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 ūüôā

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!

Music of the Month – October Edition

¬†I’m starting a monthly tradition. I will take my favorite albums/artists that i’ve been listening to and let you guys know. (Maybe you can tell me your favorite too!)
I will also do this with the books I’ve read that month.

Jon Foreman Fall & Winter eps (just the fall disc, i’ll save the winter for closer to the season… as in tomorrow)- Easily one of my favorite singer and songwriters. Great stuff!

JJ Heller Painted¬†Red¬†i have had this cd for less than a month and have listened to it over 30 times. With an ipod packed with nearly 4,000 songs¬†I know she’s good ūüôā She reminds me of Sara Groves and the lead singer of Addison Road, Jenny Simmons.

¬†Alli Rogers You and The Evening Sky I actually don’t have this cd, but Noisetrade has a compilation of her songs. She’s a fantastic singer and her songs are amazing!

Joy Whitlock God and a Girl This chick has a seriously passionate voice. Kinda reminds me of mix between Jennifer Knapp and (CBD.com says and i agree) Kendall Payne with a bit of KT Tunstall.

¬†Downhere Ending is Beginning I love downhere’s music they have songs that I just keep coming back to and discovering all over again. I would also recommend Wide-eyed and Mystified by downhere.

¬†Jenny & Tyler A Prelude I’ve been really excited to find this guys through an ad on Facebook of all things. They are a Married couple from Nashville. This is an acoustic cd. I don’t have their other one but i know that it’s good!

Bethany Dillon Waking Up Honestly i’m always going to have bethany dillon playing. I’ve loved her music for¬†a long amount of time. On this cd in particular i love You are on Our Side. Seriously amazing stuff.

Alanis Morissette Flavors of Entanglement I’ve really liked Alanis’s voice since the Chronicles of Narnia soundtrack.¬†I don’t like straitjacket (i don’t like hearing words that i don’t say being repeated over and over) I do¬†really like¬†Incomplete, Tapes and Not as We.

That’s what i’ve been listening to this month. Let me know what you have!
