This is a very hard post to write. There are so many good books that I read this past year! If any of you would like to see a list that is mostly complete of all the books I read this past year, check out my Pinterest page. I have to say that there were so many books that I read this year that vied for the top spaces. It is not always like that! Stones for Bread by Christa Parrish I loved this story. It took the story of a young woman that bakes bread for a living. It not only wove a beautiful story with recipes between, but it had the spiritual truths of bread baking throughout.
