Recent Reads: August | Anchors Aweigh


Recent Reads: August

It's been a while since I did a book update, so I see no time like the present to start that back up again! I figured I would be a reading maniac this summer with so much time on my hands, but the opposite happened. It took me a whopping three months just to read three books, but I enjoyed them all and am excited to share with yall today!

Dancing Through Life
By Candace Cameron Bure

Big thanks to my friend Bailey for letting me borrow this book! I loved Candace on DWTS and of course grew up watching Full House, so I knew I would love this book. Candace is a strong Christian and makes it known in the way she carries herself and lives her life. I loved watching both she and Sadie Robertson on DWTS because they executed every dance beautifully without compromising their morals. This book is a journey through her time on DWTS and how she let her faith guide her through the ups and downs. It was a quick read that I really enjoyed!

The Last, Best Lie
By Kennedy Quinn

I really thought this was going to be a slam dunk for me. I love suspenseful spy books with a strong female lead, and this book had all of that. Unfortunately, the writing was just a little too cheesy for me to get into. The ending had me hooked, but I had to fight through the rest. I so wanted to love it, but it just fell flat for me. 

Through Deep Waters
By Sarah Sundin

This story is just a sweet one that will give you all the warm fuzzies. He is a handsome Naval officer, and she is a shy, humble lady who hates attention and the limelight. They form a deep friendship until it eventually leads to something more. Due to outside circumstances, neither can tell the other how they feel, and the story builds from there. The characters are both so naive, so genuine, and so pure in their intentions, and it was a sweet story. Overall, I really enjoyed it.
