Five on Friday: Current Reads

Happy Friday!! I'm looking forward to this weekend as we celebrate Collin turning 5 with his first friend birthday party! How did 5 years go by so quickly?! That's a story for another day. :)

Today I'm linking up with Darci {and friends} for Five on Friday and Lauren Elizabeth for High Five for Friday. I thought it would be fun to highlight some of the books I'm currently reading, getting ready to read or will be reading in the near future. So let's do it!

{one} Balancing it All by Candace Cameron Bure Who doesn't love D.J. Tanner, right? Well, I've come to really enjoy Candace Cameron Bure as a wife and mother and most importantly, a believer in Jesus. Her new book is a fun read detailing how she maintains the appropriate balance in the life.

{two} Hands Free Mama by Rachel Macy Stafford I was turned onto this book after reading a blog post Rachel wrote back in December. It's all about living in the moment. I'll be reading this along with some other momma friends sometime in the near future, so if you'd like to read it with me (us) let me know!

{three} Restless by Jennie Allen I'm so excited to start reading this book!! I actually snagged the kindle version for $2.99 the other day. Nice! That's neither here nor there, though. This book is about finding purpose within our everyday life, seeing God's will for our life weaved into every twist and turn of our story.

{four and five} Sparkly Green Earrings and The Antelope in the Living Room by Melanie Shankle. Sparkly Green Earrings is about Motherhood and The Antelope in the Living Room is about marriage. I've heard nothing but good things about both of these books...that they have you laughing until you're crying. That sounds so fun!!
There ya have it, some of my current reads. Here's a question. Would you be interested in a review of each book when I finished reading them? Or, better yet, if anybody wants to read along, let me know and we could read together.

What about you? Are you a reader? What are some of your current reads?
