What I'm Reading ~ Weekend 6/8-10/12

The Anniversary Waltz: A novel

Hey y'all! I can't believe how fast my vacation  has gone! I've been having a merry old time too, riding horses, and camping out. Today I will be waking up early and riding my horse down the mountain to help drive cattle up the mountain. So yes, I've been having a blast! And reading too, when I get home I'll be sure to post some pictures :) I just thought that I'd drop in and tell ya'll, "Hello."

So here's what I'll be reading on the car trip home!

The Anniversary Waltz as you might know my mom already read this one and said that it was super!

Here's the Blurb:

At their sixtieth anniversary party, Adam Carlson asks his wife, Elizabeth, for their customary waltz. After the dance they gather the family and share their story—a story of love and courage overcoming adversity and thriving in the face of overwhelming odds.
It’s the summer of 1946, and Adam has just returned from the war to his home in Reunion, Montana. At a town festival he meets Elizabeth Baxter, a young woman going steady with his former high school rival and now influential banker, Nathan Roberts.
When Adam and Elizabeth share a waltz in a deserted pavilion one evening, their feelings begin to grow and they embark on a journey, and a dance, that will last a lifetime.
 Glamorous Illusions
And I'm really looking forward to Glamorous Illusions :)
Here's the blurb:
When Cora Kensington learns she is the illegitimate daughter of a copper king, her life changes forever. Even as she explores Europe with her new family, she discovers that the most valuable journey is within. The first book in the Grand Tour series takes you from the farms of Montana through England and France on an adventure of forgiveness, spiritual awakening, and self-discovery.
How Evil Works: Understanding and Overcoming the Destructive Forces That Are Transforming AmericaAnd last but certainly not least is How Evil Works by David Kupelian, which is a non-fiction book that I highly recommend. It talks about how so many things like over medicating our children, child predator teachers in schools, and Wiccan, and Wiccan-like religions are undermining America. I was shocked when I read about how schools are paying child predator teachers to resign, and giving them positive reviews to get them to leave their system and go on to another one! A hard to put down read! (It is a Christian book, in case you were wondering).

Here's the blurb:
 The great paradox of the human race—that we are intelligent enough to understand just about everything, except ourselves—has never been more striking, or more troubling, than right now. Specifically, we don’t understand evil—what it is, how it works, and why it so routinely and effortlessly ruins our lives.

In How Evil Works , veteran newsman and bestselling author David Kupelian takes a fresh and insightful look at this ancient subject. Diving into the most electrifying news stories of the day—from terrorism and school violence to high-profile sex scandals and dysfunctional Hollywood celebrities—Kupelian explores the secret world of seduction, corruption, and daily temptations in everyday life, demonstrating his uncanny knack for breaking down complex, elusive, and intimidating topics.

Kupelian shows that once we really understand “how evil works”—not just in the headline-making disasters and crimes that dominate the news, but also in our own lives—evil loses much of its power, and the way out becomes more clear. And that’s precisely why this book bears a powerful message of genuine hope.

So what are you reading? I'd love to hear about it, so don't be shy and share what you're reading :)
