10 Books I Want To Read In 2013


'Library Shelves' photo (c) 2005, cybrgrl - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/I’ve got to admit that I texted my friend Herschel for a topic for today’s post.  I just couldn’t think of anything to write.  This is just one of the several that he sent me about 5 seconds after the text.  It’s amazing when my mind isn’t working the way I want it to that my friends can take care of me.  Love that about my friends.  But anyway, here are 10 books I want to read this year:

1.  Divergent by Veronica Roth.  A few of my friends have told me that if I liked the Hunger Games Trilogy, then I would like this one.  I’ve got this already downloaded on my Audible account to listen to at work, but just haven’t done it yet.  Hopefully I’ll be able to dig into it very soon.

2.  The Catalyst Leader by Brad Lomenick.  Brad is one of the guys who heads up the Catalyst Conference that I have gone to the last couple years.  As much as I love the conference, I’ve got to give this one a go.  It doesn’t come out until April, though.  I’ll have to wait a little while unfortunately.

3.  Jon Acuff’s new book called Start., I believe.  He’s just one of my favorites.

4.  Unstoppable by Nick Vujicic.  Born with no arms and no legs, and he’s living a pretty incredible life.

5.  7:  An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker.  I’ve had this one on my Kindle for a while.  I have a feeling it will be one that will require me to make some changes that I won’t really want to, so I keep putting it off.  This year is my year…

6.  A Year of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Held Evans.  I’ve heard fantastic reviews and can’t wait to dig in!

7.  Truth-Stained Lies by Terri Blackstock.  One of my all-time favorite authors.  Just writes a good story.  Usually of the murder/mystery genre, so I don’t recommend them if you don’t like that, but otherwise, I’d recommend every one of her books.

8.  Jesus Is by Judah Smith.  One of the best speakers I’ve heard.  Just fantastic.

9.  The Hobbit.  I need to start the Lord of the Rings series with this one.  Just a series I want to read during my lifetime, so I’m planning on starting this year.

10.  Eyes of Lightening by Erin Keyser Horn.  Not normally my style of book, I don’t think, but this girl is from my local area, and I plan on reading it to support my local people.  And it’s getting pretty good reviews from the reviews I’ve read online.

So, yeah.  There are 10 of the books that I would like to read.

You guys have any sort of recommendations for me?
