Reading Challenge Update


Here is this month’s update on my progress with the 2016 Reading Challenge. You’ll notice that when I find an author I enjoy, I tend to read several of their books before moving on to someone else.

A book with a theological viewpoint you disagree with: Love’s Pursuit by Siri Mitchell

A book about abortion: Unplanned by Alana Terry (Ebook currently FREE! Follow the link.)

A book about magic: Harry Potter, Narnia, and The Lord of the Rings: What You Need to Know About Fantasy Books and Movies by Richard Abanes

A book about psychology: By Reason of Insanity by Randy Singer

A book about the natural world: Like a Flower in Bloom by Siri Mitchell

A book about ancient history: Sarai by Jill Eileen Smith (Ebook currently FREE! Follow the link.)

A book written in the 20th century: Hometown Tales by Philip Gulley

A Christian novel: The Bride Blunder by Kelly Eileen Hake

A historical novel: Love Comes Calling by Siri Mitchell


And then, because I can’t seem to limit myself to the defined categories, here are additional books I’ve read recently that fit categories I’ve already completed:

Another book about psychology: Paralyzed by Alana Terry (sequel to Unplanned, listed above)

Another mystery/detective novel: Misery Loves Company by Rene Gutteridge

A legal thriller (which is not actually a category on the challenge, but it should be!): Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales by Randy Singer

Another memoir: I Love You, Miss Huddleston and Other Inappropriate Longings of My Indiana Childhood by Philip Gulley

Another book about World War II: Home Front Girl: A Diary of Love, Literature, and Growing Up in Wartime America by Joan Wehlen Morrison

A book trilogy I’ve read before: The Hunger Games / Catching Fire / Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
