So, I read 40 books in 2014, which for the record, was the first time I actually kept track. I’ve decided that I want to read 50 in 2015 and I want to be better about telling you what I’m reading because I love to read.
1. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
This is one those books that been on my list for forever, especially when I heard it was being made into a movie. I loved it, it is extremely descriptive and easy to put yourself into the story. I can’t wait to read Scorch Trials.
2. Bossypants by Tina Fey
I love Tina and have wanted to read this one since it came out. I thoroughly enjoyed it and laughed a lot. Tina is hilarious and it comes through in her book.
3. Let’s All Be Brave by Annie F. Downs
I fell in love with Annie’s writing style in her first book. This one was incredible and it challenged me in all the right ways. Thanks for sharing your story, Annie, keep writing!
4. The Rise and Fall of the American Teenager by Thomas Hines
So, this one was a good for my Youth Ministry class I took in January. It is the history of youth culture in America. It was interesting and I enjoyed reading it.
5. Gospel-Power Parenting by William P. Farley
This is another Youth Ministry book. Let me say this, if you’re married and have kids: READ THIS BOOK. It was awesome and one that I will be referring to when I get married and have kids.
6. Precious in His Sight by Roy B. Zuck
This was my third book for my youth ministry and I did not like it at all but it’s a good reference book for anything that has to do with children in the Bible.
7. The Revelation, The Fire, and The Fall (Advance Reader) by Jenny L. Cote
So, I have a full book review for this one coming. SOON. It comes out in March and I’d love you for you to read it. I have fallen in love with Max and Liz and Jenny’s writing.
8. Why is Everyone Hanging Out without Me? by Mindy Kaling
This is another autobiography and I loved it. It gave me a new appreciation for Mindy Kaling and I laughed hard quite a few times.
9. Cold Tangerines by Shauna Niequist
This book is one that I started with my friends Rachel and Hannah at a Breathe Retreat in college and it had been on my list for a long time. I loved this book and it was an easy read.
