Thanks for letting me take a break last week. I was with family and didn’t have a whole lot of time to write a blog post.
I’ll try to keep to my posting schedule normal these next few weeks, but it’s gonna be hard. I’m out of town again next week, so probably no post. I’m also trying to get my manuscript ready for beta readers by the middle of July, and I still have a whole other edit to do, so I might not be posting those weeks either.
Anyway, that’s just a head’s up for the next couple of weeks. On to the post!
Favorite Books I’ve Read Since Jan.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
I was really doubtful as to if I’d enjoy this story, and at the beginning I didn’t like it because it was a lot of DRAMA. But towards the middle I started appreciating the genre it was written in and the story became more interesting. Now it’s one of my favorite books and one of my favorite movies! I highly recommend this story if you enjoy drama, but even if you don’t, you’ll probably like this book.
In His Steps by Charles Monroe Sheldon.
I had to read this for school, and I was unsure about it at first (that seems to be the trend around me haha). But after reading it, I realized that it was really well written with Christian themes and a very good moral. It is about a church that makes a commitment for one year to never do anything without asking, “What would Jesus do?” By asking this, they completely revolutionize their town and influence others to do the same. Any Christian, new to the faith or not, who enjoys reading fictional stories about how God can change the world for the better should read this story.
Vienna Prelude by Bodie and Brock Thoene
This is the first book in a series, The Zion Covenant series, consisting of nine books. My mom read this book before me and highly recommended it. It’s an amazingly written book about pre-WWII and the Christians living in that time. I am incredibly impressed as to how much research went into this novel. The characters, plot, and setting are very rich and thoroughly developed. I highly recommend this book and it’s series to anyone who enjoys historical fiction.
My All-Time Favorite Books, In No Particular Order
- The Circle Series by Ted Dekker
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
- The Zion Covenant series by Brock and Bodie Thoene
- Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
I probably missed some in the list, but oh well. As you can tell, I really like classics, haha. Anyway, thanks for dropping by, and I’ll see you … around maybe? Like I said, I’m still not sure when I’ll be free to post. But thanks for hanging with my crazy life, and I hope that fall will bring a more orderly posting schedule *fingers crossed*.
