Small Steps for Catholic Moms (Danielle Bean and Elizabeth Foss) - really simple, daily read. Each day is a page long with a prayer, quote/bible verse for reflection, and an activity. You really don't need to be Catholic - it's a great read for any mom. :)
House Rules (Jodi Picoult) - I just got this book from a White Elephant book exchange. I had never heard of it, but it sounds like a good read. Murder mystery type of book - right up my alley!
Kisses from Katie (Katie Davis) - I started this book for our book club well over a year ago, and I never finished it. It's about a young girl moving to Africa and her new life there.
Strange Gods (Elizabeth Scalia) - another book club read not finished. This book was really interesting - it's about making gods out of social media, celebrities, sports, etc. and how that effects you/the world.
Choosing Beauty (Gina Loehr) - a short read, and I've read it before. It's a 30 day challenge on how you see yourself with daily reflections and questions for journaling. I'm thinking about doing this book for Lent this year.
The Seven Levels of Intimacy (Matthew Kelly) - this is one of my favorite books and Kelly is a great author! He's very straight forward and does not sugar coat, which I love. :) The book is about communication - how we let people in, things we discuss, etc. Highly recommend!
Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World (Joanna Weaver) - just started this book this month and it's great so far! It is coinciding with my word of the year (less) so I'm finding it quite helpful. :)
And here is the rest of my list, plus any suggestions from you all!! These are ones that I want to check out from our library - more light reading and books that I've heard are really funny/good.
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling
Dad is Fat by Jim Gaffigan
The Shadow of the Bear by Regina Doman (I read her book, Rapunzel Let Down...I couldn't put it down! I heard this one is even better, so I already have it on hold at the library :)
What books are you reading this year? Any books I need to check out?
