What Are You Reading?

I have stacks and stacks of books in my “to be read” pile. Here are the ones I’m actively reading or stopped reading but intend to finish . . . someday.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte—A classic I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never read. I saw the recent movie—does that count?

Voice in the Night by Pastor Surprise Sithole—The subtitle is “The story of a man and the miracles that are changing Africa.” I won it in a facebook contest run by the publisher, Chosen Books. So far it’s been a fascinating read.

The Elements of Editing by Arthur Plotnik—I bought a really old copy at Half Price Books when I was looking through the writing section. Much of the information is outdated, but he’s got some good thoughts about the editorial process.

Living in the Spirit by George Wood—This one came from a free pile at work and I haven’t started it yet. George Wood is the general superintendant of the US Assemblies of God, and the book covers the Pentecostal teaching on the Holy Spirit.

The Children of Divorce by Andrew Root—I bought this book after a friend heard Andrew Root speak about the effects of divorce on children. My parents recently went through a really nasty divorce that really affected me and my siblings, so when she said he had a lot of helpful things to say about the topic, I thought it might be a good read. So far the writing style is pretty academic, but the content is really good.

Chasing the Sun by Tracie Peterson—This is my most recent review book and I’m just pages into it. Check back later for a full review.

What about you? What are you reading?

  1. Letters to a Young Poet, ever read it? I’m not too far along in it just yet but so far it’s a great read!

    • I haven’t read that one. I might have to check it out when I finally make it through my current stack.

  2. I’m reading multiple books myself! Into the Labyrinth by: Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, Puppet Parade By: Zeinab Alayan, Clockwork Prince By Cassandra Clare, The Dig by Alan Dean Foster and Mr. Midshipman Hornblower by: C.S. Forester! 🙂

      • I am honestly loving them all! The Puppet Parade is a stand alone and I would recommend it. The Labyrinth and Clockwork Prince are part of series. If you’re into Historical fiction about the navy, then Mr. Midshipman Hornblower is definitely awesome. The Dig is so far an excellent sci-fi novel as well! 🙂

      • I guess my stack is going to get bigger before it gets smaller 🙂

  3. Sadly, I know what you mean. I have about three books recommended by friends I’m probably not going to finish right now.

    On the other hand, Jane Eyre is quite good. And sadly, the most recent film doesn’t count as reading it. The 2006 miniseries might, though 😉
