I read A LOT of books. Too many to write a good review for every book I read. In light of this, what I’ve decided to do is post a book update every few posts. These will give in about one or two sentences my opinion of the books I’ve read lately. Don’t worry, I’m still going to do full reviews for certain books. And if you would like a full review for any of the novels in the updates feel free to comment below.
Without any further ado, here’s the last few books I’ve read.
The Silver Suitcase by Terrie Todd: A sweet WWII romance and redemption story. Not too heavy of a story, but definitely not just a fluffy romance.
Ancient Furies by Anastasia Saporito: An insightful WWII memoir from a Yugoslavian teenage girl’s perspective. I’ll be doing a full review on this one sometime this week.
The Shiloh Legacy trilogy by Bodie and Brock Thoene: An engaging, heart warming series following four families through WWI to the Great Depression.
The Crown and the Crucible and A House Divided: Both of these books are part of the Russians series by Michael Phillips and Judith Pella. I’ve only read the first too, but so far I’m extremely impressed and very much into the stories.
Mere Christianity by CS Lewis: I cannot recommend any book more. Lewis is an amazing author and theologian. He puts so much of the Christian life and faith into perspective. If you don’t read anything else on this list, read this one.
Beneath a Golden Veil by Melanie Dobson: An interesting, romantic gold rush story. not my favorite, book overall a pretty good book.
Longbourne by Jo Baker: Don’t even bother to look at the cover. (Actually I really like the cover but…) This book was absolutely terrible. A promising story quickly went downhill in the first few pages. Let’s just say I never knew Pride and Prejudice could be so inappropriate.
The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson: No offense to fans of this series, but this book was poorly written and extremely shallow. Not exactly my cup of tea.
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens: Amazing writing, and such a good plot. I loved this book. Not everyone’s favorite though, but I would at least give it a hundred pages.
Wonderland Creek by Lynn Austen: A sweet story taking place in the mountains of Kentucky. Very reminiscent of Catherine Marshall’s Christy.
Well, there you have it! I didn’t read all of these recently, some I read over summer and at the end of last school year. But I think it makes a pretty good list of reading suggestions (with the exception of Longbourn). What have you guys been reading? Comment below!
