Savor by Shauna Niequist {A Book Review}

I have been looking forward to reading Savor: Living Abundantly Where You Are, As You Are by Shauna Niequist since I first heard she was writing it. I have heard her speak several times via video at MOPS events and I have read her book Bread and Wine and LOVED IT!

I want to start by saying that writing a review on a devotional that is meant to be read daily over the course of a year is a bit difficult. I also want to say that I am basing this off of the days I've read since receiving this book a couple of weeks ago as well as the various days throughout the book that I've skimmed. 

That being said, I really enjoyed/am enjoying this book. I love Shauna's writing style as it's easily relatable as well as witty. She writes from the depths of her soul and is just open and honest. 
I enjoyed the quick nature of each day's insert. However, I think this book may even be better just read as short stories than as a devotional just because it doesn't (in my opinion) have a full devotional nature to it. 

That is not to discredit the book because it is so good! I highly recommend this book to anyone who has enjoyed Shauna's writing in the past and/or is just looking for a fun/encouraging daily read. 

I review for BookLook Bloggers 

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers  book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
