The other day, my friend asked me what kind of books I like to read.
I told her I didn’t really read novels, but that I wasn’t sure how to classify my literary taste. That question got me to thinkin’ and later that day I started making a list in my head of the books I’ve read in the past seven years or so. I discovered that I do in fact have a literary taste. God and relationships. Made sense because I guess you could say that those are the two most important things to me. I read books to learn and I watch TV for entertainment. And I guess you could say that in each new and different stage of life I’ve felt the need for as much godly influence I could get!
So, I wanted to share my reading list because if you’re anything like me, you’d prefer to read a book that someone recommends versus just picking up one randomly. There’s a few more that I’ve read that aren’t included because I only wanted to share my favorites about God and relationships.
