It’s Summer, the only time of year when we pledge to read a million books, then toss them out the car window on our way to the beach. But maybe you actually want to read this Summer! If so, here are some books you should add to your stack.
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
If you haven’t read this yet, find this little book and read it! You might be able to read it in a couple of days. It’s a hard book to describe, but I’ll just say that it’s a magical mix of fantasy, imagination, philosophy, and adventure. Read it.
The Reason for God by Timothy Keller
This is the greatest defense I have read for the existence of God. Armed only with the Bible, philosophy, and logic, he answers hard questions and explains why God just makes sense.
Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin
Okay, now I’m realizing I’m just suggesting my favorite books. But we will continue! Better Than Before is the greatest self-improvement book I’ve ever read. It’s interesting and helpful in real ways. Disclaimer: this is a secular book and I don’t condone everything in it.
How to Be a Bawse by Lilly Singh
This is another book that needs a secular content disclaimer, particularly since I haven’t read it all yet (!!), but it’s shaping up to be the best YouTuber book I have ever read. (Also, by the time this posts, I’ll probably have read the whole thing, so I can run back and take this out if the book takes a bad direction.) This woman has worked so hard for the success she’s had, and she teaches how she’s done it and how all of it had to be “worked for, not wished for.” Many of the ideas she shares are ideas I’ve heard in faith-based forums.
So, if you needed more books to abandon come Fourth of July, I hope these suit you!
