Reading Material

These are my textbooks for the next year. The professor (me) is not very strict about them all getting read, though, so that's nice. These are a collection of books that have been sitting in my room unread for far too long, books I've seen around the house and wanted to read, and a few I have seen a lot of buzz on/looked interesting so I purchased them thanks to gift cards. (Side note: Ever since I found out companies make a ton of money through unused gift cards, I am obsessed with making sure I use every penny.)

The pile consists of, I believe, all Christian non-fiction/Christian books. At first it started out as books about timing and God's will, but then it just became all types. That being said, my game plan for the order of reading them is nonexistent. Once I finally knock out (not literally...) the newest Sarah Dessen book I started last month I will pick whatever book I feel drawn to and start. I also plan on reading the whole Bible...or at least the Old Testament.

The reason I'm sharing all this (aside from the fact that I'm obviously obsessed with sharing): I want recommendations. If you think there's a book I should read that would be beneficial for this time in my life (that sounds so cliché) I would love to hear it!
