Book Review: Happy Catholic

What's not to like about the sunny title of a book called Happy Catholic?  The book is written by Julie Davis, the same person who also blogs under the title Happy Catholic.  In her book, she seeks to offer us "glimpses of God in everyday life."

Overall, I found the book to be warm and lighthearted.  Quotes come from a variety of sources: scripture, saints, The Onion, Futurama, and even some Monty Python material.  Maybe you're scratching your head right now and trying to figure out how Monty Python or The Onion could possibly have something that inspires a glimpse of God.  Don't worry, Julie Davis makes it work and it all ties in beautifully.

Overall, Happy Catholic is an insightful book filled with quotes and Julie Davis' reflections on those quotes.  This book will lift up your spirits.  It's like chocolate brownies for the soul (if chocolate brownies don't cut it for you feel free to substitute some other food, it's ok so long as it's not chicken).  If you're looking for something you can read at the beach or poolside this summer, consider picking up a copy.  You'll be glad you did.

Visit Servant Books for more information on Happy Catholic.  I was provided with a complimentary review copy of this book by Servant Books in exchange for my honest review.
