The Shack | WM. Paul Young

I finished the audiobook, and it left hungry for more of the same! I am currently watching the old TV series “Highway to Heaven” as it has that same peacefulness that is so prevalent in “The Shack”. I recommend this Book to anyone and everyone!!

I have tried on multiple occasions to sit down and read this book, I had a hard time getting past what I had heard about it before I even got started, which is interesting because one of the points of the book so far challenges our preconceived perception of God also. I am about 4 hours through the audio book and am completely engrossed in it, I keep going back to hear parts again to gain a better understanding. Lovely, can‘t wait to finish it!

My first attempt at Highlighting...not so good, but this is where an unwelcome German Soldier moved into the family home and Isabelle made sure he knew he was not liked, very bold move knowing she could be killed for her actions.

This true story revolves around Mary Lee Orsini who lied and manipulated her way through life even as a child. The murder was one of the biggest events to happen in Arkansas since the Little Rock nine in 57‘, and took place during the Urban Cowboy club craze. The surrounding characters are larger than life, ‘the good ole boys‘ including Tommy Robinson who was appointed Director of Public Safety by Bill Clinton. Thoroughly enjoyed this read!!

Im far enough north west in NC not to get devastation from florence, I feel so bad for those in the battle zone. Plan to start this true story while watching it rain. Another used book store find!

The Runaway | Terry Kay

This little beauty caught my eye while I was waiting on my mom in a local used book store. The back reads ‘The classic coming-of-age novel of friendship, race, and violence in the rural South‘.

I have a feeling this will be one that sticks with me forever.

Something in the Water: A Novel | Catherine Steadman

Mehso-so

I just finished this and have mixed feelings. The beginning took off and the ending was good, however I had a hard time staying focused in the middle. The story line was good, a ‘what would you do‘ situation. I am still glad I finished it and am happy overall with how things ended up.

Brew Davis gives a daily log while his wife Jennifer goes for the speed record on the Appalachian trail. I liked this read because it was something I could read each night when I only had a few minutes to spare. Brew gives a descriptive of life on the Pit Crew which was to keep us with Jennifer! No easy task! #jenniferpharrdavis

As an ongoing fan of Jennifer, I follow her posts on Instagram and missed out on meeting her last year at a book signing. ( couldn‘t leave work early enough) Thru-Hikers can also be described as machines, adventurers, and extremely driven, and this describes Jennifer in her travels! Thoroughly enjoy that she shares her journeys. #odyssa #jenniferpharrdavis

What can I say about this book, when I saw hiking the PCT was made into the Gilmore Girls story line, I knew it had a massive influence on women everywhere. Cheryl opened her life which at times was very ugly, however through her pain and personal struggles came this beauty of a book. Will always be one of my all time favorites!! #cherylstrayed #wild

I see stories in movies and read them in books like this. It is still unbelievable to me that people could actually be influenced to live this way. It just shows how people are searching for something and often fall victim to others who hold an evil strength. Must read for anyone who finds interest in religious cults. #jonkrakauer

This book is centered around Missoula Montana however represents the mindset of many towns across the country. As a mom it was difficult to read this book however it is better to be aware and educate our children. Jon did a tremendous amount of research which I find he does with all of his writings. #jonkrakauer

The Wild Truth | Carine McCandless

Pickpick

I understood more about Chris McCandless after reading this book. Carine was brutally honest about her family and it makes me wonder what their family relationship is like now after this book. I think she had to honor her brother and the questions many had as to why he did what he did. #carinemccandless

I connected with Chris so much while reading this book. He wanted so much for his life to be real and without pressure to live someone else‘s expectations. He had the desire however not the tools he needed, it‘s unfortunate how his story unfolded but magnificent all the same. #jonkrakauer

This was the book that started it all for me, went on to read several mountaineering books. Reading this book takes you to Mt. Everest and the life and death situations that actually occurred. Love Jon Krakauer. #jonkrakauer #intothinair

Most recent book I finished, and of course followed directly up with the movie. This book blew my mind, it honestly kept me in a dark place until I finished it. Dennis Lehane knows how to take you right where he wants your emotions to be! #mysticriver #dennislehane
