A new year means new goals. After a strenuous master’s degree program, I took some time off of reading for fun. Honestly, my brain needed a break. I could set this goal higher, but as mentioned in a previous post, I want my reading goal to be attainable and not intimidating (read here).
I may make some tweaks to this list, but my goal is to read 24 books this year. I am going to list 20 books that I plan to read. I am taking suggestions for the last four and I am willing to adjust some of these. It is difficult to fully predict what I plan to read. These have been on my backlog for awhile, so many of these make sense.
I am looking forward to getting back into Goodreads for tracking purposes and to watch others on their quest to complete their goals (many are much higher than mine). Goodreads is a fabulous tool if you love reading. It is definitely worth looking into if you love reading.
Here are twenty books I hope to read this year:
- Here and Now (Gallaty)
- Church in Hard Places (McConnell)
- Am I Called? (Harvey)
- Screens and Teens (Koch)
- I am Going (Akin)
- Gaining by Losing (Greear)
- Ordinary (Merida)
- Leading on Empty (Cordeiro)
- Rediscovering Discipleship (Gallaty)
- Something Needs to Change (Platt)
- Replicate (Gallaty)
- Preaching for the Rest of Us? (Gallaty)
- Lies Pastors Believe (Hartman)
- It Happens After Prayer (Charles)
- Among Wolves (Lewis)
- Creature of the Word (Chandler, Patterson, Geiger)
- How to Ruin Your Life (Geiger)
- The Volunteer Church (Anderson & Fox)
- Practicing Greatness (McNeal)
- Taking God at His Word (DeYoung)
This concludes my current plan of what I hope to read. I’m looking to finish this list with fictional books. What books would you add to this list? What books do you plan to read this year? What is your 2021 reading goal?
