To those who love reading books about magical books, this one is for you. These make the ordinary books lined up on my shelves seem all the more mysterious and full of magic.

Blessed Are the Misfits by Brant Hansen

Blessed Are the Misfits by Brant Hansen

Blessed Are the Misfits is a shout out to all the others who feel like misfits spiritually due to some of the more popular church trends, and I’m shooting my hand up as high as it will go. He gives you a seat at the table, quotes The Lord of the Rings, references U2 and Grease, and lets so many people know that they aren’t alone.

Top Books I Read In 2018

Since 30 books happens to be quite a few and I wasn’t able to write a separate review for each of them, I wanted to give you a recap on some of my favorite books in 2018.

Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak

Bridge of Clay is about life, grief, art, and love. A secret is unburied. A bridge gets built. I once complained that those elements in the book’s synopsis didn’t give me much to go on when I cracked it open. But I quickly learned it was best that way.

The Salt Compass Bookshelf: All Things New by John Eldredge

All Things New by John Eldredge

In All Things New, Eldredge talks about how our kingdom hearts are constantly searching for and catching glimpses of the Kingdom of Heaven that has not yet been brought to earth, and why our kingdom hearts are so grieved when faced with loss.

Come Matter Here by Hannah Brencher on The Salt Compass bookshelf.

Come Matter Here by Hannah Brencher

I kept thinking HOW DOES SHE KNOW?! How does she know what this feels like?! Has she had secret access to my mind at some point?! From the whisper roaring, “I don’t want to rebuild” to burning eggs in the kitchen, this was so spot on.

Dawn of Wonder by Jonathan Renshaw

Dawn of Wonder by Jonathan Renshaw

There’s an ancient beauty, a piece of that wonder, or a glimmer at something that many don’t know how to put their finger on, woven into the narrative that is absolutely breathtaking, and how Renshaw managed to capture that in ink I will never know. I don’t even know what that is exactly.
