Last week, Amanda asked how I feel about not finishing books. Although I hadn’t really had that experience yet this year (even though I hated Maze Runner, I needed to finish it to get answers!), her question was the impetus I needed to go ahead and set aside People Before Profit. While I find the biography of the Bob’s Red Mill founder interesting, it’s just not holding my attention, and I’ve been putting off reading in general because I don’t feel like reading it!

This Week’s Reads
You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream by Holley Gerth
I had the chance to review Holley Gerth’s new book (after hearing friend rave up her!), and this book is packed full of encouragement for any woman who’s ever had a dream. Whether your dream is to launch a business, start a ministry, or give your all to your home and family, Holley is a firm believer in going after the dreams that God has given you. She encourages you to overcome your excuses and take practical steps toward making your dreams a reality, wherever you are on the journey! As someone who is already living her dream, I was tempted to skim through parts of the book, but there is really so much good stuff here that I’m glad I stuck with it!
Moonlight Masquerade by Ruth Axtell
I love historical fiction, and I really enjoyed this story. The plot line is different, focusing on a female spy during the regency era, and the romance is an unlikely one that left me wondering if and how it would work out in the end. Unfortunately, I’ll admit that I don’t know much about Napoleon’s reign in France, and I felt a little lost during parts of the story because I don’t know enough about the political climate and history surrounding it. My favorite historical fiction books fill in all that information for you, so that you’re actually learning as you read, and this one really left me with more questions than answers.
