And the Rest of the Summer Reading List…

1-3. Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games Trilogy, including The Hunger Games (384 pages, 2008), Catching Fire (391 pages, 2009), and Mockingjay (400 pages, 2009). Published by Scholastic Books.

I really enjoyed this trilogy. It took me all of one weekend to read all three books! I loved the blatant social commentary on the global dystopia. (The first movie was actually really good too, in my opinion.)

4. Julia Rothman’s Farm Anatomy: The Curious Parts & Pieces of Country Life (219 pages. Storey Publishing, 2011).

This book is more of an illustrated guide to life on a farm, with detailed descriptions of parts of a cow, to tractor makes and models, all with beautifully hand drawn artwork. I liked this book so much I bought a copy for my folks to keep on their farm in Tennessee. It’s an excellent resource, especially for hands-on children.

5. Lysa TerKeurst’s Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food (160 pages, published by Zondervan, 2010).

This book is written by the President of the Proverbs 31 Ministries, who publishes the free P31 e-devotionals I get daily. So many people (especially women, it seems) have a hard time finding their comfort in God instead of food. This book is available to help those people change their thinking, and thereby their actions, about what (or Who) to crave first! Easy to read and apply, written by someone who’s “been there, done that.”
