What I Am Reading Week 2

Reading Week 2

I didn’t get as much read this week as I had hoped to, but I still did pretty well. I finished two books and got about halfway through two others. So overall it was not a bad reading week. Two books a week is what I need to reach my reading goal for the year. I am happy that I finished two books this week and that I got a good start on a few others.

Books I Finished This Week

  • The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines– I loved this book! I bought it for my oldest daughter for Christmas and then we kind of all fought over who got to read it first. Since it was her book, she won that debate. Grace read it next and loved it. I finished it this week and I agree with both of them it is a great book. It was an easy read, but a good growing business memoir type book.  If you like their show at all I think you will enjoy learning more about their story. You can read my full review of it here.
  • Belgravia by Julian Fellowes– This was my fun read on my Kindle. I read it while I was waiting at doctor’s appointments, which we have had a lot of lately. I like books like this when I don’t have a lot of time to focus on a serious read. I got this book when the Kindle version was on sale really cheap a few months ago and finished it this week. This is written by the Julian Fellowes, best known for Downton Abbey. If you are a Downton Abbey fan I think you will like it. It was good, but I didn’t love it. I enjoyed the first half of the book better than the second half. The first half was spent building up the story, but the second half seemed a bit predictable to me. I kind of saw where it was going and how it would end. Overall though it was an easy read, and a good book for fans of Downton Abbey.

Books I Am Reading

  • Shoe Dog by Phil Knight– I am still reading this one and am really enjoying it. I was hoping to finish it this week, but didn’t get it done.
  • A Night to Remember by Walter Lord– I have been reading this one for months and am reading it very slowly. I  have to be in the mood for and I find myself just reading a little bit every week or so. I made a little progress on this one this week. The more I get into this one that more I enjoy it.
  • Anne of Avonlea– One of my goals for the year is to reread the Anne of Green Gables series. I read book 1 and this is book 2. I am really enjoying rereading these. I have forgotten a lot about the books and can’t wait to finish the series again.
  • Lost Women of the Bible– This was on my list of books to read in 2017. This book was given to me by a friend that really enjoyed it. I started it this week and so far I really like it.
