Books I want to Read this Year/Have Read this Year
To Have or to Be? by Erich Fromm (finished). Good. Liked it.
Justice Awakening by Byun (Finished). Basic overview. Some interesting information. Read it as a book study at church.
Tigana by Guy Gaveriel Kay (Finished). Mediocre. I remembered Kay as a master of fantasy, but it seems my standards have changed since middle school. Had one of the best minor plot twists I’ve ever read, though. Was happy it was over.
Comforts from the Cross by Fitzpatrick (In-progress)
The Hiding Place by ten Boom (Finished). Really great book. The style is just…really great. It’s a book that relates completely with the reader. Of course, a Christian wrote it, and I’m a Christian, so those parallel struggles and hardships are likely what make me able to relate so well. Will likely read it again in the future.
Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man by Johnson (Finished). Good. Ended predictably, but it served its purpose. Seemed a little too contrived and fairytale-like. Everything happened too easily.
