Out of the Silent Planet

I have just finished the book Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis. The story within this book is superb. We follow an intriguing man by the name of Ransom as he is forced to leave earth and travel to Malacandra. He spends time with the inhabitants and learns the language, while also telling these inhabitants about our earth and our ways.

It’s a wonderful adventure that I recommend to anyone. I will say this, it took me a little bit to get into, but once I was hooked, I loved every word. Now I'm off to read Perelandra.

More than a Kiss!

I have most recently finished a book coauthored by one of my favorite authors. The book is Kiss, by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy.

In this book, we follow Shauna on a journey to uncover her memory, and in the process, the truth of it all. It takes her on the adventure of a lifetime. In this adventure, we are introduced to numerous characters, all of which play some role in helping Shauna remember who she was . . . and what she was fighting for. But she also has to learn who really has her best interest at heart, and who wants her dead.

I read this book slower than usual, and I think it paid off because I got to think about each piece of the puzzle as I took the time to stop every few chapters. It got harder in the end to take a break between chapters, and I finished the last fifteen chapters rather quickly. There are things in this book that made me laugh, things that made me mad at certain characters, and things that made me go “Aww.”

This book drives in the point that you can’t just run from your past. You have to learn from it and keep yourself from making the same mistakes again.

I most definitely agree with what’s written on the back cover: “where Heart Pounding meets Heart Warming.”

So I just purchased Kiss, the book by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy. That means all other books will move to the back burner until I'm done. I've read the first six chapters already and I'm hooked as always. Apparently it's an addiction that has no cure but more.
