Here is a quick run-down on a few books that have been keep me busy lately.
1. The Hunger Games – I started this book, which is the first of a three book series, two weeks ago. And I have already finished it. And I have finished Catching Fire, the second book in the series. And I have finished Mockingjay, the third book in the series. Yep, obsessed. Do yourself a favor and get lost in this series. You might lose a couple of weeks, but you will rediscover your childlike love for reading.
“…a superb tale of physical adventure, political suspense, and romance.” Booklist
2. Streams in the Desert - A couple of weeks ago Amanda suggested I pick up a copy of this timeless devotional by L.B. Cowman. And I am LOVING IT. Every day I find comforting words that offer truth and perspective. It is a powerful daily read for anyone who is struggling. And if you are like me, you know someone that is struggling, or more likely, lots of someones who are struggling.
“Fresh water from a time-tested fountainhead of faith” Gary Smalley
3. Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me: A Memoir…of Sorts – I read Ian Cron’s stunningly beautiful memoir a couple of months ago. It’s about time to read it again. It is that good. I know it’s not out until June, but you should go ahead and pre-order it. I guarantee you won’t regret it.
“Simply the best memoir I have read in years. It is engaging, clever, heartbreaking, and God-drenched in all the right ways.” Phyllis Tickle
