On the Bookshelf – September, 2019

September was a month full of good books. I’m almost afraid to keep reading because I might strike out after a good run. Ha. Here are my top three reads for the month:

One Beautiful Dream by Jennifer Fulwiler. This was a light-hearted yet deep look at the idea of having it all. Can you still chase your dream and love and prioritize your family? Jennifer says yes, and her story is a funny, delightful exploration of how.

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. This scientific sci-fi thriller is far from what I usually read. But the story was so captivating, so character-driven and compelling that I ate it up. For anyone who wonders about the road not taken.

We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter. Maybe the best book of the month. This is a WWII story about a Polish family who was separated from each other at the beginning of the war. Flung into every situation you can imagine, they all fight for survival and to find each other again. The best thing–the most amazing thing–about this book is that it’s true. It’s the story of the author’s ancestors. And the writing is as good as the story. That’s saying something.

I hope you found a good book or two to try out! What did you read this month? Let me know in the comments–I’m always looking for my next good read.
