I got a good bit of reading done this month, and I really enjoyed it! I was able to read while I was visiting my parents since I didn't have to worry about cooking, cleaning, or even much laundry (for some reason, it didn't seem like much to do mine and the children's clothes). It was a nice vacation!
- Here is Where: Discovering America's Great Forgotten History by Andrew Carroll. The title describes the book completely, and here is my full review.
- City of Angels by James Scott Bell and Tracie Peterson. When Kit moves to Los Angeles to become a lawyer in the early 1900's, she has plenty of obstacles to overcome. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in this series.
- Looking Like the Enemy: My Story of Imprisonment in Japanese American Internment Camps by Mary Matsuda Gruenewald. This book was a hard book to read, but reading things like this is necessary so that we don't repeat our mistakes. You can read more of my thoughts on this book here. (This book is from my reading list for the year.)
- Song of Redemption (Chronicles of the Kings #2) by Lynn Austin. As Hezekiah starts his reign over Judah, he has to figure out who will help him bring the country back to Yahweh, and who will stand in his way. Another interesting read by my new favorite author, and I can't wait to continue this series.
- Death by the Book by Julianna Deering. I don't know why I didn't enjoy the first book more, but I really enjoyed this second one. This time Drew is asked by the local police constable to help solve some murders which don't seem to be linked at all. Since this book takes place during the early 1930's in Britian, it's especially fun to get a look at the different customs and language.
