11. Monster in the Hollows by Andrew Peterson – This was the third book in the Wingfeather saga that I read to myself and then again aloud to the big kids. We all loved this book. I cried reading the final chapters to them, it is such a great story. If you have kids my kids ages or older, you have got to get these books! We are trying to be patient waiting for the final book to be written.
12. Green Leaf in Drought by Isobel Kuhn – This book has been quoted so many times that I have had it in my mental “to read” list for a long time. I was so happy to see it on the shelf in our church library. It was a great little book, full of truths and lessons in faith.
13. Strength in What Remains by Tracy Kidder – This book tells the story of a Berundian man name Deo who escapes genocide in Berundi to Rwanda, as the genocide begins there. He miraculously makes it to America. His story is amazing, and the history of those parts of Africa was helpful to learn, while tragic.
My “to read” pile is getting smaller, and I am not very excited about those books. Does anyone have any recommendations for me?
