My Summer Reading Picks

I always love to see what other moms are reading, so today I wanted to share some books I’ve read recently!!

I’m a huge fan of reading (always have been) but motherhood drastically reduced the amount of time I have to read…wahhhh!! So I fit reading in when I can. It feels like such a luxury when I get a little time for myself and can spend it reading. 

The Better Mom Devotional

I recently finished The Better Mom Devotional. I’m a sucker for any mom or woman-themed devo, so this one was perfect for me! Speaking right to the heart of a mama, these devotionals got me truly reflecting on what it means to be a Christian Mom. (If you’d like some other book recommendations for Christian mamas, you can check out THIS post!) 

The Lies That Bind

I ADORE Emily Giffin, but somehow I totally missed that she was putting out a new book. Lucky for me, my husband was keeping tabs on my gal Em, so he ordered The Lies That Bind for me! I rarely read chick lit anymore (but it is honestly my favorite kind of book to read!), so this was extra exciting. I liked this one a lot and there were a few twists and turns in this book!

The 5 Love Languages

Is it weird that I JUST now got around to reading this?? My mom and stepdad bought this for Brandon  and me quite some time ago, and we read like a chapter and then…stopped. It was just too hard to find time to read together. Once I realized I could read it first and then have B read it, that was that! I feel like I already have been able to make small changes that will make a big difference in helping me love Brandon better. And he’s reading it right now!

Slay Like A Mother

This was a good book for moms who feel like they aren’t good enough or like they have stuff that holds them back. This book is about “slaying your dragons” to become the mom and woman you are meant to be. I like the set up of this book because it has writing exercises and includes lines to write on, no extra notebook needed 😉


Okay-this was my intro into Glennon Doyle, and I have mixed feelings. A lot of what she was saying made perfect sense, and I get the overall theme of the book. But my beliefs on several things (religion and God especially) just don’t align with hers, which made it hard for me to love the book the way everyone else does. I gave the book to my sister without any context or comments to see what she thought, and hopefully by the time she’s seeing this blog post, she’ll have read enough of the book to discuss it with me!

Fear is Just a Four-Letter Word

Language Warning! If you watch Million Dollar Listing LA, then you already know that Tracy uses some colorful words 😉 But I really do love me some Tracy–and I know, she’s not everyone’s cup of tea–so I had to get her book! This book is great for women leaders, women who are building a business, and women who just want to know how to be confident right where they are at, no matter what occupation they have! My biggest takeaway? Even Tracy has fear, lets herself feel it, and then pushes it aside and does it anyway. That’s the kind of woman I want to be.

Alright, what have you been reading? Leave me your recommendations below!
