I love to read! How about you? But with three young children and plenty of things going on in my life, I sometimes struggle to find the time to do it! I thought a good motivator would be to choose one book to read each month. And if I get to more than one each month, great! 

I’ll be posting a review on each “book of the month” once I’ve read it. Some of these books are on my bookshelf, others in my Kindle reader and the rest I’ve gotten through Paperback Swap.

Here’s the list:

January – I realize I’m posting this a bit late, but in January I read Debt-Proof Living by Mary Hunt. It has some great tips on frugality and getting out of debt. It made me think about money in a different way than other frugal living books and the advice is still relevant, even 13 years after the book was written! 

February –  The Good Wife’s Guide by Darlene Schacht (Darlene graciously provided this eBook to me for a review, stay tuned!)
*Extra read for this month: Tell Your Time by Amy Lynn Andrews 
March Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider (you can still download this to your Kindle for free if you have a Amazon Prime membership)
April One Bite at a Time by Tsh Oxenreider
May The Mission of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson
June The Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins – Yup, this is actually three books but I’m intrigued by this series because I’ve been hearing so much about it. Yet I’m not sure what to expect. If anyone has read it, I’d love to know if it’s worth the time.
August Love & Respect by Emerson Eggerichs
September Money, Possessions and Eternity by Randy Alcorn
October Don’t Make Me Come Up There! by Kristen Welch
November A Measure of Mercy by Lauraine Snelling – This book is based in my home state, so I’m excited to read this book and the others in the series, even if they came out awhile ago.

December Truth in the Tinsel by Amanda White

Any must-read book suggestions? I’d love to hear them!

4 Comments on 12 Books I’m Reading in 2012

  1. I love “Tell Your Time” by Amy Andrews (and love her blog too!)

    You were wise to put al of the “Hunger Games” series into one month. I had heard about it from younger siblings-in-law for years, but thought it sounded dreadful. Kids killing each other? After reading several reviews (both good and scathing) I finally started the first book. After the first few pages, I was hooked. No, it’s not from a distinctively Christian perspective, but I think it raises such important questions for us.

    I think I might join you. Last month I read “Mommy Diagnostics” and started “Food: Your Miracle Medicine.” I’d like to finish that this month and reread “Tel Your TIme.”

    • Thanks for the review on the Hunger Games series. That’s what I thought when I first heard about it–dreadful. But I’m really looking forward to reading them and I might even start up early :)

    • I’m so glad you’re enjoying the book. This was the one book I actually had to pay for, so it sounds like it’s worth it!
