Hello my fellow bookworms, I hope you are all well? The weather has taken a very cold turn here in the UK, but I managed to resist the urge to stay in and hibernate. Instead I have been kept very busy with submitting my assignment for module one of the Pathways to Ministry course and then starting module two. Plus I have enjoyed a school trip to the National Space Centre in Leicester; several meetings for upcoming opportunities at church; and celebrating my birthday! Phew with all that going I am surprised I still managed to read:
Fiction: 1 Non-Fiction: 3
At the beginning of the month I finished reading Flower Fables by Louisa May Alcott; a collection of whimsical tales full of magic, fairies, love, morals and life lessons.
Alongside this one fiction, I also read three non-fictions. First, Christian non-fiction 90 Days Through the New Testament by Ron Rhodes which helpfully guides the reader through the New Testament in chronological order. Next, I read the short and concise history of Richard Nixon from Mark Black’s A Very Brief History series*, that ticked-off ‘a title with a ‘x’ in it’ for the What’s a Name 2017 challenge. Then my January read for my church’s book club was inspiring Christian non-fiction If You Want to Walk on Water You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat by John Ortberg. My full thoughts on the latter two are still to be posted.
Pick of the Month: If You Want to Walk on Water
So altogether I’ve read four books which is a pretty good start to this new year, although I am surprised that it is so non-fiction heavy. Also throughout the month I’ve been reading A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens and I started reading The Shack by William Paul Young (the February book for my church’s book club).
In February, I am looking forward to my book club meeting and a variety of nights out including a trip to the theatre to see an adaptation of Frankenstein.
What did you do and read in January? What are your plans for February?
