- A Woman’s Wisdom: How the Book of Proverbs Speaks to Everything by Lydia Brownbeck: Carrie asked me to participate in an online discussion of this book and it gets top priority. Plus, it seems like it’s going to be awesome!
- The Great Hunt (#2 Wheel of Time) by Robert Jordan: I will have already completed the first book in this series The Eye of the World by the time June rolls around. The series was suggested to me by a friend from one of my book clubs. I don’t read a lot of fantasy so this is stretching my comfort zone, but so far I really have enjoyed the series. Am I allowed to say that after only one book?
- My Invented Country: A Memoir by Isabel Allende: I have to read this one for the Silver Falls Library book club. I have heard a lot about Isabel Allende, negative and positive. So, I’m interested in reading this book. I’ve heard a lot of her fiction tends to get a little raunchy, so I’m glad this one is a non fiction piece.
- Death at Wentwater Court (#1 Daisy Dalryimple) by Carola Dunn: And this is for my other book club. The discussion will be led by my friend Joy. If you’d like a sample of her writing you can find a review she did for Carrie here.
- Empire of Summer Moon: Quanah Parker and the Rise and Fall of the Comanches, the Most Powerful Indian Tribe in American History by S.C. Gwynn: I’ve been at this book for far too long. It’s actually fascinating but library books keep getting in the way of me finishing it. Joy gave me this title for Christmas.
- The Stranger by Albert Camus: The Gospel Coalition and Leland Ryken are leading a book club of sorts, and this is the first book under discussion. I believe they are already on part four or five, so I need to get going on this one.
- The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis: Well, I had this grand idea that I would read through everything C.S. Lewis wrote ever. I won’t say I’ve given that up….yet. But if I do this, I need to pick it up. I haven’t read a Lewis title since The Great Divorce.
Well, there you have it. My official reads for June. Knowing the rate I read, I’m sure there are going to be some others, but those are the ones I want/need to finish in that month.
