My 2016 Book List



Y'all, it is no secret that I love to read. Reading has always been a hobby of mine that has had a bit of an ebb and flow in recent years. As a child, I loved to read fiction books because I could get lost in a story and pretend that I was one of the characters. However, as an adult, I have come to love non-fiction, because it is easy for me to relate to the author and learn from them in a way that applies to my life. If you want to join me, use the hashtag #weread2016 to show me what you're reading and share some good reads with others! One of my goals for this year is to read one book a month. I've got a few books that I am finishing up that I need to work on, but these are the books I'll be reading for sure this year:

Interrupted: When Jesus Wrecks Your Comfortable Christianity by Jen Hatmaker
Hands Free Life: Nine Habits for Overcoming Distraction, Living Better, and Loving More by Rachel Macy Stafford

Undaunted: Daring to do what God calls you to do by Christine Caine
