Reading is one of the best ways I’ve found to expand my creativity. Today I thought I’d share some of my favorite books with y’all.
Over the Divide has been one of my favorite and most read books during the last seven years. The best part of the book is the voice of the story, it’s so clear and extremely real. Plus the author hit the perfect balance with what details to include; even now I can picture the setting to a T, although it’s been months since I last read it.
The story takes place during a backpack trip over the continental divide, and parallels the internal journey the main character, Jacy, goes through.
Love Does tells the fantastic true account of the author’s life and how he lives each day to the fullest to bring glory to God. What I like most about this book is how he doesn’t worry about being like everyone else. His life is one big, difference-making adventurous and creativity plays a key part in what he does.
Homer Price is a book my mom read to me when I was a kid and then eventually I began reading it for myself. It’s been a couple of years since I last read it, but I remember it being quite funny and really creative in it’s delivery.
You can find out about more of the books I read and enjoy over at my Goodreads account, and if you’re on Goodreads, I’d be happy for book recommendations.
