This has been a great week, friends. My husband graduated from seminary on Saturday and was ordained on Sunday. That means that he is a real pastor-like person now and he starts at his first church in June! Hooray!!
Also, I have a giveaway! No one has entered yet, so your chances are excellent! I am giving two books away. Click here to enter.

Thank you Abbi! I am very proud. :)Delete
I hope you have a great week too.
Well done to your husband! I hope to read The Secret History in the near future. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you so much!Delete
The Secret History was unfortunately not as good as I was hoping it would be...
Congrats to your hubby! I LOVED The Secret History. Her other book was excellent as well. Here's mine.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Lauren. I have to admit that I didn't love The Secret History, but I'm glad that you did!Delete
Congrats to your husband, exciting times ahead. Bloom is on my wishlist and Maze Runner on my TBR mountain.ReplyDelete
Have a great week and happy reading :)
Thank you so much!Delete
I thought Bloom was a beautiful book. Make sure to have a tissue nearby, though!
Congrats to your husband! That's a major life accomplishment, and you all look really proud :-)ReplyDelete
I had mixed feelings about The Maze Runner, but I think a lot of it might have been because I listened to it on audiobook. Enjoy your reading this week!
Thanks Audrey! It was a really wonderful weekend.Delete
I thought The Maze Runner was ok, but I didn't love it. Did you read the sequel?
Congrats to your husband! I liked the Maze Runner but could not get into the second book. Have a great week of reading.ReplyDelete
I liked it, but I had a few issues with it. I'm not sure if I will read the sequel or not.
Congratulations to you and your husband. I just graduated too from library school. I don't have a job lined up yet but I'm optimistic.ReplyDelete
My favorite read last week was the audio of On the Beach by Nevil Shute. Please come see what else I'm reading.
Congratulations! It's such a great feeling to be done.Delete
Congrats to your husband!ReplyDelete
Have a great reading week!

Congratulations to your husband!ReplyDelete
The Secret History has been on my to-read list for a very long time! I will get to it one of these days. I just heard about Bloom last week and want to read that one as well - I love memoirs. And none of us at my house have read Maze Runner yet but it sounds like something we would like.
Enjoy your books this week -

Bloom was great. I was less thrilled with Secret History and Maze Runner, but I know a lot of people who adore them.
Have a wonderful week!
Congratulations to your husband. New life coming up for you all. What church are you with? Just curious - my bro was a greek orthodox father.ReplyDelete
by the way - the Maze Runner is supposed to be a very good read. The other books you listed look intersting just from the covers. :)
Thank you so much. We are American Baptists. How long has your brother been in the ministry?Delete
I thought the Maze Runner was interesting, but it took a while to really get started.
