June 2020 Book, Movie, and TV Review

July 1, 2020

Happy Wednesday friends! It is hard to believe that we have started the first day of July! The days feel like they are flying by!! Today I am so excited to share my book, movie, and TV review with y'all for June! Before I start though- if you have any suggestions for me for July please let me know! I am constantly looking for new ideas so please pass on your suggestions! A full disclaimer: I definitely chose to go with really easy-reading and non-serious books this month. It was a full month of learning about heavy subjects and dealing with some personal things so I was looking forward to reading "lighter" things in my reading.

I have shared so many times here on the blog about my love of Robin Jones Gunn's writings and so when her newest book was released this Spring I was so excited to save up my pennies and read it. I really enjoyed it and it had some things to really think through that I think are so relatable to lots of people (especially if you are married) with the concept of "emotional affairs". I haven't seen another Christian book address this in a tender way like this one did and so I would whole heartedly recommend it.

Similar book recommendations that I have read by Robin Jones Gunn that I would recommend to this book: 
This was the first book in the series (but you could read them as stand alone books too) that I have talked about this book SO much on the blog - but it truly was something that I feel was her best book ever written! I took away so many precious nuggets from the story, cried and laughed through it and was completely encouraged. You can find it to purchase HERE

Also by Robin Jones Gunn, this series (not written in first person *smiles*) is incredibly sweet and encouraging. You can read the books in any order but they do loosely follow and build on each other if you want to read them in order. And guess what? Hallmark is releasing the first book in the series (Secrets) as a Christmas movie this December! I am SO excited!
Years ago I discovered Susan May Warren as a writer and had read her 3 book series, "The Team Hope" collection (you can find it HERE). I found this book (the third in another series that she wrote in 2009 and thought I would try it. Honestly... I was bored. It felt like a bad Hallmark movie and I was bored reading it. I appreciated the message that was being conveyed, but it just didn't hold my attention and felt that the story was incredibly drawn out and dramatic. I hate to say it but I really can't recommend this unless you are looking for a very cheesy book. 
{three} Dark Ambitions
Discovering Irene Hannon's books years ago was such a delightful treat. I enjoy her mysteries a lot and over the years there have been different ones that I have thought were really great. They are clean (not graphic) and have great character development along with an interesting story and plot line. I was excited to read her newest one, Dark Ambitions that came out this past year. It was interesting and had a twist that I didn't see coming. I would definitely recommend it. 

Another thing that I enjoyed was the way that she brought in characters from one of my other favorite series (Private Justice Series) by her and it felt like you were being reunited with old friends. *smiles* I would definitely recommend this one!

Life is so busy at the cabin that we haven't watched any TV or Movies this month so I will definitely share more in the coming months! In the meantime we are loving the opportunity to read and talk and hang out!
