Books Read in 2017


(post contains affiliate links: see disclosure)

Each year I challenge myself to read 52 books in one year. I like listing them here plus a sentence or two about them.

1. Looking For The Lovely: Collecting Moments That Matter

This book was more about not quitting than anything else.

2. Bread and Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table with Recipes

This book convicted me. It is high time our family started inviting people over for a meal on a regular basis.

3.  Lizzy and Jane

This book made me laugh, cry and think. A winning combination for a work of fiction in my books.

4. Dear Mr. Knightley: A Novel

It took me a while to get into Dear Mr. Knightley. I am not use to the letter format. But in the end I LOVED this book and went on to buy a 3rd title by Katherine Raey (she also worte Lizzy and Jane)

5.Wild and Free: A Hope-Filled Anthem for the Woman Who Feels She is Both Too Much and Never Enough

Being over 40 I am pretty content with who I am and who I am not so I didn’t get a lot out of Wild and Free. However, I think it is a great read for those who are struggling to be 100% who they were made to be.
