07. Sippy Cups are Not For Chardonnay by Stephanie Wilder-Taylor (not pictured)
This book isn’t pictured because I didn’t finish it.  I didn’t like it, so I didn’t keep reading.  I was going to let the girl on girl hate slide, because apparently mommy wars are a real thing (not what I’ve seen but whatever)… but then she got super racist and I just could not continue to read the book.  Sorry not sorry. I wasn’t interested in anything else this writer had to say because of the racist stereotypes used in this book.  Some parts, before the racism, were pretty funny though.

08. Carrie by Stephen King
I saw the new movie version of this when it came out, but I was interested in reading the book, too.  I found it in the bargain book section of McNally Robinson, which is where I find lots of great books that I end up loving.  This book was great and I am really glad that I read it.  It totally holds up, and the modernization used in the newer movie version made sense with the original.  It’s a sad story though. Bullying is the worst and all I could think about was how it was too bad that Carrie’s universe was different than that of Harry Potter … or Professor Xavier … or Matilda.

09. Jesus Feminist by Sarah Bessey
I heard about this almost a year ago, and I’m really glad that I got to borrow it from the library to read.  OF COURSE Jesus was a feminist. I don’t see how he wouldn’t have been.  It was nice to be able to read a book about Christianity and Feminism and how they definitely work together.  I think that if you’re a Christian, how can you not be a feminist?  Very much enjoyed this book.

10. A Lullaby for Little One by Dawn Casey, Illustrated by Charles Fuge
This book is too cute.  For most nights, my husband reads Autumn her bedtime story, and it’s become their thing that they do together.  I was really happy to find a book about a daddy/child relationship and this one was really sweet!  I read it so many times in the last few weeks that I probably have it memorized haha. It’s great though.

What have you been reading lately?
