The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
I just finished this, actually. It’s either one of the best novels I’ve ever read… or it’s one of the best novels I’ve ever read. They call ’em classics for a reason, and this one is no exception.
Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl by N.D. Wilson
“Wide-eyed wonder in God’s spoken world.” My copy should arrive in the mail today, and I’m itching to get my hands on it. Also, just to give you heads-up, I’ll be writing a guest review of it later this month for Quieted Waters. Keep your eyes peeled… there will be a giveaway, too.
Winter’s Bone by Daniel Woodrell
I watched the movie last year and enjoyed it tremendously. While running errands in town last week, I was pleasantly surprised to find a copy of the original novel at the library. It’s a good story, so far. Bleak and gritty, too.
All Quiet On the Western Front by Eric Maria Remarque
This is supposedly “the greatest war novel of all time.” Hmmm. That’s a pretty lofty claim, so I’m suspending judgment until I’ve finished the book; at any rate, it looks to be a fascinating and provocative read.
A Place to Stand by Gene Edward Veith, Jr.
A relatively short biography of the great German reformer, Martin Luther. Veith writes in his typical straightforward and engaging style, and the book promises to be every bit as good as the other installments of the Leaders In Action series.
