Book list 2012

Well, isn't that an eye-catching title... doesn't it just make you wanna keep reading?  Well,  maybe when I'm done with this post I will come up with something more exciting!  But stick with me anyway, here is a list of books I want to read this year... some I have started and never finished, some I have read and need to re-read, and some I haven't even picked up. But all are books that I want to read THIS year! and because it is Tuesday, this list will be a "Top Ten"

Top Ten {Tuesday}

1. Grace-Based Parenting  I have a hard copy of this book and a kindle edition. I am mostly reading in the kindle edition right now because it's convenient! I really want to live out God's Grace in my life, so that my kids can see and understand God's Grace in their lives!

2. One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are I have already read through this book once and am starting it for the second time. I am also counting my 1000 gifts again this year, because really they are INFINITE!!

3. 31 Days to Build a Better Spouse This is my main January book. One chapter a day to pray for my husband. check it out on twitter at #31DBBS

4. Calm My Anxious Heart: A Woman's Guide to Finding Contentment  Oh, how I struggle with an anxious heart. I have been so convicted and encouraged by what I have read so far and am looking forward to finishing this book and living calm and contented!

5. Blogger Behave: Make your blog benefit your life, so you can love both!  Bought this ebook on a whim with the hopes of bettering my blog and my life! :)  I got as far as the blog mission statement section and got stuck! I really need to work on the mission statement of my blog!

6. Grace for the Good Girl: Letting Go of the Try-Hard Life This year my One Word is GRACE. I don't own this book yet, but I really, really, really want it! and I so want to live grace this year!

7. Organized Simplicity: The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living  I want to live organized, I want to live simple... I want to live intentional!  The funny thing is, I THINK I own this book, but I can't find it anywhere...

8. Make It Fast, Cook It Slow  I love my crockpot and I love her blog! It's my go to when I am searching for a crockpot recipe!  I would love to own her book... both of them!! :)

9. Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus Once again, this year is all about grace for me. I don't own this book either, but I am hoping to own it by the end of the year... maybe after I finish the other books on grace!

10. The Reluctant Entertainer: Every Woman's Guide to Simple and Gracious Hospitality I have this book, and I've skimmed it some, but this year I want to really read it and start applying what I read!

So there you have it, my list!  What's on your reading list that I should consider??!?!

ps. I played around with Amazon Affiliates, so this post contains affiliate links. If you wanna help feed and clothe my kids, feel free to purchase these books through these links!


  1. I borrowed Reluctant Entertainer and Organized Simplicity from the local library. I own Calm My Anxious Heart if you need to borrow it.

  2. If you like Christian fiction, I'm currently reading Songbird Under a German Moon by Tricia Goyer and One Tuesday Morning by Karen Kingsbury. Of course, I always recommend the Jamie/Leana/Rose series by Liz Curtis Higgs (starts with A Thorn in My Heart). Those are my all time faves. :)

    1. I just read Tricia Goyer's book and I love most of Kingsbury! I will definitely look into Liz Curtis Higgs books! THANKS

  3. The Grace Parenting books are on my list, too. I read Calm My Anxious Heart last summer with some friends. I'm reading Keep a Quiet Heart by E. Elliot right now. Still working on my list for the year. You should consider adding Practical Theology for Women by Wendy Alsup if you haven't read it yet. Read it twice in 2011!

  4. Ooh, Grace-Based Parenting, Organized Simplicity, and Calm My Anxious Heart are on my to-be-read list, as well. Great list!

  5. Julie....Calm my anxious heart was just $5 on CBD the other day!!!

  6. Also... All of those look amazing. I wanna do a list now :)

  7. Visiting via One Word 365 community. "Grace" really is present in your book list. I started reading 1000 gifts over the summer with a friend and have picked it back up recently to finish. What I've gotten through is fantastic, and goes along with your 2012 word as well. I may have to make a note about a couple of your other books for my own "to read" list. Many blessings on all your goals for the year!!
