Words on Wednesday – Ingratitude

In the run up to November I’ve seen several great articles on gratitude. Then I read a related quote by Kimberly Wagner in Fierce Women. I really want to focus on gratitude, not just in November but all year long.

I’ll be sharing more thoughts on gratitude and giving thanks this month. If you have a favorite thanksgiving related quote, I’d love to hear it.

Recently Finished

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children isn’t new now. But the movie just came out and I decided to try the book. Take The X-Men and add a dash of Cracker Barrel-esque old photos and a pinch of Ripley’s Believe it or Not with a YA protagonist and you’ve arrived at the formula for this book.

Anyway, it was entertaining and fit the end of October Halloween mood.

Nada. I have some holds I’m anxiously awaiting but they haven’t come in yet.

Current Read Aloud

Still reading through The Princess and the Goblin. We had a great discussion last night on who or what The Grandmother is. What a lovely, fantastic story.

Current Book to Review

Nothing but there are some new releases in November that have intrigued me…

Current Kindle Deals

There are so many right now! I think some of these may be all holiday season, but as always, double check prices before ordering. All of these were less than $4 when I posted them:
The 5 Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman.
The 5 Love Languages of Teenagers also by Gary Chapman.
Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas is one of the books on marriage I recommend most often.
A Mingling of Souls by Matt Chandler is a book on marriage that my husband I read through just in the past year or so. Good insights.
Honey for A Child’s Heart by Gladys Hunt is a classic for parents hoping to raise children who love books and reading. Highly recommended!
