my summer reading list

Summer is here which, for me, means more time to read. And for remembrance and goal purposes, and if any of you want to know what I plan on reading this summer, here is a list of books. Both serious and funny, non-fiction and novel.


Serious:

- One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are by Ann Voskamp

- Crazy Love by Francis Chan

- Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
- The Pastor's Wife by Sabina Wurmbrand

- Joni: an unforgettable story by Joni Eareckson Tada

- These strange ashes: is God still in charge? by Elisabeth Elliot


Fun Novels:

- Deadline: a novel by Randy Alcorn

- Curse of the Spider King

- The Death Cure by James Dashner

- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (again)

- As many Agatha Christie novels as I can read!

- Poetry

If you've read any of these books please comment on how you liked them. I'd LOVE to hear your opinion.

And a question or two for all of my blog friends, what are your thoughts about posting poetry on this blog? And what are some writing things you would like me to post about?

Have a great summer day. ☺

One Thousand Gifts is a wonderful book! Crazy Love is as well.

I didn't enjoy Wuthering Heights, but it's one of those classics... *smiles*

Agatha Christie is always a good choice!


Happy reading!

Hello Lerowen! =)

How's your summer been so far?
All of these books sound wonderful! Crazy Love was an extremely inspirational book to me, and although I havent read Joni Eareckson Tada's book, I've heard her story and it is incredible.
You sure know how to pick good books!

Ooh, and you'll have to let us all know how the Randy Alcorn novel is. The only book by him I've read is Edge of Eternity and I really liked it. I'm curious about the Deadline trilogy so I can't wait to hear what you think!

Hope you're having a terrific summer!

Liz - My summer has been great! I've been told by a lot of people that Crazy Love is an amazing book so I'm really excited to read it. I just started Deadline, I will do a book reveiw about it when I'm done.

Have a great summer too!
