Two Book Series that Made Me Laugh and Cry
Snuggling up with a good book is always a good way to relieve stress any time of year. In the Fall as the weather gets colder, I am finding myself enjoying a good book next to the warm bukhari unwinding from hectic school days. This month our whole family has been reading the same book series which has been fun except when someone who is ahead gives away what is going to happen next. I find when school is in session I gravitate to books that are easy to read and sometimes hard to put down. My nonfiction gets put back on the shelf only to be taken out on weekends and breaks from school.
2. The Discarded Heroes Series by Ronie Kendig
This series is set around a team of elite warriors who have had trouble adjusting back to civilian life. In the books, they find their place as a part of this team that goes in and takes care of problems under the radar. Each book focuses on one or two members of the team as they deal with PTSD issues. Each team members has different PTSD symptoms showing the different sides to this issue. As the first series was relaxing to read, this series was intense and hard to put down. My husband, son and I have read the whole series with W. just starting the last book. The books gave me a great appreciation for our military guys and all they go through mentally and emotionally once they come home. I enjoyed the comradeship of the team and how they became a family who stuck together through thick and thin. The plots were full of humorous quips, interesting twists, tear felt moments, and issues to think about.
Is there a book or series you have enjoyed this month? I would love to hear about it. If you are interested in other books that people are reading I am linking up with Modern Ms. Darcy in her monthly twitterture linkup. TJ
