As any reader of my blog, friends and family can attest to, I love to read. There is something about a great book to lift your spirits, let your imagination flow, and teach you something you may not have realized you needed to learn. I love books!
Last year I managed to read over 250 books to review here on the blog. I know, crazy isn't it?
As much as I loved that (and still do) I found that I missed out on reading just for me. I read some pretty incredible books last year, so this year instead of going out and buying new or used books to add to my personal TBR (to-be-read) pile, I decided to create a challenge for myself and read one or two books a month of my personal favorites from last couple of years that I have been reviewing books on the blog.
So here is the list. Again, I have read all these, or will be in the next several weeks, but am now going to re-read them for me and really dig deep and allow God to teach me through these amazing authors. I will update you on on thoughts as the months go, and even post the links to the original reviews!
