As part of my September reset, I decided developing a reading plan is as important for an aspiring book blogger to solidify and set a firm agenda for the books I want to read and review for the final quarter of 2019.
My list consists of 7 books I hope to read and review by year’s end. That might not sound particularly ambitious, but my schedule has become quite packed this school year so for me, it’s pretty ambitious. The only reason I even hope to finish is that three of the books on this list are in the process of being read. Two of them are near the halfway point.
Here’s the fourth quarter reading queue (not to be at all tinkered with by distraction or whimsy!):
- In His Steps by Charles M. Sheldon I’m already halfway through this 1896 Christian novel. It’s available for free on Kindle, and online via Gutenberg.
- Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen is also available online via Gutenberg. Of course, I own it in hard copy.
- The Mind of the Maker by Dorothy Sayers examines the early Christian creeds.
- Meet Generation Z, by James Emery White, which we discussed in a previous Coming Attractions post.
Nonfiction or Historical
- Setting the Record Straight: African-American History in Black and White, by David Barton. I’m more than halfway done with this one as well, so expect a review soon.
- The White Horse King: The Life of King Alfred the Great, by Benjamin R. Merkle. This one is probably going to take the most time and be the last book review of 2019.
- The Offline Dating Method by Camille Virgina is a soon-to-be-released manual to help women break away from the online dating nightmare and learn how to attract and connect with men in the real world. The early reviews seem to indicate that this author’s approach is helpful when it comes to real world socialization in general, and not just romantic connections. Being blissfully married with a robust social life myself, I’m interested in this book for reasons of curiosity and to examine its viability.
