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 have finished:
No Distance Too Far, Book 2 in the Home to Blessing series by Lauraine Snelling, about a young female doctor in the early 1900s trying to discern whether she is called to Africa, reviewed here.
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis, reviewed here.
Prince Caspian by C. S. Lewis, reviewed here.
Voyage of the Dawn-Treader by C. S. Lewis, reviewed here.
A graphic novel of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe abridged and illustrated by Robin Lawrie. I just finished this last night and haven’t reviewed it. It’s beautifully illustrated and not hard to read in one sitting, so it may be a good introduction for young readers who are more visually oriented. I’m still wrestling with whether I’d want my children to see this first or the novels. I do appreciate that it uses much of the original text rather than changing the language.
Gospel Meditations For Women by Chris Anderson and Joe Tyrpak, about a 32-page booklet. Excellent.
I’m currently reading The Way into Narnia: A Reader’s Guide by Peter Schakel and Beyond Suffering: Discovering the Message of Job by Layton Talbert.
Next, depending on how long Way Into Narnia takes, I may try to read The Silver Chair by Lewis if I think I can do so before Carrie‘s Narnia Reading challenge ends this week. Next up after that is A Heart Most Worthy by Siri L. Mitchell, and I’d like to go through Gospel Meditations For Men with my son. After that I’m not sure — I have several books stacked up to choose from.
Shhh! Don’t tell Carrie that I’ve never read any C.S. Lewis- I don’t want to make her head explode in disbelief! 🙂
I think I would like to read Beyond Suffering. I hear too often people compare themselves to Job! Makes me crazy! They, nor I, have an ounce of the faith that Job had! I will look for this one. Thanks!
Quite the Narnia excursion going on here! I enjoy Lauraine Snelling as well.
Dawn, you’ve been ratted out.
A graphic novel? I’m infinitely suspicious. I’ll watch for your thoughts on THAT one!
I love Siri Mitchell, but I haven’t read A Heart Most Worthy yet. Thanks for commenting on our Kindred Heart Writers blog. I think you and I have a lot of the same preferences when it comes to reading blogs!
Sounds like a great reading month! Narnia is great, isn’t it? I saw the challenge this month but haven’t yet revisited the books.
I am anxiously waiting for the next book in the Home to Blessing series. It is one of my all-time favorites!
Lewis is always a good choice!!
Here is mine
Oooh, I remember you mentioning that Job book. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
