I’m still plugging away at Glittering Vices by Rebecca DeYoung and Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child by Anthony Esolen both of which I highly recommend.
I finished the second Kristin Lavransdatter book and I’m taking a break before starting the third and final part of the saga.
For perhaps by 7th re-read, I thoroughly enjoyed the sappy but wonderful Anne of the Island by Lucy Maud Montgomery.
It’s by far my favorite Anne book. Probably because Anne and Gilbert FINALLY get together. And I love the little vignettes of Anne’s college days. The only downside is that reading it always makes me discontented with the miniseries and wish that they had done more of them and been more true to the books instead of conflating several to make Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel (formerly called Anne of Avonlea).
Speaking of miniseries, have you seen this yet?
It’s currently streaming on Netflix and it’s the best miniseries I’ve seen since Brideshead Revisited (the Jeremy Irons version, not the unspeakably dreadful Emma Thompson version).
Anyhow, I’ve decided my next fiction will be Brian Jacques Redwall. I read it as an 8 or 9-year-old and loved it. My best friend Eleanor is reading the series and recommended it to me. I hardly remember a thing about it so I’m excited to re-read.
