Book List 2013-- Better Late Than Never Someone Once Said

I always do a 'want to read list' at the beginning of each year. It's really a wish list of sorts which I usually make a big dent in. I am typically a voracious reader but this school year I've had to slow waaaayyyyy down due to my work schedule. It is totally cramping my style reading wise! So the way I do this is to make a list usually so much longer than I'll ever get through, then start reading! I get a feel from what I would like to read next just by perusing my list. I usually have one Biblical topic and also one non-fiction/novel going at the same time. So, without further delay Here's my list for this year (since it's already March but y'all are so full of grace aren't you!!) two parts, but in no particular reading order. I've already read several of these and will be doing reviews of my favs in the near future.
