So here are a few of my recent reads..
Christ followers if you haven't read Crazy Love yet, order it on Amazon right now. Francis Chan is awesome, challenging, engaging, and so raw. I felt so convicted throughout this book, and multiple times wished I had the courage and trust to sell everything I own and give it away. I did a review on a piece by Lisa Chan, Francis' wife, and plan on reading many more (ALL!) of his other books.
Emily Giffin is the talented author of the Something Borrowed series and most people don't know about her other great books. I've read all of them so this was first on my list when it recently came out. Seriously how can Emily write all of these emotional, engaging and awesome books?! Some authors books are all too similar but not Emily's!
I have two other books checked out right now...The Confession by James McGreevey and Silent Partner by Dina Matos McGreevey. The library clerk laughed when I checked these out and I said hey! Ya gotta read both sides! If you don't know about the McGreevey's, Google them. Not sure if I will have time to read them before they are due, may have to put them back on my To Read Shelf.
So any recommendations? I love all sorts of books...biographies, drama, suspense, romance, Christian, etc.

I've also done reviews on Bloom, Soul Revolution, Dream Big, and You Had Me At Woof.
Now onto music...
You'd laugh if you saw my Pandora stations. Everything from Tenth Avenue North to Frank Sinatra to Justin Timberlake and Drake. Lately we've been listening to a lot of praise music...mostly on Air1 radio or Pandora. We also love dubstep and Bassnectar, Awolnation, PassionPit type music. Jon loves metal (like super hardcore metal) and the funny thing is a lot of it is Christian music. I prefer MercyMe over screaming though :-). We usually listen to music at dinner and have been playing the Billie Holiday station quite a bit. Something about the trumpets and brass instruments and scratchy voices just totally relaxes me and gets me excited for Christmas (even though it's not Christmas music). Cliche but I also love Gangnam Style! We are going to SpiritFest (Christian music festival in Austin) on Sunday and can;
So what are you listening to? What are you reading?
