This month involved books for university, but the opportunity for more leisurely reading as well, which is always a nice change.
The Island of Doctor Moreau by H.G. Wells: A disturbing science-fiction for university about a man who ends up on an island full of creatures that are neither fully human nor animal. Not something I would read again. 3 stars.
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson: Not as bad as above, and more intriguing, but still not something I would read again. 3 stars.
Grace Across the Miles by Christine Dillon: The last book of a Christian series about a young woman and her family and friends. This story covered numerous deeper topics but was still easy to read. 4 stars.
The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery: The story of a young woman who decides to take her life, and happiness, into her own hands after receiving bad news from her doctor. This was a funny little book, and I enjoyed the unfolding joy and confidence of the protagonist. 4.5 stars.
Keep a Quiet Heart by Elisabeth Elliot: A collection of short chapters broken into larger topics. Most chapters of this book proved to be helpful to me in some way – Elisabeth Elliot is wise and down to earth, and I always enjoy reading what she has to say. 5 stars.
