I made a few changes to the list I’m working through. I found that I needed to read a couple of different books than originally selected. If I end up doing a review or an article related to the book, I will update the title with a link. Happy Reading!
These are the books I’ve chosen.
- Biography: Her Way: The Remarkable Story of Hephzibah Jenkins Townsend (this was a Christmas gift last year that I need to read.)
- Book on Christian Living:
Humble Roots – finish this one, not much left, and then Parenting by Paul David TrippOwn Your Life by Sally Clarkson In Progress
- Book Published in 2018: Joyfully Spreading the Word: Sharing the Good News of Jesus (June 30, 2018)
- Book by author no longer alive:
Let Me Be a Woman orDiscipline: The Glad Surrender by Elisabeth Elliot
- Novel: Crime & Punishment by Dostoyevsky – it’s on our bookshelf and I doubt that I would try to read it if not for this challenge.
- Book for Teens or YA: The Sword of Shannarah from the Original Shananarah Trilogy: this is a series that Brian and I are reading together. It’s in the same vein as Lord of the Rings. Done
- Book more than 100 Years Old: Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
- Book targeted at the opposite gender: Wild at Heart by John Eldrege – Brian has requested that I read this book
- Book your best friend recommends: Desperate by Sally Clarkson Done
- Book with at least 400 pages: The Flames of Rome – 456 pages. Here’s the blurb from Goodreads: “Following the family of Flavius Sabinus, mayor of Rome under Nero Maier captures all the drama and tension of the political conflicts that precede and follow the Great Fire of Rome, and the epic political and religious clashes of the world’s capital. This is the sensational story of pagans at their worst—and Christians at their best.”
- Book of Your Choice: Hannah Coulter: a novel
- Book about theology: The Reason for God by Tim Keller – Brian got this for Christmas. I started it and it is very, very good. Similar C.S. Lewis in Mere Christianity.
- Book about current events: In the Country We Love: My Family Divided or We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled – I’m using my library to find a book in this category. Both of these look interesting.
