{Books} May 2018

Brain on Fire
by Susannah Cahalan
This was an amazing (true) book about the author's experience with mental illness.  I told my mom it was like a medical edition of 20/20 in a novel.  She got a sickness that caused her mental illness and the book follows her account of the doctors figuring out what went wrong and how to treat it.  I was spellbound and could not put the book down!

One Thousand Gifts
by Ann Voskamp
This was my second time reading through One Thousand Gifts, and I think I officially have something underlined on every page now.  This book is a religious writing, about finding God in the small things, through gratitude.  My favorite quote this time through: "This is the trust I lack: to know that if disaster strikes, He carries me even there." I just love Ann's writing. It's like poetry to me.

Force of Nature
by Jane Harper
Last year I listened to The Dry by Jane Harper and loved it. Force of Nature was no different. I found myself using any excuse to plug in my headphones and listen for ten more minutes here and there.  It was a very good book, with many twists and turns and and ending I did not see coming.  I highly recommend it!
