Some Books Before Baby

Today I'm participating in Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life and today is what's on our current book list. I did not grow up liking to read, my older brother Ross read enough books for all our family combined, so I just never got into it. Maybe that's why he got the brains in the family...hmmm :) Anyway, as an adult I have really come to LOVE reading!!! It's something I do every night now. I used to be one of those that needed the TV to help me to fall asleep but now, I hate having the TV in our room. I would much rather sit and read. And now with all this "resting" I'm going to have to do, I should be able to knock out a few books in the next few weeks!

So here is what's on my list right now:

I am currently reading two books right now, ha! I started this 5-book series a few months ago and I'm currently on book 3. It's called the Redemption series by Karen Kingsbury. They are Christian fiction books and very easy reads! I get through these books fairly quickly and they are just kind of that feel-good type of book.

The second book I'm reading right now is for my book club. It's called Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons. It's funny because this book is about a group of women IN a book club, ha! It's a pretty entertaining book...but honestly, I am getting a little bored with it :)

The next couple books are on my "waiting list" and will probably have to wait till after the baby is here. It's funny when I was pregnant with Cole, I was reading baby books, pregnancy books, breastfeeding books galore!!! THEN, after he was born, I was reading more books, "Baby Wise", "Happiest Baby on the Block", etc. But this time, gosh, I don't think I've read one book or even want to for that matter. So on my very little down time that I'll have when baby #2 comes, these are the books I'm wanting to read:

My mom read this book and she said it was so cute and very fascinating. I guess it's a pretty quick read too, but I can't wait to hear this little boys story!

One of my favorite authors is Francine Rivers. My favorite book written by her is the Atonement Child, but I have recently gotten into another series by her. This is a 4-book series about women in the Old Testament and it tells their story. Sometimes reading the Old Testament can be a bit confusing so these books tell the story as a novel. I read book 1 about Tamar and next on my list will be book 2 about Rahab.

I love that Karen Kingsbury series and the many series that stem from that one! They r so easy to read and just happy books! Another Francine Rivers book u'd prob like is called 'Her Mother's Hope.' It's newer and good...there's one other in that series too! Enjoy! :)

What fun to be in a book club!

I don't think I read at ALL as a kid and I can whip through books now. I guess there is hope for my boy.

Your Labradoodle is very cute.
