Favorite Reads 2021

…..in no particular order.

Shoutin' in the Fire: An American Epistle

Shoutin’ in the Fire: An American Epistle – Dante Stewart (audio) Loved the poetry of his writing and audio made it even better.)

The Making of Biblical Womanhood: How the Subjugation of Women Became Gospel Truth

The Making of Biblical Womanhood: How the Subjugation of Women Became Gospel Truth – Beth Allison Barr (audio) Definitely recommended. I probably need to re-read to take it all in.

How the Word Is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America

How the Word Is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America – Clint Smith (audio)

Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents

Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents – Isabel Wilkerson (audio) Excellent and read her other book, too. (The Warmth of Other Suns)

Somebody's Daughter

Somebody’s Daughter – Ashley C Ford (print) I like memoirs and this was a good one.

Stranger Planet (Strange Planet, #2)

Stranger Planet (Strange Planet, #2) Nathan Pyle (print) As good as his first one. He makes me smile.

Faith after Doubt: Why Your Beliefs Stopped Working and What to Do about It

Faith after Doubt: Why Your Beliefs Stopped Working and What to Do about It – Brian McLaren (print) More Brian McLaren please. (podcasts, too)

I Hope This Finds You Well

I Hope This Finds You Well – Kate Baer (print) I’ve loved Kate’s poetry since I discovered her years ago. Happy that she’s been published now (and this is book 2).

Also – Returning to Greg Iles and his back list have provided some of the most entertaining fiction this year. He tells a great story and I’m reading through the Penn Cage series. Nice to know I can still manage a long book if it’s so very good.
