I'm Proud of You - My Friendship with Fred Rogers; Madigan - Not at ALL what I expected, it took me about half of the book to bond with it and then I loved it completely. (I pushed through since it came so, so highly recommended. Now I see why.) It's an incredible story.
A Lamp for My Feet; Elisabeth Elliot - One of my favourites of hers. I'd like to buy this one actually. It's that good.
Loneliness; Elisabeth Elliot - Will reread this one for sure. Full - as usual - of her powerful choices and challenges.
These Strange Ashes; Elisabeth Elliot - Beautiful. Her world view in this book has shaped me deeply for the last fifteen years.
One Day; Nicholls - Just couldn't get past the first couple pages, I hear you have to go a couple chapters in - I'll try again some other time.
Still Alice - A beautiful, illuminating book - I would reread this one. It was helpful to me with my grandparents having Alzheimers. A first-person perspective of a young professor realizing she has it and how that affects her family.
Summer at Tiffany - Sheer delight, really enjoyed it a lot. Two girls work at Tiffany's in NYC for the summer during the war. It's so fun.
Making Toast - I sobbed, but I really liked it - a little name-droppy, but not enough to make me disinterested. Beautiful true story about how a family copes with loss.
Where Lions Roar At Night; Rosie Boom - Reading this to the kids - we all LOVE it! A kiwi family of six kids moving to a farm and living in the barn. True story. Completely delightful.
Slipping Into Paradise - Why I Live in New Zealand - Loved the subject, just couldn't get into his writing style/approach. I wish I could've.
The Long Run; Matt Long - An amazing story! Read the excerpt in Runner's World and both my husband and I were really inspired. Book is more details and truly incredible.
Wagon's West series: Oregon - I quit the series! Got a little formulaic and the relationships were starting to bug me - I loved the history parts, though.
Wagon's West series: Wyoming
Wagon's West series: Nebraska
Wagon's West series: Independence - Great series to read on long plane rides.
Sarah's Key - Beautiful, sad, haunting. A part of the war we never heard about growing up in Europe.
* Sorry, not all books have authors and I just couldn't link them all. All are easy to find on amazon, though. I still wanted to share them since I love seeing other people's book lists and getting ideas!
