Yours truly is in a reading funk. Some of you may have noticed me telling you I’m in a reading funk When commenting on your book reviews.
I’ve been an avid reader since late grade school, and at times I prefer reading over TV ( I stream all my TV shows and love classic sitcoms, it’s also easier for me to monitor the TV content I watch)
Anyhow.. I digress. First, let me tell you how hard it was for me to read for fun after studying for my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Social Work as a married, working, full-time parent of two young girls. Oh, boy, did it take a while for me to enjoy reading for fun.
Non-fiction was my preference for the longest time. I enjoyed reading clean/Christian mail-order bride novels and have read several series.
I really enjoyed reading titles such as The Atomic City Girls, The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II, The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women, Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers Who Helped Win World War II, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, The First Phone Call from Heaven.
I haven’t read any mysteries in years; I’m not into horror or suspense. I’m really not into romance; I mean, it’s okay as long as it’s clean and light-hearted.
Help— Here’s My Delima
My reading funk has been going on for almost a year. And I love to read everyone’s book reviews. Please help me with some reading suggestions in the comments below.
Right now, I am on a mission looking for clean and or Christian funny/humorous fiction. I’m kind of hoping this will get me out of my funk.
Any clean and/or Christian fiction, historical, humorous, WWll, clean light-hearted romance, maybe mystery; I’m including it because it’s been a while since I’ve read any mysteries (no blood or goriness, please); suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I just finished reading The Sticky Bunn Challenge: By
Murray, Sherri Schoenborn. I enjoyed this Faith, and humor abounded, and I laughed out loud reading. (I’ll post a book review soon).
And I have The Big 5-OH ! By Sandra D. Bricker & The Getaway Girls: A hilarious, feel-good summer read about second chances. By: Dee MacDonald is sitting in my Amazon cart, and I will order them this week.
I know you’re busy, but I’m including my Good Reads link in case you want to see what I’ve read and want to read. Thank you all in advance for any book suggestions and for helping me to get out of my reading funk.
