Book Club Update

I realize I haven't updated you on my Book Club Resolution (2015).  I have read, but I haven't finished much.

I could tell you about all the books I started but failed to complete.  Instead, let me tell you about the books I completed and enjoyed.

  1. King of the Golden City by Mother Mary Loyola.  This children's allegory is a fun story that helps to teach a love for Holy Communion. Sebastian and I loved this book and I will keep this to use with Kaelyn in a few years!
  2. Walking with God by Gray and Cavins.  I wish I could focus more when reading this book! There is so much to learn in this book. I plan on rereading it over and over again because I am sure I can learn more each time I read it.
  3. The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. This is actually Sebastian's book. I wanted to read it ahead of time to make sure Sebastian was mature enough to read it. I very much enjoyed the book, but it is a little bit too intense for a seven year old. I think he just need to get a little bit older, but I am excited to continue in the series!
To be honest, three books in four months is very good for me. I don't have a lot of time to read these days and I have difficulty reading and retaining information. Completing a book is a rare treat! 

The next book I look forward to reading is Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis. I started it last summer and then lost the book for a few months. I found it again recently so it might be the next book I attempt.

I miss those lazy summer days when I was a kid. I would grab a book and read non-stop for days!  Being a mother gets in the way of being able to read, and since I am so out of practice, reading can be a chore. The best way to hook me is to give me some good books!  Any suggestions for me?
