This is not your typical Top Ten (or in my case, Top Twelve) book list. This is not a list of the best books that have hit the market in the last year. Quite literally, there are NO hot takes in this post.
That’s not how I roll, in part because a girl can only buy SO MANY BOOKS at a time, and also because library waiting lists take forever. But more than that, reading has become for me a spiritual practice and I am finding that the Spirit brings books across my path at just the right time. This year has been no exception as these books in particular have been both spiritual companions and guides for me as I worked through a year of hard, but fruitful personal growth. So, like I said, no hot takes. More like testimonies. But, you never know what book might become a tool of transformation, or a source joy and encouragement.
