It's Monday and I need some introvert time!

This week, I am majorly craving some quiet time. I'm learning to pay attention to my introverted tendencies, especially since reading Quiet recently. There has been a lot going on lately from church to playdates to the normal racket and needs of two small children. I'm taking some time to catch up on some shows with the hubby and enjoy some quiet reading.

On the blog this week, I did my normal Monday check-in and then reviewed The Shore and When The Moon Is Low.

What have I been reading lately? Well, The Truth According To Us took me a bit longer than expected. I liked it but it felt long while I was reading it, if that makes sense. I sped through Jen Hatmaker's newest book For the Love, which comes out this week. Now I'm reading Vampires in the Lemon Grove, one story at a time. Up next will probably be The Small Backs of Children or The Marriage of Opposites. Have you read either one? Which do you suggest?


What are you reading this week?

  1. I've read a couple books lately that felt slow but I ended up liking. I don't really know how that works, but it does. I still haven't read Quiet, but I am learning when I need to recharge and how to let people know that. It's freeing.

    1. I definitely think books can be slow and still wonderful. In this case, it might have just been a book that needed to be a little bit shorter!

  2. I had "The Truth According to Us" checked out from the library but had to take it back before I had a chance to read it. I can see how it might seem to drag a bit... it's longer than I expected. It sounds like you enjoyed it though -- was it worth a read?

    I'm definitely on the introverted side and have been meaning to read "Quiet" forever. Hopefully I can get to it soon!

    1. I liked it, but I wish some things were more developed and that it was shorter overall. I think if you love historical fiction, you will enjoy this one!
