August Reading

Here are the books I read last month:
  • The Mystery of Lawlessness by John K. Reed.  This book is the third in a trilogy, telling the story of the times before, during, and after the Flood.  Reed does an amazing job with this series.  I especially enjoyed thinking about how the longevity of these people's lives might have affected them:  they were willing to wait years or decades for things they wanted because what's a few years when you live five or six centuries?
  • Angels in the Architecture:  A Protestant Vision for Middle Earth by Douglas Jones and Douglas Wilson.  The authors make an interesting case for returning to Medieval values.  It was the Enlightenment that made women second class citizens because we are "emotional" and not capable of logical thought.  And compare the architecture we have today -- ugly skyscrapers -- versus what men built back then -- beautiful cathedrals with flying buttresses.  Those examples are just a couple to help me explain what this book is about.  It is not calling for a return to Medieval technology.
  • Dragonwitch by Anne Elisabeth Stengl.  My review is here.
  • Harriet Beamer Strikes Gold by Joyce Magnin.  You can find my review here.
  • Rules of Murder by Julianna Deering.  You can find my review here.
What have you read lately?  Please share!  I'm always looking for a good book to read.
