Hey Folkies! I have an exciting review coming up this Friday, but today I thought I'd make a list and show my Spring TBR pile. Might not finish all of them, but the dreaming is half the fun, after all, and I'm very excited to dig into these. :)
I am starting it this week. I AM STARTING IT THIS WEEK. I'm so excited. Even if it's got the worst case of backstory info-dump ever in the first 100 pages.
100 pages of backstory on side characters. Now that's a dedicated author for you.
When We Were Very Young, by A.A. Milne
I was downright enchanted by my first foray into A.A. Milne's poetry and how it brought back so many perspectives I had in my childhood. I intend to read the second one and couple it with Now We Are Six in a blog review. If you haven't read A.A. Milne's poetry, it truly is worth your attention, not to mention enjoyable.
The Inheritance, by Michael Phillips
The theology in Michael Phillips more recent books hasn't been up to par, but I decided to get this one and give it an honest shot, simply because I enjoyed his earlier books a lot. If this one has the same deep flaws, I may not finish the series, but we shall see.
What is the Gospel? by Greg Gilbert
A nifty little book on Gospel gifted to our family by my brother. There are also two other books in the series, but I'd like to start with this one because it intrigues me the most. (Just my luck, I'm probably reading them out of order.)
Freckles, by Gene Stratton-Porter
I haven't read Freckles in--three years maybe? At least two. This simply inexcusable for being one of my favorite books. Springtime seems like the perfect time to curl up with his adventures.
Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, by Eric Metaxas
One of my Big Books on the list for this year. I'd like to start soon, because I believe Bonhoeffer died in May, and it would be nice to coincide the reading of this book with the anniversary of his death. Plus, more Metaxas writing, which is always a treat.
The Sparrow Stories, by Jason McIntyre
Jason contacted me and asked me to take a look at these and review them. I'm already partway through and enjoying his writing style, so I'd like to finish these up and talk about them on the blog!
Visual Theology: Seeing and Understanding the Truth About God, by Tim Challies and Josh Byers
I am madly excited about this book--a new book illustrating the truths of God's Word in graphics and visuals and charts. It will be an amazing book to sit down with and look over. It's coming in the mail, and as soon as it arrives, I will pounce on it.
I own all the stories in this stack, but I've only read three of them: I think that makes for a nice, balanced variety coming up this Spring! I also have a couple of beta reading projects coming up, and a Secret Book to read, so that finishes the stack off nicely.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? What do you want to read this Spring?
