Three Books

Reading is something I absolutely love--there are few things in this world better than cuddling up next to a candle (or fireplace!) with a cozy blanket, cup of tea, relaxing music and a good, paper book. I've always loved reading--I remember many a night growing up reading for 3 or 4 hours on end. The joy of experiencing a great story is one of the highlights of life.

Over the holidays, I'm hoping to get back into reading a bit more. As I've gotten older I've developed a bit of Starteritis--starting things, but not always finishing them, particularly when it comes to books. Here are three books that I've started that I'd like to finish reading:

1. The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John C. Maxwell
I started this book in January, was so challenged by the first few pages that I stopped, digested that, and then got so full in life that I forgot about it. Time to pick it back up and sow into growing myself, so I can be a better leader, friend, and mentor!
2. Insurgent by Veronica Roth
I love Divergent--literally read it in a day or two. It had the things about Hunger Games that I loved, but in a world created around valuing good morals, which was intriguing and so well done! I listened to Divergent as an audio book, and started reading Insurgent online, but I'm really not into reading books on screens...I'd love to get a paper version of this series, or at least get the second one on Audible. 
3. One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp
I've been inspired by Ann Voskamp's blog so many times. She is such an encouragement, and the concept of thanksgiving in this book changed her life. I want to learn it and apply it to mine...but I need to finish the book!

I'm not sure I'll get to it by the end of the year, but those are three books I want to finish soon! What book(s) are you reading?
