I think my last edition of What We're Reading was back in June.... oh how things have changed! I'm not reading as much as I was back then, but here are some of the titles I have been browsing in the last several weeks.
Pierced by a Sword & Conceived Without Sin by Bud Macfarlane, Jr. Similar styles, but totally different topics from this Catholic fiction author. Pierced by a Sword is more action packed and Conceived Without Sin is more dramatic. Pierced by a Sword was a bedrest gift from a friend that I didn't get a chance to read at the time but then once I started it, I couldn't put it down.
Amish 2nd Christmas. A collection of four Amish fiction Christmas stories. This was a BookLook Bloggers title, my review is here.
Listen to Your Blessed Mother by Gary Zimak. This is a commentary on Mary in scripture. The sections are divided between her spoken words, unspoken words, actions. I'm only barely starting this one, but I like what I have read so far.
The Story of a Soul by St. Therese of Lisieux
The New Rosary in Scripture by Edward Sri. This is not actually a new book, but Tim and I wanted a grown-up book to work through together while we are focusing on the rosary with the kids in our family devotional and study time.
Six Steps for Managing Loss: A Catholic Guide Through Grief by Terence P Curley. Kind of self explanatory, but this book was recommended (and two copies gifted) by a coworker of Tim's. Since I'm definitely still on step one, I think this one will grace my nightstand for some time to come.
Grief: A Mama's Unwanted Journey by Shelley Ramsey. Another BookLook Blogger title, you can read my review here.
In the Queue
Trusting God with St. Therese by Connie Rossini. I read this one while I was on bedrest and I feel like I want to read it again after I finish Story of a Soul. My original thoughts here.
Bella's Gift by the Santorums. This is another BookLook Blogger title I am looking forward to starting soon.
