Project 2015: A Book A Week

January 1, 2015 · 10:00 am

In light of the epic success failure of my Project 2013 (I completed 25% of my goals, none of them in order), you might have realized that I’m in the habit of biting off more than I can chew.  This year is no exception. I was reading Stephen King’s On Writing when he casually mentioned that he reads 70 or 80 b00ks a year.  I thought, If he can do 70 or 80, I can do 52, right?  At least just this once?  So I will be attempting to read a book a week during 2015.

I would love to have your suggestions as I make my list for the year.  I actually have over a hundred books on my Goodreads to-read list, but I’d like to prioritize books that come highly recommended by people I know.  So far I’ve got a lot of classics that I was supposed to read in high-school English class, but only skimmed.

What I’m looking for:

  • Mostly fiction, but I will consider compelling non-fiction
  • Books that changed the way you see the world
  • Books by authors from a variety of backgrounds
  • Any book that left you obnoxiously telling all your friends, “You have to read this!”

Thanks for your help!

    If you haven’t already, you should definitely 100% read “Cutting for Stone” by Abraham Verghese.

    I highly recommend ALL of Francine Rivers books but my favorites were Redeeming Love, Leota’s Garden and Atonement Child. I love anything by my favorite fiction authors :John Grisham, James Michner, C.S. Lewis, Sue Monk Kidd, and Lisa See’s Snow Flower and the Secret Fan but I couldn’t get into her other books. Paul David Tripp, John White, Ann Voskamp, Gary Thomas and John Eldredge are my favorite spiritual life and leadership authors.

  3. White Teeth by Zadie Smith & The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy.
