If you’re anything like me, you have an ongoing list of books you want to read. I keep an ever-growing list of titles and authors that I want to read on my phone, but these are the ones I most want to read right now. Some of them are new and some of them have been sitting on my shelf for years.
This is one of those classics that I can’t believe I didn’t read growing up. I’ve seen the movie and love the story, so I just need to pick up the book. I even have a pretty copy of it, what am I waiting for?
I have read all of Shauna’s other books and love them, so I feel like I definitely need to read her first book.
This is one of those books I feel like everyone is talking about. It’s about a Nigerian immigrant and her experience coming to America. I’m sure it will open my eyes to the racism that is still so prevalent in our society.
I really enjoyed Olive Kitteridge by the same author and Adam got me this for Christmas several years ago and I keep meaning to start it but it keeps getting bumped. Has anyone else read it?
I’m always interested in a good book about improving my marriage and this book comes highly recommended.
Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand
I feel like this is one of those books everyone read 5 years ago. Did I miss the boat? Is it worth reading now? I have a copy that I got from one of those Little Free Libraries (love those!). It seems like it would be a good beach or plane book.
I’ve read several other books by James Mitchner and they are epic, spanning countries and generations. This one is particularly intriguing because it traces the history of the Jewish people in the Holy Land.
Another book I’ve heard nothing but good things about and that is sitting on my shelf just waiting to be read. I think it will be a quick read, but I’m just much more likely to pick up fiction than a memoir.
I’ve read and enjoyed several other books by Donald Miller and am looking forward to digging into his latest book about letting down your guard and finding true intimacy.
I Capture the Castle
Confession: I started this book about 6 months ago and haven’t been able to get into it. I keep it by my bedside table and pick it up when I have nothing else to read. I feel like it’s one of those books that is required reading for book lovers.
I’d love to know which of these books you’ve read and would recommend and also what’s on your to-read list!
