The folks at 5 Minutes For Books host What’s On Your Nightstand the last Tuesday of each month in which we can share about the books we have been reading and/or plan to read.
Here we are a month into 2018, and I feel like I have gotten off to a pretty good start on my reading goals for the year.
Since last time I have completed:
The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings Us Back to the Garden by Kevin DeYoung, reviewed here. I actually finished this back in December, but after that month’s Nightstand post. It’s a book aiming to help children see the overarching story of the Bible and place individual stores in their place in the bigger picture.
Conscience: What It Is, How To Train It, and Loving Those Who Differ by Andrew David Naselli and J. D. Crowley, reviewed here. Excellent – both Biblically based and very practical.
Ghost Boy: The Miraculous Escape of a Misdiagnosed Boy Trapped in His Own Body by Martin Pistorius, reviewed here. Excellent.
Watership Down by Richard Adams, reviewed here. My first time through this classic, and I enjoyed it very much.
The Man Who Was Thursday by G. K. Chesterton, reviewed here. My first Chesterton book, and not at all what I was expecting, but it kept me pondering for a long time after closing it.
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, reviewed here. Not my usual cup of teas, but I enjoyed it.
Mozart’s Sister by Nancy Moser, reviewed here. Very good.
I’m currently reading:
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Trust: A Godly Woman’s Adornment by Lydia Brownback
The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay
A Spectacle of Glory: God’s Light Shining through Me Every Day by Joni Eareckson Tada. This is a year-long devotional book, so I probably won’t list it every month.
Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
The Story of My Life by Helen Keller
The First Four Years by Laura Ingalls Wilder, also for the Laura Ingalls Wilder Reading Challenge.
After those – something from my reading plans for the year.
Have you spent any of these winter days in a cozy book?
