Reading List

So I haven't had a post recently about what books I'm planning on reviewing, but with good reason! My husband got me hooked on reading "The Count of Monte Cristo". I've never read it before and it's fabulous! It was actually the first book we purchased for our Nook e-reader my brother got us for Christmas and let me just say that if you're going to read an 1,100+ page book and carry it around with e-reader is definitely the way to do it!

Anyway, since I'm less than 80 pages away from the end of that addictive, convoluted, intriguing tale of revenge and humanity, I've been looking forward to the next book on my list. I had to wait an extra week to request this one due to publishing issues, but I finally have another BookSneeze book to review! And I'm excited to say that it's my first e-book from them!

I have the joy of reading and reviewing "Simple Secrets to a Happy Life" by Luci Swindoll. Here is the book description from BookSneeze:

"Is it possible to stay full of life, laughter, love, and the Lord through eight decades in this crazy world? Is that even realistic? Yes! There is hope, and Luci Swindoll is living proof.
With heart and humor, this best-selling author and beloved speaker lays out the truths that can help us all become a little more creative, organized, healthy, and happy. This is not a complex prescription for how to become superwoman. These are simple secrets, the wisdom produced by years of walking with God and living well.
We don’t need more tips for “having it all,” but we could all use insight on “having what matters,” and there is no better guide than Luci Swindoll.
Luci has spent eight decades accumulating the stories, memories, verses, and practical tips that make up Simple Secrets to a Happy Life. Whether traveling the world or building life-long friendships, singing in the opera or working for Mobil Oil, every step has taught her a little more about how to love God, love her neighbor, and love herself.
The result is both personal and universal. Organized into fifty short chapters, her reflections form a simple and profound outline for making the most of the lives God has given us.
We could all use a little more joy in our lives, which means we could all use a little more Luci. Visit her through these snapshots of wisdom. You’ll find yourself drawn back again and again."

I look forward to reading and letting you know what I think in my review! After reading "The Count of Monte Cristo", I feel like this one will be a breeze to read through! :)

Soli Deo Gloria,
