Quiet Times With God by Joyce Meyer
I love a good devotional, and frankly, Joyce Meyer does them best!
Each day, you read the scripture provided along with her words. Those words connect us to what we just read. Then you find more food for thought and extra scripture studies at the bottom. I value these parts most. After so many years of reading the Bible daily, you want someone or something to challenge you to really ponder what you believe. Whether it's what you believe about a situation, or how you should be with people. It can even consicously get you to seek out what you believe about God, even though you think you may already know. These challenges ensure your faith is in concrete.
Such a great book to help you attain affirmations of love from God each morning. At least, it is for me.

The Wrong Family by Tarry Fisher #EarlyReview
When I saw Tarryn had a new book coming out, I jumped at a chance to read it! I loved The Wives and hoped that I would love this book too!
At the beginning, it took a minute to warm up but once it did... HOLY! It is so twisted!!
Okay, no one on earth is going to think of this plot. It's unfathomable how a person can hide in another persons space for so long. It happens though in this story and you even end up buying it.
Then this side twist plot comes along and kicks you right in the gut! BAM! Here I am, look at me!!
I got sucked right in and before I knew it, it was over.
I could cry now.
Please hurry up and write another book! 
Yeah, you guys are gonna love this one... for real.

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett
Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch - Terry Pratchett,Neil Gaiman
So the hubby wanted to watch the show adaption. I told him I wasn't watching it with him unless I read the book first. So after he read it, here we are!
This book was harder to read than I thought it would be. I thought I would fly through it, page after page, but it was a slow pace. I actually looked at my hubby and said,'it's one of those ones you gotta read all the way through to get it, right?!'. He nodded and told me to stick with it. All the while, I was baffled at having to stick with a Gaiman novel...
I want to say when I got to the end that I had some sense of clarity and understanding but I can't. While these characters were so well-crafted, witty and fun to read in dialogue, the story itself was lacking, confusing and all over the place. You can tell this book was written with two very different authors.
Oh, how I pray the show is not like the book. I have a friend who says the show is better but I'm on the fence after struggling with the book.
Definitely not my favorite Gaiman book, that is still The Ocean At The End Of The Lane. Read that one if you haven't already.

Truthtelling by Lynne Sharon Schwartz

I love a good collection of short stories! This book didn't disappoint either.
Each story felt relatable. Especially A Lapse Of Memory. As we get older, it's so easy to get caught up in our own lives and forget about our parents. Time goes faster the older we get. Days can turn into weeks before you know it. It's even faster for our parents, but it's hard for us to realize that. This story hit home for me, although I text my mom every morning. Every single day withought fail. Having lost my dad, this lesson of parental love and comfort stays with me. Now I don't forget my mom, but I suffered loss to learn. 
I also really connected with A Few More Days. Being bipolar, I've had my share of days where I became introverted and reclusive. This story hit home with me as I felt each sentence.
What more can I say?! Read this book if you like stories that feel real.
