Due Back...

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. -C.S Lewis

Lady Susan by Jane Austen. I had never even heard of this book until my friend mentioned it. It was okay, not nearly as good as her others. I think because it was much shorter and the characters were never really developed.

Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. This book was SO good! I might have to get myself a copy of it. I often find myself thinking about many of the concepts and ideas in it.

The Secret by Beverly Lewis. This is the first in her Seasons of Grace series. It was good, I really like the variety of characters in this one and can't wait until the next one is out.

London Refrain by Bodie and Brock Thoene. Number 7 in the Zion Covenant series. This is one of my favorite series ever, so I was excited to see there were three new books added. This was very good, just like the rest of the series.

Paris Encore by Bodie and Brock Thoene. Number 8 in the Zion Covenant. Very good! I'm going to start number nine as soon as I finish updating this blog!

Match Day: One Day and One Dramatic Year in the Lives of Three New Doctors by Brian Eule. As I'm sure I mentioned, I love books about medical school and residency. This book focused on "match day" which is a huge event in the life of a medical student when they learn where they will be doing their residency. At first, I couldn't believe there would be enough about "match day" to write a book, but by the middle of the book I couldn't not wait to see where these doctors had matched!

Plain Girl by Virginia Sorensen. This was a cute book I found at Goodwill about an Amish girl who has to go to school at a regular public school where no other Amish children attend.
