This year, I not only plan to read 52 books this year, I plan to be more intentional with what I choose to read. I am going to choose a fiction, historical, biographical and classic to read each month and then after I have read those four, I can read whatever I find that’s available. I will also have book club books to read from a moms group and the online book club on this site.
In January, I read the following six books (reviews to come soon):
- The Truth According to Us by Annie Barrows
- 7 Men and the Secret of their Greatness by Eric Metaxas
- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
- 11-22-63 by Stephen King
- The Real God by Chip Ingram
- 1776 by David McCullough
For February, here is my to-read list:
This is the third book in a series about life in America after an EMP turns the power off. I’m very interested to see how the story wraps up.
Historical: Rush Revere and the Presidency by Rush Limbaugh
My daughters are planning on reading this book and I enjoy reading what they’re reading so we can talk about it. I’ve enjoyed the first four Rush Revere books and am looking forward to this one.
I finished reading 7 Men and the Secret of Their Greatness in January and really enjoyed it, so I’m going to read this one next.
Inspirational: The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp
I want to try and read something inspirational each month and I do like Ann Voskamp’s writing style. She usually makes me think with her writing. This is her newest book, so I’m excited to read it.
I have wanted to read this since visiting the World War I Museum in Kansas City. I didn’t get a chance to start it in January, so I’m planning to read it in February.

Moms book club: Magnolia Wednesdays by Wendy Wax
I don’t know much about this book at all, but the person who chose it for our book club has very good tastes in books, so it should be a good one.
