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 the books that I’ve read! 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! Before I started reading, I had a lot of empty space during the in between time. You know, the time when I am waiting for an appointment or sitting with the kids outside….picking up a good book is my favorite way to pass that extra time now . 🙂 I have a great list this month, so sit back and enjoy! You are going to love it all!
This month, I read two books and listened to two books! This time of the year is pure work for me, so having the option to listen while I work is so nice!
The first book I read this month was this one, and oh how I loved it! I actually read it last year, but I knew I wanted to read the next books in the series, so I read it again for a refresher! :). It was so cute! I love the big family and all the characters. It’s a cute Holiday read, and I know that you are going to love it!
Because I am nothing if not consistent, I picked up the next book in Hilderbrand’s series, and this one was a cute read as well. During the Holidays, give me all the sweet and happy stories! I am a big fan!
Since I read two memoirs last month and LOVED hearing about people’s stories, I was anxious to pick up a new one! I listened to this one on Audible, and it was narrated by the authors…the Bush twins. Honestly, I didn’t know a ton about the twins, so it was neat to hear their personalities come to life! It was really interesting to hear about their perspectives while their dad was governor and then president. Also, I teared up when Jenna told the story of how they named her daughter Poppy after her grandfather. It really is so sweet!
My next memoir was a little out of left field, but I really was so moved by it! This book is by Elizabeth Smart…the girl who was abducted and held prisoner for 9 months several years ago. She details her abduction and such in addition to how her faith sustained her during those awful times! It was a graphic and unsettling at times, but it was still a great read. I found myself anxious to get back to this one, but if you are thinking that this might be too hard on your heart…then I might stay away from it. Elizabeth doesn’t shy away from the abuse that she endured, but you will be encouraged by her hope amidst it all.

Happy Thursday, friends!! XOXO Narci
