It’s a new year and a new year marks the start of a new book list!
Just like many of you, I am a crazy busy momma so I am fairly certain I will only get through half of this list BUT a girl can dream, right? I am following bloggers who have a goals to read one book a month or even a week — I’d be lucky if I can read a book in three to six months!
Regardless of my busy schedule, I know that reading is one of the few things which can expand my mind and take me to a new world. So, my goal is to AT LEAST finish eight of these sixteen books this year. That averages out to be around… a month and a quarter reading time per book? I don’t know, I am terrible with math.
These are the sixteen books which have caught my eye in the past year that I haven’t read (or haven’t finished). Yes, there are a ton more fantastic Christian books to check out — just search Amazon, you’ll find thousands — but these are the books with a message that resonated with me!
Also, stay tuned — or scroll to the bottom — to take a peak of the giveaway I am hosting!
