After each month I’m going to give you some books that I’ve read that month with a short little review for each one. Since I’m a book worm with a busy schedule I try to read 4-5 books a month. During a crazy month (like December) I hardly make it through one book. It all depends on the level of craziness going on in my life. My favorite time to read is in bed at night right before I fall asleep. There’s something about the quiet bedroom and the comfort of a good book to melt the stress of the day away.
Here’s a few quick reviews of the books that I read in November:
- What Happens When Women Say Yes To God by Lysa Terkeurst
This was a really encouraging read. Lysa Terkeurst is one of my favorite Christian author and speaker, so anything she puts out is bound to be good and genuine. I love the way that she tells her own personal stories throughout the book. There is a great study that goes along with this book.
2. The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis
I fell in LOVE with this fiction novel! Fiction isn’t normally this cup of tea but I just loved this book so much. It kept my attention and suspense throughout the whole story. The storyline is so good! I love anything to do with the jazz period and especially anything to do with vintage New York City. Fiona Davis has become one of my favorite fiction writers. I’ve already purchased another one of her books to read called The Address. I’m so excited to jump into that one!
3. Anxious For Nothing by Max Lucado
This was a great inspirational book. I struggle with anxiety and this book gave a lot of great facts about anxiety and gave a good understanding of the word from the Bible’s point of view. The only critique I would give this book is that it ended just a little awkwardly. It felt like there wasn’t much closure to the book. This is still a read that I would recommend to anyone struggling with anxiety.
4. The Difference Maker by Nelson Searcy
This is a really great book that leaves you with some awesome challenges. I recommend this book to any Christian that is struggling to invite people to church or tell their friends and family about their faith. My church did a seminar on this based on this book and it left me with some great information and strategies for sharing Jesus.
