Faith 'n' Fiction Saturday: What are you reading now?


Please note: There will be no Faith 'n' Fiction next Saturday July 4th.

Since it's summer and participation has been really low let's have a freebie day...tell me in comments what you're reading now and whether or not you'd recommend it. Also let me now if you think Faith 'n' Fiction Saturday should take a summer break--I still have plenty of ideas for discussion, but would rather have more people around to discuss!

I'm about 2/3 of the way through The Vanishing Sculptor by Donita K Paul. It is a standalone but companion to her Dragonkeeper series. I definitely recommend both this and the companion series. I've only read the 5th book of the series and soon this one but want to catch up on all the characters in the Dragonkeeper books from the beginning one of these days.

I haven't been around much to keep up with the F~N~F posts and participate. I want to be more involved with them but haven't had the time and am trying to play catch up on a stack of books that I've read but not written reviews for as well as get back on track with upcoming tours and reviews I committed to. I wouldn't be against a summer hiatus for F~N~F but will try and participate as much as I can if it continues.

I'm re-reading the Gospel of John this week and then following that with the three Johns - it's a great continuation scripture study. As for fiction, finally got me a copy of the much debated over its worthiness, "Shack" - so far I'm on the "It's Great!" side - :)

Hey Amy (and everybody) I had a run in with the Google Nazis and my Free Spirit blog got zapped. I have a new blog up with my own domain now, so please stop by & see the new digs.

Hi Amy! I've just discovered Faith 'n Fiction. If you continue through Summer, I'll check in. If not, I'll see you in the Fall. I posted my list of current reads here.

Happy Saturday! Have a blessed weekend.

I'm currently reading "Change Baby". I just started it and can't really say yet whether or not I would recommend it.

My answer is up here. I'd love to see FnFS continue throughout the summer, but understand if you don't feel it's worth it. :)

Thanks for hosting every week!

Hi Amy. Right now I'm reading 2 books. I'm reading Tracie Peterson's "A Dream to Call My Own" and am really liking it. I'm also reading a non-fiction book called "Get Out of My Face!: How to Reach Angry and Unmotivated Teens With Biblical Counsel" by Rick Horne. It has been a very helpful resource as a parent with a teen who's not so easy to parent.

I enjoy F-n-F, but the last couple haven't been ones that I thought were ones I could answer or contribute to effectively. I look forward to your questions and participate when I think I have something worthwhile to share. Mine typically turn into a Sunday post since I work Saturdays.

I'm currently reading 10 Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe by Larry Osbourne. It's pretty good and I'll probably finish it today as it's a pretty quick read. I'm also re-reading Virus by Graham Watkins - a suspense, page-turning novel about a computer program that causes people to be seriously addicted to it.

I'm reading A Passion Most Pure by Julie Lessman, which I won from you! :)

I like Faith n Fiction even though I don't participate on a blog. I like reading your answers and others and sometimes replying in the comments with my own. I always check out your blog first thing on Saturdays because I know you'll have it up. ;) If you want to take a break, though, that's totally understandable!

I'm sorry I haven't been participating every week. I just get distracted on the weekends and the post I mean to write up doesn't get written. :) But I do like the weekly feature. I look forward to seeing what each weeks' topic is. I'll try to do better in the future. As for if it should take a summer break, I'll go with the majority. I'd certainly understand if you want to take a break for the summer. But if you don't, then I'll try to stick around and participate more. :)

As for what I'm reading, I just finished up Love's Pursuit by Siri Mitchell. Which means I'm in-between Christian books at the moment.

Melanie said...

Right now I decided to take a break from Christian fiction. I'm reading Th O'Reilly Factor for Kids. It's definitely interesting.

I am currently reading Red Fire. I think Faith and Fiction Saturdays are different from all the other blogs I read. I've never read Christian fic, so reading your reviews are really refreshing.

I recently finished The Lightning Thief and liked it, though I doubt that I'll read the rest of the series. I discovered the Enola Holmes mysteries (smart, spunky middle grade books about Sherlocks's younger sister) by Nancy Springer, and they're great summer reads. I'm starting The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society for a book club this week.

Renee said...

I love doing the Faith n Fiction thing every week! I've been on vacation so I haven't been able to participate lately but would like to start up again. I just received Tour de Force by Elizabeth White to read and review for a tour so I'll be starting that this week to see what I think just check my blog later in the week!

I'm almost through A Passion Most Pure. It has surely stood the test of all the wonderful reviews I've read about it. Julie thoroughly describes her characters and pull out things that tweak the heart.

I haven't really read the FNF posts until this week. I'm currently reading True Love Waits and it's not one that I can recommend for a couple of reasons. I'll have my review of it up in a few days.

Hey Amy :) I'm reading The COnfidential Life of Eugenia Cooper, thinking I wouldn't really get into it. I have been surprised - it is a fun and lighthearted read, thoroughly entertaining!

I enjoy F'N'F but rarely participate as it is on a Saturday and the weekend is my family time when I try not to be at the computer. By the time Monday rolls around, I figure it is a little late. I appreciate your effort and wish I could hop in more.
