My books to read in 2015 - first of all, I love how this rhymes...I'm such a nerd! I love to read. I'm reading 5-6 books right now. Don't be impressed. I finish one about every month and then take on another so I'm always 30 pages into 5 or 6 books. I love a reading a variety of topics: professional development, raising children, fiction, non-fiction, exercise/fitness, etc.
Here's my to-read list for 2015 (btw, I keep track of them with an app called Good Reads. It's great as I always forget what I want to read next)
1. The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy - professional development book on getting success in life and in your business
2. Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed- heard this non-fiction book was great.
3. Forks Over Knives: The Plant-Based Way to Health by Gene Stone- interested in all things health!
4. Derrick Storm novels by Richard Castle - We love the show Castle. It's sort of an obsession. These books are based on the show's main character being a novelist and the books he writes.
5. Any James Patterson - he is one of my favorite fiction suspense writers. His books are quick, easy reads
6. Death by Food Pyramid by Denise Minger - All about sketchy politics and what the government tells us to eat!
7. Balancing It All by Candace Cameron Bure - I loved her other book on exercise and health and have been on a wait list with our library for awhile for this one.
8. Manna for Moms: God's Provision for Your Hair-Raising, Miracle-Filled Mothering Adventure by Megan Breedlove - a book for moms who struggle to find time to spend with God amidst all their other duties
9. Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal by Eric Schlosser - this title pretty much says it all
10. The Bible - this should really be #1. I don't want to read the Bible app. I don't want a devotional. I want to open the pages of my huge, clunky decade old Bible with high-lighted margins and torn pages. I want to go back to my 1st love and remember that all things come from God. There is so much wisdom to gain and a relationship to tend to.
Those are my books for 2015. Got any you can recommend?
**two other write-ins that I found I still need to read: Start by Jon Acuff and Smart Money Smart Kids: Raising the Next Generation to Win with Money by Dave Ramsey
