I love hearing what other people are reading. And I love reading. Every once in a while, I post a summary of books I’m currently reading, and books on my wishlist.

 

book 3

Here’s my list from the beginning of summer this year.

Now that we’re transitioning into fall, I figured it’s time for an update:

 

Books on my Wishlist:

For the Love, by Jen Hatmaker

I know, I know … everyone is reading this book. But if it’s as good as everybody says it is, then why not, hey?

Wild in the Hollow, by Amber Haines

I’ve heard that the writing in this book is exquisite. Looking forward to appreciating the beauty of well-crafted art.

All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr

This novel won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for fiction and is said to be both moving and memorable.

Simply Tuesday, by Emily Freeman

All of the quotes and snippets I’ve read from this new release are such great reminders and have put things into proper perspective. I’m sure it won’t disappoint.

The Bronte Plot, by Katherine Reay

I’m really excited about the upcoming release of this latest novel by Katherine Reay. I adored her book, Dear Mr. Knightley and have heard great things about Lizzy and Jane as well.

Reviving the Black Church, by Thabiti Anyabwile

This one just released from Thabiti Anyabwile, and the title alone has me intrigued. Thabiti is a thoughtful man of God, and I look forward to reading his reflections in this volume.

Every Little Thing, by Deidra Riggs

I just received my review copy of this debut book by Deidra Riggs, and I couldn’t be happier. Deidra is an important voice in a variety of circles, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to read her wisdom as her ministry expands into book form.

What I’m reading now:

Girl Meets Change, by Kristen Strong

This new release is one of the reasons I love reviewing books for publishers. Girl Meets Change is for anyone who has ever experienced change in their life — which means it’s for everyone. Kristen shares how it’s possible to thrive through change, not just put up with it.

Making It Home, by Emily Wierenga

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Emily Wierenga’s writing voice carries me. That’s the only way I can describe it. I started reading a free download of this book from NetGalley, then was thrilled to win a paperback version in a blog giveaway. Making It Home is the sequel to Emily’s memoir, Atlas Girl — but as far as I can tell, it can also be read as a stand alone book.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

This was my second time attempting to read this book, recommended and lent to me by my sister after I made her read Dear Mr. Knightley. The first time, I read a few pages and just couldn’t quite get into it. Then I got sick one Sunday, was laying in bed without enough energy to sit up, and ended up reading half of this book in one afternoon. Once I got into it, I’ve discovered it to be delightfully engaging.

 

That’s it! Now I just need a LOT of rainy days and/or uninterrupted nights.

What are *you* reading? What’s on your wishlist?

  1. I just received my review copy of Rigg’s book as well. I’m also reading Fervent by Priscilla Shirer and Girl Meets Change. Simply Tuesday is on my to-read list because everyone is raving about it. So many good books to read this fall!

  2. Great list! Simply Tuesday is just the best! You will love it! Wild in the Hollow and For the Love are also on my to-read list. I’ll have to check out those novels. I’ll need something to get me through the many hours of nursing that are coming my way once this baby arrives after Thanksgiving. Thanks for the recommendations!

  3. Oh my word. Oh my word. Oh my word! I recommend The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society to avid readers whenever I can. It is so unique! I laughed out loud and cried ugly tears. Enjoy every page. Any other good fictions you’d recommend?

  4. Kate, I am currently reading “Wild in the Hollow.” “For the Love” is up next; then “Accidental Saints” by Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber (I absolutely loved her book “Pastrix.”) And then there are all the wonderful books you mentioned in this post that I want to read too. I also had the same experience with the Guernsey Potato book. Slow start but once I got into it. I enjoyed it!

  5. There are several on your lists which I have also read & now I found some new ones to add to my list. Hoping to also read Wild in the Hollow and Every Little Thing. I have been hearing such good things about both.
