5 Books That Will Radically Change Your Prayer Life

We were created to crave intimacy. We want to be known, and we want to be pursued. People can never satisfy these desire. These are God-sized longings. The reason we lack the deep and satisfying prayer life we need is usually due to a lack of understanding of how God feels about you and how He sees you.

I am sharing five books that completely changed my prayer life. These books challenged me and stretched my understanding of God’s love and as a result deepened my intimacy with Him and increased my hunger to want to be in communication with Him.

Here are the five books and what I think you will take away from each. Also as a disclaimer, this post does contain affiliate links to the books on Amazon. Know that I value your time and trust, and I would NEVER recommend anything that I don’t fully love and stand behind. You can click any of the book titles or images to put them on your Amazon wishlist! Christmas is right around the corner, and you’re going to love these!

Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of
those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.

My Thoughts

I heard about Red Queen Weeks before it came out. Then I heard about so often that my interest was deffidenly peeked. There was so much buzz around this book that I even preordered it. I had such high expectations for this book. I have to admit that I was a little disappointed.

First let me say that I enjoyed this book. I liked it. That's as deep as my feelings go however. 

The world was unique. I enjoyed learning about the world and the way that this kingdom worked. The oppression that you see the reds enduring was heart breaking and the power and privilege the silvers had was infuriating. The Characters on the other hand may have been my major issue.

Half way through the book I just realized I didn't care much for any of them. I was not attached to Mare the was I like to be with the main character. I didn't connect with her. That was sad. Then there were the love interests. I wont get spoilery, but there are more than one that are kind of hinted at that they could potentially be our main characters love interest. I didn't like ANY of them. Couldn't stand most of them. I found them whiney.

Despite my lack of connection to the character, I did like the book. The ending would by far have to be the most redeeming part of the book. The conclusion did shock me. I saw a what was coming...because duh... but not quite in the way it occurred. I am pretty good at guessing the plots of movies and books so I do enjoy when a author surprises me. 

I look forward to the next book and honestly, I have high hopes for it. 

I would recommend this book. It has unique components and the ending is wonderful. It is a good book and a fun read. It was just over hyped for me.
