10 on Tuesday - 10 books I want to read!

Today I'm joining Karli at September Farm for her new linkup - 10 on Tuesday.  Make a list of 10 anythings - no explanations needed.  I mean, you can if you want to, but you don't have to.  Karli, you had me at "make a list"!

Here are 10 books that are currently on my Kindle that I want to read {in no particular order}:

1.  Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up
     by: Marie Kondo

2.  Fervent:  A Woman's Battle Plan for Serious, Specific, and Strategic Prayer
     by: Priscilla Shirer

3.  Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World:  How One Family Learned that Saying No Can Lead to Life's Biggest Yes
     by:  Kristen Welch

4.  For the Love:  Fighting for Grace in a World of Impossible Standards
     by: Jen Hatmaker

5.  Am I Messing Up My Kids? ... and Other Questions Every Mom Asks
     by: Lysa TerKeurst

6.  Having a Martha Home the Mary Way: 31 Days to a Clean House and a Satisfied Soul
     by: Sarah Mae

7.  Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Say Nothing at All
     by: Karen Ehman

8.  Taming the To-Do List: How to Choose Your Best Work Every Day
     by: Glynnis Whitwer

9.  Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions
     by: Lysa TerKeurst

10.  Let.It.Go. - How to Stop Running the Show and Start Walking in Faith
     Karen Ehman

Do you see a theme here?  Praying.  Parenting.  Organizing.  Letting things go...!  I've had many of these books in my Kindle library for quite some time.  I'm not a fast reader and truly must take notes in order to remember what I read.  But, I really would like to commit to catching up and reading some of these books soon.  Have you read any of them? Which one should I start first?!


Can't wait to read the other 10 on Tuesday posts!

Hope you have a fabulous day!  Gig 'em and God bless! 
Holly

  4. You had me at lists and books!! Two of my favorite things. It takes me forever to read books on my kindle, but I can fly through a normal book with ease. I don't know what it is. #letsbefriends

  15. Hi Holly, I found you from Shelly's page. I love this list! If you ever think of doing a book club....I am in the area and would love love to be apart of one. I was apart of a book club in San Antonio and it was great fun and a wonderful time of fellowship.

    1. Hi, Crystal! I have never been a part of a book club but it sounds fun! Email me and maybe we can work out some details for a summer one!!! Thanks so much for reaching out!

  16. List of 10 things - what a fun idea! I'll have to file that one because that would be fun to do. And frankly, I'd like to read every single one of these books too - you have great taste! Except "For the Love", which I already have and may I just say - don't use it for night reading and expect to go to sleep because belly laughs are NOT conducive to sleep! LOL!!! She's so funny.

    Have a great Monday, Holly - I'm catching up on my Tuesday Talk reading!

The conditions have to be just right for me to dig in with reading! :/ HAHA - I'm so glad you told me about For the Love! I was watching Bachelor bloopers the other night and woke up my husband with my giggling!

      Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!

  19. Hi, I'm visiting from Grammie Time's Party at My Place.

    I read Keep It Shut last year. It's great!

    For the Love has been on my to-read list for awhile. Just haven't gotten to it yet. I hear great things about it, though. Seems like several blogs have mentioned it lately.

    Blessings,
    Patti @ Embracing HOme

    1. Hi, Patti! Welcome!!! I've finished For the Love and it is fantastic! She covers a vast amount of topics but ones that we all can relate to! She had me laughing, crying, thinking, and left me inspired - signs of a great book!

      Keep it Shut is definitely one I'm looking forward to reading!

      Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!

  20. These all sound pretty good... but I am so bad at actually reading parenting and self help books; I tend to just check them out, bring them home and then return them.

    1. I'm an incredibly slow reader and I'm terrible at retaining information. For the parenting and self-help ones, I even take notes just so I can remember stuff - which leads to it taking me longer than most! But, I have finished For the Love (yay!) and have started Spark Joy and Fervent. Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great start to your weekend!

  21. These all sound like excellent books! I have lent Fervent to several friends and they loved it, so I really need to read it soon! I would love to hear what you think of it once you read it!
