Current Books (and If They’re Any Good)

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 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling. I have been working my way through the Harry Potter series, and this book is definitely the most exciting! I am particularly interested in the silver doe who made her appearance on the lake…someone’s patronus. I want to believe the best about Snape, so I think it might be his. Please do not confirm or deny my suspicions, haha! It is a really marvelous book – I’m in love with it!

I have been quite taken with Book Girl by Sarah Clarkson. It’s a delicious read about how books shape the worldview of women of all ages. How books begin to shape females as children and up until adulthood. It’s a wonderful book about books (which are oftentimes some of the best), and it has constantly reminded me of why I read good stories as a Christian. It reminds me what literature does for my soul as a female. I am loving it, and I encourage you to pick it up if you’re looking for a good read! You can visit Sarah’s blog HERE (www.sarahclarkson.com).

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 eleven. It is a literary masterpiece, and I cannot wait to do a post on it. Dantes is one of my newest literary heroes 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!
