Books that I read when I am not in school:
1. The Seven-Storey Mountain, by Thomas Merton
Drop everything right now and read this. I am not kidding.
2. Go Tell It on the Mountain, by James Baldwin
3. Rome Sweet Home, by Scott and Kimberly Hahn
Not really the story I was looking for but interesting. I felt that Scott’s section was more theology base and Kimberly’s section more feeling base, I am not really sure how to explain it.
4. Wheat that Springeth Green, by J.F. Powers
A book with priest, in which priest are interesting people.
5. Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell
Interesting concept but not really sure how to feel. Like all college books, college is nothing like this. Also don’t go to the same school as your twin sister. Make your own memories.
Other Things that I started:
Pastrix: The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner and Saint, by Nadia Bolz-Weber
The Lamb’s Supper: The Mass as Heaven on Earth, by Scott Hahn
Drapling a bit in theology for a while. I get to spend the whole next semester wrestling with Augustine. Who knows where I will end up in my journey. Except for the amazing expereince that I had at Mass, I went forward to recive a blessing for the first time. Had a renewal of faith moment. I want to feel that every Sunday, maybe I am just confused like my friend thinks.
