Julie and Julia–Julie Powell
I really enjoyed this book. But I would say that you definitely have to have an interest in cooking to make it through this book. It is full of details of all the recipes and techniques that Julie used to work through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking. As a whole I really enjoyed the book.
Me, Myself and Bob–Phil Vischer
I seriously loved this book. It was funny, sad, and inspiring rolled all up into one. Vischer tells a great story about he got his dream and also lost it and teaches us some very valuable lessons. I highly recommend this to everyone. Especially those of you who love VeggieTales.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower–Stephen Chbosky
I had this book on my “to-read” list for a while, but I was sadly disappointed. I enjoyed the writing style, reading through letters, and it read through quickly, but I did not find myself entertained. I found myself just trying to get through it.
This book was pretty good. I enjoyed the interesting facts about cadavers, but there was a lot of extra details that made the book slow getting through. It is strange that a book about such an unsettlin topic could be so entertaining.
Tuesdays with Morrie–Mitch Albom
This book was not what I expected it to be. It was very quick read and an interesting story, but I do not think I would read it again.
The Glass Castle–Jeannette Walls
I absolutely loved this book. This is definitely a must read. It was told so well and I couldn’t put it down.
What Happens When Women Say Yes to God–Lysa TerKeurst
I really loved this book and it was a great Bible Study for me to go through. I highly recommend it for any of you ladies out there!
I’m More than the Pastor’s Wife–Lorna Dobson
I really enjoyed this book and it was super helpful for me. If any of you are pastor’s wives, or future wives of pastors like me, I highly encourage you to recommend this book!
Anna Karenina–Leo Tolstoy
I did not like this book at all. If it had not been one of my goals for this year I would have quit a long long time ago.
The Host–Stephenie Meyer
I read this book once before, but picked it up since the trailers for the movie looked so good. I actually liked it a lot more the second time around.
For Parents Only–Shaunti Feldhahn
I love this author, and so I read this book. But obviously it didn’t apply to me, so I didn’t enjoy it all that much. But it was interesting.
All for Jesus–Franklin Graham
I used this as a devotional, but honestly I didn’t get that much out of it.
The Cure–John Lynch
This book was an allegory or living for God. It was interesting. You’re supposed to work through a workbook while you read this, which I did not have, so I don’t think I got as much out of it.
For Women Only: In the Workplace–Shaunti Feldhahn
This book was okay, but since I have read all of her other books I didn’t really feel like I had learned anything.
