What I Read | November 2018

I’ve been a busy bee this month, but that doesn’t stop me from picking up a book and taking some time to myself. Here’s some of what I read this month.

You are a Badass, Jen Sincero
(I’m still reading it but will update this when I finish)

Like She Owns the Place, Cara Alwill Leyba
4 Stars
I’ve been following Cara on Instagram for a while and I figured it was time to read her book. She just has this positive energy about her that’s so intoxicating and reading the book was just like sitting next to her over a cup of coffee (or bubbly). I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 only because while the content was great, it’s not a book I really needed in my life at the moment. I can’t wait to read her other published works.

The Cow Said Neigh, Rory Feek
3 Stars
My son is obsessed with animals and animal noises (he just turned two). I thought this book was a great addition to his library, as I received it free in exchange for my honest opinion. We have read better animal books but it was still cute and the illustrations were beautiful. I probably wouldn’t have purchased it myself, but would have made the effort to check it out from the library.

The Better Mom Devotional
5 Stars
To start, the physical content of this book is beautiful. The hardcover, the little attached bookmark, and even the pages are thick (this is great especially for mom of little ones and/or moms who write all over their devotionals). As for the written content, these 3 minute devotionals are perfect for a busy mom in your life (or even yourself). The fact that I received this for free in exchange for my opinion did not sway my 5 stars.

The Gift I Can Give For Little Ones, Kathy Lee Gifford
5 Stars
The illustrations are what pulled me in to pick this book to review and I’m glad I picked it. It’s beautiful! The artistry is great and goes perfectly with the wonderful storyline. I love books like this and I think it’s a perfect edition to my son’s collection of Christian kids books. I would totally buy this as a gift for my little niece or other little kiddos in my life.
