The Circle: Book Report

I love a good link-up, and I love to read, so I am especially excited to share with you what I've been reading and some of my most favorite books by linking up with Kiki of In Its Time for The Circle Book Report this month.


FAVORITE BOOK(S) OF THE YEAR?
I absolutely loved Notes from a Blue Bike: The Art of Living Intentionally in a Chaotic World by Tsh Oxenreider. As someone who loves to travel and see places around the world, this book was so special for me. It spoke to me in so many ways. I also loved Wonder by R.J. Palacio and the Divergent series. And Jesus Feminist was a big one for me, too. I have a lot of favorites!


WHAT ARE YOU READING RIGHT NOW?
Right now I am reading If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I’m a sucker for young adult literature, and after my sister and I saw this movie together a couple months ago, I knew I wanted to read the book.


WHAT BOOK DID YOU JUST FINISH?
I just finished Let’s All Be Brave: Living Life with Everything You Have by Annie Downs. Oh, was it good. I love her style of writing in that it feels like I am talking with a best friend. There were a lot of “amens” said and tears shed through this one. It is definitely one I’ll return to.


WHAT ARE YOU READING NEXT?
I still want to read my friend Gretchen’s book: A God- Sized Love Story: Beautiful Redemption from Beginning to End, and I need to finish my friend Jennifer’s book before I go on a retreat she is hosting in just a few weeks. Reading books written by people you know and love is something special; you get to know another part of their heart.


FAVORITE BOOK(S) AS A KID?
Goodness gracious I could tear through some books as a child. I loved Nancy Drew books and the Babysitters Club. What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good series!


WHAT BOOK WOULD YOU TAKE ON A DESERTED ISLAND?

Oh it would have to be the Bible. As much as I love getting caught up in some good fiction, I read the Bible every day and could not live without it.

What have you been reading lately, friends? I'm always searching for good recommendations.

  1. I just got the email notification of another link entered so I knew I had to check it out. And I'm glad I did because I loved the books you shared, Jessica! I'm a huge fan of Nancy Drew (I even played the computer games!), Tsh's book, and I've been wanting to read Annie's book for awhile now, too. You've included some great reads, that's for sure! :)

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. Bookshelves organized by color = one of the best things in the world. And how could I forget about Nancy Drew when I was making my list? Definitely contributed to my love of tearing through a good mystery/detective series as an adult too.

    1. I just love my color coded bookshelves! The picture is definitely not what mine look like, but I like to think they are a close second. :)
