I didn't read anywhere near as much as I would have liked to in 2012, but I still managed to finish about 10 books last year. This year though, I've turned to my constantly growing "To Read" list to make a reading plan for 2013. I know I won't get through this entire list, but at least I'm not going to run out of things to read. :)
|A Grown-Up Kind Of Pretty|
|Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore|
|The Secret Keeper|
|The Hiding Place|
|The Light Between Oceans|
|The Complete Anne of Green Gables|
|The Pioneer Woman Cooks|
|A Life That Says Welcome|
|French Kids Eat Everything|
|The Homemade Pantry|
While I didn't actually read this book cover to cover, I did flip through it and concluded that it would indeed be a great addition to my cookbook collection. I was particularly intrigued by the idea of making my own yogurt. There were recipes in this book for things I would have never even thought to make at home before seeing them in this book. I can't properly rate this book as I haven't actually made anything from it, but I can definitely say it's worth checking out.
|The Creative Family|
|How Do You Tuck In A Superhero?|
|15 Minutes Outside|
|Give Them Grace|
|Families Where Grace Is In Place|
|Let. It. Go.|
|Jump Off The Hormone Swing|
|Made To Crave|
|Jesus: 90 Days With The One And Only|
A group of ladies from my church all did this study together starting in January. I had done other studies by Beth Moore previously and really loved her insight into the scriptures. I enjoyed this Bible study, but was kind of glad when it was done. I thought it began to get a little repetitive by the end of the 90 days. I also felt that after about 60 days I was ready to move onto a different writing style and perspective. I will more than likely use this book again in the future, but in small doses, putting it down and moving onto something else when I want to. 3 out of 5 stars.
I have so many more than this that I'd like to read eventually, as well as a long list of selections to read aloud to the kids, but that could fill an entire post by itself. So, what am I missing? I'm always looking for good suggestions, so if you have a favorite book that you don't see on this list, leave me a comment and I might add it to next years list. Also, I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to reading that you can follow here.
