1. The Guy Not Taken, Jennifer Weiner
2. Sundays at Tiffany’s, James Patterson
3. Mirror Mirror, Gregory Maguire
4. Christ the Lord: The Road to Cana, Anne Rice: spectacular. It is actually the second book in this series, the first being Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt, which I read maybe two years ago or so. I don’t know what her persuasion is religiously, but her depiction of Jesus as a man is amazing to get swept up into. Both novels are written in first-person, narrated by Jesus, called Yeshua, and somehow she has been able to capture a small taste of how He was fully God and fully man at the same time. It was splendid to get caught up in, and while it is fiction, she has based these novels on the Gospels and Gospel-based encyclopedias. It was satisfying.
Next up: The Centurion’s Wife, Davis Bunn & Janette Oke.
