My Twentysomething Life

I Do, Make, Read, Watch, Eat…

May

The Ice Princess–Camilla Lackberg
An awesome, suspenseful mystery.  I loved it.  Good job goodreads recommendations!  You nailed it!
Oprah–Kitty Kelly
This was to satisfy one of my goals.  And I have to say, I was not impressed.
Angry Conversations with God–Susan Isaacs
The usual metaphor that we hear for our relationship with God is that we are his bride.  So in this book, the author is mad at God, and so she takes him to couples counseling.  It was a very interesting read.
Reconstructing Natalie–Laura Jensen Walker
I absolutely loved this book.  I highly recommend it.  It was a fun, quick read.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close–Jonathan Foer
This book was okay.  The writing style was kind of weird for me so I found myself reading more and more trying to understand what was happening.
The Great Gatsby–F. Scott Fitzgerald
Always one of my favorites to read.  If you haven’t read it yet, you should!
Wicked–Gregory Maguire
Meh.  I thought this book was just okay.
Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister–Gregory Maguire
Again, just okay in my opinion.
Drive–Daniel Pink
This was all about what motivates people, but I didn’t really feel like I learned anything.
Fight Club–Chuck Palahniuk
Awesome!  Probably enjoyed this more than the movie!
A Beautiful Mind–Sylvia Nasar
Can I say I liked the movie better?
Creature of the Word–Matt Chandler
I really enjoyed this book.  It was all about how God created the church and how we should act like it.
The Frog Prince–Elle Lothlorien
This book was a cute romantic comedy and I really enjoyed it.  It was just plain fun.
A is for Alibi–Sue Grafton
This book started out kinda slow, but really picked up toward the end and was really exciting.
The Happiness Project–Gretchen Rubin
This was a really good book and inspired me to do my own happiness project, whenever I can get around to it.
The Crown of Embers–Rae Carson
I’m really enjoying this series.  This was number two and I have to wait until August for number 3.  This is a fantasy series.
Building Stories–Chris Ware
I found this to be rather weird.
Life of Pi–Yann Martel
Love!
Soul Detox–Craig Groeschel
This was alright.  Not his best book.
Yes, Chef!–Marcus Samuelsson
I loved this book!  He has such an interesting life story.  It is really neat to read about his journey to the chef he is today.
The Lying Game–Sara Shepard
Every once and I while I just need some light reading.  This was really good for that.  It was a good, quick read.
The Christian Atheist–Craig Groeschel
I thought this book was very good.  Groeschel touched on a lot of things that I think many of us need to hear.
Batman Vol 1 The Court of Owls–Scott Snyder
I really enjoyed this comic book.  Adam recommended it to me and I’m looking forward to reading volume 2.
A Game of Thrones–George RR Martin
Love, Love, Loved this book!
