Maybe my slowest reading month of the year.  I read a pathetic FIVE books (versus my typical 8 or

more).  However, I did have a very busy month, so I guess that’s part of the holiday season with a thriving family!  HERE is the list of what I read this month (along with ALL of the books I read in 2015).  I actually ended up reading 115 books this year, so really I shouldn’t be whining.

On to my favorites for the month . . .


What a beautiful book.  Although she is from my town, and I know several people who knew her, I’ve never met Kara Tippetts myself.  That didn’t stop me from falling in love with her writing.  In the midst of dying, Kara focused on living and loving well.  So inspirational.  My rating 4.5 out of 5.

Of course I loved Jen Hatmaker‘s latest book – her writing is funny, honest and thought-provoking.  This book was a joy to read.  I actually took pictures of some of the “Thank you’s” and sent them to a few friends because they cracked me up so much!  My rating 4 out of 5.


What a fun book to read!  I loved the twists and turns – and I actually didn’t figure them all out ahead of time (which is always a thrill).  The book goes back and forth between the past and present, slowly disclosing an unsolved mystery.  I enjoyed how the different players perspectives each put a unique spin on the original situation – and that none of them knew the “real” truth until the end.  My rating 4 out of 5.

What were your favorite books from 2015?  Although I have a huge hold list at the library, I’m always looking for more terrific books to read.  Right now I’m in the midst of Rising Strong and This Is What Happy Looks Like, both of which I’m loving (for very different reasons!).
