Another year past/2015

Hello! Today is the last day of 2015. I hope it was a good year for all of you! And I hope 2016 brings lots of blessings and lessons from our Lord too. :)

I am going to do my yearly post of books I read over the past year…so, here we go! I’m showing them from the latest I read to the first I read back in January of 2015. Each image should bring you to their GoodReads page and my review if applicable. :)

  1. Wow – what a reader you are, Raechel! :-) I am so honored that books 1 & 2 of A Time of Grace made it to your top 10.
    Choose just a few?! Ah! :-D Some of my fiction favorites included Tessa Afshar’s In the Field of Grace, which really brought the story of Ruth and Boaz to life for me without taking too many liberties; Francine Rivers’ A Voice in the Wind, which I’m still reeling from; and A.M. Heath’s In the Shadow of Thy Wings – thought-provoking, enriching, and lovely. For non-fiction, I loved Amy Carmichael’s Gold by Moonlight – so worth getting your hands on a copy! – as well as Apostle: A Life of Paul by John Pollock.

    1. Hehe, thank you! :)
      I know, choosing just a few does seem impossible! But yes, I loved “In the Field of Grace” too – so good. I have yet to read “A Voice in the Wind” but it’s on my shelf! And A.M. Heath’s books are on my TBR pile too! Ooh, I’ll check out that one by Amy Carmichael! Thank you for commenting and sharing, Alicia!! And thank you for writing such excellent books! :)

  2. Wow! Yes, you are amazing avid reader! I used to be, but now writing, and as of late, social media, haven taken priority, and I haven’t found much time to reading. This is a wonderful (free) service you are providing for your fellow Indie authors, and I commend you for it! Thanks for sharing your awesome list! I love Amy Carmichael’s life story, so I’m interested in her book too. Happy New Year, Raechel!

    1. Thanks! I know – there really is so much to occupy ones time with!
      Reading is like my ‘escape’ time – I don’t know what I’d do without it!! :D
      Thank you Lesa – Happy New Year to you too!!
