“I am so glad that I live in a world where there are Octobers.” -Anne of Green Gables
I hope you all are having a peaceful, cozy fall! My absolute favorite thing to do in the fall is to curl up with a good book. Sometimes, though, I do not have much time to read during the school year. As a result, I resort to shorter pieces, such as blog posts, while reading my books a little at a time. So, here are some blogs that I have been loving this fall as well as my fall (and probably winter) prospective book list. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!
I have been absolutely loving Moriah’s encouraging posts over at Delighting in Him. I especially enjoy her “Sweet Saturday Sayings,” a collection of excellent, thought-provoking quotes and beautiful pictures posted every weekend. Check out her blog for godly encouragement and inspiration!
I stumbled upon this lifestyle blog a few weeks ago. It is run by two sisters who write honest posts about how to take care of the body that God has given you. Although they can be a bit overboard with the whole “all-natural” thing, overall, B. Well blog is refreshing, encouraging, and informative.
Lexi Thomas is a twenty-something girl who is struggling with cancer. Her vulnerable, honest posts give me perspective and remind me how amazing my God is. I do not know why God is allowing her to suffer so deeply, but, as her website says, “and we know that for those who love God, all things work together for good.”
And now, on to my book list:
–Grace and the Preacher by Kim Vogel Sawyer
This is a book that I have been (slowly) reading for months, and I cannot wait to see how it ends! Kim Vogel Sawyer is an excellent author with an easy-to-read style. My favorite thing about her books is that I close them feeling encouraged, not depressed.
–Bringing Maggie Home by Kim Vogel Sawyer
My mom and sister have been pestering me to read this book for a while now. I cannot wait to dive into this mystery!
–Knowing God by J.I. Packer
I have always wanted to read this book, and now it is one of the options for an independent class assignment. I am looking forward to learning more about Who God is.
-The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
I was not allowed to read these books as a kid, and I am super excited to see what I think of them. I have a feeling that there are going to be some late nights in my future.
What books and blogs are you reading this fall? Have you read any of the ones above? Let me know down in the comments!
