  1. I am honored to have Standing Strong on this list of your favorites!!!!

    I also want to note that your blog has inspired me. For several years now, I’ve enjoyed reading about the books you and your family have read. I’ve found many great books from your recommendations. And I am mighty impressed by how many books you and your family members read.

    NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION: In 2018 I plan to do more reading, keep track of what I’m reading, and write reviews!

    PS. I am hoping to read more from you!

    • Thanks, Theresa! I really like keeping track of what I’ve read and tabs on what the family is reading. It keeps me aware of who is reading what and what they’re loving lately.

      MY resolution is to spend more time WRITING, so hopefully there will be more to read from me too!

  2. Blush! I’m overjoyed to see my recent release, The Other Side of Freedom, included in your list. Like Theresa, I’ve learned about many good books on your blog. I’ve read a number of books in this list of twenty and plan to pick up several more. Thanks!
