Happy September, Glam Readers!

It's time to crack open our September selection. But first, a little background on how this book came to be on our 2019 Reading List.

Every year I select titles from 12 categories to ensure each year's book line-up is well-rounded with titles we're excited to read and titles we'd never pick up if not for this band of readers.

One of those twelve categories is "an author that changed my life." Emily Freeman is our 2019 Author That Changed My Life. Ten years ago, her book Grace For The Good Girl put words to thoughts and emotions I thought only I was thinking and feeling.

If this is your first encounter with Emily, I'm so excited to introduce you! If you know her and love her, check out her other titles and her episode of the What Should I Read Next? podcast!

Hi Faith & Deanna!

I hope you two are enjoying Emily's words as much as I am. There's pink highlighter on almost every page of this beautiful book!

HollyAnn | 1 comments There is a short mention of 9/11 in the book, and I just so happened to be reading that chapter this morning.

I had that same experience and it was such a lovely moment. I also loved the mention of orange roses against a blue sky.
