You remember a loooong time ago when I announced Project Bookshelf? Yeah, maybe you don't. Well, I finally ordered and have caught up with my monthly bookshelf additions. Yep, it only took me 6 months to order another shipment of books. I'm thinking I should be awarded Amazon's most frequent shopper.
So I've got six new books that I've added to my shelf (not including Goodwill finds for my children's book library) and since I came up with this blog series, the least I can do now is follow through. Even if I am terribly late.
Six books, six months late. At least it's got a nice ring to it, right?
So here's what I got to fill my bookshelf for the months of April-June:
APRIL: Introverts in the Church. I've heard a lot of good things about this book and seeing as I go to church and am an introvert, I have a feeling it's going to be a great read. I also think it will really help me understand my introversion more and help me understand how the fits into my church life, too.
MAY: Grace for the Good Girl. I've been personally recommended to read this twice and while it's not a book I'd normally pick out to read, I have a feeling it'll be another life-changing read.
JUNE: Domino: The Book of Decorating. This is one of my most favorite interior design books out there. I've checked it out from my local library twice now and have always thought about adding it to my own bookshelf. It's a little older in terms of books, but it's like Pinterest on my bookshelf, so you can't go wrong with that.
And here are my July-September picks:
JULY: Bread & Wine. I'm a die-hard Shauna Niequist fan and seeing as this is the only book of hers that I haven't read yet, I knew it was one that I needed to add. To be honest, when I first heard of the book, I was unsure if I'd like it because I don't consider myself a foodie/dinner party person. But I do love community and eating and Shauna's writing, so I have a feeling I'll change my mind!
AUGUST: The Munschworks Grand Treasury. These books pretty much are my childhood. I'm a huge fan of original storylines, great illustrations, and funny characters, too. Robert Munsch is quite honestly my favorite children's book authors out there. So, well, being the teacher I am, I had to get this book.
SEPTEMBER: Real Talk for Real Teachers. I think this one is a great back-to-school read, especially after a crazy first year of teaching. I haven't had a chance to crack open this book yet, but I've read other books by Rafe Esquith so I know this is going to be a good one.
So those are my catch-up picks! Have you read any of these? Do you have any recommendations to fill up the rest of my shelf? I'm allll for good books and I'd love to hear what you think of my picks!
p.s. Still looking for more? Well, on Wednesday, October 22nd, The Circle is focusing on books! We're going to share our favorite books of the year, what we just finished reading, what we're reading next, our favorite book(s) as a kid, and what book we'd take if left on a deserted island.
