December TBR

Whoa… The past three weeks has been crazy!

047

These twin girls joined the family! Ashlynn and Avonlea, I’m so in love with my honorary nieces ❤

And I also scored a job which has been keeping me running, but today is my day off which is letting me catch up on so much blogging. Thanks goodness, I’ve missed my book-blogging family!

I have a rather ambitious reading list this month because I just want to read all the books, we’ll how much I actually finish though.

The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket

The first book in the Series of Unfortunate Events. I read the first three books in elementary school, but it has been so long and Netflix is coming about with a TV series in January! I need to catch up.

The Reptile Room by Lemony Snicket

The second book in the Series of Unfortunate Events. See reason above.

An Untamed Land by Lauraine Snelling

This series has 20+ books in it and I have read all of them except for the last two. I have liked this series for a long time, so I’m picking it up again. If I’m honest, I’m probably not going to read it this month lol.

American Girls by Alison Umminger

I have no idea what this book is about, the cover doesn’t seem my style, but they had it as my library so why not lol.

An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

I have only heard great things about A Torch Against the Night, which is the second book in the series. I want to read it sooo badly so it’s time I pick up the first book. Hopefully it doesn’t wreck me too much. *Fingers Crossed*

Keep a Quiet Heart by Elisabeth Elliot

This is a collection of articles from Elisabeth Elliot’s newsletter, mostly about learning about to know God. My heart has been pretty strained lately. Any help to have my heart quieted and more rooted in Christ is welcome.

What books are you wanting to read this month?

Until Next Time,

My Book Collection 2016

Hey look! My desk where I do all my creating!

Yay for filler posts! I have been in such a reading slump, I still haven’t finished Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Isn’t that terrible?! I swear that I’m that reader who either reads a book in four hours, or doesn’t read for four months. It’s so bad.

So I am giving myself some extra time by writing this post. I’ve done a lot of moving in the past year and a half. I moved to New York City for a year, then to my mom’s house, and as of this past Sunday, I am now living at my dad’s house.Phew! It’s been crazy. I have had to pack and ship boxes three times. THREE TIMES. By the second time you pack everything up you start wondering if your stuff is really worth it, just imagine the third time.

I got rid of/donated a lot of books during the different moving sessions, and these are the books that have made it to their (for now) final destination. These lucky ducks.

Let’s start with the left side of my computer:

  • Nimona by Noella Stevenson
  • Recovering Biblical Manhood & Womenhood by Piper & Grudem
  • Uprooting Anger by Robert D. Jones
  • It’s Not What You Think by Jefferson Bethke
  • Passion and Purity by Elisabeth Elliot
  • Living The Cross Centered Life by C.J. Mahaney
  • When People Are Big and God is Small by Edward T. Welch
  • If I Stay by Gayle Forman
  • The Carousel Painter by Judith Miller
  • Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
  • Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
  • Keep a Quiet Heart by Elisabeth Elliot
  • Desiring God by John Piper
  • Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
  • Romeo And/Or Juliet by Ryan North

Woah, that was more than I thought lol. Pardon me for not linking the titles to Amazon. Not for the right side!

This side is tiny haha.

  • On Our Knees by Susan J. Heck
  • The Swiss Family Robinson by John Wyss
  • Let Me Be A Woman by Elisabeth Elliot
  • The Giver by Lois Lowery

Something else I just realized? Only 9/19 are fiction lol even though I am more of a fiction girl than non-fiction.

So for one reason or another, these are books that are special enough to me to keep through multiple states.

What are some books that go wherever you go?

Until Next Time
