Books I Read In 2018

Originally I wanted to read 30 books in 2018 but working an intense summer internship, moving to Chicago, and being sick all really hinder that. Within all that I was able to accomplish reading 18 books! So without further delay – my 2018 book list.

1. Called to Create – Jordan Raynor

If you’re looking for a great book about understand why every human is creative, check it out.

2. Everything We Keep – Kerry Lonsdale

I only read this cause it was free on kindle unlimited, I’ll admit – I thought really hard about buying the second book because I was definitely hooked.

3. Kisses From Katie – Katie Davis

If you’re looking for an amazing story about someone actually changing the world, this is the book for you!

4. Dance, Stand, Run – Jess Connolly

If you want to learn how to walk boldly, this is what you need.

5. Stronger Than the Struggle – Havilah Cunnington

Life is tough, but so are you.

6. Nothing to Prove – Jennie Allen

“Striving is stealing our joy, our moments.”

7. Play with Fire – Bianca Olthoff

If you’re ready to be more than just a flame, if you’re ready to be a flamethrower, this is for you.

8. The Last Safe Investment – Bryan Franklin & Michael Ellsberg

If your professional life needs a kick in the butt.

9. To Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee

Because it’s true… “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

10. The War of Art – Steven Pressfield

For when you’re finally ready to set your creativity on fire.

11. Gut and Psychology Syndrome – Natasha Campbell-McBride

Life changing.

12. Niche Down – Christopher Lochhead & Heather Clancy

If you’re ready to surpass average and become legendary.

13. Wonder – R. J. Palacio

Because I couldn’t agree more…“Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.”

14. The Summer I Turned Pretty – Jenny Han

She was one of my favorite authors growing up, just a fun nostalgic read.

15. Our Little Secret – Roz Nay

I was in the library when I saw this sitting on the new releases table and it caught my eye. Not my usual genre but it wasn’t terrible.

16. To Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee (again!)

Because I think we all need to embody the spirit of a mockingbird…“Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a Mockingbird.”

17. Capital Gaines – Chip Gaines

So many good things. If you’re ready to see the not so straight line of success, this is the read for you.

18. Doing Things That Matter – Tim Mannin

For when you’re ready to dig deep about where you’re going in life. Who are you becoming?

    Happy to see you are still making time for reading Randalyn. It is definitely more challenging as you grow into adulthood, but well worth the effort.

    If you never have ready C. S. Lewis’s Narnia books, you should check them out. Easy read for you but such a great series.
