Sharing a book list is very revealing. I feel like I’m letting you take a peek in my closet or diary or something. My interests, hobbies, and beliefs are all out on display for you to see!
Here is my current stack of real books. I also have a stack of library books and books lined up on my kindle.
The Chronicles of Narnia – My husband reads every night to our boys and recently started this series with them. My oldest is loving them, the youngest get’s a little bored. They are a childhood favorite for me.
Seven by Jen Hatmaker – If you want your perspective to be completely twisted and turned read this book. I just hit my one year anniversary of my Kenya mission trip and this book is bringing out so many lessons that I learned on that trip that I’m not realizing until now.
The Odyssey by Homer – I am a lover of classic books. Even though classics take much longer to read because of the language or the themes, I enjoy the challenge. If you haven’t tried to read this book I would suggest it, it’s actually easier than it might seem.
Made To Crave by Lisa Terkeurst – Lisa just knows how to reveal herself in her books in a way that is so helpful for anyone who reads them.
A Circle of Quiet by Madeleine L’Engle – After the first few paragraphs I was completely intrigued by this book. I would love to sit and have a cup of coffee and hear about life from her, too bad she passed away. She has some very profound thoughts and I am so grateful to have read that she went through the tired thirties. I’m in the midst of being exhausted and overwhelmed by my kids almost every day and it’s wonderful to read the truth from someone who went through it!
The Sacred Romance by Brent Curtis and John Eldridge – I haven’t started this yet, but it was recommended to me so I’m excited to read it.
One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp – I read this book for the first time about two years ago and it completely changed my life in a very good way. I continually come back to it to learn more from each page. My own gifts list is up over 250 and it is amazing to look back. I highly recommend this one. If you don’t get the book at least check out her blog, A Holy Experience.
On the kindle I have Snow White Sorrow by Cameron Jace, some Jane Austen, Parenting from the Overflow by Teri Lynne Underwood, Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider, and Anna Karenina.
From the library I have several books on embroidery, color, and business.
Do you have any suggestions? I don’t like randomly choosing books so I love recommendations!
