Hello my fellow bookworms! Today, I am taking part in this week’s TTT topic, which is: Books With Numbers In the Title. Having taken part in an almost identical TTT topic in 2019, I have really scratched my brain for another ten titles I have read, that are different to the ones I used before – luckily, some of my recent reads came to the rescue!
🔢 The Story of the British Isles in 100 Places by Neil Oliver – A fascinating, ambitious and wide-ranging history of Britain wonderfully told by my favourite historian and long haired Scotsman. (review)
🔢 No God But One: Allah or Jesus? by Nabeel Qureshi – The follow-up to Qureshi’s bestselling Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, that is a challenging but respectful comparison of Islam and Christianity. (review)
🔢 The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis – An insightful and comforting non-fiction that explores the nature of love from a Christian perspective, from the celebrated scholar, theologian and author. (review)
🔢 Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith – First and best instalment in a thriller series about MGB Agent Leo Demidov, as he investigates a series of gruesome child murders in the Soviet Union.
🔢 Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne – The famous nautical adventure and classic science-fiction, that follows the journey of Captain Nemo aboard his futuristic submarine, the Nautilus. (review)
🔢 A Street Cat Named Bob: How One Man and His Cat Found Hope on the Streets by James Bowen – The bestselling and heart-warming story of the life-saving friendship between a former drug addict and a stray cat.
🔢 The Secret of Platform 13 by Eva Ibbotson – Yes, before Platform 9 3/4, there was Ibbotson’s inventive children’s novel about a secret doorway to a magical island, located under platform 13 of King’s Cross Station.
🔢 Seven Stages by Geoffrey Trease – A fascinating history that explores seven influential figures from the stage – from Marlowe in 1622 to Siddons in the 1900s – which made it onto my My Top 10 Books of 2017.
🔢 The Gospel in 10 Words by Paul Ellis – At a time when many are hearing mixed messages about the love of God, this very accessible Christian non-fiction is a welcome reminder of the good news revealed by Jesus.
🔢 First of the Tudors by Joanna Hickson – A brilliantly researched and written piece of historical fiction, that had me enthralled from the beginning to the end in the life of the often overlooked Jasper Tudor. (review)
