Favorite Books from July 2017
I read an interesting mix of books this month – and I actually quit reading two books about a third of the way through – I just wasn’t into them and decided they weren’t worth my time. Do any of you do that too? Or do you struggle through them to the end? Here is what I read:
I just love Kris Carr – we’ve been eating about 80% Vegan since summer began and so many of my recipes come from her website and cookbooks, yet I had never read this book – one of her early ones. It was an interesting read – I didn’t learn anything I didn’t know, but for someone with limited nutrition education it would be very eye-opening. Highly recommended. My rating 4.5 out of 5.
Lots of good reminders in this book of how I desire to live my life. I found the various meditation descriptions inspiring and useful too. This is a book I’d consider purchasing and reading just a chapter a week – maybe 2018! My rating 4 out of 5.
Other non-fiction books I enjoyed in July: Simple Matters: Living with Less and Ending Up with More (this was a lovely book and enjoyable to read a few pages at a time) and Hourglass: Time, Memory, Marriage.
Interesting story and beautiful writing. A young wife who is a bit dissatisfied with her life survives a massive wildfire that destroys her town. When her husband doesn’t return she becomes quite resourceful and creates a new life for her family. I didn’t love the main character – I felt that although she was strong in many ways she didn’t always make the best choices – but I guess that’s real life. My rating 4 out of 5.
The other fiction books I read in July: The Hate U Give and It’s Not Summer Without You.
Have you read anything wonderful lately? My library hold list is a little light right now – which isn’t bad, I’m starting to pull out some of the books on my shelves that I’ve had laying around for a few years …
