Last year I finished about 20 books – this year? 1! What the heck?
I’ve been so bad at finding the time to read even though I really love it. I’ve even started on several ones, but haven’t been able to finish them because so many things happened around me. But this summer, that will change. There’s nothing better than lying in the sun with a book, or bringing it to the beach. So here’s what I’ll be reading, and a few suggestions for you as well.
This is one of the ones that I have been trying to read for what feels like forever. I really like the way it’s telling the story of WW2 from a completely new perspective. I haven’t gotten far enough into it to know if I love it though. Can’t wait to find out.
2. On the road
I bought this book a while back because I was following a rating challenge. One of the books I had to read should be by an author with the same initials as me. Surprisingly few authors begin with the letter K. But then I remembered Jack Kerouac and he’s even a well respected author, so there was o doubt in my mind. I have no idea what the book is about though.
Sometimes I like to read something completely different. Though I study Danish language and literature business really interest me as well. So this book, about the difference between so-so businesses and amazing businesses, will be a good learning read for me.
Last year, the sequel to this classic was released and created a massive stir about the glorification of the characters. Atticus Finch suddenly didn’t seem like the role model that he had always been. What people had failed to understand was, that the sequel was actually written before the first book, and thus the characters weren’t fully developed yet. Anyways, To kill a mockingbird will forever be one of my favourite books, so even if you’ve read it before, give it a re-read this summer and remember why we love it so much.
This too, is one of my favourites! It even made me cry when I read it. McEwan tells a beautiful and tragic love story in such a compelling way and with intelligent techniques that you can’t put the book down once you’ve started. Maybe I should read this one again…
Like Good to great this is a non-fiction. Written by Pastor Bill Johnson it has been one of my favourite books to read. With great insights, he teaches you how to find your strength in God, and no where else. It has been a massive help for me in different seasons, and may even deserve a re-read this summer.
