Book Nook: Scrappy Little Nobody – Anna Kendrick

I didn’t really have a reason to read a book by Anna Kendrick. I’ve only ever seen her in a couple movies, and I didn’t finish any of those movies thinking, “Oh man, what else can I watch her in?!”

But I felt like it would be an entertaining enough book to read, which is pretty similar to how I feel about the movies I’ve seen her in. They’re entertaining enough to watch, but I can’t see myself going out of my way to recommend them to somebody.

Scrappy Little Nobody turned out to be just that.

Book Nook: Embracing the Broken – Tiffany Webster

Book Nook: Embracing the Broken – Tiffany Webster

I recently decided I wanted to make a change to the books I read on Sundays. In order to make it more of an uplifting day, I made the decision to read books on Sundays that have some type of gospel or spiritual significance.

But who cares…Not the 26-year-old who got to look at Audrey Hepburn every day, that’s for sure.

Book Nook: Where the Red Fern Grows – Wilson Rawls

Where the Red Fern Grows was my favorite book for years. From what I remember, I was in middle school the first time I read it. I think it was the first book to ever make me cry, and I was so impressed that a book could do that.

I had cried during movies plenty of times. But crying from reading a book? Never.

Over the years, I’ve grown to love anything that can make me cry. If something like a book or a movie can make me cry, it immediately gets the thumbs up from me.
