Book of the Week: Crazy Rich Asians

One of my neighbors chose Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan for our Meadowlake book club.  I’m not sure I would have ever picked it up otherwise.   Truth be told…I started it last week and am now halfway through book TWO of the trilogy (China Rich Girlfriend).   I’m addicted to these characters.  They are absolutely […]

Book of the Week: Saints for All Occasions

Saints for All Occasions I haven’t read this book yet but when my avid reader friend texted me last night to say: “I haven’t loved a book this much since The Poisonwood Bible” I knew I had to download it ASAP.   I’ll be reading it next! Amazon says this:  “A sweeping, unforgettable novel from The New York […]

Book of the Week: House Rules by Jodi Picoult

There are 132 miles between me and some of the people I love the most…..so I can be found cruising on Interstate 85 between Dunwoody and Lee County, Alabama quite frequently.  To pass the time (and to keep myself awake) I often listen to books on Audible or to Andy Stanley podcasts.  One day last […]

Book of the Week: The Power of Praying for Your Adult Children

My friend, Pamela, told me about this book and I’ve been reading and re-reading it all summer.   I used to think that once my kids were grown…and flown…that parenting would be finished.   I was oh.so.wrong! Throughout this book the author (Stormie O’Martian) helps you pray with the power of God’s Word over your adult children […]

Book of the Week: Grown & Flown

Note from Audra:  So I cheated.  This isn’t really a “BOOK” of the week.  However, it  is a publication that I “READ” almost every day and the topic is so timely that I knew I must share.  I’m taking my oldest back for his second year at Auburn tomorrow…our UGA friends are mostly all back […]

Book of the week: The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

  Rather than reading this week, I’ve spent a lot of time hanging out with  my husband’s parents.   Both of them are avid readers and have book clubs of their own.  So…I asked Rosie (my mother-in-law) what she’s been reading and she told me that her friend Pat recommended The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper […]

Books of the Week: Marriage Vacation & Younger

by Audra Anders for The Aha! Connection Confession time….I’m hooked on the hit TV Series, Younger.  It isn’t my fault though.  I completely blame Ana Bilbao-Granadillo.  She’s an amazing Spanish teacher at Dunwoody High and we’ve both been told we look alike.  One day while discussing that we should pretend that she’s my YOUNGER sister, […]

Book of the Week: The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

The Great Alone: A Novel I know three families heading to Alaska for summer cruises this year.   I’m personally a warm weather vacation kind of gal and have never even considered wanting to go to Alaska….until now.  One of my Alaska bound girlfriends (Kristin) texted me last week that while reading this book she kept […]

Book of the Week: One Good Thing

I love Wendy Wax’s Ten Beach Road series and the colorful, delightful women who love the beach as much as I do! Interestingly enough, I’ve been to all of the places that Wendy writes about in these books… which makes it so much fun for me!  Plus, I’m the same age as one of the […]

Book of the Week: The Letter by Kathryn Hughes

My friend Annemarie suggested this book to me.  When I noticed it was listed on Amazon as “the #1 ebook bestseller” I figured it was worth a go.  I literally read this book on the beach in Destin last week in one sitting.   Maybe that’s why my neck hurts this week?  Was it worth the […]

Book of the Week: The Keeper of Lost Things

This is nothing short of a sweet and magical little gem of a book.   The characters are delightful.   My favorite is named Sunshine.  She has Downs Syndrome but declares to everyone that she is a “Dancing Drone”.  Everyone in this book has something lost and found and Anthony, the “keeper of lost things” helps them […]
