The Blogtember challenge for day #12 is to share a book I’ve read, one I’m reading and one I would like to read. The past two years I have really tried to make time to read again. I enjoy a good book but often put this on the back burner but have actually logged 10 books this year. For some of you who read this in a month I’m sure you are laughing but for me, there have been years I have read zero so I’m super proud. Here is what I’ve been reading and what I’m looking forward to starting.
American Bex Porter was never one for fairy tales. Her twin sister Lacey was always the romantic, the one who daydreamed of being a princess, but it’s adventure-seeking Bex who goes to Oxford and meets dreamy Nick across the hall-and Bex who finds herself accidentally in love with the heir to the British throne. Nick is wonderful, but he comes with unimaginable baggage: a complicated family, hysterical tabloids tracking his every move, and a public that expected its future king to marry a Brit. On the eve of the most talked-about wedding of the century, Bex looks back on how much she’s had to give up for true love… and exactly whose heart she may yet have to break.
In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences of rejection–from the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over to the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father. She leans in to honestly examine the roots of rejection, as well as rejection’s ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God.
I’m super excited to read all the books to be shared to day!
