2017 Book Reading List

I haven't blogged in a while. In fact, I'm pretty sure the last time I blogged it was about childbirth, so let's pretend that never happened and carry on. 

I've always loved to read. Growing up, I escaped my chores to read until my mom got smart and hid my books. But in this crazy season of life, I haven't read as much as I'd like to, and I'm hoping to be able to change that a bit this year (due to some other changes I'm making!). Well, except we're moving, and I may stop doing everything and simply survive for a few months. But this is one way I'm trying to keep accountable!

I used a combination of The Modern Mrs. Darcy and Tim Challies' reading challenge to come up with these... and I'm still looking for another novel or two. Send me your recommendations... except no corny Christian romance.  😉

The Mingling of Souls (Matt Chandler) - marriage
Good and Angry (David Powlinson) - personal growth
Parenting (Paul Tripp) - parenting
Refresh (Drew/Green) - special needs parenting
The Gospel-Centered Parent (Rose Miller) - a book you already have
Psalms (Tim Keller) - devotional
The Scars that Have Shaped Me (Vaneetha Risner) - book on suffering
Desperate (Sarah Mae/Clarkson) - a book someone said changed their life
Humble Roots (Hannah Anderson) - a book written this year (2016)
America's First Daughter (Stephanie Dray) - historical novel
The Little Paris Bookshop (Nina George) - a book set somewhere you want to visit
Everyone Brave Is Forgiven (Chris Cleave) - recommended by someone who has great taste
Hillbilly Elegy (J.D. Vance) - a memoir
A Man Called Ove (Fredrik Backman) - NY Times Bestseller list
Falling Free (Shannan Martin) - a book of your choice
Daring Greatly (Brene Brown) - self-help book
Unglued (Lisa TerKeurst) - book outside your comfort zone

So that's it. If you've read any of these and they're terrible, be a good friend and let me know. 😉
