I will be totally honest– August was not a great month for me in regards to reading. I was just so busy! Which was great, but reading is relaxing to me. I did manage to squeeze in some book time on my lunch breaks and in the evenings (before classes started, of course.) Let’s check out what I read!
Come with Me by Suzanne Eller
I really liked this Christian nonfiction book. I felt it was totally applicable to my life as a military wife, moving wherever the Army (and the Lord) sends us. Two thousand years ago, twelve men took off to follow Jesus. Just like He was with them, He is with me.
Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance
I had been itching to read this book the minute I heard about it, and it did not disappoint. Although I didn’t grow up in Appalachia, I grew up in western Kentucky and can therefore relate to a lot of the lifestyle that the author experienced, such as calling my grandparents “Mamaw and Papaw”, growing up poor, to feeling like an impostor in college, and striving to move upward in society. This book explained things about myself that I didn’t know made me “different” from others until I read about them.
