Best of 2019

According to my Goodreads account, I read 84 books this year. These are my top reads out of those books. Not all of these were published this year. Coming in at #10 is...

10. Where the Fire Falls by Karen Barnett

The cover and setting were enough to make me want to read this book! This book is full of adventure and the descriptive writing whisks you away on a captivating journey. Karen Barnett is one of those writers who inspires and motivates with her storytelling.

9. The 40-Day Sugar Fast by Wendy Speake

This is not your normal everyday weight loss book. It's so much more. Wendy Speake teaches her readers to stop replacing Jesus with bad habits and addictions and rely on Him fully in all circumstances. (A community wide sugar fast with Wendy starts on January 6, 2020! Sign up now at

8. Finding Lady Enderly by Joanna Davidson Politano

I love Joanna's books. Her book, A Rumored Fortune, is one of my favorites so I was really excited to get my hands on this one. It's a great historical mystery that everyone will love! 

7. Master Organizer of Mayhem by Kristi Clover

Every mom should read this! It was just what I needed in my season of life. Kristi's practical tips for organizing your household are ones that you really will be able to apply to your life.

6. Shelter of the Most High by Connilyn Cossette

Connilyn's books never disappoint! She combines fiction with Biblical stories in a way that everyone can appreciate. This is some of her best work.

5. Aly's Fight by Aly and Josh Taylor

I first fell in love with Aly and Josh's story on TLC's Rattled and then started following them on Facebook. If you want to hear a miraculous story, this is it!

4. Mending Fences by Suzanne Woods Fisher

I couldn't forget about this book this year. The theme of forgiveness is strong in this one which makes it one of my favorite books in 2019.

3. The Cranky Mom Fix by Becky Kopitzke

I can't say enough good things about this. I cried, I laughed, I LOVED this book!

2. Can't Make This Stuff Up! by Susannah B. Lewis

I have to admit, this book was at the top of my favorites list for months. I really thought this was going to be my number one for the year. This is another book that really appeals to the emotions, which is a win for me. Everyone needs a little "Whoa Susannah" in their life!

And now, for the top FAVORITE book of 2019...

  1. The Way of the Brave by Susan May Warren
This book has all the feels! It's an action packed romance with an emphasis on my favorite Scripture--Romans 8:28. This book technically doesn't release until 2020, but I got an advance copy and could not put it down. This is a must read for the new year!
