Top 5 – Books 2019

My favorites from my 2019 reading

#1 Jane Eyre

Charlotte Bronte’s character, Jane Eyre, will always hold a special place in my heart. She is a model of grace, virtue, and strength. Her unwavering love for her almost formidable lover, is amiable and right.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

#2 Till We Have Faces

C.S. Lewis brings out the depravity of sinful, fallen man in the most despicable and emotional way. I have never been so disgusted at how well I empathized with the raw and selfish nature of a most loveable and pitiable character. Indeed, I too am Ungit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

#3 Anne of Avonlea

Oh, Anne. Seeing you grow from girlhood and into a spritely young school teacher, created such a love for a redheaded girl that one couldn’t know existed. You do bother me so, with your rejection to the idea of Gilbert Blythe as anything more than a good chum. How blind you are to a true lover.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

#4 Anne of the Island

Gil and Anne; off to school you go! Redmond holds many friends, laughs, embarrassments, and foes for our redheaded friend. Prepare to immediately be captivated by the excitement and turbulence of Anne’s college experience.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

#5 Huckleberry Finn

Good ole’ Huck and Jim. The things these two experience while living on the Mississippi river, is more than one can rekon to experience in a lifetime. Seeing a friendship grow through thick and thin, the internal warfare of Huck’s conscience, and Jim’s undying love for his little friend, are enough to melt any grown man to tears.
