Get Your Nose in a Good Book

I have found that summer is a perfect time for me to catch up on some good reading. Currently I am reading A Lineage of Grace, by Francine Rivers and so far I love it! In this book, Rivers writes about the lives of five women in the Bible: Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary. This historical fiction novel uses Biblical accounts to share the stories of women that God used in so many ways. 

 This book is a perfect way to start off your morning or end your day... oh and adding a cup of green tea with honey will only make it better!

******** Great books to take to the pool or the beach ********

When you start to pack your summer bag for the pool or the beach it is an absolute must that you have the perfect book to read while you lounge and soak up the sun! These books should be fun and easy reads that help you escape reality.


So, I have been on the search for that perfect summer book and just recently a couple of my friends recommended that I read some of the Emily Giffin novels. Emily Giffin is a popular author who has had many books on the New York Times Best Seller list, and just last year her book Something Borrowed was made into a movie (which of course I have seen!). 

Here is a review by the San Francisco Chronicle of one of her books, 

“When it comes to writing stories that resonate with real women, best-selling author Emily Giffin has hit her stride. Baby Proof examines the great lengths people go for each other, and is filled with great female characters.”
—San Francisco Chronicle

 Looks like I have found some of my ideal reads for this summer! Now I just have to plan a much needed beach day!

********I can't wait to dive into these books this summer!********


What books will you be reading this summer?


  1. The Lineage of Grace are some of my favorite books! Have you read her Mark of the Lion trilogy? So good!

  2. I have not read her Mark of the Lion trilogy yet, but they will be on my book list! Thanks for the suggestion :)

  3. Hey Melinda! So fun that you're starting this! I second the Mark of the Lion series; it's one of my favorites. Also check out Lynn Austin's Chronicles of the Kings series. Very good! Enjoy your summer!

  4. Hey Laura! So good to hear from you! Thanks for the recommendations. I will definitely check out Lynn Austin's Chronicles. If your ever out in Cali let me know, I would love to get lunch or coffee :)

    P.S. - Audrey is absolutely adorable!

  5. Melinda, I have the Mark of the Lion series if you want to borrow it! Someone just borrowed it so I still have it in a bag, ready to go! And YES, you must read Emily Giffin :)

  6. I am reading Lineage of Grace right now as well! My sister got it for me and so far, I'm really finding a blessing in it!
