Reading Review: Celebrating Life

Cold Tangerines by Shauna Niequist

Let me start by saying…I love Shauna Niequist. I don’t know how she manages to sneak into my head and heart and write words that I think and feel but she does…and beautifully.

Cold Tangerines is a celebration of life. Celebrating friends and food and house church and old homes and babies and disappointment and struggle and hurt feelings and wounds inflicted by those you trust and love and faith and … life.

Much like a collection of journal entries, Shauna opens her heart and shares her life in a way that is incredibly relatable. Sweet and inspiring. Just make sure you have tissues on hand.

Personally, I think every woman should read Shauna’s books. This one and Bittersweet – which I read two years ago and still think about often.

Have you ever read a book and thought the author was speaking your thoughts?
