This year, I not only plan to read at least 52 books, I plan to be more intentional with what I choose to read. I usually just grab a book from my to-read pile or start reading what is available from my hold list on Overdrive. Instead, I am going to choose a fiction, historical, biographical, inspirational and classic to read each month and then after I have read those five, 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. Oh, and there are the advanced copies I receive to review. Lots of reading going on here!
In February, I read the following 10 books (reviews to come soon):
- Raising an Original by Julie Lyles Carr
- The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore
- The Final Day by William R. Forstchen
- Soprano Trouble by Victoria Kimble
- 7 Women and the Secret to Their Greatness by Eric Metaxas
- Magnolia Wednesdays by Wendy Wax
- All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque
- The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp
- Rush Revere and the Presidency by Rush Limbaugh
- What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
For March, here is my to-read list:
This is a young adult series by my favorite author. One of my daughter’s has started reading the series and I’d like to read it with her.
Historical: Valkyrie by Philipp Fresher van Boeselager
This book has been in my stack of to-read nightstand books for a while. I bought it after the Valkyrie movie came out. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but probably will after I read this book.
Biographical: Fierce Convictions by Karen Swallow Prior
This is a biography of Hannah More and was recommended by Eric Metaxas in the book 7 Women and the Secret to Their Greatness. I found the Kindle version on sale.
Inspirational: Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist
I am trying to use my phone less during Lent and be more present with my family, so I think this book will be a big help. I’ve heard great things about it. I also have a study guide I’m going to use while I read it to get the most from the book.
Classic: Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis
I am reading through the Narnia series with my children. We have read The Magician’s Nephew and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

Moms book club: All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood
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.
