Frilling Friday: Reading List

By

Happy Friday!

Do you have some books you’re dying to read this summer?  I have several.  It’s been a little while since I last posted a reading list, and since I’m always reading something, I thought I’d share some of what is currently on my Kindle.

Sci-Fi/Fantasy:
Madeleine L’Engle’s Time Quintet

Oh man, how did I miss this when I was a kid?  It’s fun to read as an adult, because I think I pick up on more of the complexities than I would have at 12, but I would have loved these as a kid.  I’m currently in the midst of the second book, A Wind in the Door.  If you haven’t read them, they are classic YA lit.

Nonfiction:
Paris in Love, by Eloise James

This one was a birthday gift from Ali.  It’s a light, fun read; a memoir of the author’s year in Paris with her husband and two kids, in the form of brief essays, facebook posts, and tweets.  Interesting and lovely.  Now I’m intrigued by Eloise James, with whom I was unfamiliar, and may have to try out a novel of hers.  I think she writes primarily chick-lit romance novels (you do not hear a disparaging tone out of me; I like a good romance as much as the next gal), but she’s a Shakespeare professor, so I bet that adds a dimension to her work.

Christian Theology:
The Mosaic of Christian Belief: Twenty Centuries of Unity and Diversity

Another birthday gift, this one from Aurelia.  Dr Olson is a professor at Truett.  He has a great blog on theology, which I read from time to time.  I just started this book, and I’m looking forward to referring back to it.

Parenting:
Bringing up Bebe

I’m hearing such interesting things from friends and acquaintances about this book, that I’m not going to be able to resist it any longer.  Download.

 

I’m looking for a good, big, juicy novel to take on vacation next week.  Any suggestions?

Are you reading anything you can’t put down these days, in any genre?

 

ps: If you didn’t see yesterday’s Frilling Fashionista, Chansin, in adorable spring dresses, check her out!
