books & music of June

I’ve been reading so many GREAT books this month it’ll be hard to narrow it down to the ones I loved! Please ignore the really annoying formatting…. I’m not sure what happened! This is not good for my OCD ways!

First off I’ll start with the fiction!

Talking to the Dead by Bonnie Grove
This is a book i actually had no interest in at first, It sounded a little grown-up and honestly, creepy. After hearing that a lot of people absolutely loved the book, i gave it a try.  It was great! I read the entire book while at the doctor’s office, and that rarely happens! (Granted, we were there for 4 hours!) A full review IS coming soon!

Scared By Tom Davis – Amazing, amazing book. if you have read his Non-fiction book “Red Letters” this is a must read! It’s not a funny, book or even entertaining for that matter, but it is one of THE most informative Fiction books. AND do you want to know one of the greatest things about this book???? You can get it as a FREE download. The ENTIRE book…. free!

Veiled Freedom by Jeanette Windle – Very interesting book, located in an area i have rarely read about in a Christian Fiction book. It’s book you need to devote a lot of time to reading. You might get easily lost if you’re reading several books at once (Trust me, i know. I’m guilty of it! )

 

 

non-fiction

The Woman of Mystery by Hayley DiMarco
This is a book i recently requested from the Tyndale book bloggers (yes they do it too!) I love Hayley’s books, but finding this one was a real treat. This particular topic has been addressed before in many, many books, but i think Hayley has some great thing to add to the discussion.

Graffiti by Erin Davis

Erin is a contributer to one of my favorite blogs, http://girlsgodgoodlife.blogspot.com/
I’ve enjoyed the things she has to say on her posts, and it was great to get more in depth in what she is most passionate about, giving young women a sense of their identity in Christ.

Mere ChristianityMere Christianity by C. S. Lewis
Of course this make this list, how can it not? I’ve read this book once before but this time it was the final book for School.
C. S. Lewis definitely streches my thinking, and he makes a lot of sense. This isn’t my favorite by him (i possibly like The Four Loves the best…. still trying to decide)

 

 

Music
This month’s music has been so diverse!

imagesI found The Beatles Anthology 1 while on vacation (for 1.99! gotta love thrift stores!)
I’ve been enjoying that, i wouldn’t classify myself as a beatles fan… at least not yet.

Coco-_oficial_cover_-_Colbie_Caillat
Also at the same thrift store we found Colbie Caillat’s cd, Coco. (But this one only cost 59 cents, no idea why though…. )I love this cd! She reminds me (on some songs at least) of Bethany Dillon (whom I love!) Some of the songs tend to be pretty similar but all in all it’s solid! And great for summer road trips!

In the name of love I’m pretty sure i’ve mentioned this collection before but i’ve been listening to it again. I’ve been reminded of how much i love it too. I LOVE U2 songs, but sometimes i don’t really like the original (kinda strange…) so this great cd comes along. It’s called In the Name of Love, and it’s perfect! My favorite song is 40 by starfield. They do an amazing job!
