Bekki’s Bookshelf: What We Read in February of 2015

Bekki’s Bookshelf: What We Read in February of 2015

Last month, I let you know about the 50 Book Challenge my two oldest children and I are undertaking. We are “racing” to see who will read 50 books first. I started the challenge a few years ago to motivate my daughter to select more challenging books, and found that I got just as much out of the endeavor as she did!

I love pushing myself to make more time for reading. I hear SO many moms tell me that they just don’t have time. If you find yourself “without time” to read, challenge yourself to read one chapter each night before bed. Exchange 10 minutes of game-play on your phone for reading. Dive back into an old favorite or check out something on the best-seller list. I am having so much fun exploring the wide world of literature!

Sit back, relax, and grab some reading suggestions. I will be sharing what each member of my household read (or is loving) this month. Hopefully you’ll find an idea or two that piques your curiosity! Here we go!

Bekki’s Books: 

1. Bumped by Megan McCaffertybumped

*YA Fiction

I wouldn’t consider this to be a “cross-over” YA book in that I definitely felt too old to be reading it. In this book, a virus has taken over the world, causing everyone over 18 to be infertile. Towards that end, teenage girls are in high demand to get “bumped.” Melody scores a prestigious contract to create a bump, but her own feelings coupled with complications due to meeting her very religious (and secretive!) twin sister end up complicating things.

2. Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Grahamsomeday

*Chick Lit

I adore Lauren Graham. You know how people ask who you’d invite to your dinner party? She’d be on the list! This book is warm, funny, and the perfect quick read. In this book we meet Franny, a young girl trying to make her way as an actress in New York. It’s about finding love, finding yourself, and perhaps most difficult of all in New York City, finding an acting job. Loved this book.

3. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Steinrain

*Fiction

I was skeptical. This is a book written from the point of a view of a dog. It also contains a lot of info about racing cars – which I find terribly boring. However, this book was PHENOMENAL! I cannot recommend this book enough. In the book you’ll meet Enzo, a dog so loyal and faithful to his master Denny. Enzo is witness to the heartbreaking trials and struggles Denny goes through, and tells his tale with remarkable poignancy. This is a story about loss, love, and fighting for the things you value most.
