Hey y’all! Here’s a progress update on my 2015 reading list. This is more for my own accountability to read good books instead of facebook, but maybe you’ll enjoy it, too.
- Unbroken: Whoa. I was not prepared for how gut-wrenching this book was. I’m glad I read it, but it was an emotionally difficult story.
- As Soon As I Fell: This was a helpful missionary memoir. It made me more thankful for the comforts I take for granted and has helped me to remember to pray for the missionaries we know. That life is no joke.
- First Family Detail: Blah. I read the whole thing but didn’t particularly enjoy it. It felt vindictive more than informative or enlightening. Next.
- First Family: I finished this book!! After taking months to read Founding Brothers last year, I was really excited to read this in two weeks. And I liked it.
- Fly a Little Higher: This one wasn’t on my reading list, but I received it as an e-book from Jen Hatmaker’s email list. I read it in two days and then followed up by watching documentaries about the family. Great read. Grab tissues.
- The Day Diana Died: Interesting, but it wasn’t my favorite book. I think it may have rushed to press in the post-Diana madness?
- Adoniram Judson: I had not read much about the Judson family before this book. Man, what faithfulness. I appreciated the different perspectives in the essays in this book.
- Humans of New York: I found out about this blog when I was visiting NYC. The book is full of beautiful, intriguing photographs. It was a nice read in the hour between “I want the kids to be in bed but they are crazy people” and “the kids are actually in bed”.
On to February!
