I have been a little afraid that my book-related posts may have gotten lost in the shuffle of the 31 Days With Elisabeth Elliot posts, but I’ve enjoyed some good reading this month.
Since last time I have completed:
The Problem of Pain by C. S. Lewis, reviewed here. I was disappointed to find several areas where I disagreed with Lewis in this one, but aside from those, he had some very helpful things to say.
To Whisper Her Name by Tamera Alexander, reviewed here, reminded me that “romance” is not my favorite genre, but I really enjoyed the historical places and people and the setting of TN just after the Civil War ended.
I Dared to Call Him Father: The Miraculous Story of a Muslim Woman’s Encounter with God by Bilquis Sheikh, reviewed here. Fascinating.
The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II by Denise Kiernan, reviewed here, about a “secret city” that sprang up during WWII. Fascinating not only because of the subject but also because that city is not far from where I now live.
I’m currently reading:
Knowing God by J. I. Packer along with Tim Challies’ Reading Classics Together Series. I’ve been sharing impressions of a couple of chapters at a time here. Only one week to go! I will probably write a regular shorter review of it when I am done.
The Dead Secret by Wilkie Collins, the last of my classics challenge books.
Come Rain or Come Shine, Jan Karon’s latest. Love.
Child of Mine by Beverly Lewis
Unlimited by David Bunn
Gilead by Marilynne Robinson Have heard great things about this and am looking forward to it.
What are you reading these days?
