Disciplines of the Beautiful Woman – Anne Ortlund

The Hobbit – J. R. R. Tolkien (reading aloud to the kids!)

Completed:

The Mating, The Keeping, The Finding – Nicky Charles (Free Adult Romance eBooks. Not bad for free! R-rated)

Shatter Me – Tahereh Mafi (OH MY GOSH amazing! I read this in ONE sitting on a rainy Saturday and LOVED it! No sex, but lots of kissing = PG-13)

Storm of Swords, Clash of Kings – George R. R. Martin (This series is like a bookish “LOST” set in an alternate, Anglo-Saxon England-type world. Totally addicting! R-rated)

The Discovery of the Child – Maria Montessori (Theory and concepts of Montessori. Dry, but very informative and helpful for parents new to Montessori methods.)

Dark-Hunters Series – Sherrilyn Kenyon (Escapist, paranormal romance. Fast vacation reads. R-rated)

Covet – J. R. Ward (Paranormal romance. Dovetails with the “Black Dagger Brotherhood” series. Very much R-rated.)

Game of Thrones – George R. R. Martin (LOVED THIS BOOK! Took forever to read, which was fine with me. It’s nice to have a book that sticks with you for a long time! R-rated)

The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers – Meg Meeker, M.D. (Part devotional, part “how-to” encouragement. Helpful for busy moms!)

The 19th Wife – David Ebershoff (Fascinating story covering a modern-day polygamist mystery along side a fictionalized history of Brigham Young’s 19th wife who escaped polygamy. PG-13)

The Secret of Childhood – Maria Montessori (Montessori history and theory. Dry, but helpful in explaining Montessori to parents new to the method.)

OutlanderDiana Gabaldon (R)

May 18: Wither – Lauren DeStefano (Hauntingly beautiful, I devoured this YA book in a day. LOVED! PG)

March/April: The Black Dagger Brotherhood – J. R. Ward (holy crap, addicting, but holy crap the sex on every other page was a bit much sometimes. R)

March: Changeless – Gail Carriger (A quirky paranormal steam-punk romance. Hilarious, fun read! PG-13)

The Millionaire Next Door – Thomas Stanley (How Millionaire’s really live. In suburbia, right next door to the middle class. And their wives coupon! A bit dry for some, but I found it really fascinating!)
