Carpool Book Club {May 2017}

It's May book review time!  Today I'm joining Narci for Carpool Book Club.

I listened to Someday, Someday Maybe written and read by Lauren Graham on Audible and have mixed feelings about it.  I love Lauren Graham, so just hearing her read it made it enjoyable, but it took me awhile to get into the story.  I had to rewind a few times towards the beginning because I realized I wasn't listening and didn't know what she was talking about.  The story was a bit slow moving overall as well.  But it had Lauren's wit and quirky humor, so I liked that.  As the story unfolded I was definitely rooting for the main character and her journey as a young actress trying to make it.  Honestly I probably wouldn't recommend this book unless you can't get enough Lauren Graham and just want to experience all of her work.  I knew the reviews weren't super good going in, but I wanted to listen to it anyway just because she wrote it.

Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst was food for my soul.  It spoke right to me and parts of it even felt like they were written for me.  It is very scripture based and I found it really insightful.  I truly feel like I understand myself and other people more than before I read it.  I also think that this is one of those books I could read again and again because there are so many take aways.  There's no way I could absorb and apply it all in one read.  I feel like everyone has experienced some form of rejection at some point in their life (likely multiple times) and would benefit from reading this book.  I highly recommend you move Uninvited towards the top of your to-read list.  There was so much truth and it challenged me in some areas of my thinking.  It was also a great reminder that I am fully known and fully loved by God.  And so are you.


  1. I listened to Someday, Someday Maybe and was actually hooked right away! I loved her quirky sense of humor as she read it too :) I also really want to read Uninvited!

  2. I love Uninvited. I definitely am needing a re-read of all it's truths!

    1. I'm thinking I'll need to do this at some point, too! I just discovered that the audio version is free through our library! :)
