24 in 12: What I’m Reading in 2013

I wanted to share my list of books I plan to read this year. I’ve decided to read 24 books in 12 months… so 2 books per month. I will obviously read more over the summer, but I can also use those months to catch up if I fall terribly behind during student teaching this semester. (Let’s be real, I’ll fall behind with the way my weeks are going right now.)

The books are a strange assortment of Christian living books, literature classics I’ve never read but feel like I should as an English teacher, and contemporary reads suggested by others. I’m excited!!

So here’s the breakdown:

January: Unglued by Lysa TerKeurst & Good to Great by Jim Collins

February: Love Does by Bob Goff & Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

March: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card & Explicit Gospel by Matt Chandler

April: Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden & Unleashed by Perry Noble

May: Who Do You Think You Are? by Mark Driscoll & Open Heart by Elie Wiesel

June: A Million Little Pieces by James Frey & Soul Detox by Craig Groeschel

July: It Starts With Food by Melissa Harting & Girl With a Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larson

August: Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier & Multiply by Francis Chan

September: Water for Elephants by Sara Green & On Writing by Stephen King

October: Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas & Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

November: One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp & The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls

December: East of Eden by John Steinbeck & The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
