The 2014 Book List

As a kid, I would sit at the kitchen table and read the back of the cereal box. Now as an adult, I have a Kindle full of stories and traditional books on one specific shelf awaiting my attention. 

I read in the school pick up line and while waiting for my son's allergy shots when he doesn't beg me to play Memory or I Spy. I keep an ongoing list of what I've read over at Goodreads, but I like to share it here a couple times of year too. {This is an updated post of the one I shared in July.}

And, yes, my own book is on the list. I read it many, many times this year before self-publishing it this fall. 


Non-fiction // Christianity

Non-fiction // Parenthood

Non-fiction // Marriage

Non-fiction // Writing

What have you read this year that's worth adding to my Amazon wish list?

  1. Oh my goodness. I'm not sure I even read through 12 books this year. I will say every one I did read was rather powerful, and most I know you loved too. Like Love Idol, Chasing God, Storyline and Bread & Wine. I'm hoping to be more focused in my reading time the coming year. Thanks for sharing your list friend. I am looking forward to Wednesday's post when you share about your One Word. :) Love you. xoxo

    Make a list - you may surprise yourself with how much you've read. Plus, the ones you did read were my favorites! :) I'm reading two books right now, which isn't my best plan. I usually do better one at a time. But I was so excited when they both came in the mail! My post for Wednesday is ready to go. :) love you. xoxo.

  3. Dude. I am blown away by how many non-fiction books you've read!! I'm so embarrassed by how few I've read (although I certainly make up for it in the fiction department...). I *am* glad I got to read YOUR book, though! That is a great one I'm so happy to have on my list! :)

    Yeah, it was on a mission there for a little while. And then I kept getting opportunities to review such good books. I can't resist them. I'm reading two more right now. :) That's really nice for you to say about my book - I'm grateful for your kindness and editing!

    Wow! This list is seriously impressive! I'm taking notes for what to put on my "read this" list!

    Thanks. It sort of surprised me. That's the beauty of keeping a running list. Did you read anything you loved this year?

    It looks like you covered most of what I read! However in the fiction category I loved both Lizzy and Jane and The Butterfly and the Violin,. (Hmmmm, didn't notice the pattern in the titles until I typed it out, wonder if that says something about me?) And in the non-fiction category Godspeed by Britt Merrick was a game changer for me on living missionally!

    Good to know! I'm going to check those out!
