Good quote from the book I am reading, How to Find Yourself - Why Looking Inward Is Not the Answer by Brian Rosner

Age of Empyre | Michael J. Sullivan

This last book had a lot to accomplish. There are aspects of how everything ended that I love and a few parts that I wish would have gone differently. It was an engaging series and got me out of my book slump!

Age of Death | Michael J. Sullivan

This book ended on a cliffhanger, and I immediately had to download the last one of the series. The Legends of the First Empire series has brought me out of my reading slump! I listened to the audiobook, and Tim Gerard Reynolds is wonderful.

I am a layperson and don‘t have the educational background to make theological debates on points within the book. I can say that the book presented different aspects of Christ‘s humanity clearly and understandably. I am the type of person who loves to ask why and this book helped me think through lots of questions I had. I read it slowly and reflected on chapters, paragraphs, and even sentences for days!

I listened to the audiobook of Terraform and it was the best way to consume this book. Prop reads the book himself and as a spoken word artist, the audiobook turned out amazing.

I have read a fraction of the books I normally read in a year. 2021 has been worse than 2020 🙄 I did just finish this audiobook though. I loved it. It deals with tough topics but I needed a book that would address death in such a tender and beautiful way.

I really enjoy this series! There was a lot of action, all packed in at the end but it kept my attention the whole time. I am interested to see how it will come together in the next book.

I started reading Anna Karenina on Serial Reader. I am enjoying it so far! The app delivers a section each day and it helps me make my way through the classics without giving up.

I decided to reread the Stormlight series leading up to Rhythm of War. I should have started back in August like my brother did. Oh well. I am glad that I am rereading because there were details that I have forgotten over the years. I went between a hard copy of the book and the audiobook. I love this series and it is joyful to read it again!

The Hallelujah Banquet is an explanation of Revelation. I was delighted to read in the Editor‘s Note that this book was mainly created from a sermon series that Eugene had preached back in 1984. This was what I needed to read in the midst of a pandemic and an intense political season. Eugene gently speaks convicting truths while offering joyful hope. This was my first Netgalley book! I love it and plan on buying a hard copy for my library.

This is probably an unpopular opinion but I feel meh about this one 😬

Allthebookclubs I‘m almost done and I agree, but I also just found out tonight that it‘s a sequel. I‘m not sure if I‘ll go back and read the first book, I just don‘t feel connected to any of the characters. 2y

Have you ever bought a book over and over again because you kept giving it away? I bought Just Mercy, for the third time, today. This book needs to be read by as many people as possible!

@katy4peas @Marmie7 @Laughterhp - I am pretty excited to read Agatha Christie! I haven‘t read any except Murder On the Orient Express. Do any of these look good to you? I know that a couple of you have read a number of Agatha Christie‘s books.

Laughterhp I‘ve already read Ordeal by Innocence. But I‘d be interested in any of the other 3. My top choice would be Murder is Easy. 2y
Marmie7 I've read Ordeal by innocence and Towards Zero. Either of the other two would be fine. 2y

I borrowed this book from the library. I thought it was a good overall history of the church and it‘s complicity in racism. I am planning on purchasing this book for my library. I want to reference it in the future and be able to loan it out to friends.

I actually enjoyed this book. I was nervous because a lot of prequels I don‘t care for. It kept my attention the whole time and I was still able to hate Snow by the end. I thought that the narrator was good too!

This book ended up being not what I expected. I liked it, but it felt like it was more about the history of the time and how it influenced their writing, not necessarily about their friendship. For some reason I went into the book thinking it would be more about their friendship. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Desha Thanks for the review...have this on my kindle and was expecting more like you said about their friendship so will be aware going into it! 😊📚📚 2y

I attended a conference on juvenile sex trafficking and Rebecca Bender was a speaker and workshop leader. This is an intense book about her life and I honestly had to put it down a number of times. However, it is worth it to push past the anxiety. God has done an amazing work in her life and I am better for knowing her story

rjsthumbelina I have read the top 2 already. That being said, I wouldn't mind a re-read of Looking Glass Wars at all, bc I read it when it first released...which was quite some time ago! And the bottom 2 are both on my TBR already, so either would be fine with me 😊 2y
Endowarrior21 Only one that I have not read is Storm Front the other 3 were really good books. 2y
hwestfall Okay, how about Forest of Souls by Lori M. Lee , The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso or We Ride the Storm by Devin Madson? Any of those sound good or haven‘t been read? 2y

hwestfall Hopefully @Endowarrior21 and @rjsthumbelina haven‘t read some of the new ones. They all looked good. So many books and so little time 😊 2y
Endowarrior21 @hwestfall I have only read Ride the storm but I did not like it personally but the other two I have not 2y
hwestfall @Endowarrior21 I was wondering how We Ride the Storm was since it was self published. Unless @rjsthumbelina has read it I think I will choose Forest of Souls by Lori M Lee 2y
Endowarrior21 @hwestfall don‘t get me wrong it was a good book it was just not my cup of tea. 2y
rjsthumbelina Oh! Looking forward to Forest of Souls! Great choice 😊 2y
InBooksILive @hwestfall I actually had Forest of Souls on my TBR list and have been wanting to preorder it so I'm definitely looking forward to reading it! 😊 Great choice!! 2y
