I’m so excited to be linking up with Modern Mrs. Darcy today. It’s my very first time to join her Twitterature round-up! Twitterature is where you can share short (think 140 characters or less) reviews of the books that you’re reading. Be sure to check out all of the great reviews. I love this mid-month book-lover’s oasis!
I shared with you a couple of weeks ago what books I’m curling up with in the month of February. This month I joined Leigh Kramer’s February reading challenge, where I’m only reading books that have been sitting on my shelf for a while. These are books that I’ve been meaning to get around to reading, but have put them off – until now.
Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality, by Donald Miller – Wowzers. How did this book fly under my radar all of these years? I loved the honest look at his early years and how he went from having a distant awareness of God to intentionally living life for Him. Can’t wait to read more by Donald Miller!
The Thirteenth Tale, by Dianne Setterfield – I’m kicking myself for not reading this book sooner. Gothic, mysterious, ghosts, and family secrets. I couldn’t put this book down, and it made me want to re-read an old favorite – Jane Eyre – again soon!
Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee, by Charles J. Shields – I am reading this book right now. Harper Lee wrote my favorite book of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird, and so I am enjoying getting to know the quiet woman who stepped out of the spotlight and never graced the world with another book.
That’s my mid-month literary news. What have you been reading this month? There’s nothing I love more than discovering more great books to add to my GoodReads list!
Have a wonderful weekend…and happy reading!
