My book reviews

I read many kinds of books, both fiction and non-fiction, and I review all of them on Goodreads. ¬†I have a special interest in books with strong female characters and books that explore spiritual questions. ¬†Since this site is dedicated to Saint Augustine and to exploration of religious questions, I’m posting here some links to books I’ve reviewed that cover those topics. ¬†I will try to blog all my review of books of this type in the future. ¬†I put a short indication of the type of book beside the link to each full review. ¬†In putting together this list, I just realized: Wow, I have read a LOT of books that explore religious topics!

Gift of the Jews  nonfiction

Gilead fiction

Born To Be Good nonfiction

Why Evolution is True¬†Non fiction(Not really spiritual, but I get so ticked off at fellow Christians who refuse to “believe” in evolution that this book is pretty close to spiritual for me. ¬†It’s science. ¬†You don’t get to “believe” in it or not.)
