Want-to-Read List

Every now and then we talk books here on the blog, and no better time to do it than while many of us are thinking about what we’d like to read this summer. So instead of shouting out our favorite latest read, let’s talk about what’s on our want-to-read list right now.

I’ll go first — as usual :) Here are the books I’d love to read as soon as I can get my hands on them. (Lucky for me, I snagged #4 for half-price at Mardel in Tulsa yesterday!)

Want-to-Read List:

1. Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
2. Broken Wings by Carla Stewart
3. Lady in Waiting by Susan Meissner
4. One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp
5. Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas
6. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
7. Writing Articles from the Heart by Marjorie Holmes

Some of these come highly recommended from fellow readers or writers and others are on the list because I loved a previous book by that particular author. Of course, I have a much longer list tucked away in my desk, but these are front and center on my radar right now. Until I can catch them on sale or find them at the library, though, I’ll settle for reading some of the freebies on my Kindle or pick up some other titles at the library.

While we immerse ourselves in our next great read, let’s remember to immerse ourselves in the Word of God this summer, too. I’m so grateful we live in a nation where we can always get our hands on a copy of His Word. May we never take that for granted.

Now it’s your turn. What’s on your want-to-read list?

“May he give you the desire of your heart…” Psalm 20:4a

*p.s. I have a feeling I’ll be adding to my list as I read your answers! :)


  1. Just flew through The Glass Castle last week and it was fantastic! Loved the autobiography Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen and also just finished Farm City by Novella Carpenter. It was truly fascinating. There’s nothing like a well written autobiography to hold my attention.

  2. I just finished The 12th Imam by Joel Rosenberg. Next on my list is Billy Graham’s Storm Warning.

  3. Just finished
    Ann Voskamps book….Awesome…Happy Sunday
