Hey there, friends! This month I've got a great list for you. These are some GOOD reads and I'm so excited to share them with you. Some of these authors will be on The Happy Hour VERY soon, so keep a look out for those episodes!
Here's what I read in November:
I See You
Terence Lester's book I See You: How Love Opens Our Eyes to Invisible People is a must-read. I cannot recommend it enough. So many times we can overlook the homeless and poor in our own cities. This book helps us know how we can be part of the solution. Please read it!
American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins is part of Oprah's book club, and I'm so very glad I decided to read it. It was recommended to me by my friend, Allie Worthington and I listened to it on audiobook. This is a fiction book (I know, I do read fiction too on occasion!) about a mother and son seeking asylum in America. This book was incredibly written and I loved every minute of it.
Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man
Emmanuel Acho's book Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man is the guide we all need as we learn to be true allies. I literally read the entire book in one day. It is a book that every white person should read. It answers questions that a lot of people are afraid to ask, and Emmanuel is willing to go there with you. It is one of the best books I've read this year, period. Pick up a copy ASAP, friends.
Forgiving What You Can't Forget
Lysa TerKeurst's released her newest book Forgiving What You Can't Forget: Discover How to Move On, Make Peace with Painful Memories, and Create a Life that's Beautiful Again. It is such a wonderful read. Y'all know I'm a big fan of Lysa, and she has written yet another masterpiece. Lysa will be on The Happy Hour again very soon talking about this book – make sure you're subscribed to the podcast so you don't miss it!
If you know me, you know I love memoirs. I just love the opportunity to see someone deeper, even if it's someone I don't know personally. Matthew McConaughey's book Greenlights is a very raw look into his life. I listened to it on audible and he is a phenomenal storyteller. If you enjoy memoirs, consider this as your next read!
