Summer Reading List

Did you make a summer reading list? I've decided to read more over this summer so I bought a bunch of books to help give me the incentive to read. Before I started blogging, I would read a lot over the summer but with the blogs, I have less time to read. Now I'm going to discipline myself to take the time to read. I've already read one of the books on the list and have started two of the others so I'm off to a pretty good start. I think you'll find the list a little eclectic, certainly a range of genres.

Death Match by Lincoln Child -- I just finished this one and will be posting a review for it soon (I hope). It was pretty good even though I figured it out almost immediately.
The Birth of the Church and A Public Faith by Ivor J. Davidson -- as I mentioned here, these are texts for my Ancient Church class that I plan to read over the summer.
The Spirit of Early Christian Thought by Robert Louis Wilken -- also a textbook.
Emergence of the Catholic Tradition: 100-600 by Jaroslav Pelikan -- as is this one.
The Gospel and Revelation by Graeme Goldsworthy -- I plan to work on Revelation over the summer because I actually do intend to post my study online eventually.
Reasons for Faith: Philosophy in the Service of Theology by Scott Oliphint -- I love Oliphint, he's pretty brilliant. I'm trying to review my apologetics class over the summer, I thought the book would help.
Sign of the Cross by Chris Kuzneski
The Serial Killers Club by Jeff Povey -- This book looked pretty weird, it's the story of a serial killer killing other serial killers.
The Book of Fate by Brad Meltzer -- I'm reading this now and it's pretty good so far. It pulls you into the story quickly and is fast paced (clinched but true).
Pattern Recognition by William Gibson -- I haven't read Gibson in years and I thought I would give his latest a try.
Gospel Truths by J. G. Sandom
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson

I will try to post a review of each of book if I actually read them over the summer :-)

    That's probably smart. I think I have too many books on my list :-)
