Feed Your Beautiful Mind!

So! It’s summer and typically a great time for some leisure reading. Ok, before we dig in, I have a confession: I have a crazy habit of reading several books at once. So, on my summer list are quite a few that I’ve been snacking on all year. Others are some I read some time ago but am reheating for seconds, while still others on my list I will taste for the first time (mmmmm, food analogies . . . #hungrymuch? mmmkay) ;0). Either way, I’m so excited and have already begun digging in! Here are a few of the books in my basket:

Americanah, Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche

All God’s Children Need Traveling Shoes, Maya Angelou

BLack Feminist Thought, Patricia Hill Collins

Sula, Toni Morrison

The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho

Seven, Jen Hatmaker

Changing My Mind, Zadie Smith

The Tragedy of Othello, The Moor of Venice, William Shakespeare

Keeping Faith, Jodi Piccoult

Light in August, William Faulkner

Grace for the Good Girl, Emily Freeman

Crazy Love, Francis Chan
