I am currently reading three wonderful books. Below I will let you know what they each are about and my opinion.
1. The Lord of The Rings (50th anniversary edition) by J.R.R. Tolkien: Frodo Baggins knew the Ringwraiths were searching for him – and the Ring of Power he bore that would enable Sauron to destroy all that was good in Middle-earth. Now it was up to Frodo and his faithful servant Sam to carry the Ring to where it could be detroyed – in the very center of Sauron’s dark kingdom. (Summary for The Fellowship of the Ring)
My thoughts: I have the 50th anniversary edition which is all the three books inside: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. Its 1,178 pages and I am still in the first book. But I love it. It’s so full of details and emotions. Its like if Hobbits and Elves actually did exist. LOVE=This book. More will come once I review this book. P.S. I can tell that Peter Jackson tried as hard as possible to make the movie accurately. And I LOVE the movies :).
2. Quien es el anticristo?(Who is the Antichrist?) by Mark Hitchcock: With the growing interest in the Antichrist these days, curiosity runs high for both Christians and unbelievers–with good reason. In books, movies, and even everyday conversation, so many ideas about who he is, what he will do, and the timing of his arrival abound that it’s difficult to separate biblical fact from human speculation.
Bestselling Bible prophecy expert Mark Hitchcock looks to the one source readers can trust–the Bible–and answers questions such as…
Where will the Antichrist come from?
When will he appear on earth’s stage?
What is the significance of the number 666?
How will he rise to power, and what will finally happen to him?
Will we know who he is before the rapture happens?
Using a friendly question-and-answer format, Mark takes readers on a fascinating tour of all the Bible’s key passages about the Antichrist–and shares how this information applies to their lives today.
My Thoughts: The book was translated into Spanish but it is originally in English. I just started reading it and I have learned so much. As a believer in Christ it is good to know and read about popular topics like these. I do believe that the Christian church will disappear and the Antichrist will come to this world. It’s not a book that scares me because I know where I am going but it is a book that has alerted me and has taught me a lot. I can’t wait to review it :).
3. The Secrect Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever by Julia Quinn: 2 March 1810 . . . Today, I fell in love.
At the age of ten, Miranda Cheever showed no signs of Great Beauty. And even at ten, Miranda learned to accept the expectations society held for her—until the afternoon when Nigel Bevelstoke, the handsome and dashing Viscount Turner, solemnly kissed her hand and promised her that one day she would grow into herself, that one day she would be as beautiful as she already was smart. And even at ten, Miranda knew she would love him forever.
But the years that followed were as cruel to Turner as they were kind to Miranda. She is as intriguing as the viscount boldly predicted on that memorable day—while he is a lonely, bitter man, crushed by a devastating loss. But Miranda has never forgotten the truth she set down on paper all those years earlier—and she will not allow the love that is her destiny to slip lightly through her fingers . . .
My thoughts: I LOVE this book. I have read it more than five times because it is one of my favorite historical romances. I did review this on goodreads but not here. I just wanted to say that when you read this book you will laugh, cry, scream, and smile. Its a very fun book that I can read over and over.
In conclusion: I think that everyone should read these books. It just depends on what type of books you enjoy. But these are definitely five stars.
The point of this post is to let you all know about some really good books that in the end you might enjoy! 🙂
