One of my favorite things at the beginning of the year is to go back and look at the books I read the past year. One fun thing about having a kindle is that I am able to go back and review what quotes I have highlighted the past year. I wish I could say that more of what I read stuck but hopefully some of it did. So here are both the fiction and non-fiction books that I enjoyed in no certain order.
Love’s Sacred Song/Love Amid the Ashes both by Mesu Andrews.
Love’s Sacred Song was a story of the lady in the Song of Solomon whereas Love Amid the Ashes was about Job and Jacob’s daughter, Dinah. I like how the author put the stories in their cultural context and made you think what if in regard to these bible stories. It also motivated me to reread Job and the Song of Solomon.
2. Life Support/Life Everlasting both by Robert Whitlow
I loved the characters in this two book series except for the lady who killed her husband. Don’t worry I am not giving anything away. This legal story had good twists with a peek at how God was working in the life of the lady lawyer to draw her to himself.
Aggie’s Inheritance Series by Chautona Havig
I write about this series here. I have read other books by Chautona this year but I would have to say this series is my favorite.
What Happens When Women Say Yes to God by Lysa Terkeust
I like how she speaks the truth but in a way that makes you want to change. This quote from page 70 of her books describes it best.
Turning Off the Noise-Tuning into Healthy Sound by Gwen Eber
Coffee Shop Conversations: Making the Most of Spiritual Small Talk by Dale and Jonalyn Fincher
Words by Ginny Yttrup
In the Land of Blue Burqas by Kate McCord
