August Reading Roundup

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy - Eric Metaxas Katherine the Queen: The Remarkable Life of Katherine Parr, the Last Wife of Henry VIII - Linda Porter Jane the Quene (The Seymour Saga) (Volume 1) - Janet A. Wertman Thunderstruck - Erik Larson Jasper: Book Two of The Tudor Trilogy - Tony Riches The Hangman's Daughter - Lee Chadeayne, Oliver Pötzsch The Northern Queen - Kelly Evans The Heretics of De'Ath (The Chronicles of Brother Hermitage Book 1) - Howard of Warwick

Not a bad month of reading for August. Especially Bonhoeffer. Amazing book. Inspiring person. I didn't write a review of this book, but I have thought about some aspect of it every day since I finished it & have ordered Cost of Discipleship.


The Hangman's Daughter was a fun group read for More Historical than Fiction
