Currently, 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 am reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, which is the story about a young woman’s journey as she discovers her identity. Jane’s perseverance, pursuit of excellence, romantic love, and acceptance is riveting and captivates the reader. Jane Eyre is probably my newest favorite Gothic British novel.
I am also engrossed in a biography by Eric Metaxas called Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy. Beginning with his birth up until a little after his execution, Metaxas paints a vivid picture of German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, including many inside stories many Bonhoeffer buffs won’t know about. It is a very well-written biography, and a book definitely worth reading (even if it is as thick as a brick).
Finally, I have been quite taken with I Kissed Dating Goodbye by Joshua Harris. As crazy as the title sounds, the book’s message is even better. Directed towards teens and young adults, Harris presents an argument any Christian will find interesting. It has led me to a new theology when it comes to romantic love, sex, and finding the man God has for me. Contrary to popular belief, it seems that without dating, you have even better chances of finding the one God made for you. I love this book, and would highly recommend it to any other high school teens and young adults!
