2017 Reading Challenge

I tend to be pretty ambitious at the beginning of the year, and if there’s anything I’ve learned about myself over the last few years, it is that I don’t get to read as many books as I set out to. So, this year I am following along with Tim Challies’ Christian Reading Challenge. My end goal is to do his avid plan, but I am just starting out with the light. I hope to finish this list by July, and then will share my updated list after that!

Here are the books I’ve chosen to read for the Light plan:

  1. A biography: I am Malala by Malala Yousoufzai
  2. A Classic Novel: Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis
  3. A book about history: Fever and Thirst by Gordon Taylor
  4. A book aimed at your gender: Desperate by Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson
  5. A book about theology: The Prodigal God by Timothy Keller
  6. A book recommended by your pastor: Big God by Orlando Saer
  7. A book about Christian life: The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen
  8. A book with more than 400 pages: Do Good Well by Nina Vasan and Jennifer Przbylo
  9. A book published in 2017: Chasing Slow by Erin Loechner
  10. A book for children or teens: North or Be Eaten! by Andrew Peterson
  11. A book more than 100 years old: Callista by John Henry Cardinal Newman
  12. A book of your choice: East of Eden by John Steinbeck
  13. A book about a current issue: Seeking Refuge by Stephan Bauman and Matthew Soerens
