What I'm Reading

I totally missed this post last week – completely forgot to write and did not even notice that nothing posted on Thursday until Friday morning! I will admit that even though I finished a couple of books during that week, nothing was worthy to be written about – yep a couple of duds so I’m glad they were free! This week though, I found a great series. So great, that after I read the first one, I actually used some gift card money and picked up books 2 and 3.

Stuck in the Middle by Virginia Smith is currently still FREE!! (at least at the time I wrote this post!!) and I highly recommend it. This book fits into the Christian Fiction category and takes on you on the journey of the middle child, Joan, as she discovers what a true walk with Christ really is all about. No, it is not overly “churchy” at all but rather uses new people in her life (including a single good-looking doctor who moves in next door) to help her see what her true potential is with God. It is one of those books that when I got to the last page, I was disappointed that the story was done and immediately (for real!) went to Amazon and look for other books in the series. Which brings me to the book I’m reading right now, book 2 in the series.

Age Before Beauty is the story of Joan’s older sister Allie has she faces challenges of new motherhood, a mother-in-law she does not like moving in with them, and a husband who enjoys spending more time with his female co-worker then her. It is another great read and I’m already glad I picked it up (even if it wasn’t free!!)
