January-March Reading List

The first quarter of 2015 is more fiction heavy again. I’m really finding a lot of life and joy in novels again whereas a year and a half ago, I was reading all non-fiction. I really go in cycles but have rediscovered the joy of reading novels this past year. I also know that over my sabbatical (starting in April) I will probably read more Christian classics and soul care type books so I’m keeping it light right now. But here’s what’s on my reading list to start the year.  What’s on yours?
