5 after 5 Great Books Read in 2016 Edition. Come and share your 5 after 5 with us each week! #linkup

Welcome back to the 5 after 5! After a long week come and share your list of 5! Each week we will have a new topic for the following Saturday! So think of your great 5 After 5 List and come link up with us! This week is Great Books Read in 2016.

I made a huge Book Challenge for myself this year! And man do I need to get on the move 🙂 I love to read and I try to find time each day to fit in a little bit even when it is busy!

Great Books Read in 2016

Made To Crave by Lysa Terkeursk

I believe any Christian women who is trying to lose weight should read this book! She talks about her own struggles with losing weight and how we need to shift our desires for food to developing our  relationship with the Lord-Craving Him and not food. Excellent read!

Your Morning Basket by Pam Barnhill

If you’re a homeschooling mom and you have multiple children you are teaching this is an excellent resource, a must read! It is an e-book and comes with some great printables for starting your own morning basket time. I wanted to start doing this with my daughter even though we are a couple of year from officially homeschooling. It has been a blessing to start incorporating into our daily routine.

The Painter’s Daughter by Julie Klassen

I have loved reading Klassens books! This is one of here new ones and you will not be disappointed if you love romance, mystery, regency books.

Streams of Mercy by Lauraine Snelling

This is book 3 in her series Songs of Blessings. Really it is part of a multi-series all tied together! Love them all. I thought this book was going to be the last one in the series so the ending was a surprise to me! I can’t wait for the next one to come out!

The Curiosity Keeper by Sarah Ladd

This is the first book I have read by Ladd. I tend to get stuck on reading one author until I have read all their books and have to find a new one 🙂 Tell me I’m not the only one that does this! I really enjoyed this book and I see myself picking up one of her others books in the near future!


Lately I have started to read more than one book at a time and found that adding variety helps me expand my reading selections more!  So right now I am currently Reading

Julius Ceasar by William Shakesphere

One thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp

The Hidden Art of Homemaking by Edith Schaeffer

Formation of Character by Charlotte Mason

The Lost Heiress by Roseanna White

Plan Your Year by Pam Barnhill

I rotate  through my list and read  1-3 chapters in a book then move on to another book. It has helped me to read other books than just fiction and I have really enjoyed doing it this way. It means it takes me longer to finish a book but make reading Shakespeare  much easier than just trying to read it in a week.

  1. How fun to open this up and see not one, but TWO references to books by one of my best friends – Pam Barnhill! She really is all that and a bag of chips! And I had to laugh at your comment about reading something from one author and then having to go read everything else they’ve done – I completely do that myself!
