BOOKS!

15 Jul

One of the reasons I have had less time for crafting as of late, is that I have been on a real reading kick!  It is starting to slow down a bit, but here are some of the books I have been reading:

For fun books, I have been on a real Dee Henderson kick.  She is my favorite author, so it wasn’t hard to click through some of these!
Unspoken by Dee Henderson-I read this in anticipation of receiving Undetected to review-can’t believe I hadn’t read it previously-very good and a unique plot line!
Undetected by Dee Henderson-this one was pretty good, but not my favorite (I previously reviewed this one on my blog.)
True DevotionTrue ValorTrue Honor, and True Courage by Dee Henderson-all re-reads from my stash that I finally have unpacked.  Great military series, and it was fun to read them again!
I also read Stuck Together by Mary Connealy (I will be reviewing this one soon), Appalachian Serenade by Sarah Loudin Thomas (I previously reviewed this on the blog-very good!), and Saving Grace by Norah Wilson (liked the action-filled plot, but too much of a romance novel for me)

For “self-help” type books, I read Money Saving Mom’s Budget by Crystal Paine (excellent-I HIGHLY recommend this one!)

And, I have also really been reading a lot about homeschooling in preparation for this coming school year with The Girlio:
The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling by Debra Bell-an absolutely fantastic resource-really covers a comprehensive list of whats what in homeschooling-and a great place to start!  It was over 500 pages, but worth reading to the end!  I have her planner too, and really like it.
Plan to Be Flexible by Alicia Kazsuk-very good!
Love in a Time of Homeschooling by Laura Brodie-a quick read (I read it in an afternoon) about a mom homeschooling her daughter for one year-it was definitely good for some perspective.
Homeschooling for Excellence by David and Micki Colfax-pretty outdated and opinionated, but a good education on what can be done with very little, as well as an inside view of the education system.

I am in the middle of several more books at the moment, but whew-I can’t believe I have read so many lately-it has been nice to get so much reading in!  And by that I mean, books that don’t just include Thomas the Train or fairies!  🙂
