I'm being really ambitious and trying to read all of the Anne of Green Gables books and all of the Narnia books before next Monday. :anxious:

Yeah. Definitely didn't work. I only read one Narnia book and 2.something Anne books. But it's the thought that counted! \:D/

I'm reading a book called Veiled Freedom... It hasn't gotten exciting though.

I'm reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone-when everything was fun and simple. It's nice to go back to the beginning book and read where it all started.

I started "The Trouble with Tulip" by Mindy Starns Clark the other day. So far I'm not loving it, but it's okay, and a friend told me that she loved it, so I'll keep reading! \:D/ It's rare that I don't finish a book I start, even if it isn't that great, and hopefully I'll get more into the book soon!

Catspaw, you have much greater mental fortitude than I'll ever have. \:D/ If I'm not enjoying a book, I'll just put it away and forget about it - certainly helped me get through university a lot quicker. :noway:

*takes a quick screenshot before the proof disappears* Thanks, Trent! \:D/ There have been a few books I've abandoned, but they are few and far between. Obviously school falls under it's own category...if I read every single word of every textbook over the last six years (or more, going back to high school), my life would have been a lot more bothersome. ;)

I am reading The Pilgrim Song by Gilbert Morris. I think by now you can figure out my favorite authors. ;)

Huzzah for quoting yourself! ;)

I finished Blue Like Jazz this week. It was okay - some good thoughts, some bizarre features including two illustrated stories to make points. Donald Miller writes nonreligious thoughts on Christian spirituality with such honesty. Even though he dwells on certain points like the faults of the Christian community, his book got me thinking.

Now I'm reading our very own book of the month, When Heaven Weeps by Ted Dekker. I'm also catching a chapter here and there of More Than a Carpenter by Josh McDowell; it's very similar to The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel.

Brothers in Battle, Best of Friends by Bill Guargne (Spelled that wrong...) and Bob Heffron. It's good, but I've read better.

This afternoon I started reading "Wiser Than Serpents" by Susan May Warren. It's super good! It's part of her Mission: Russia series. It's best if you've read "In Sheep's Clothing" and "Sands of Time" first, since the characters and their relationships definitely make appearances. I actually read the second one first, before I even realized that there was another book connected to it. You can read them separately, but I would recommend reading them in order, and reading them all. This one is extremely good so far, and definitely living up to the tagline on the cover labeling it a thriller! :mad:

I'm reading Exposed by Brandilyn Collins. I'm trying to only read it during the day, or else I get really jumpy. O:)

The third was by far my fav in the series! I read that right when Taken came out in theaters and it was a little weird how all of a sudden there was this push of information into my brain on human trafficking - def gave me a lotto think and pray about. :)

I just finished Jimmy by Robert Whitlow, and am now reading BoneMan's Daughter by Ted Dekker. Loved Jimmy and it made me almost cry!

After finishing it, I think that it was my favourite as well. Some of it was just knowing all the characters better. By the third book you have 6 characters that you know really well and care about. It was very intriguing and eye-opening as well. The long-postponed romance was quite touching. :sniff: I really enjoyed that aspect of the story, as well as continuing to see the previously developed relationships advance.

I'm reading "Wings of an Angel," the first book in Sigmund Brouwer's Winds of Light series (6 books were basically compiled into the one complete story in the novel "Wings of Dawn," if anybody is looking for this awesome book/series!) \:D/ I haven't read this series in a while, and I'm really looking forward to all the fun that awaits me. \:D/

*bump*

I just had to psot to say that I'm reading Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. I'm in the middle of the third part, and am liking it immensely. \:D/ Next it's The Divine Comedy. :yes:
