The first book in the Series of Unfortunate Events. I read the first three books in elementary school, but it has been so long and Netflix is coming about with a TV series in January! I need to catch up.
This series has 20+ books in it and I have read all of them except for the last two. I have liked this series for a long time, so I’m picking it up again. If I’m honest, I’m probably not going to read it this month lol.
I have only heard great things about A Torch Against the Night, which is the second book in the series. I want to read it sooo badly so it’s time I pick up the first book. Hopefully it doesn’t wreck me too much. *Fingers Crossed*
This is a collection of articles from Elisabeth Elliot’s newsletter, mostly about learning about to know God. My heart has been pretty strained lately. Any help to have my heart quieted and more rooted in Christ is welcome.
Yay for filler posts! I have been in such a reading slump, I still haven’t finished Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Isn’t that terrible?! I swear that I’m that reader who either reads a book in four hours, or doesn’t read for four months. It’s so bad.
So I am giving myself some extra time by writing this post. I’ve done a lot of moving in the past year and a half. I moved to New York City for a year, then to my mom’s house, and as of this past Sunday, I am now living at my dad’s house.Phew! It’s been crazy. I have had to pack and ship boxes three times. THREE TIMES. By the second time you pack everything up you start wondering if your stuff is really worth it, just imagine the third time.
I got rid of/donated a lot of books during the different moving sessions, and these are the books that have made it to their (for now) final destination. These lucky ducks.
Let’s start with the left side of my computer:
Nimona by Noella Stevenson
Recovering Biblical Manhood & Womenhood by Piper & Grudem
Uprooting Anger by Robert D. Jones
It’s Not What You Think by Jefferson Bethke
Passion and Purity by Elisabeth Elliot
Living The Cross Centered Life by C.J. Mahaney
When People Are Big and God is Small by Edward T. Welch
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
The Carousel Painter by Judith Miller
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
Keep a Quiet Heart by Elisabeth Elliot
Desiring God by John Piper
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
Romeo And/Or Juliet by Ryan North
Woah, that was more than I thought lol. Pardon me for not linking the titles to Amazon. Not for the right side!
This side is tiny haha.
On Our Knees by Susan J. Heck
The Swiss Family Robinson by John Wyss
Let Me Be A Woman by Elisabeth Elliot
The Giver by Lois Lowery
Something else I just realized? Only 9/19 are fiction lol even though I am more of a fiction girl than non-fiction.
So for one reason or another, these are books that are special enough to me to keep through multiple states.
