24 Books to Read in 2019

24 Books to Read in 2019 | Making the Most Blog

It looks like I’m a running a little bit behind this year, but, well, better late than never, they say. I’m determined to blog whenever I have the chance this year, so while it may be sporadic, I’ll be happy just to post whatever I can whenever I can. And I hope you enjoy it every time. So without further ado…the post and the list.

If you haven’t been able to determine it yet, I love to read. Several years ago I would have said I don’t have time to read, but now I’ve made the time. Some years I’ve read 40+ books. Other years I’ve read 20+. Since I’m in the full-time working mom world now, I’ve kept my goal the same as last year. I hope to read at least 24 books this year. Some of these are books I meant to read before but didn’t get around to. Anyway, here’s what’s on my list:

  1. Remember God by Annie F. Downs
  2. If You Only Knew by Jamie Ivey
  3. Simple Joys by Candace Payne
  4. It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way by Lysa TerKeurst
  5. Chasing Contentment by Erik Raymond
  6. Love Life Again by Tracie Miles
  7. Called to Create by Jordan Raynor
  8. How Joyful People Think by Jamie Rasmussen
  9. What Customers Crave by Nicholas Webb
  10. Blue Ocean Shift by W. Chan Kim
  11. The Meaning of Marriage by Timothy Keller
  12. A Simplified Life by Emily Ley
  13. Love That Lasts by Jefferson Bethke
  14. Fiercehearted by Holley Gerth
  15. Grace, Not Perfection by Emily Ley
  16. Anxious for Nothing by Max Lucado
  17. Creating Calm in the Center of Crazy by Nicole Johnson
  18. More Than Just Making It by Erin Odom
  19. Untangled by Carey Scott

  2. Jesus Calling: Putting Jesus First by Sarah Young
  3. Jesus Calling: Receiving Christ’s Hope by Sarah Young
  4. Restoration Year by John Eldredge
