Cold Tangerines - Blog Book Club

Let's start a book club.
I'll throw out the first suggestion
I'm reading a book called "Cold Tangerines" by Shauna Niequist.

Have you ever read a book and felt like
the author has been stalking you for months
and instead of this being their story it's more like your story.

You identify with every word that the author writes
and you begin to feel so thankful that you're
not the only one who has felt a certain way
about sooo many things that happen in life.
That's where i'm currently finding myself.

"Cold Tangerines is a collection of stories that celebrate the extraordinary moments hidden in our everyday lives. It is about God, and about life, and about the thousands of daily ways in which an awareness of God changes and infuses everything."

I'm only 20% through this book, say's my kindle app,
but i've already decided that I absolutely adore it.

It's really real and touching and I love it so much
that it might just be a yearly read to remind myself that
i'm not the only one that thinks the way I do.
I'm pretty sure Shauna and I would be great friends.

I think one of the toughest parts of growing up
is finding the real you and being happy with that person.

Over the last 6 or so years, from 18 to almost 24
I've been on a quest to find myself.

A quest to really understand how I feel about
everyday life situations that are constantly
floating all around us like religion, politics, jobs, money, 
family, relationships, people, etc.

Shauna really captures the essence of 
figuring out life and doing it on your terms and God's terms
and along the way something wonderful happens
and it all just falls into place and you're just good.

She's like a word magician and I love her!

Here's a little blurb that I love from
what i've read so far.

I lovveee this book.
I think it's a great read so far
and i'm sure i'll continue to love it
as I continue to read it.

I'll give an overall synopsis of it
once i finish it!! :)

Hope you're all having a great day!
