• What did you recently finish reading?
See list below of all the books I finished in June

• What do you think you’ll read next?
I have twelve books in my "To-Be Read" stack(s) right now. I think this one might win the "read me next" contest:
Escape from North Korea by Melanie Kirkpatrick.

These are the books I finished in June:
1.Family Driven Faith. Non-fiction by Voddie Baucham. Philip and I both read this one. Very convicting book. Highly recommended to any Christian parents. {Goodreads}


2. Where Serpents Sleep. Fiction by C. S. Harris. Series mystery. The Sebastian St. Cyr series draws the reader in, even though there are elements to the stories that I do not care for. {Goodreads}

3. Wild Things: The Art of Nurturing Boys. Non-fiction by Stephen James and David Thomas. I'm reading pretty much anything I can get my hands on concerning raising boys. After four daughters, this is a whole new world of parenting for us. {Goodreads}

4. Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild. Non-fiction by Mary Kassian. Highly recommended! At first I thought I was reading this because of my daughters and the girls I'm in contact with at our church. It didn't take long to figure out that I needed this book too. You can also check out her blog: Girls Gone Wise. {Goodreads}

5. Coolidge. Non-fiction by Amity Shlaes. Fascinating biography of a neglected 20th century president. {Goodreads}
6. What Remains of Heaven. Fiction by C.S. Harris. Series mystery. {Goodreads}
7. Crockett Johnson & Ruth Krauss. Non-fiction by Philip Nel. Should have been fascinating, but was instead disjointed and poorly edited. It was also sad to realize that two much beloved children's authors had so little faith in anything larger than themselves, especially anything of a religious nature. {Goodreads}

8. Hiss and Hers. Fiction by M.C. Beaton. Series mystery, this time the Agatha Raisin series which is still going strong at 20+. {Goodreads}

9. Trivium Mastery. Non-fiction by Diane Lockman. Some helpful suggestions but came off as more of a negative reaction to The Well Trained Mind than anything else. {Goodreads}


10. Where Shadows Dance. Fiction by C.S. Harris. Sebastian St. Cyr again. But more importantly, Hero Jarvis, who is by far the most fascinating character in the series. {Goodreads}

11. Daughters of Britannia. Non-fiction by Katie Hickman. Fascinating look at inside life as a British diplomat's wife (or child, as the author has personal experience in this life). {Goodreads}

12. When Maidens Mourn. Fiction by C.S. Harris. Sebastian St. Cyr yet again. I've almost finished the series, at least as far as it goes for now. She's working on the next books and I'll most likely be reading those too. {Goodreads}

Totals for June:
Fiction: 5 (all series mysteries)
Non-fiction: 7
