A Classic, A Biography, and A Just What I Needed
This past month has been perfect for cuddling up next to the warm bukhari (heater) and reading or maybe staying in my warm bed an extra few minutes while I read just one more chapter. Most people stay up late reading. I am the opposite. With my husband’s schedule, I am more likely to wake up when he does and read in the morning until my regular wake up time. I am making headway in finishing the way too many books I have started so that now I only have six books started. My ideal number is three books so maybe I will get there soon if I stop starting new books. Here are three books that I finished this month.
1. A Classic: A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
2. A Biography: 10 People Every Christian Should Know by Warren W. Wiersbe
A quote from Hudson Taylor. “All God’s giants have been weak men, who did great things for God because they reckoned on HIs being with them.”
A quote from D.L. Moody. “I’d rather be able to pray than to be a great preacher. Jesus never taught his disciples how to preach, but only how to pray.”
A quote from Oswald Chambers. “Never make a principle out of your own experience; let God be as original with other people as He is with you.”
3. A Just What I Needed: Firefly Island (The Shores of Moses Lake book 3) by Lisa Wingate.
I seem to have a knack for reading book series out of order. Lucky for me, this book could be read by itself if needed. As I started the book, it almost seemed like just a fun fluff romance book but as the book went on and the characters developed, I enjoyed getting to know the town and how Mallory, the main character, adapted to being a wife and a mom. I was inspired as Mallory learned to die to her version of self in order to be who she really should be. I was encouraged to engage more in my life as I read about Mallory reaching out and engaging with those around her. Lastly, I enjoyed seeing how the plot thickened and resolved with a few surprise twists. It was a relaxing read after a long week of teaching school. What books have you read in the last month? Would you recommend them or not? If you are interested in more book lists, I am linking up with Anne at Modern Ms. Darcy in her Quick Lit Monthly Linkup.
