeman
I’d say something about needing to do less reading about writing and more actual writing, but this is how I do things – read read read about it first.
Cooking With Trader Joe’s Cookbook: Dinner’s Done! by Deana Gunn and Wona Miniati
Love The I Love Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook I recently borrowed, and am hoping I like this one as much!
Clean Eating for Busy Families by Michelle Dudash
I’ve been hearing so much about clean eating, and I want to see and learn more about what that means.
Slow Cooking All Year ‘Round
Like the structure of this one: recipes targeted to the seasons, because I tend not to use my slow cooker much in the spring and summer. Hoping to change that if I get some inspired by some of their summer recipes!
