As this year draws to a close, I wished I had more time to write. Between having a few small jobs and other commitments, finding time to write just proved to be very difficult this year. However, one of the things I find write about more this year is books. I have essential become primarily a book blogger. It’s something that became bigger than I realized, and something I did not initially imagine myself doing when I started blogging. My first year of this blog (2015), I reviewed only two books, and they were books I reviewed because of my involvement in their book teams. This year, I have reviewed over a dozen books, only two of which were because of book teams. I have found so much joy in getting to summarize such great books so that I recommend them to others.
When it comes to reviewing books, I have three ways a review comes about: 1) I write a review of a book I know so well, I don’t have to reread it. 2) I remember some of a book, but I choose to reread it in order to properly review it. 3) I heard great things about a book I’ve not have the chance to read and I write my review just after I finish it for the first time. This post will give you the list of the best books from this third category that I’ve reviewed over the course of this year. I enjoyed all of these books immensely, so it was really hard to rank them. But in the end, I went the messages that made of the greatest impact on my life over the last year. Here it goes:
There you have it. I have many other books, both I haven’t read before and books I have read previously, that I look forward to reviewing over the next year. Many next year I can get 2 dozen books! Anyway, if any of you have a favorite among this list, or if you read some great books this year, I’ve love to hear about it in the comments. I hope that you all have a Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!
This blog is now designated for my reviews of primarily Christian books, but also some movies and musicals. It will feature the work I do to help launch and promote the works of Christian authors I believe in their message. This will also be the place where I will update and promote the major of the projects of Princess Worth Dying For Ministries or my personal life.
The name is derived from one of my favorite books, Through the Eyes of a Lion by Levi Lusko. Through my reviews, I hope to give Christians the tools they need to look at the world "through the eyes of a lion" so they can find the courage to "run toward the roar".
