New on the Stack–January Reads

One of my favorite blogs is The Deliberate Reader. I’ve added to my TBR list from her plus some of my favorite reads have come from her suggestions. Her blog is short and sweet and her reviews are honest and to the point. Easy for a busy person like me.

I love to read. I read fiction for relaxation and enjoyment. Non-fiction I read to grow in my walk with the Lord. Sheila at The Deliberate Reader has started a new monthly link up “New on the Stack.” Since I read 99% of my books from Kindle or other reading apps, my stack is “virtual.” I’m going to follow her lead and do a monthly listing of books I have read that previous month or am in the process of reading. If you’d like to get more ideas for books to consider for yourself, go to her blog and see what she and others have linked up.

For January:


In Plain Sight and On the Run by Lorena McCourtney

I can’t remember how I found out about this Ivy Malone series, but I’m loving it. These two books are the second and third in the series. The first is Invisible. I typically don’t read murder mysteries, but these are cute and Ivy is the main part of the book, not the murders that seem to stumble into her life.


Keep It Shut by Karen Ehman

I’m reading this to participate in the Proverbs 31 Book Study on-line. But, needless to say, I need it!

AHA by Kyle Idleman

Reading this because our small group is doing this for our current study. We’re watching the videos during our Wednesday evening times together.

If I Had Lunch with C.S. Lewis by Alister McGrath

This one, also, I can’t remember where I heard about it. I’m slowly going through it. May take several months to finish it, so you may see it again on this list.

Great Lives: Moses: A Man of Selfless Dedication by Charles R. Swindoll

Reading this to go along with our study of Moses in Bible Study Fellowship. This one, too, will take me several months to finish. I started it in the fall.

There you go. Any of these interest you? Have you read any books lately you’d like to recommend? Comment below if you have. I’m always looking to add to my ever-growing TBR list. And, please, go check out the Deliberate Reader’s post.

  1. I used to read a lot of mystery books when I was young, and now I’m wanting to read all of Agatha Christie’s books. I’m going to have to give the Ivy Malone series a try too. 🙂
