Welcome to It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!
I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme I love to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. I offer a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment telling me how many you visited. **You do not have to have a blog to participate! You receive one entry for every 10 comments, just come back here and tell me how many in the comment area.
Well.. it was another week around here. If you read my morning post today you know just how crazy it was. With hardly a free hour all week between work and evening commitments, books fell again to the wayside and believe me…. that does not make me happy. I am person who needs down time to re energize, and books in my life. When things are out of whack…
I am out of whack.
LOL…. couldn’t resist. Anyway – here is what did happen here last week:
The books on my radar did not for the most part get read last week so I am sticking with them and only adding…
Every day Christine wakes up not knowing where she is. Her memories disappear every time she falls asleep. Her husband, Ben, is a stranger to her, and he’s obligated to explain their life together on a daily basis–all the result of a mysterious accident that made Christine an amnesiac. With the encouragement of her doctor, Christine starts a journal to help jog her memory every day. One morning, she opens it and sees that she’s written three unexpected and terrifying words: “Don’t trust Ben.” Suddenly everything her husband has told her falls under suspicion. What kind of accident caused her condition? Who can she trust? Why is Ben lying to her? And, for the reader: Can Christine’s story be trusted? At the heart of S. J. Watson’s Before I Go To Sleep is the petrifying question: How can anyone function when they can’t even trust themselves?
Doesn’t that sound good? Cant wait to start it?
Best friends Sydney, Kelly, Alexia and Raven have seen each other through everything…until three of the girls are dumped by their respective boyfriends…on the same night! Reeling from this, the girls decide to create a list of rules to help them avoid future heartache. But soon they find out that while breaking up is hard to do, sometimes staying broken up is even harder!
I mentioned I have been desperate to find audio…. this is from the library – it is a cute listen, I am about half way through.
Think about life and God. These goofy ideas and beliefs are assumed by millions to be rock-solid truth . . . until life proves they’re not. The sad result is often a spiritual disaster–confusion, feelings of betrayal, a distrust of Scripture, loss of faith, anger toward both the church and God.
But it doesn’t have to be so. In this delightfully personal and practical book, respected Bible teacher Larry Osborne confronts ten widely held beliefs that are both dumb and dangerous. Beliefs like these:
• Faith can fix anything
• God brings good luck
• Forgiving means forgetting
• Everything happens for a reason
• A godly home guarantees good kids
We are reading this for my weekly small group study and I am interested in cracking into this one and discussing with the group.
I think that is all I am going to add right now. I have several audio books requested from my library but no telling which will come in first or when… hopefully soon. I have sever audio on my IPOD but none coming up for my kitchen CD player or the car…
I am curious what you are reading and listening to! Please add you link below where it says click here!
