I had a very good month of reading in January and finished nine books. I had a lot of fun spending my Christmas break reading. I had some very enjoyable reads that I want to share.
From the Holocaust to Hogan’s Heroes – I love old T.V. shows and really like to watch Hogan’s Heroes. I have re-watched the seasons multiple times and one of my favorite actors was Robert Clary. I found it fascinating to read this book and learn about Robert Clary who I know very little about until I read this book.
The Ruins of Gorlan, The Burning Bridge, and The Icebound Land – These are the first three books in the Ranger Apprentice series. I enjoyed reading these books. I have to blame my brother for having really enjoyed them, which intrigued me to try them and then love them. These are a great pre-teen and teen read about a fantasy world.
Tortured for His Faith – I read this book because it sounded like a interesting story and I read The Long Walk last month, which was about a man being imprisoned in the USSR. This was a personal story that I enjoyed, especially since Popev shared his Christian encouraging experiences in his story.
Five Little Pigs – I have enjoyed reading Agatha Christie for a while and this one was pretty good. The mystery was very well written and I was not able to solve who did it until it was reveled. I think if you are an Christie lover this is going to be a good one for you.
The Rise of the Rocket Girls – This was a book that was on my list of books that I wanted to read in 2018. I was really good. It was well written and I was able to follow the storylines farewell. I think this was a good book about NASA and JPL and any scientist or history lover would like it.
I Never Promised You an Apple Orchard – This is funny, short book by Schulz that I have read many times. I decided to start the year off right and read it again. I still laughed and the old jokes, which I personally find funny.
Catch Me If You Can – I like real life stories that keep me reading, laughing, and worried. This book has it all. This book is incredible well writing in that the author, Abagnale, was a very interesting person. His early life of crime is very interesting, but also a bit scary with what he got away with. I think this is a great read for everyone because of its connectability.
