Loves :: The Best Books of All Time
It's been two years since I last posted about books. But what can I say -- I've been busy. We've all been busy. And we don't get to read often enough, am I right? (I'm assuming that we all enjoy reading. If not, I'm not sure why you're reading this blog right now. Weirdo.) Fortunately, I've become better at managing my schedule, and I've been setting aside time for personal projects and hobbies more and more often.
I've done a lot of reading in my life, but of course I don't have the time or space to share every single book I've read. However, I would like to reveal my favorite books (the best of all time, in my opinion) along with ones I'm working on now (I like to read a lot of books at once and take forever to finish them) and ones I haven't started yet (but are waiting to be devoured). Are any of your favorites on this list? Which ones did I miss? Agree or disagree? Feel free to tweet me!
Old favorites: The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, Mr. Maybe by Jane Green, Good Things by Mia King, You're Not That Into Him Either by Ian Kerner, Life Lessons by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler, Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge, anything by Shauna Niequist (visit her lovely blog here), the Jessica Darling books by Megan McCafferty, anything by Max Lucado, Vintage LA by Jennifer Brandt Taylor.
Currently reading: Jesus Calling by Sarah Young (my daily devotional), Beach Girls by Luanne Rice, the Bible (needed for aforementioned devotional), a collection of stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald (I adored The Great Gatsby before it was cool), Cocktails for Three by Madeleine Wickham, Boundaries by Henry Cloud and John Townsend, Exceeding Customer Expectations by Kirk Kazanjian, Cracking the Boys' Club Code by Michael Johnson, The Nine Rooms of Happiness by Lucy Danziger and Catherine Birndorf.
Up next: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (I've yet to see the movie also), The Confident Woman by Joyce Meyer, Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert (haven't seen this movie either but the book is usually better anyway), For All the Wrong Reasons by Louise Bagshawe, Driving Loyalty by Kirk Kazanjian.
