Summer Reads


I know Summer is getting close to it’s kind of end, but hey! We live in Atlanta, which means warm nights on your porch are nowhere near over. So I wanted to share some of what I’ve been reading and listening to for the past few months or so, and what I hope to jump into before Summer is over. If you’ve read some beauties lately please leave them in the comments so Amazon gets all my money next month 🙂

Also, I made a GIF. I’m proud.

Present Reads:

Present Over Perfect – Shauna Niequest, this book is actually wrecking my life in the best way.

Rooted – Banning Liebscher, should be required reading for every young Christian leader.

Scary Close – Donald Miller, If you got on the bandwagon late like me…

Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with both our Hearts and our Minds – Jen Wilkin, CALLING ALL WOMEN, this book is for real changing the entire way I approach the Bible, for the better. It’s amazing.

Settle For More – Megyn Kelly, because I’m part journalist and love boss women.

The Skimm. A daily newsletter sent right into your inbox that gives you bite-sized news with humor and wine coupons. You need this in your life.

Present Listens:

Up and Vanished – Payne Lindsey, It will take your love for murder mysteries and you hometown heart and mix them up into one totally satisfied commute.

This American Life – NPR, for the story lovers.

TED Radio Hour – also NPR, for the curious.

Code Switch – also NPR (can you tell I’m in love with NPR and want to work for them??) for those wanting an inside look at race in America.

Plan-to Reads/Listen:

Between the World and Me – Ta-Nehisi Coates

Just Mercy – Bryan Stevenson

Uninvited – Lysa TerKeurst, another bandwagon white girl suggestion, but if the shoe fits…

The Bible Project, I don’t know a ton about this one but I’ve heard raging reviews.

That’s it! It’s a baby list but it’s literally my right-now list, and if I’ve learned anything about reading it’s that one chapter at a time is the best way to go.

Much love to the readers and the nons!
