12 Favorites of 2012
Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day:: Start this in the morning and I’ll bet you have trouble NOT finishing it in a single day.
Quiet:: It might be my personal goal for the year to encourage more people to read this and Introverts of the Church. Such. Good. Books. (for both Introverts, Extroverts, and those who have to ever engage with other people.)
Love Does:: When I have to stop constantly and tell someone about what I’m reading, the book will always make it to my favorites list.
Anne of the Island:: Working my way through this series. Can you believe I’ve never read them before?
Grace Based Parenting:: Need some fresh parenting inspiration? Start with this book.
7:: Great message, hilarious writing, life changing. Not a typical pastors wife author in a super awesome way. Next month I’m joining Adrienne and the new Bible Study that accompanies this book: Stage Your Own Mutiny.
Les Mis:: I listened to the full unabridged version of this masterpiece. I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing the movie just yet but my sister has, twice. And after talking about it with her I’d recommending reading the book not just the fabulous movie. It sounds like for the sake of time they had to fly through some great portions of the the story.
The Lamplighter:: The book that inspired Lamplighter Ministries. Another one I couldn’t help telling people about as I read it! Haven’t read a Lamplighter book yet that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy!
Educating the WholeHearted Child:: Excellent book. Great reference!
The Well-Educated Mind:: Inspiring! So many books. So little time. I want to always be learning.
The Good Earth:: Fascinating story of a man’s life in rural, pre-revolutionary China. So, so good. Pulitzer Prize winning book.
The Great Divorce:: C. S. Lewis always wins. His writing is packed so full it can’t be read just once.
Do you agree? Are any of these on your “Favorite Books” list?
Stay tuned for some thoughts on my reading goals for 2013: the year we welcome baby #3!
