What I've Been Reading...

Your Life Still Counts by Tracie Miles is a devotional style book that I read this last month.  I was given a copy to review by the publisher, my opinions are my own.  If you ever wondered if you can recover from mistakes you've made, or that wondered whether or not you are worthy of love because of those same decisions.  Please, read this book.  You are worthy of love, you are important, you are still a person.  The book is written for those who are hurting, and shares the stories of the hurt and broken.  For some this book will be amazing, healing, and wonderful, but I will forewarn, for some the stories of the broken will be triggers to bring back memories in their own lives, and can be graphic for all involved.  The message is amazing, but I would say, go into this book prepared for the stories.

The Skinny Gut Diet - I was given a copy to review by the publisher, my opinions are my own.  I hated this book.  It was repetitive, and boring, and I'm not sure I agree with what was said.  It wasn't all terrible, there were some good points made, but it was so hard to read much more than a few paragraphs at a time (and I love to read).  I will not be taking the advice of the authors, I will just continue to eat food (more plants) and move my limbs.  :)

Sabotaged - I am slated to be given a copy by the publisher, but it was taking so long to get my copy that I went out and got my own!  And I am so glad I did!  I loved this book!  The McKenna family is one of my favorite literary families, and I was so glad to spend this book getting to know the youngest brother Reef.  If you have read the rest of this series, you've already met Reef, and here is your chance to get to see him grow up.  Reef is an adventurer, and enjoys life to the fullest, always ready to take a chance on something new.  This book opens during the Iditarod race in Alaska, but when Kirra's cousin goes missing the McKenna's are again drawn into a life and death search and rescue mission.  Read this book!
