27. That Went Well by Terrell Harris Dougan - 211 pp
Nonfiction - I just loved the title of this book and knowing that it was a real life story about dealing with a mentally disabled sibling for many years I was intrigued. The book was a great read.

28. Consequences of Sin by Clare Langley-Hawthorne - 262 pp
Mystery - I can't remember where I heard about this one, I suspect it was here in a thread on LT. It was a good read. I suspected the truth early on and there was a bit too much swooning, but the overall plot was good and the writing was pretty well done.

29. Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo - 321 pp
This was my LT Early Reviewer copy that I got for February. It is to be published in June.

I just finished Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief too. Bit of a crash course in Greek mythology, eh?!

31. Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life by Donald S Whitney - 266 pp.
This was a great book reviewing a number of the disciplines, why they are important, and practical tips on how to do them and how to fit them into a busy life. This was the free audio book at Christianaudio.com for March. My audio book skills are improving - I don't get distracted and wander off as often as I used to.

33. The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom - 253 pp
This was wonderful. I cried a few times - how intense and how inspiring. I can't believe I waited this long to read it.

34. Peace Like a River by Leif Enger - 311 pp
Well told and I like the writing. Very interesting story about choices and consequences and how difficult it is to believe, especially for someone who wants to know they are in control of their own actions.

35. Might As Well Laugh About It Now by Marie Osmond - 301 pp
The point to the title is if you are going to laugh about it later, you might as well laugh about it now. This was a fun read, caught me up on what's happened in her life since I watched her and Donny on tv many years ago.

36. The Noticer: Sometimes, all a person needs is a little perspective by Andy Andrews. - 156 pp
This is an advance read due to be released 4/27. It was an interesting little book with some very good practical points.

37. Not Knowing Where by Oswald Chambers - 202 pp

Hello lauranav.
Not Knowing Where sounds to be a very good read. I had never heard of it and it is now on my list. I use his My Utmost for His Highest year after year for my mornings because it is just so good.
Very nice to meet you.

39. Emily Climbs by LM Montgomery - 325 pp
She's climbing - so nice that her writing is being taken seriously by the family as it starts to earn her some money.
Aunt Ruth is a character.

Aunt Ruth cracked me up. I was so proud of her when she went to bat for "Em'ly". I love the Emily books so much and I'm thrilled to see someone reading them! Can't wait to see what you think of Emily's Quest!

I finished my March ER book today - it was good, with some interesting thoughts. It is a good study of the Bible on this topic.

40. The Immigration Crisis by James Hoffmeier - 162 pp

41. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd - 302 pp
This was an interesting read and I'm glad I've done it. But it reminds me of why I read more classics than contemporary books. But that's why I did it, to get into something a bit newer and I'm glad I did.

#20 - I did find Aunt Ruth interesting. She was so ready to misunderstand Emily's motives, but you don't attack her family - it was wonderful to watch her at work!
Emily's Quest is on the list for May - I'm looking forward to it.

I love Sue Monk Kidd and just wish she had more out there. She and Kris Radish are 2 of my favorite contemporary female writers because I find them interesting and they (esp. Radish) absolutely crack me up to the point of a stitch in the side. She makes me wish that I had/have some really good girlfriends to be stupid with.

42. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - 323 pp
This book was wonderful! I don't know why I've never read it before. I have vague memories of seeing the movie, but the book was great. So much is packed in there but it such an easy and engaging read.

43. The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett - 120 pp
Very enjoyable read that I think does a good job capturing the growing desire to read and the feelings of never catching up. And as we would expect with someone as special as the Queen, she grows and changes as a result of it.

44. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Worthwhile - very good story and well told. I'm glad I read it.

45. The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy
Always good.

46. The Shack by William Young - 250 pp
So, now I've read it.

47. Losing Mum and Pup by Christopher Buckley - 251 pp
Great book with wonderful stories about their lives and about dealing with both their deaths in less than a year.

48. Spectacular Sins by John Piper - 112 pp
Very good book with some honest discussion of why God allows sin.
I'm also listening to Foxe's Book of Martyrs from Christian Audio this month and given the ongoing list of man's inhumanity to man, it was a comfort to be reading this book at the same time to give some perspective and biblical grounding amidst all the bloodshed.

52. How Long, O Lord by D. A. Carson - 240 pp
Very good book on suffering - how serious it is, how to prepare for it, how to reconcile it with faith in a sovereign God.
