Here are a few books I read recently.
I recommend all of them
for some light summer reading.
The Life List (by Lori Nelson Spielman) – I loved this book and not just because I love making lists! It’s a wonderful story about Brett, a woman who is given one year to accomplish a list of her childhood goals in order to receive her mother’s inheritance. During this year, Brett faces her fears, reexamines her childhood dreams and makes crucial decisions about the direction of her life. A great “beach read” and a great reminder to revisit your own goals throughout your life…and to always trust your mother’s instincts!
Safe Haven ( by Nicholas Sparks) – Originally, I picked up this book because every June we spend a long weekend in Southport, NC where this story takes place. I thought it would be entertaining to read a story set in a familiar town but the book ended up being so much more. I enjoyed the plot, loved the characters and I didn’t want the journey to end. Now I want to see the movie!
The Traveler’s Gift (by Andy Andrews) – This inspiring book is a guide for successful living told through a fictional story. It’s appealing because the author doesn’t just give a “how to” list but weaves the lessons through an engaging story that I didn’t want to end.
The Noticer – (by Andy Andrews) – Since I found The Traveler’s Gift so inspiring, I read a second book by Andy Andrews because I enjoyed how he is able to incorporate lessons into a likable story line. One person can have an impact on so many lives and as stated in the book, “Sometimes, all a person needs is a little perspective.”
This weekend I am going for a third Andy Andrews book!
I will let you know if I enjoy this one as much as the other two!
