Books of 2015: September

I can’t believe it’s the end of September! Once again, I feel like I haven’t read very much this month.  There has been a lot going on though, so I don’t really feel that bad about it.  I did read two books (or, most of two books) this month, which is a vast improvement over last month!

24. It’s Good to Be Queen by Liz Curtis Higgs
I love reading books about the women from the Bible.  There is usually not very much written about women in the Bible, and so I really enjoy reading embellishments on what is in the Bible.  I had high expectations for this book, but I was sadly disappointed.  I don’t know why I thought this, but I was somehow under the impression that it would be more fictional, like from the Queen of Sheba’s perspective.  There were parts that were like that, but it mostly wasn’t.  Mostly, this book picked apart the short part of the Bible that mentioned the Queen of Sheba, and picked it to death.  Picked it apart to the point where it was no longer enjoyable.  I couldn’t finish this book because I was dreading reading it, and I kept looking to see how long was left.  It felt very long.  I really wanted to like this, but it wasn’t what I expected.
I received this book from Blogging For Books in exchange for a review, but the opinions here are my own.

25. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
I read this years and years ago, and had started reading it at the cabin last month but left it there.  So I borrowed a copy from a friend of mine and was able to finish it.  I LOVE this book!  It was so much fun to re-read it.  I’m definitely going to have to continue with the series 🙂

What have you been reading lately?
