Books Read for the Year: 190/250
Topical Books/Monthly Goal Books:
The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning (spiritual). Really enjoyed this read!
Luke’s Story by Tim LaHaye (spiritual). I enjoyed this re-read!
The Paradigm, by Jonathan Cahn (TBR). This was disturbing on a lot of levels.
The Oracle, by Jonathan Cahn (TBR). Cahn’s books are always so detailed.
Monster by Frank Peretti (TBR). This was pretty creepy at first, but I ended up enjoying it.
Lark Ascending, by Silas House. I really felt like this book was missing a plot and a point.
Treachery on Tenth Street, by Kate Belli. This was a solid mystery read, and I enjoyed the characters.
To Capture His Heart, by Nancy Campbell Allen. Another solid read, with a bit of mystery thrown in.
When We Had Wings, by by Ariel Lawhon, Kristina McMorris and Susan Meissner. This was a fantastic read! I enjoyed WWII historical fiction, but I really loved this–I actually loved all three viewpoint characters equally, which is unusual for me.
Marlowe Banks, Redesigned, by Jacqueline Firkins. This was a fun, if somewhat predictable read.
The Stolen Book of Evelyn Aubrey, by Serena Burdick (review forthcoming). this took me a little bit to get into, but then I became engrossed! I enjoyed the past timeline the most.
The Passage, by Justin Cronin. This took me a looong time to read! I enjoyed it, but I’m not sure I’ll read the others.
Think, Learn, Succeed, by Caroline Leaf (audiobook). This was fascinating, but I think I’d have been better off with a physical copy.
The Truth About Everything, by Bridget Farr. I only got about 10% of the way through this, because the idea of parents leaving their daughter so uneducated about basic life facts completely horrified me.
Closer to Okay, by Amy Watson. This felt very scattered, erratic, and unrealistic to me.
Wild: The Life of Peter Beard: Photographer, Adventurer, Lover, by Graham Boynton. Solid writing, but Peter Beard himself just didn’t seem like the sort of person I want to spend a few hours reading about. His attitude towards his parents—hateful—was the clincher for me.
The Sacrifice, by Rin Chupeco. Made it about a third of the way through this, but it had some unexpected content, so I stopped reading.
Eyes Turned Skyward, by Alena Dillon. I read about 20% of this—and realized I couldn’t stand the characters. Any of them.
