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.
I enjoy this monthly opportunity to share what we’re reading.
Since last time I have completed:
Heaven Without Her: A Desperate Daughter’s Search for the Heart of Her Mother’s Faith by Kitty Foth-Regner, reviewed here. A feminist, agnostic middle-aged daughter is challenged by her mother’s death to investigate whether Christianity’s claims are true. Very good.
The Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine N. Aron, reviewed here. The information and practical helps were great: the New-Agey philosophies and exercises, not so much.
A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa May Alcott, reviewed here, for Tarissa’s Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge this month. This was one of Louisa’s “sensational” stories. Not my usual cup of tea, but it was quite suspenseful and interesting to see that side of her.
Villette by Charlotte Bronte. Just finished over the weekend; hope to review it soon.
A Small Book About a Big Problem: Meditations on Anger, Patience, and Peace by Edward T. Welch. Ditto with this one – I hope to review it this week.
I’ve also dipped into Foods That Harm, Foods That Heal by the editors of Reader’s Digest and The Christian Writer’s Market Guide-2018 edited by Steve Laube, but neither are designed to be read cover to cover.
I’m currently reading:
The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo
Invincible Louisa by Cornelia Meigs, a biography of Louisa May Alcott, also for Tarissa’s challenge.
More Than These: A Woman’s Love for God by June Kimmel
My Father’s House by Rose Chandler Johnson
Christian Publishing 101 by Ann Byle
The Song of Sadie Sparrow by Kitty Foth-Regner
30 Days of Hope When Caring for Aging Parents by Kathy Howard
That about wraps it up for this time. Did you get to read much this month?
