I’ve been meaning to share a few of the books that I’ve read recently, but I have definitely been sidetracked by all the details of our move. Today we’re actually getting our first shipment packed and sent to our climate-controlled storage; it’s the beginning of a few crazy weeks to be sure!
Despite all the busyness, I have been able to get some books read and I’ve been thankful for the escape from reality. I always read a few chapters before I go to sleep (sometimes it’s an audiobook so I’m listening as I drift off).
Here’s what I’ve read in the past month or so; they’re all available in our Amazon storefront HERE and I’ve linked to other sources below:
I don’t tend to read books right when they’re released, so I’m late to the party on Gone Girl (it was made into a movie several years ago). I read it at the beach earlier this month and it was impossible to put down–so many twists and turns!
No one is better at Christian exposition and apologetics than Ravi Zacharias and I think Jesus Among Other Gods is one of his best books. His personal story is compelling–he was born in India and raised in the Hindu faith, and tried to commit suicide at age seventeen. He died last month after a wonderfully long and faithful life, and so I’ve found myself returning to his books (especially the audio versions; I love listening to his accent).
Memoirs of a Geisha is over twenty years old (I told you that I don’t read things when they’re “hot”!) and I just re-read it again. Memory served; it’s still excellent and haunting.
A Heart Set Free is the first in a series of three (so far); if you like historical fiction from a Christian perspective, you’ll enjoy this love story set in the colony of Virginia. Full disclosure: the author is my stepmother!

I expect I’ll have a bunch of new suggestions after we get through our quarantine in Germany; in the meantime, please let me know if you have questions about any of these books. Thanks for stopping by!
