September Book Love

September Reading List

I am coming off of an incredibly busy few weeks that have been filled with all good things. School started a little over a month ago, last week our family celebrated my oldest son’s big milestone birthday (10 years old – whoa!) and then this past weekend was spent with family in St. Augustine for my “baby” brother’s wedding. Its been wonderfully busy. But I am not going to lie…this lady is a little tired today.

There is nothing more I want to do than pretend there is nothing on my to do list but to curl up in my chair with my book. 🙂

Here’s what’s in my book stack this month:

September Reading List

Sycamore Row by John Grisham – I was excited to pick up this latest legal thriller from one of my all time favorite authors. I finished it last week and thought it was a good read, though felt a little slow to me at times (but this could have been because I was not as focused on reading this past month as I would have liked). What intrigued me about this book was that it took place in the same setting as one of his first novels, A Time To Kill. It was a classic, controversial story that Grisham is known for writing. His books are always interesting to me, I love legal / crime / suspense filled books, movies and television shows. I never miss out on reading a John Grisham book and am excited to pick up his next one that comes out in December.

September Reading List

Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner – I picked this one up today at the library after starting and changing my mind about reading The Hurricane Sisters (pictured above – it turned out to not be all that interesting to me). I’ve read most of Jennifer Weiner’s books but a few, including this one. She’s another one of my favorites so I can’t wait to get started on this one.

The Best Yes by Lysa TerKeurst – I have picked up a few of Lysa TerKeurst’s books over the years but honestly haven’t ever read one in it’s entirety until this past summer when I participated in one of her online book study’s for this book. I really enjoyed following along with the study and found her writing and message very relatable and easy to read. I plan to read The Best Yes this month as part of her new study.

The Nesting Place by Myquillyn Smith – I have seen this book floating around blog world for quite some time now. Since I moved into my house a year ago I have been slightly overwhelmed with decorating and making our new (to us) house feel more like “home”.  My style has changed both a lot and a little over the years, and I’m learning to be okay with taking my time with putting rooms and areas in my home together. Home decor and organization have never been my strength but I do enjoy it and am excited finding some inspiration while reading my first home decorating book (I’m also trying to build my list of home decorating blogs to read as well so if you have any suggestions please share them!).

    Oh I was just talking to a friend today about how much I miss reading!! I really have no excuse but I have not been reading as much as I used to in recent years. I love Jennifer Wiener!! I used to visit the Cosi in Philly where she wrote her first books and pretend I was her. 🙂

      that is too funny about Cosi! I think you should pick up one of her books next time you go to the library 🙂

    I love to see what my friends are reading! Thanks for sharing your recent reads, Aggie. I just ordered The Nesting Place through your Amazon affiliate store–I can’t wait to read it now that we have a new house under construction and I’ll need to decorate before too long! Hope you are all doing well. Miss you tons! xoxo

      Oh thank you Flavia!! I hope you enjoy the book and find inspiration too…it’s so exciting to move into a new house, so many ideas and possibilities 🙂 xo

    I read The Nesting Place this summer too. It’s much more than a decorating book! I LOVE the whole premise of “It Doesn’t Have to be Perfect to be Beautiful”. I’ve been trying to apply it to life in general & say that phrase to myself often. Well worth the read. I even bought one to give-away on my blog recently. My husband has every Grisham book but I’ve never tried reading any. Not sure why. I’m going to check out The Best Yes. Sounds good. Thanks!

      that idea of not being perfect is exactly what drew me to the book! Can’t wait to dig in. I love Grisham! You should try reading one of his older ones…thanks for stopping by!! Have a great day.
