2015 June Bookmarks

*Bookmarks is an online book club hosted at Creative2xmom. Here we discuss the books we've read in the past month as well as the suggested reading. Our suggested reading for June was Three Little Words by Ashley Rhodes-Courter.

 These are the books I read this month:

The Burn: Why your Scale is Stuck and What to Eat About It by Haylie Pomroy-- See my review here.

How to Love Your Neighbor Without Being Weird by Amy Lively--See my review here.

Stuart Little by E. B. White-- This was such a cute book.  If you've ever seen the movie, you'll recognize certain characters, but the book takes it even further.  It's a great one to read with kids.

Our suggested reading for June was Three Little Words by Ashley Rhodes Courter-- Wow!  I didn't know this was a young adult fiction prior to picking it up, and there are moments where the authors youth shines through.  But all in all, this is a deeply moving, insightful book about the journey through foster care.  It's dark at times, exposing the reality that so many of the kids live through.  And while it's a tough read, it's important.  If you've ever wondered what foster care is like from a child's perspective, this book clearly lays out the emotional ups and downs and misunderstands of a flawed system.  But beware, it might cause you to re-think your stand on being a foster parent.

So what are your bookmarks this month?
