I was asked to post my reading list and then what I am currently reading (I just thought I’d throw that in as a bonus), so here goes. This is what I’ve read so far in 2012:
Lit! by Tony Reinke – this was a Crossway book review book and I enjoyed it all. Very strategic and is probably helping with my reading this year. And I even was informed of a book that will be great for my husband as a gift.
Healthy Pregnancy Over 35 by Laura Goetzl- this book was helpful as a started this new journey into motherhood, especially that I’m “old” (in maternal years)
You’ll Lose the Baby Weight by Meehan – I liked this book purely for the sarcastic and humoristic nature of it. Helped me make it through the hardest weeks of the first trimester
Walking in the Spirit by Berding – this was also a Crossway book review book and went through Romans 8. Very helpful to the Christian life, short read, and one I need to remember more of daily as I walk through this life.
A Tailor Made Bride by Karen Witemeyer – this was a free kindle read fiction, so I didn’t lose anything. It was ok.
A Promise to Remember by Cushman – another free kindle fiction read – better than the first.
It Happens Every Spring by Gary Chapman and Catherine Palmer – a fiction book, kindle read, good, had some good application for perseverence in marriage.
The Shunning by Beverly Lewis – the first in a series – very good, quick read.
The Confession by Beverly Lewis – I had to keep reading!
The Reckoning by Beverly Lewis – good, predictable (somewhat) end of the series
Husband-Coached Childbirth by Bradley – helped me understand what might be coming by the end of summer.
Family Meal by Tyler Florence – I borrowed this one but would love to have it if anyone just wants to buy me something. I love reading cookbooks and I love Tyler Florence. Can’t wait to enjoy some of the recipes!
New Mom’s Survival Guide by Wider – this was helpful to know what was coming after the birth, man and to think this process is a joy! 🙂 (hint:sarcasm)
So I guess that makes 13 so far this year and here is what I’m reading now:
Psalms 1-41 by J P Boice (as a help with my quiet time)
What Did You Expect by Tripp – still working through this as its a great marriage book
Love That Lasts by Gary and Betsy Ricucci – E and I are reading this together aloud for car rides and date nights – love it. Very practical. One of my fave marriage books EVER!
Meaning of Marriage by Tim Keller – we were going through this as a small group, but the group had to take a break, so we’ll resume this soon hopefully! It is very thick, but good, Keller writing
Warfield on the Christian Life by Zaspel – this is my latest Crossway book review book and I look forward to reading something outside of the 21st Century!
Memoirs of an Ordinary Pastor by D A Carson – this is a biography on his father, Tom Carson, and I am learning much (as I usually do by Christians who have run the race well)
Loving the Way Jesus Loves by Phil Ryken – I am still working through this Crossway book review from last month. Very hard read (because it is so convicting), but very pastoral as well.
On my kindle:
The Praying Life by Paul Miller – this was a highly recommended book that I hope to finish next week while in Louisville
The Blue Castle by LMM – I look forward to reading this next week as well while I sit in some fun places in my old stomping ground.
There you have it. Besides the Twilight saga and the hunger Games, what else should I be reading?
