Hello friends and my fellow bookworms, today I am sharing with you the books I have been reading in April 2022. It has been another busy month, with the school’s two week Easter break inserted in the middle, where I haven’t always found as much time as I would have liked for reading, however I still have some wonderful books to talk about.
First, on Easter Sunday, I finished off my journey through the Lenten guide, Forgiven by Tim Chester (2022), that was given out at my church. This was an inspiring Christian book of short readings and discussions of the Book of Hebrews for each day of Lent, which I found easy to read and helpful for my faith. A good solid read. ⭐⭐
Next, still in the Easter break, I finished off another long-term read of a Christian non-fiction, Pray For Us by Meg Hunter-Kilmer (2021). I thought this was a very interesting read exploring the lesser-known lives of seventy-five extraordinary people whose human struggles and limitations reveal the power of God’s grace. A very good read.
Over the month, I have continued to make slow but steady progress through the weighty Victorian classic tome, Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens (1855), which was my result for The Classics Club’s 29th Spin event. I am now just over half way through this satirical and delightful tale of little Amy Dorrit and her family, which feels almost like a re-read, as I have such fond memories of the BBC’s 2008 TV series. I have also found it helpful to switch from my Kindle to a physical copy I got from the library.
Alongside all of these, I have also continued to dip in and out of the Celtic Daily Prayer: Book One by the Northumbria Community (2015) and my Holy Bible.
So in the past month I have read five books, two of which I have completed. Not bad at all, considering that April has been another busy month. As for my pick of the month that has to go to Pray For Us by Meg Hunter-Kilmer! 🏆
