Quick Lit September

I read so many good books this month – between our last beach trip and our trip to Atlanta, I had a lot of miles in the car to read. On our Atlanta trip, we ended up going to Alabama to see our cousins, too, so even more car time. I loved every single book I read this month – so excited to share all of them!

Cutting for Stone

Wow, this was a very deep book – it is probably not something I would have ever picked out just looking at the size of it. My neighbor gave it to me, and I’m so glad she did. So many topics covered in this book, and it’s also very medical. It’s the story of twin boys born in Ethiopia + the story follows them through their lives. Expect to be mesmerized by this book and spending a lot of time pouring through this story.


Present Over Perfect

This book was just for me. And I feel like most Mamas can relate. I highly recommend it. I highlighted so much in this book, and my type A self who is now becoming a lot less type A loved this book. A must read and a book I feel like I will need to read again and again.


Doing Good Is Simple

Another book I was thrilled with this month. The author lives in Raleigh, and what an awesome organization he started. I feel like this is one of those life changing books you should read. I couldn’t put it down – I think I read this in one day. Life changing.


To Kill a Mockingbird

I do not know how it took me this long to read this book. I somehow got through school without reading it? Who knows! It was a such a great read following Scout, Jem, Atticus and Boo Radley. The trial was mesmerizing and loved learning all about the character of Atticus Finch. Glad I finally read this book!


 A Fall of Marigolds

I can’t remember where I saw this book recommended but I happened to pick it up right before September 11th. I didn’t know that this story was about 09/11 and also the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire in 1911. This book is a story of two women, both with the same scarf, one who went through the fire, and one 09/11. It was a super quick read and fascinating story.

Linking up with Modern Ms. Darcy . Check out her site – so many great book ideas!
