It’s hard to believe this is my 50th reading roundup! There have been so many life changes since my first one was published three years ago, but I’m thrilled to still be here blogging about all my favorite hobbies. As usual, in this post I’m sharing my current reads and a few fun finds from around the web. Head on over to Jana Says and Modern Mrs Darcy for more mini reviews later this month!
Work Books (for lunchtime reading):
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman – It took a while for me to start reading this one because I assumed it would be a dense, long winded history. Instead, Gaiman rounded up a variety of stories about Odin, Thor, Loki, and others and turned them into straightforward, simple tales. This collection is fascinating and tons of fun to read!
The Problem of God by Mark Clark – My pastor is currently preaching a month long series based on this book, so Jay and I decided to read it together at home. He addresses a number of fascinating topics such as proving the existence of God, the historical accuracy of the Bible, and the complementary nature of science and religion. Anyone looking for a rational and logical explanation of Christianity will find this book well worth their time.
My Favorite Half Night Stand by Christina Lauren – I keep seeing this author’s books pop up on my favorite blogs, so I’m finally giving her a try. So far I’m loving the relationship between Millie and her guy friends. Plus, they’re all about to sign up for an online dating website which should be a riot.
I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella – Thanks to NetGalley for the advanced copy of Kinsella’s latest book! I’m a longtime Kinsella fan and was thrilled to find I Owe You One lives up to her other works. Kinsella always delivers a light-hearted, fun adventure with lots of ups and downs as the heroine tries to find her way through mishaps and misunderstandings. Everything you’d expect from a rom com is included here: the initial terrible love interest, family conflict, quirky characters, a misguided argument with the right guy, and a satisfying wrap up.
Around the Web:
Hygge Tips – Allison over at My Novel Life shares her best tips for surviving a Minnesota winter using the Hygge philosophy. Lots of great ideas here!
New Products Hitting Grocery Shelves This Month – Snack lovers rejoice because there is a wide variety of delicious sounding products coming your way! Dark Chocolate Oreos?? Yes, please!
Chick Fil A for Valentine’s Day – Just when you thought Chick Fil A couldn’t get any better, they start offering a heart shape tray of nuggets or minis for Valentine’s Day. “Chicken is the new chocolate” Hilarious – even if it’s not true 🙂
