Anne of Green Gables, My Daughter & Me, by Lorilee Craker. An enjoyable memoir about adoption, family, and faith. I wrote a full review here (with a giveaway that ends tomorrow!)

Simply Tuesday, by Emily Freeman. I’ve enjoyed reading Emily’s blog for awhile now, and I preordered Simply Tuesday, knowing I would love it. I did! It was an encouraging, restful read. And, bonus, I got to meet Emily at her book release party!

My Year With Eleanor, by Noelle Hancock. I’d had this on my wishlist for awhile and grabbed it when it went on sale for $2. After losing her job, Noelle Hancock is inspired by an Eleanor Roosevelt quote to do one scary thing every day. In the book, she writes about the major scary things, such as trapeze school and skydiving!

Sacred Marriage, by Gary Thomas. I liked this when we read it for pre-marriage counseling, and I like it now! Read my full review here.

Three Wishes, by Liane Moriarty. Just when I was needing some new fiction, I came across Liane Moriarty! Three Wishes was an easy, quick, fun read about triplet sisters turning thirty. I’m looking forward to grabbing another book of hers.

Grace for the Good Girl, by Emily Freeman. I’d had this on my reading list for awhile but was motivated to get it read when I found out I was going to meet Emily! I think I read this too quickly to fully appreciate it. It’s definitely worth a read for all the “good girls” out there.

Breathing Room, by Leana Tankersley. I put this book on my wishlist after I heard Leana on a podcast. I flew through the book, and it didn’t really sit well with me—I think because her story took me right back to my recent struggle with depression. That said, I think it is a worthwhile read for anyone dealing with depression or wanting a little “breathing room” in life.
