I'm always glad to read your book list for the year. :) I also read "The Magnolia Story," "She Reads Truth," "The Little Book of Hygge," "A Baxter Family Christmas," the Jennifer Chiaverini books on your list, and "To Be Where You Are." Other books I read this year that I enjoyed include "Capital Gaines" by Chip Gaines, "Driving Miss Norma" by Tim Bauerschmidt/Ramie Liddle, and "A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23" by Phillip Keller. Happy reading in 2018!

Great list of books. I too, have read many of the same titles over 2017. I am now reading Wonder. Different for me since I usually read Christian but believe this will be an informative read.

Have a great day and as always, keep enjoying family.

Great list of books! We have a lot of the same favorite authors. I did not read much last year, but hope to remedy that this year! Have a blessed week!

My list is on a sidebar on my blog
I did not read as much as I usually do and I totally blew off all of my reading goals last year. For some reason I kind of lost interest in reading for the first time in my life. I enjoy seeing what other people read though. Maybe I can find a good book to start the year with.

In 2017 I read 18 books. I am very proud of that, because I am a very slow reader end the 2 children <4 year. This year my goal is at least 1 book a month.
I love to read Tamera Alexander. I read her books over and over again.
Lots of love from Holland.

I appreciate your dlligence in keeping track of your books read each year. It is also so helpful that you publish them with the amazon links. If a title sparks my interest, I click through to read the summary. If I think that I will enjoy it, I add it to a list to request from my library. Not all are available, but enough to keep my book stack towering. I'd guess that you don't buy many books, either. My daughter gave me an Amazon gift card for Christmas, so I plan to order a book that my library system doesn't have.
