Mystery Miscellanous Monday: What I’m Reading

I love reading. I honestly read about 5 books simultaneously. Now before you think I’m a little crazy, or scatter brained, let me start by saying that I could never read more than 1 novel at a time. I love getting into a story and becoming a part of the world that jumps off the page – I definitely do not have the brain capacity to be in 2 locations at once. I like reading a little of a lot of things so that my brain is always working, my life is always growing and I’m never bored šŸ™‚


So here’s what I’m currently reading and why – hope you get inspired to pick up a book…or 3!

        1. NIV Women’s Devotional Bible – I’ve had this bible for many years and although the pages are falling out, I love having a relate-able devotion to read right after scripture. I highly recommend a devotional bible for every day reading.
        2. Million Little Ways, A: Uncover the Art You Were Made to Live – My husband bought me this book right when it came out but it’s so packed with full thoughts to chew on that I’m seriously only half way through. Each chapter brings truth and revelations that I can only mentally process in little pieces – so it’s a book that I’ll probably be reading for a while. I highly recommend it to anyone that has a dream to do more than what they’re doing right now. It not only helps you to discover how to do it, but why to do it in the first place.
        3. Against All Grain: Delectable Paleo Recipes to Eat Well & Feel Great – Recommended by most paleo fans, I took this book out from the library to get some more paleo recipes. Although I’m not sure how many recipes I’ll actually try, I’ve really learned a lot from the early chapters in the book covering alternative ingredient uses.
        4. Wolfgang Puck Makes It Healthy: Light, Delicious Recipes and Easy Exercises for a Better Life – After seeing the famous Wolfgang Puck make an amazing salmon dish on The Chew, I knew I had to check his latest book out. Again, the wonderful library system allowed me that affordable option! I’ve really enjoyed reading a “health” book/cookbook written by a chef as opposed to the nutritionist/alternative ingredient loving foodie. His tidbits on vegetables alone made it worth reading and I’m looking forward to trying some of the recipes!
        5. Beyond Ordinary: When a Good Marriage Just Isn’t Good Enough – My mentor once advised me to always be reading a book about marriage so that your marriage will always be growing and in the front of your mind. It’s amazing advice that I’ve taken to heart and encourage you to do as well. This book had me literally laughing out loud in the beginning and now as it dives into the more serious side of marriage, I’m soaking up their every word. A book written by a couple who has gone through quite a journey, I love reading their different sides and thoughts on the same situation. They unfold how each person’s mind and actions causes ordinary marriages – it’s never just one person. I highly recommend it so far!
        6. The Savvy Gluten-Free Shopper: How to Eat Healthy Without Breaking the Bank – Jennifer Fugo from has graciously sent me a copy of her book to review. I’m about half way through and look forward to sharing this book with you in a few weeks – there might even be a giveaway šŸ˜‰

Well, that’s 6 books – not 5. I hope you check them out and get reading yourself! Check out your library, your local used book store, Target, Walmart, Amazon, your mother-in-law’s book shelf – it doesn’t matter what your budget is, find a book and let your mind explore depths you can’t get any other way! And on that note, got any books you want to recommend? Share in the comments!

    Sounds like you are being kept busy! I’m currently on a book break but soon the book cycle will start again and I know of 3 books I’ll be reading with various small groups. Plus Im usually reading a fictional book for my own delight šŸ™‚
