The folks at 5 Minutes For Books host What’s On Your Nightstand? the fourth Tuesday of each month in which we can share about the books we have been reading and/or plan to read. You can learn more about it by clicking the link or the button.
Since last time I finished:
A Walk In the Park by Barbara Andrews, a very sweet and tender story about a sculptor who easily talks to “his girls” that he sculpts but can’t seem to talk adequately to a real, live one — until he meets Maddie.
A Long Walk Home, also by Barbara Andrews, which gives the back-story of the housekeeper of the sculptor in the first book and then ties the two stories together at the end. Both Andrews books are reviewed together here.
Faithful by Kim Cash Tate, reviewed here, about three friends in various situations who learn what being faithful means. That sounds like a bland description, but it was a very enjoyable and beneficial, hard-to-put-down read.
An Unlikely Blessing by Judy Baer, not reviewed, a pleasant but not riveting read about a new pastor of two churches in a rural town. Similar in many ways to Mitford but not quite as charming.
Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross: Experiencing the Passion and Power of Easter compiled by Nancy Guthrie. Excellent. I read and reviewed it last year and read it again in the weeks before Easter this year.
A Tale of Two Cities by Dickens. I just finished it — I’ve read it at least twice before. but it had been a number of years. Loved it, loved it.
Hope to have a review up soon. My review is here.
Selfishness: From Loving Yourself to Loving Your Neighbor by Lou Priolo is just a 31-page booklet, but, wow, it packs a punch. Very convicting. I shared some quotes from it yesterday.
I’m currently reading:
A Novel Idea: Everything You Need to Know about Writing Inspirational Fiction — bit by bit in between other books.
Women’s Ministry in the Local Church by Ligon Duncan and Susan Hunt
Leaving by Karen Kingsbury, a new series with Bailey Flanigan from previous series.
The Judgment by Beverly Lewis, second in The Rose Trilogy
Love Finds You in Camelot, Tennessee by Janice Hanna.
