Someone asked me this week how I manage to read so many books at once and not get lost. Honestly, I’m not sure. Maybe I’m a bit off. 🙂 The best answer I have is that each is in a different genre and therefore different enough that it is easy to keep track. I mean whose gonna confuse the creepy villan (or villans depending on how you look at it) in Dekker and Peretti’s “House” with the sultry pirate wench whom God-fearing hero, Dajon Waite loves in M.L. Tyndall’s “The Red Siren”?
So on my nightstand this month are, as always, oodles of books.
The Red Siren by M.L. Tyndall – a surprising romance filled with themes of struggle, triumph, forgiveness and God’s provision even for those who do not always follow Him.
The Last Jihad by Joel C. Rosenberg – a political thriller and New York Times best seller. The first of his “The Last Days” series about end times prophecy.
A Vote of Confidence by Robin Lee Hatcher – Historical fiction set in my own home state, about a sassy, single woman Gwen Arlington who runs for mayor and her handsome opposing candidate, Morgan McKinley whose political aspirations seem completely self serving.
House by Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti – a mind bending thriller by two of the nation’s top Christian authors. I started reading this novel as a ministry to a bedridden neighbor. Please pray for the Doctor. He has developed pneumonia and I haven’t been able to see him for weeks. If you missed God’s harebrained plan for my friend click here.
Writing the Breakout Novel by Donald Maass – Nonfiction text on the craft of writing. Extremely helpful! The ideas in this reference have pushed me to think more about sharing my stories because I’ve now got the tools to market along with my passion to tell stories.
Experiencing God – Bible study workbook about knowing the will of God and understanding His purpose for your life.
Coral Moon by Brandilyn Collins – The queen of suspense spins yet another creepy tale of crime and human depravity, while all throughout weaving God’s power and presence. I’m having a hard time finishing this one because of the spiritual warfare that is involved. Not a problem for me necessarily I just can’t read it at night and that’s about the only time I can find to read. 🙂
