Happy New Month!! Welcome to February. While thinking of things to gift and share this month, do read this post on gift ideas for book lovers.
I will be going through the books I read last month. I created a reading challenge for 2019, I have prompts I follow weekly. My overall goal for the first two months is to read books I already own. It’s not about just acquiring books, I need to read them.
January Book Wrap Up
At the end of January, I read 9 books in total, more than my planned 5 books, I need to keep this energy throughout the year, amen?
A Book I Read Last Year And Thoroughly Enjoyed: Sex, Jesus and The Conversations The Church Forgot by Mo Isom. I still have not finished this book because it is taking me longer to finish the book compared to the first time but I will always recommend it especially for young Christians. I reviewed it here.
A Book From My TBR Pile or Review Copy: My Mind Is No Longer Here by Ifedigbo Nze Sylva. I am delighted I got to read some of the books that were occupying my space, I really do not like clutter and also the habit of acquiring books without reading the ones I bought earlier. I reviewed the book here.
A Book From My TBR Pile or Review Copy: The Yearning by Mohale Mashingo. I enjoyed reading this book and was relieved when I finished because It has been with me for the longest. I reviewed it here.
A Book From My TBR Pile or Review Copy: Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan to Serious, Specific and Strategic Prayer by Priscilla Shirer. I honestly enjoyed this book and it helped my prayer life in the month of January. I reviewed the book here and highly recommend it.
A Celebrity’s Memoir: Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of NIKE by Phil Knight. This book was recommended every where and I knew it was something I had to read. I reviewed it here.
Other books I read in January:
Perseverance is my power by Perceptual Plazz
Don’t Say It Is Not Your Country by Nnamdi Oguike. This book will be published this month and I will interview the author on Celebrating Greatness Section.
