What I've Been Reading - November 2014

Posted on November 28, 2014 by Sarah Brown | 0 Comments

I love to read. LOVE.TO.READ. I read lots of books each year (you can check out the books I have read on the blog, or if you’re more visual, see them on Pinterest). November was an exceptionally good month of great books!

Among the Gods by Lynn Austin • What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty • War Brides by Helen Bryan • The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay • Candle in the Darkness by Lynn Austin • The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp • The Happiness of Pursuit by Chris Guillebeau • Less Doing More Living by Ari Meisel • Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker • Enough by Kate Conner • Not By Sight by Jon Bloom • A Place at the Table by Chris Seay • Love Skip Jump by Shelene Bryan • One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp (reread)

2 quick, easy reading books:

What Alice Forgot (not pictured - already loaned it out!): I read this quickly…just couldn’t put it down. Makes you think about who you want to be and how you are living your life.

Sea of Tranquility: One of the BEST books I have read in a while. It will definitely make the list of favorite books in 2014.  Finished it in 48 hours while visiting with the in-laws (that says a lot!) And, when I finished it, I wanted to pick it up and read it again. Great thoughts and ideas on who you are, what you hide, and about hope that can be found in surprising places. 

2 great books, making you want to do something:

Interrupted: I have loved Jen Hatmaker’s other books and excited to pick this one up. Real gut check on what parts of the Bible I am actually living and what parts I am overlooking. 

A Place at the Table: This is to be read over 40 days, while choosing to eat like the poor, so you will think about and remember those in great need. The Scripture verses and short chapters were convicting.

Great series:

Among the Gods (read it on the Kindle, so not pictured): I finished up this last book in Lynn Austin’s God and Kings series.  I don’t read a lot of Christian fiction, but this series was excellent. Had me searching in the Old Testament to find the people re-told throughout her fiction series.  

Most surprising read:

Not By Sight: If I was choosing books by their cover, I wouldn’t have picked this up. But, I loved this book!  It brought many of the gospel stories to light in new ways.  

What have you been reading this month?
