Carpool Book Club

Hey, y’all!! It’s time for carpool Book Club!  Woohoo!  Each month, I share the books that are on my nightstand!


These are the books that I read as a busy mama of 3!  I read during carpool, at soccer or cheer practice, or in my extra time after the kids go to bed.   Here we go!

Turning the Tables


So, I know this may sound crazy, but I REALLY liked this book!  It’s a memoir based on the year that she was in prison, and it was reall, really good!  Even though Teresa was in a minimum security prison, her description of prison life was super honest (and also a little terrifying.)   I really identified with her perspective as a mom, and I totally recommend this one if you need a good read!

Cancel the Weddings-l300

Okay, I just happened to read a bunch of great books this month, so you are going to see a common thread today….Shay recommended this one to us a few months back, and it was so good also!   I think it’s one of my favorite chick lit books ever!  The story line read like a good old fashioned romantic comedy (movie people, let’s make this happen!), and the characters were so likable!   I love it!


I told you that I read a ton of great books this month, and this one is totally included in my list!   I had never heard of this author before, but it was a really poignant and FUNNY memoir about her struggles with infertility and a premature baby.  You will really enjoy this one, too!

First Comes Love


And, finally, I read this one!   So, I am a big fan of Emily Giffin, but this one was just okay!  I enjoyed it, but I appreciated her other books much more!

What’s up Next

That’s what I read this month, but here’s what’s coming up next if you want to read along!

I just started these two books, and I will be sharing about them next month!



Make sure to share your book recommendations in the comments!   I love hearing your suggestions!  Happy Tuesday, y’all!! XOXO N

  1. I liked Teresa’s book a lot too! It helped me see her as much more relatable. I’m reading A Man called Ove right now…I’ll keep you posted.


  2. Love this! I was wondering if Teresa’s book would be any good- thanks for the recommendation! Also I think i’ll be picking up the other two on your list; Cancel the Wedding and Anchored! Thanks for the good tips 🙂 I just read In a Dark Dark Wood and it’s a little twisted (recommended by Reese Witherspoon) but pretty good 🙂


  3. Uninvited is SO good! If you go to they are doing an online Bible study right now and they have temporary links to Lysa TerKeurst’s Uninvited videos.


  4. I read room a few years ago and loved it! The story is one of those that doesn’t really ever leave you. We watched the movie just recently, and even though it wasn’t as good (of course), I still cried!


  5. I’m currently reading Uninvited and following along with the online Bible study. So good. I just finished One Plus One by Jojo Moyes which I loved! But now I can’t pick my next fiction read. Cancel the Wedding looks fun!


  6. Have you ever read any Karen Kingsbury books? She is BY FAR my favorite author. Think Parenthood in book form. If you haven’t read any, start with Redemption and then go from there. There are several sets of series that follow this same family. I’m telling you, so so good. Her stand alone books are awesome too and they are all Christian fiction. Happy reading!


I love to hear from you! Leave a comment here! :) XO Narci
