Carpool Book Club

Hey, y’all!  Happy Wednesday!  Today, it’s time for my very favorite post….It’s 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!

Standing Strong


A while back, I read Teresa’s first book, Turning the Tables, about her time in prison, and I reallllly enjoyed it!   This new book was more about her time after she was released and when Joe went to serve his sentence.  I didn’t find it quite as compelling but I still loved hearing about her experiences and such!   Also, she is super honest with her feelings about Joe and her frustrations with his actions, and I know it sounds crazy, but I like Teresa much more after reading her books…I can relate with her a little more after hearing her heart on everything.  I totally recommend this one!

Girl, Wash Your Face


A girlfriend of mine recommended this book over on Instagram, so I added this one to my list to read this month as well.  And, let me share….If I could, I would buy a copy for every woman in America to read, because, oh my stars, Rachel is SPOT ON pretty much throughout this entire book.  I thought I was picking up a Christian life book, but this one is more like a book about Girl talk.  It’s insightful and speaks on so many women’s topics from friendships, to marriage, to your goals, adoption, childhood trauma….I AM TELLING YOU THAT YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK NOW ;). Her advice is centered, logical, practical, and so so good.  I think you will love it!

Anxious for Nothing


I have had this book on my nightstand for a few months now, and I finally picked it up to read. I LOVE Max Lucado’s writing, and he has done another great job of directing hurting hearts to Jesus.  I think this book would be a soothing balm if you battle anxiety on a constant basis.  For those of you that do, I want you to know that my heart is so tender for you.  Go ahead and pick up this book and be blessed by it–I think you will really find some comfort here.

The Secret Life of Violet Grant


So, my friend Shay recommended this book and the next one, and I am so glad that she did!   This book kept me on my toes the entire time, and I just didn’t want to put it down.  It’s historical fiction, but it is super engaging and a great read.  It’s a romance, primarily, and let’s just say it gets very romantic in certain parts. Catch my drift? It wasn’t distracting for me (and, I’m pretty sensitive to that sort of thing), but it’s worth noting just in case. Friends, this was an awesome read!!  One of my favorites ever!

Small Admissions


And, I finished up my reading this month with this light and fun novel!  if you need something easy and enjoyable to read, this is your book! The characters were super likable and the plot line was cute and kept me guessing just a bit!  Perfect for the upcoming Spring and Summer months!

Happy Wednesday, friends!!  I will be sharing a FUN fashion post tomorrow, so I will see you back here for that then! XOXO Narci
