Top Reads of 2012

I think I read less this year than last, but here are my top five picks. I dare you to read them.

7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess  7 by Jen Hatmaker - about shedding excess. What American doesn’t need to read this?

Anything: The Prayer That Unlocked My God and My Soul  Anything by Jennie Allen – about surrendering to God anything and embracing the beauty that comes with it.

Kisses from Katie: A Story of Relentless Love and RedemptionKisses from Katie by Katie Davis- About the courage to go, alone, to a foreign country and be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Just try reading those top three without having your heart challenged. Seriously. Try it.

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: How I Learned to Live a Better StoryA Millions miles in a Thousand Years by Donal Miller – About taking risk in order to live a great story.

Cold Tangerines: Celebrating the Extraordinary Nature of Everyday LifeCold Tangerines by Shauna Niequest about celebrating everyday life.

These are all non-fiction picks. I did read some fiction including John Grisham and an occasional Nicholas Sparks. With those two you always know exactly what kind of story you are getting. I do have to add that if you are going to see the movie Les Mis, I highly, highly recommend reading the book first. I had to read it somewhere back in my education experience and it is still one of my all time favorite books.

Les Misérables (Signet Classics)Les Miserable by Victor Hugo = Amazing.

 

I can also tell you that I did NOT read the top 3 sellers for 2012. Just an FYI.

What should be on my list for 2013?
