It’s time for the last Friday Reading Roundup of 2017!! Hard to believe. With time off for Christmas and New Years, I’m reading lots of books this week. I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays and looking forward to the new year! Here’s my current book list:
This week’s Reading Roundup!
Work Book (for lunch time reading):
Black Heels to Tractor Wheels by Ree Drummond – Better known as the Pioneer Woman, Ree is famous for her delicious country recipes. It turns out she also has a fascinating story of how she got to that point. She’s a fun writer and I love hearing how this city girl transformed into a rancher’s wife.
The Proving by Beverly Lewis – Back in high school I think I read every single one of Beverely Lewis’ novels. I adore the Amish stories and the way religion plays an important role in her characters’ lives. This is one of her newer books and it’s worth a read if you’re a fan of hers.
Rick Steve’s Ireland Travel Guide – I purchased the 2018 edition for myself for Christmas : ) Planning for our Ireland / Scotland trip will ramp up in January, so it’s handy to have anytime I need it.
Wonder by R. J. Palacio – The movie currently in theaters drew my attention to this book. It’s a children’s book about a 10 year old boy born with disfigured facial features. I’ve heard amazing reviews on this one, so I’m looking forward to starting it.
The Cafe by the Sea by Jenny Colgan – I can’t seem to stay away from Colgan. She writes such sweet, funny stories. There’s always plenty of food and a dash of drama and romance.
From Around the Web:
10 Taste Tests – A collection of the Kitchn’s best taste test articles, including frozen pizzas, ice cream cakes, and pumpkin pies.
Goodread’s Most Popular Blog Posts – A roundup of their most visited posts from 2017.
