I said I’d be back this week with my 2019 reading list, and I’m a woman of my word. Check out the entire list!
It’s going to be a busy year of reading—if I can keep up with it—but hopefully one that’s full of learning and laughter, tears and seeing the world from a different perspective.
Some highlights, at least in my mind:
- Telling the Truth by Frederick Buechner. I like to think of Frederick as a personal friend. So often his words have been like a balm to my soul.
- Peace Like a River by Leif Enger. I’ve been meaning to read it for years after having numerous people rave about it at Andrew Peterson and the Rabbit Room’s Hutchmoot.
- On Reading Well by Karen Swallow Prior. All I can say is that it’s almost as if this book were written for me.
- Remember God by Annie F. Downs. If ever a person needed the message of this book, it is me.
- News of Our Loved Ones by Abigail DeWitt. I had the privilege of hearing the author speak in a panel discussion during the Southern Festival of Books held last fall in Nashville. I’ve been wanting to check out this novel ever since!
- The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton. I’ve read and mostly loved every book Kate Morton has written. I enjoy her style and the mysterious feel to each novel. I have read some reviews of her latest, The Clockmaker’s Daughter, that weren’t quite complimentary, but I’m looking forward to it!
I’ve already finished my first read of the year (Allen Eskens’ The Guise of Another) and will have a review ready for you by next week. Until then, it’s on to my next read, All the Light We Cannot See.
