2020 READING LIST
Sharing some of the books I’ve read this year
I’ll admit it’s been a slow reading year because of school, but thanks to the lockdown, I’m definitely able to get more of my TBR done. To open, I wasn’t always a big fan of e books or anything of the kind. But of late, I’ve found that most of the books I’m currently reading are e-books. Ironic how we evolve isn’t it?
Let’s get to it.
Books I’ve Read
Children of the Virtue and Vengeance-Toni Adeyemi
This is part two of the Legacy if Orïsha series. The series is around the divided Kingdom of Orïsha and follows our main character Zélie and Amari as they battle to bring magic back to their kingdom and bring peace, but they are met by some surprise opposition
- Family- Karen Kingsbury
This was part four of Karen Kingsburys series surrounding the Baxter Family and it is beautiful. It follows Dayne Mathews as he struggles with figuring out his new faith and balancing his career as an actor in the light of a court case surrounding him and the love of his life Katy Hart. He makes a decision but how will it be recieved?
- Forever- Karen Kingsbury
This final book in the Baxter series should end in a happy ending but a terrible accident happens that rocks the Baxter Family and finally leaves them exposed the the press. Their lives are torn apart as one of them recovers, but hope always prevails, and God always wins.
I love her books for the way each book brings us closer to God through
1938: Hitlers Gamble- Giles Macdonogh
This book is a wonderful account of the months leading up to the war, examining how Hitler handled every challenge and laid out every scheme, surrounded by his Nazi party. It’s amazing and detailed and I love it so far.
- Gay Girl Good Good-Jackie Hill Perry
Jackie Hill Perry comes out as openly being a lesbian, but that changed when she met God.
In Gay Girl, Good God, author Jackie Hill Perry shares her own story, offering practical tools that helped her in the process of finding wholeness. Jackie grew up fatherless and experienced gender confusion. She embraced masculinity and homosexuality with every fiber of her being. She knew that Christians had a lot to say about all of the above. But was she supposed to change herself? How was she supposed to stop loving women, when homosexuality felt more natural to her than heterosexuality ever could?
At age nineteen, Jackie came face-to-face with what it meant to be made new. And not in a church, or through contact with Christians. God broke in and turned her heart toward Him right in her own bedroom in light of His gospel.
What I’m reading
- Faithful Women and Their Extrodinary God- Noel Piper
In this book Noel Piper explores women over the years who trusted God, served Him and lived for him. I’ve been able to learn of some extraordinary women who went ahead to be great against all odds.
