Summer Reading Club

Summer is in full bloom and  I promised myself to get some good reading done. When I did my Daniel Fast and stayed off the Internet for a while, I was released from my You Tube Addiction. And I rediscovered my love for reading.  I have breezed throuh 4 books in less than a month. My friend JL and I  decided to read them together as our little version of  a book club. He chose the first two books and I choose the next two. Here is the list of books we have read so far.
JLO choose the following two books (book 1 and 2) and I choose book 3 and 4 and
1. Product DetailsGemini Bites by Patrick Ryan - Interesting.. the characters are funny and a good read Love the twins!
2. The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake: A NovelAimee Bender'sThe Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake: A Novel (Hardcover)(2010)  - I loved this book , I can empathise with the main character, a bit of a mind bender and full of emotions but really good read, Helped me see my mother in another light, moms hardly ever tell their kids how they truly feel inside,sometimes they have sadness in their heart and we don't realize how much they carry around.

3. The Shack
The Shack by William P. Young - Absolutely Love it!.. Highly recommend it ,I specially like  the way God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are described is amazing and such a strong message about forgiveness and Love.

4. Product Details90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death & Life by Don Piper and Cecil Murphey - This book is very inspiring, highly recommend for anyone who is going through a rough time and needs reassurance that God is listening.

I have read all of them but JLO is not done reading them , he is a bit of a slacker since I already read all four books and  he is stuck on my first choice =)..Book 3 the Shack and hasn't even began Book 4 .  I  think  its a bit hard for him to get into, and that's why I choose it.. I want him to open up his heart and experience the story and message. I believe it will help him cope with many things he is going thru .  I allowed him to choose Book #5 and we will embark on it as soon as I get my hands on it
. Product Details
As you can see we have very different taste even in books, but we are very open minded and we respect the selections and read them. Well at least I have, in the mean while  I am reading Joel Osteeen. I LOVE this book and I can't wait to see the results.
and I am also reading the book below , brought to my attention by my supervisor. he wants me to learn to be financially savvy while I am young.. =) he said "Don't wait till you are my age do it now!" So I take his advice and listen, Knowledge is always a good thing.
Hope you are all having a great summer and are getting some good reading done. If any of you have read an awesome book ,please feel free to share it with me =D
