Carpool Book Club

Hey, y’all!! It’s the last Thursday of the month which means it is time for Carpool Book Club!

Each month, I share about my favorite books that I’ve read that month!   These are the books that sit on my nightstand and that I read as a busy mama of 3 kids who are always on the go!

This month, I have a few great recommendations for you!

Small Great Things

This book was the first one that I read this month, and I loved it! It’s a book about social issues, and I don’t read a ton of books like this…However, I found it to be super balanced and honest.  If you’ve watched my testimony, you know that I have a little bit of understanding about discrimination….and I found the descriptions of how the characters felt to be so true and not overly sensational or sterotypical.  Anyway, this book is good, and I totally recommend it if you are into this sort of thing. 🙂

The Matchmaker

This book was my next read this month, and I was super excited because I am a big Elin Hilderbrand fan!  Unfortunately, I didn’t love this one.  I mean, I nearly quit reading this after the first 50 pages because I found it to be super slow!   I pushed through, and it was just okay!  So, this one was a little disappointing, but my next one was awesome!

How to Have a New Teenager by Friday

So, I talked about this book last week, and I am a big fan!!  If you have teenagers or want to know more about what to expect during that stage of life….then this is the book for you!  I can’t say enough good things about this one!  It will completely change that way you look at parenting a teenager. 🙂

What’s Coming Up

I’ve already ordered my books for next month, and I am so excited to read these four books!   If you want to read along you can find them here!

  1. I’ve seen a lot of people post about Small Great Things. I need to give it a try! And your four books for next month are all good!!


  2. I read small great things — I loved it at the end !!! I at times found that I did not like any of the characters in the book but just loved the book, which is odd thing to concluded!!!

  4. I hate to hear that you didn’t like The Matchmaker — it was one of my favorite of hers. I hope you like the Hypnotists Love Story — it was NOT my favorite of Liane Moriarty’s books but since I like her as an author it wasn’t awful and I would certainly tell anyone to read it. I just got my copy of Unstuffed yesterday and dug right in! Yea! Glad so many in your group have recommended and talked about it so much. I just finished Along the Infinite Sea by Beatriz Williams – I liked it enough to want to try another of her books in the future. It was set in two time periods — 1930’s Europe and 1960’s Florida. I have “I Let You Go” on hold at the library 🙂


    • Thank you for the recommendations, Jenni! I’m glad you loved matchmaker….maybe I was just off when I was reading it and that was why I didn’t enjoy it! 🙂 I will definitely check that out. Xo


  5. I loved The Hypnotists love story. Such a great read. You should read Nantucket nights by Elin Hilderbrand it’s such a quick and easy read and definitely keeps you guessing.


  6. I’m currently listening to A New Teenager by Friday and you are so right. Yes, I absolutely agree, every parent should read/listen to this book. I wish I had started in the pre-teen years and this was simply a re-read 🙂 Hindsight, I tell ya! Our teens may not agree with some aspects; ultimately, they get exactly what they need/want. Thanks for hosting Car Pool Book Club.


    • I have 3 kids, 11,9,& 7. My oldest is starting middle school in the fall any other book suggestions as we enter pre-teens? After I write this I am buying the “new teenager….” book! Thanks!


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