Let’s be honest: I read way more books than I probably should, but with the exception of college textbooks, here’s a list of the current books I’ve stuck my nose in. 🙂
To start, I’m reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I am loving it so far. I’ve seen the film (which was amazing), but I wanted to read the book as well. Plus, it was recommended reading for the Oxford summer school. I. Love. Liesel. I love her so much. This is going to be a forever favorite book, I can tell.
I am also listening to the audio book for The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. It is a reading of it, not an audio drama, and I’m only on chapter thirty-eight. It is a literary masterpiece, and I cannot wait to do a post on it. Dantes is one of my favorite literary heroes right next to Henry V and Harry Potter, and I am so anxious to discover what happens to him on this path of crooked justice he follows. Great book!
My mindfood book is currently Love Thy Body but Nancy Pearcey, and it answers the theological, philosophical, and ethical questions about life, sexuality, and controversial issues regarding self and the mind-body dualism idea. It is a fantastic read. It details the issues of abortion, euthanasia, gender dilemmas, the dangers of “hook-up” culture, marriage, and how the value of the body needs to be raised according to scripture. The body is no longer valued, and as Christians, we are to value it more than ever. The Bible commands us to.
