Books!

I love to read! I love how you can be transported into another time, place, or even a different reality. You can also gain knowledge about yourself through reading, which thoroughly amuses me for some reason. Anyway, I decided that I needed to keep a running list of books I want to read, and what better place to keep that than here? Some are for entertainment, some are for personal growth... some I'm not sure how I've made it to almost 30 years of age without reading it (please don't judge me too harshly). Without further ado, here is my reading list (in alphabetical order by author, of course). 

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott – Amy will probably come revoke my Lit Lovers Card as soon as she sees this, but somehow I’ve never read Little Women. I’ve never even seen the movie all the way through. Eek!
Everything Jane Austen wrote – Now, to my credit I have read Pride and Prejudice, but I am lacking in the rest of her novels. I even owned them all at one point (I’m still not positive where they all went….)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte – I don’t know how I made it through high school….
Daring Greatly by Brene Brown – I had the pleasure of hearing her speak at a leadership conference a few months ago. I’ve been wanted to read this book ever since.
The Runaway Princess by Hester Browne – Ms. Browne is one of my favorite contemporary authors. I adored to Little Lady Agency novels, as well as Finishing Touches and Swept Off Her Feet. I was excited to see she has new titles out.
Balancing It All by Candace Cameron Bure – I really enjoyed Reshaping It All, so I’m looking forward to this one as well.
Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close
Dante’s Inferno – This is one of those that falls into the “How have I not read that” category. I know I own it both in paperback and as an ebook, so I should probably go ahead and read it. 
The Maze Runner by James Dasner
Crazy Busy by Kevin Deyoung
Bossypants by Tina Fey
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green – I have heard wonderful things about this book. I also know I need to carry a box of tissues as I read it.
Winter’s Tale by Mark Helprin – It’s going to be a movie, and the trailers look interesting.
A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby – I’m not positive about this one, but it looks like it has potential.
Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman
Women Living Well by Courtney Joseph
Galatians for You by Timothy Keller
The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness by Timothy Keller
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle – Again, how did I make it through school?
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis
The Giver by Lois Lowry - Read Jan 15, 2013
Cinder by Melissa Meyer – I love a good twist on a fairy tale and have been meaning to read this for a while.
Paradise Lost by John Milton
Breaking Free by Beth Moore
A Heart Like His by Beth Moore
When Godly People Do Ungodly Things by Beth Moore
The Hundred Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais
Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan – I read Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and then read the Lost Hero. Both sucked me in so I’d like to finish the series. Luckily the final book in this series comes out this fall.
Allegiant by Veronica Roth – I flew through Divergent and limped through Insurgent (I had trouble getting into it), and I’d really like to finish out the series.
Wild by Cheryl Strayed
A Confident Heart by Renee Swope
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien – I’m pretty sure I’ve started this one about 27,000 times, but I don’t remember anything about it except a vague description of the Shire.
Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien – I might as well read them all.
This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper
What On Earth Am I Here For? by Rick Warren
Let Hope In by Pete Wilson – A friend of mine helped with the PR for this book and told me it was great. I like his other books, so we shall see!
