This is one of those odd months when there is still almost a week left after the last Tuesday, but I guess that will make next month’s reading look all the better with the extra week. 🙂 October seems to have flown by, but I’ve had some great times reading here and there.
Since last time I have completed:
Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson, reviewed here. Mixed emotions on this one: some good things, some I didn’t agree with.
The Prayer Box by Lisa Wingate, audiobook, reviewed here. A mom of a teenager and an 8 year old escapes from an abusive relationship to start a new life and is asked to clean the house of a neighbor who has passed away. In doing so, she finds boxes of prayers the women had written out to God and is impacted by her life. Drags a little in places but in others it’s wonderful.
Five Brides by Eva Marie Everson, reviewed here. Five roommates in the early 1950s pool their resources to buy a beautiful wedding dress, and this traces the pathways of each of them. Not my favorite of her books, but a pleasant read.
I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up For Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb, reviewed here. Fascinating.
Knowable Word: Helping Ordinary People Learn to Study the Bible by Peter Krol, reviewed here. Very good.
I’m currently reading:
I’m Still Here: A New Philosophy of Alzheimer’s Care by John Zeisel
Secrets of a Charmed Life by Susan Meissner. A real page-turner!
The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson
June Bug by Chris Fabry
Waiting For Peter by Elizabeth Musser
Radical Womanhood: Feminine Faith in a Feminist World by Carolyn McCulley
As usual, I have stacks both on my shelves and in my Kindle app to choose from after these.
