Books of the Month – October Edition

I am going to do this monthly just like the Music of the Month post below. These aren’t going to be all i’ve read this month these are just my favorite noteworthy books 🙂

I want some feedback too. Let me know what you’ve been reading, or if you’ve read any that i have.

Non-Fiction

Jim Palmer Divine Nobodies I really love the concept of this book.  I like that he tells the stories of the ordinary people that came into his life and touched it.

 Debra White Smith What Jane Austen Taught Me About Love & Romance. I have read this book a couple times now. I love the “Dear Jane” note at the end!

  Rebecca St. James Pure. I actually just started this one but i’m really excited about it. It’s a great book by a great artist.

 

Fiction

 Jane Austen. Yep shocking! I’ve been listening to her books read aloud when cleaning my room and whatnot. Then also re-reading my nonfiction books on her works and Life.

 

Francine Rivers Mark of the Lion. I heard a lot of great things about this series and decided to give it a go. Wow! Great historical fiction. I would totally recommend anyone to read them.

 

Francine Rivers Redeeming Love. This has been on my to read list for a while. I just needed to make sure i was ready to handle what was inside the pages. Honestly I will need to read it several more times to get the full picture. But it is a great book about Redeeming Love

Marlo Schalesky Beyond the Night. I was a hesitant to read this book. I thought it would be just another average fiction novel. Oh it’s so good! I really, really loved the whole suspense of it all.

 Sharon Hinck The Restorer and The Restorer’s Son Great books that keep me interested. I like the slight allegorical themes in both books. Can’t wait for the library to get the third!

William Young The Shack I have been reading this for the second time with Kate’s Book Cove (http://bookcove.wordpress.com/) I really like some of the imagery in this book. I don’t have same issues some have with the way the the trinity is portrayed.  I think the point that William Young is trying to make is that we cannot put God in our own little box and make Him who we want.

 

Let me know what you’ve read this month too!

    I also loved the humanity and journey of Divine Nobodies. I was torn between a personally well traveled path of wanting to jettison the church and a desire to figure out what God really desires of Christian community.

    A dozen people have told me to read “The Shack”. I have been slow to do so. Too much excitement too quickly. But, if you are reading it a second time, that might be the best recommendation I have heard. I start reading it soon.
