Cheers to a new month and new books to share!
Modern Romance | Aziz Ansari gives a virtual fist bump to singles everywhere as he confirms what we all know, dating in this day and age is a complex mystery filled with new challenges previous generations never encountered. I found it fascinating and enlightening. It was filled with the results of surveys & focus groups from dating habits across the world, in addition to Aziz’s own experiences all told with his signature humor. It was educational in many ways, but I could have done without the language and bawdy humor.
Stuck on You | You already know I’m a Michelle Stimpson fan, so of course I grabbed her latest e-book. As usual she did not disappoint. It was juicy and made me think without being icky or going too far. Can’t wait to grab the next one in the series!
A Beautiful Mess | I so enjoyed the photo projects this book described. As a photography teacher, I gained loads of inspiration. Reading and bookmarking numerous projects reminded me of when I first started photography and the joy of shooting everyday life around you.
The Newsmakers | Lis Wiehl’s latest book approaches an interesting idea; what if those who share the news started creating incidents for the purpose of making headlines? While an enjoyable read, I was hoping for a bit less predictability.
Walking on Water | I’ve barely cracked the surface of this book, and I can already tell it’s a keeper. The same skill Madeleine L'engle used in her fiction works is applied here as she reflects on the relationship between art and faith. It’s one you can’t really race through, so I’m enjoying savoring a slow rich read.
Any ideas on what I should read next? Always feel free to share!
