What are you reading?

I had a couple books to share with you that I have finished. These were not received for my review; I just chose them from the library.

I listened to the audio version of Live Original.  I thought it was a good book with lots of good advice for young people as well as stories from Sadie and her family.  She seems to be a good role model for the youth of today.

Here is some information about the book from online:
Seventeen-year-old Sadie Robertson—star of A&E's Duck Dynasty and daughter of Willie and Korie Robertson—shares her outlook on life as she opens up about herself and the values that make her family what it is.
Sadie Robertson represents everything that a well-adjusted teenager should be, even while growing up in the spotlight on Duck Dynasty. She exhibits poise, respect for her family and friends, and a faith that influences her choices. Everyone wants to know how a family as eclectic as the Robertsons are raising such confident, fun, family-loving kids. With this book, Sadie sheds light on the values instilled by her family that make her the person she is.
Sadie lives by a simple list of principles that lead her to personal and spiritual growth and allow the relationships she has with her friends and family to flourish. These values include think happy, be happy; dream big; shake the hate; do something; and many more.

Living as a culturally relevant teen who loves God and her family, Sadie has become a role model for other teens and for parents who are eager to instill the same characteristics in their children.
Another book I have listened to is called The Struggle by Wanda E. Brunstetter.  This is the third book in the Kentucky Brothers series.  I had listened to the others in this series and was glad to find this one to listen to on Hoopla.  I have found this to be an enjoyable series with each book focusing on a different brother and his difficulties.  This book is the story of Timothy Fisher and his wife Hannah who have recently moved to Kentucky from Lancaster County.  Hannah does not want to be there.  Will the couple be pulled apart even more after a terrible tragedy or will they be able to come together?

The stories of the other brothers continue in this book too which I enjoyed. Check this out if you enjoy Amish fiction.

Have a day of blessings!
