What I’m Reading – May 2013

I realize I’m a couple days late with this, but I did find some time to read last month in spite of freelance projects, a trip to NYC and a number of birthday celebrations.

Holding Hands, Holding Hearts

I’m about halfway through this book and it is proving to be the best and by far the most Biblical book I’ve read on dating relationships. It has convicted, challenged and encouraged me. I hope it will help me navigate dating in the future. I may write up a brief review once I’ve finished it.

Sugar Cookie Murder

Like a good cookie, sometimes you just need something sweet and delicious. I’m a huge fan of murder mysteries and this was given to me for my birthday. I breezed through it in just a few evenings and have no regrets. My brain needed the downtime. I’m also looking forward to trying out some of the cookie recipes in the book.

Emma

Regency period English prose is a beast to get through, but Jane Austen’s characters are so delighful … okay, Mr. and Mrs. Elton are not delightful, but most everyone else is. I didn’t realize Emma’s brother-in-law factors so much more prominently in the book since he is barely seen at all in film. Also Mr. George Knightley is even more wonderful in the book.

Right Ho, Jeeves

Many works of literature are available for free and this was one of the ones I added to my reader. I’ve only just started reading it and it is impossible to not read Bertie Wooster’s lines in the voice of Hugh Laurie. Who, in case you don’t know, is not only a wonderful actor, but an accomplished musician.

About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."
