Books to Read in 2014

I love books. My perfect day consists of hanging out at Barnes and Noble and drinking ridiculous amounts of coffee. It would all be free too, since I'm talking about my perfect day and all.

But since that's not ever going to happen, and since Erik and I are on a mission to become debt free, the library is quickly becoming my new favorite place to get books. Sure I might have to wait a few weeks before I can read the book I'm so excited about, and I can't bring coffee in the library, but it's all FREE! That right there makes all the waiting and lack of coffee consuming totally worth it. :)

I really enjoy reading books that challenge me and encourage me in the season of life I'm in. I love reading fiction too, but I find that once I start in on a good story I can't put it down, and that's not always the best situation to put myself in with 5 small children who are almost constantly needing something(remind me to tell you about the time I read the Hunger Games. It wasn't pretty.)

With all that being said, here are some books I'm hoping on reading this year. I've already ordered some of them from the library too, so maybe it won't feel like there's too much of a wait. ;)

Large Family Logistics by Kim Brenneman

Daring Greatly by Brene Brown

 Educating the Whole Hearted Child by Clay and Sally Clarkson

Joni and Ken: an untold Love Story Joni Earekson Tada

Choosing Gratitude by Nancy Leigh Demoss

His Needs Her Needs by Willard F Harley jr

What did you Expect? Paul Tripp

Say Goodbye to Survival Mode by Crystal Paine

Explicit Gospel by Matt Chandler

I think that's a pretty good list so far. :) I'm reading Explicit Gospel right now, and I'm really enjoying it. And as soon as the library gets Large Family Logistics I'll be starting in on that one(I need all the help I can get in this area!)

What's everyone else planning on reading? Any books you'd recommend?

(The amazon links are affiliate links. If you buy from my link, I get a small portion. Thanks so much!)


  1. Thanks for the list I just bought one and plan on getting more!

  2. Thank you for this list. I am compiling a list of books that I want to read and will be adding Daring Greatly, Choosing Gratitude, Say Goodbye to Survival Mode and Explicit Gospel to my list!


I love reading your comments, and I also love responding to them!
