2019 Reading List!

Hi friends!

We are already half way into January and school is back in full force.  Two nine weeks to go until SUMMER!

My friend, Whitney, over at Let's Talk with Whitney SLP has inspired me to follow her blog post about 12 Books in 12 Months: A Year of Books for Moms & Teacher-preneurs .  I love to read and I'll be honest -- I have purchased more books than I am able to read in a year.  BUT - I love setting goals too, so I have picked out some books that will fit with my word of the year this year to share with you.

I have become a huge advocate of self-care.  One of my self-care activities is reading.  Oh, how I love to hygge up and read! Some of my choices are spiritual, some fiction, some parenting, some inspirational.  I tried to mix it up a bit.  These don't include my teacher-preneur book picks -- look for those in the next post! All of these (and their affiliate links) are listed below for you!


January: The Invisible War by Chip Ingram
February: The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine
March: Living Well Spending Less by Ruth Soukup
April: Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris
May: Endangered Minds by Jane M. Healy
June: Stay: Lessons My Dogs Taught Me about Life, Loss, and Grace by Dave Burchett
July: 5 Conversations You Must Have With Your Daughter by Vicki Courtney
August: Are You Sleeping by Kathleen Barber
September: Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist
October: The Entitlement Trap by Richard & Linda Eyre
November: The Mars Room by Rachel Kushner
December: The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks

If I can get through all of these in their respective months, I will have made a big dent in my TO READ list! And while I love reading, we all know that life has a tendency to get in the way and snatch our self-care time.  If I sit down to read, I often fall asleep, especially if I am trying to read before bed.  So, I will be keeping the book of the month in my tote, school bag, car, wherever I go so that I will always have my reading material when I'm waiting at dance, the dentist, the doctor, or in line somewhere.  I also have a subscription to Audible, which is helpful for audiobooks while I am driving.  I have really enjoyed that lately, especially on car trips because I can't read in the car (motion sick!!!).

Do you have books that are always in your reading rotation? These are my well worn, tried and true favorites.  Also pictured are the devotionals that I will be exploring with my daughters and my study Bible.


For my eight-year-old daughter:
Jesus Today Devotions for Kids by Sarah Young
Brave Girls 365-Day Devotional
For my eleven-year-old daughter:
10 Ultimate Truths Girls Should Know by Kari Kampakis 
The One Year Be-Tween You and God: Devotions for Girls (One Year Book) by Sandra Byrd

My deep, hardcore study Bible (I would love to share about this with you):
Chronological Life Application Study Bible

My tried and true favs that are in constant rotation:
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling
Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder

Like Whitney, I will be reviewing each one in my Instastories (saved to highlights) -- do you follow me on Insta? That's where I share -- not so much on Facebook.  Follow me at @potionswithkaren -- I'm really looking forward to sharing there this year. Also, are you signed up on Goodreads? Follow me over there for book reviews and to see my reading lists!

What are you reading with us? Let's use the hashtag #slpbooksmart this year for connecting with each other!
