It's that time again!! Time for what, you ask?? Time for me to give you my book recommendations for 2013 of course!! :) I read a LOT of books this past year, and I read a lot of GOOD books!! Looking back over my list, the Matched Series and the Divergent series stands out. (If you haven't read Divergent, read it!! The movie comes out in March 2014 and you know you have to read the book first!!) I REALLY liked Divergent, and Blu did too! But if I can only choose ONE...then I would have to go with....(*insert drum roll*) And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini.
I loved The Kite Runner, and this book was even better. A sign of an outstanding novel to me is that I could read it again tomorrow. So read it and let me know if you love it!
And of course, I can't leave you without a nonfiction recommendation! Every other year, I read through the Bible. This past year, Blu & I read through it together chronologically. We read this one:
Most days we read separately, some days we read together (in the car with me reading out loud), but we always discussed what we were reading. We loved it! If you haven't read through the Bible, I HIGHLY recommend it!!!
I read tons of non fiction biographies this year, but my favorite was probably Elizabeth Smart's story. It was amazing, and I think you'll love it too.
Did you hear? I was also busy in 2013 writing a book of my own!
A young boy is abandoned in a maize field in the heart of Southern Africa. He experiences horrors in an orphanage and later on the streets, filled with anger at a God that he's not even sure exists. A childless African pastor with a heart for the lost tries to break down the walls this orphan has so carefully constructed around his heart. A story of loss, hope, and above all, Love.
