As I’m sure you’re all aware, Christmas break is just around the corner! Mine starts on Wednesday, and while I’ll still be working on some school-related projects (looking at you, ACT), I can’t wait to spend some time this Christmas catching up on my reading! I’ve been swamped with assigned reading this semester, so I’m very excited to have the time to check some books off my TBR list! So, without further ado, here is my official 2019 Christmas break TBR list!
Kisses From Katie by Katie Davis
Since I’m interested in pursuing a type of missions work/relief effort later on in my life, I decided to read this book to expose myself to the story of a girl who moved to Uganda in order to help children by loving on them and teaching them about God’s love. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book, and I have no doubt that it will give me an accurate account of what living in a third-world-country is really like. I’m very excited for this one! :)
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
I started this book several weeks ago, and got about half-way through it before I put it down in order to catch up on some assigned reading. I never got back to it, but I still remember where I left off and have a bookmark saving my spot. ;) I really enjoy reading dystopian/psychological/science fiction stories that examine human society, and I’ve heard that this is a really good one. I’m ready to finish it!
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
This is one of my all-time favorite stories, but I have never actually read it word-for-word. *gasps* I have been listening to the Focus on the Family audio drama of the story for y e a r s, but have never picked up the book and read it cover-to cover. I’m looking forward to re-visiting this classic story, especially after my trip to Green Gables in Prince Edward Island last summer. I can’t wait to travel to Avonlea, see The White Way of Delight, The Lake of Shining Waters, and Green Gables, and of course, all of the beloved characters. <3
The Mountain Midwife by Laurie Alice Eakes
This is another one that I started a few weeks ago, but had to set aside because of school reading. *shakes fist at the mountain of assigned books on my shelf* It’s about a woman who is, you guessed it, a midwife living in the Appalachians, tending to the women of her small town as they deliver their babies. One of my amazing Canadian friends gave this book to me for my birthday back in August, and I am terribly ashamed that I haven’t completed it yet. I promise I’ll finish it soon, Em! <3
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
And of course, I had to include one assigned reading book on this list so I can get a head-start on second semester. A Tale of Two Cities is our next assigned book, and I honestly have no idea what it’s about, who the characters are, or where it’s set, so I’m obviously going to be diving deep into it over the break. XD I hope it’s interesting, haha!
And that about wraps it up for my Christmas Break TBR List! I’d love to know if you’re reading any of the same books, what your TBR list looks like, or any of your thoughts on A Tale of Two Cities – let me know in the comments! :)
I hope you have a fantastic start to your Christmas break, and I’ll see you next week!
