Love Is In the Air:: February Reading Challenge for Omaha Moms

Reading is easily my favorite hobby, but sometimes it’s so hard to find time to sit down and read. Last year, I started participating in reading challenges as a means to motivate myself to learn more. I love a good reading challenge.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I have put together a reading challenge for OMB moms that’s all about love! There are five genres of books, and my goal is to read one book from each one. Hopefully, this will help me read more and branch out on the types of books that I am reading!

Without further ado, I present:

February Reading ChallengeA Book About a Mother’s Love:

  • Missing Mom by Joyce Carol Oates
  • Patron Saint of Liars by Ann Patchett
  • Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple

A Modern Love Story:

  • The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo
  • There’s Cake in my Future by Kim Gruenenfelder
  • Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

A Classic Love Story:

  • Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
  • The Great Gatsby by F. Scott-Fitzgerald

A Thriller with a Romantic Side:

A Book About Female Friendship:

Obviously, this isn’t an extensive list, and it is by no means meant to be the be all end all of this reading challenge. I just wanted to provide some books that I have read or that I have on my “want to read” list. Pick one of these books or find a book that inspires you!

Their son, Bennett, passed away shortly after his birth and is a cherished member of the family’s daily life. Currently a homeschooling stay at home mom, Sarah loves the hustle and bustle of life with all of her boys! There’s never a quiet moment! She loves baseball, football, reading, traveling (mostly to Disney World), Harry Potter, pretending to be organized with the help of her planner and long, quiet Starbucks enhanced walks around Target!
