Introducing the Brave Love Book Club!

Book clubs have always sounded so appealing. I am an avid bookworm and book-collector, but in recent months I have not read as much as I would have liked to.  2014 is the year that changes! One of my goals is to read 15 books & 15 plays in 12 months, and I wanted to invite you in to the challenge. 

This is where the Brave Love Book Club comes in to play! 



This can be as involved or as noncommittal as you'd like. The goal is to get us reading and digging deeper into what we're receiving! I'm notorious for speed reading, and often when I go back to an old favorite I catch new things that I skimmed the first time. Yikes! 

The Brave Love Book Club Vision: Each month will feature one book, mixing it up between old favorites and newer titles. I will host a link-up at the end of the month where we can share our thoughts, reviews, reflections, you name it. This is not a requirement, but an option! I'll also pose discussion questions on Instagram and Twitter throughout the month to encourage you along the way and to connect our growing community :) 

And depending on the interest, I would be willing to host a Google hangout, Twitter party, or Instagram direct message to connect with everyone! Just let me know what works for you and we'll make it happen!

Brave Love Book Club 2014:
May: A Million Little Ways by Emily Freeman
June: Crash the Chatterbox by Steven Furtick
July: You're Made for a God-Sized Dream by Holley Gerth

There you have it! In May I will be reading A Million Little Ways and I would love for you to join me! It's currently on sale on Amazon here. Don't fret about breaking the bank for these books. Head to the library, download the e-version, borrow from a buddy, or break out your well-loved copy and let new life breathe from it. I can't wait to hear what you think of this one!

Be sure to use the #bravelovebookclub tag if you share about it. I've got a giveaway in mind for down the line ;)

  1. I love this idea! I will definitely join you for some of those books. I read Redeeming Love when I was in college, but would really like to go back through it again. I also just finished Bittersweet, and read Bread & Wine last year, and have been wanting to read Cold Tangerines next! I just love Shauna Niequist. And Beth Moore, too! You picked some great books!

  3. These all look like great picks! I've read Redeeming Love and LOVE it so much so that my copy of it has pages falling out of it, it's been read so much. As always I'm looking for new books to get into, so I might have to join you on this :)

  9. This is such a good idea!! I just finished reading A Little Million Ways a couple weeks ago, but I feel like it's one of those books that I would need to reread. I haven't read any of the other books -- but they look awesome! I can't wait to see how this book club goes! Also, I have been out of the blog world for a little bit, and didn't realize that you changed your blog name and design! I love it so much and I'm glad I found your new blog, as I was missing Anchored in Love Divine! Happy Spring, Bailey Jean!
