My list from last month to this month hasn’t changed very much, but I have a couple of books to add to February’s list! (Which you can find here)
1. Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
This has been a really fun read. It’s quirky, not only because of the characters but also the way it is written. It has some narrated parts, but a lot of emails, phone calls and personal notes mixed in. I have been seeing this cover around, and picked it up at BAM on the clearance rack. It’s been a fun break from textbooks and lesson planning! Semple also was on the writing team for Arrested Development, which makes her pretty awesome in my book!
2. Brush of Wings (Angels Walking Series) by Karen Kingsbury
I don’t have much to say about this book yet, since I just got it in the mail (the first book I’ve pre-ordered). I blasted through the first two books in this series while on an introvert-vacation a few months back. It’s a series on angels, and although it is fiction, it’s really thought-provoking. Definitely a good read!
3. Jesus, Continued… by J.D. Greear
I haven’t gotten very far into this book, but the pastor who leads our college-age Bible study read it and did a month on the Holy Spirit and pulled a lot of his teaching from here. It’s a book that I’m definitely keeping nearby to work through. It’s excellently written and makes some great, clear points about who the Holy Spirit is.
4. The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
It’s crazy, but I think I finally found my go to “What’s your favorite book?” answer. This book was phenomenal. Warning: it did have some adult themes. I didn’t feel awkward holding it or reading through, and it didn’t have many details, but I wouldn’t want my 13-year-old reading it. This was fun, quirky and brilliant. It is any book-lovers dream novel!
5. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Yes, I’m 22. Yes I’m reading Harry Potter. Yes, I’m a huge fan. I read the third book in the sequence last month as well. The thing is, I wasn’t allowed to read these in elementary school, and then I never got into them when I was allowed to read. I didn’t want anything to do with wizards and scary monsters until I discovered The Chronicles of Narnia! If you’re a grown up and a child-at-heart, I highly recommend this read!
That’s all I have for you this month! There are several books from March that I am still slowly working through. I have a really tough time getting through any non-fiction during school months. I also have many book reviews to get written up and published for you lovely people!
Have a blessed day,
