Recently my mom started sending out a top ten list of books she read during the year with the family Christmas letter. I thought that was a fun idea, so I thought I’d share some books I read this year and enjoyed.
At Home by Bill Bryson. A history of some of how the rooms and objects in our home came to be.
Book of Mormon Girl by Joanna Brooks. Joanna Brooks’ story of growing up Mormon and becoming a Mormon feminist.
Mormon Diaries by Sophia L. Stone. A biography of leaving Mormonism.
Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life by Karen Armstrong. Steps to becoming a kinder, more compassionate person to those around you and to yourself.
Towards a True Kinship of Faiths by the Dalai Lama. A look at the similar core values in the religions of the world, and how those values can help bring peace and understanding to the world.
For Her Own Good : 150 Years of the Experts’ Advice to Women by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English. A look at the health and family advice given to women over the years… most of it terrifying.
