I’m a huge fan of books. I have days that I enjoy Goodreads more than I enjoy Facebook. I always sign up for a reading challenge in the new year, and I try to read 50+ books a year. These days, “reading” looks more like audiobooks while I’m cooking, cleaning and editing, but they still count! I often have people asking for book recommendations, so I thought I’d hop on and share my 10 favorite books that i’ve read, ever. There’s some fiction and non-fiction all mixed in!
This is a great book for anyone struggling with the day-to-day stuff. It can be so hard to find purpose in everything that we do, but this book was a great reminder for our daily lives.
I read this book in 2018, and it was easily the best fiction book I’ve ever read. I listened to this one on audiobook - through the library - and was so impressed by the narrators. Ruta does an amazing job taking lesser-known historical events and bringing them to life.
This book changed my life in so many ways. It gives a basic walk through of the history of feminism, and then Rebecca digs into Biblical femininity. It has a lot of great thoughts to chew on and helps to understand how the Bible and culture can interact, but how as Christian women, we are called to live differently.
I’m a fan of quirky fiction, so most of the fiction you’ll see here is exactly that, and this is no exception. It’s a light-hearted book with a little mystery thrown in. Definitely worth the read if you just need something to escape reality.
Oh this book. Every.single.woman. needs to read this book, because it’s helpful! This book walks you through saying yest to the right things, and creating margin in your life. It has exercise and space to process throughout the book, which is also a huge help.
Another quirky read! This is one of my favorite books, because the characters are so interesting and the story line just keeps you turning pages. It’s witty, weird and just such a good, light read.
This is another favorite book for anyone who has a home to keep. This book is written by someone who struggles to stay tidy, not a clean freak who somehow keeps their whole world organized. This gives extremely practical ways to have a clean home and has changed the way our home functions. IT’S SO GOOD.
This book is heart-breaking and will make you smile all at once. This is a children’s book and puts you into the mind of a young girl with Asperger’s. I love books that help you see life from a different perspective, and this one definitely does a great job with this.
My husband and I are very passionate about foster care. I run a non-profit on the side that provides bags to foster children as they enter new placements. (Click here to learn more) This book is a really hard book to read. It will forever change the way you view foster families and the children that enter them.
This is a book I need to read every year. It has so many great reminders about the Gospel and how we can practically (and how we don’t) live it out every day. This is an excellent read.
