Welcome to Spring and the Spring Reading Thing!
I participated last year in the Spring Reading Thing. It was my first blog carnival venture because I had just started my blog in March of 2007. Time flies when you’re blogging!
So many books to choose from to read.
Here are my choices so far. (subject to change at the whim of this reader)
Before Green Gables – The prequel to Anne of Green Gables ~ by Budge Wilson
I’m in the process of re-reading/reading for the first time some great classics. I finally just finished reading Anne of Green Gables so I’m excited to read this new book. It is also the 100 year anniversary of Anne so I thought it was a good time to read about her instead of just watching her story.
Scarlet ~ by Stephen R. Lawhead
This is the second book in the King Raven Trilogy. The first book was Hood which I read and enjoyed. Lawhead has an interesting and rich way of bringing you history in his fiction.
Inkspell ~ by Cornelia Funke
Again this is the second book in a series. I read Inkheart a while back and it kept me engaged. Funke has been compared to Rowling.
Gentian Hill ~ by Elizabeth Goudge
Elizabeth Goudge is one of my favorite new/old writers. I am trying to get my hands on all her books. This will be my 5th book of hers I’ll have read. She is another author who develops her characters well. I compare her to George MacDonald in the way he brings a persons faith and relationship with God into the everyday.
Whose Body ~ by Dorothy Sayers
If you read mystery and haven’t read Sayers, you need to. Check out her Lord Peter Wimsey Series. This series was writtten from 1923-1935.
God is the Gospel ~ by John Piper
and right now I am finishing The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
This again is in my quest to read some classics that slipped by me…
Head over to Callapidder Days on thursday morning to see more Spring Reading Lists or to join in…
