2017 Book List

One of my favorite things about the new year is putting together a brand new book list! I’ve decided to only pick ten new books to read this year. I settled on this number since there are a number of titles I’d like to re-read this year and I’m not counting those on my book list. I also thought that ten would leave enough margin for new books that I pick up during the year. Something new I’d like to incorporate into my reading this year is the use of audio books. I think between Audible and library digital rentals I can fit in a few audiobooks throughout the year!

I’ve talked about my night time routine before, but I have to revisit it because it’s truly one of my favorite parts of the day. Those 15-30 minutes of reading each night help settle down all the thoughts and all the things swirling around in my brain. I feel so much more relaxed and ready for bed after a few chapters. I’ve even learned how to juggle reading multiple titles at once (it’s a big deal for me since I never understood how people could do it).

    I have the Sacred Search on my list of books to read. You should read The Lipstick Gospel, its a free ebook on Stephanie May Wilson’s blog, its really good. I also read Uniinvited by Lysa Terkerst, that was really good too, as well as Fresh Out of Amazing by Stacy Thacker, and i finished Wholeheartly in January.
