Read in 2018

  • Voyage of the Dawn Treader by CS Lewis (audio)
  • Christ the Lord Out of Egypt by Anne Rice
  • Prince Caspian by CS Lewis (audio). Yes, it’s out of order – I slept through it on our Christmas drive.
  • How to Create and Use Rubrics for Formative Assessment and Grading by Susan Brookhart. First time as instructor of record!
  • Gardening from Seed by Martha Stewart
  • Silver Chair by CS Lewis (audio)
  • Horse and His Boy  by CS Lewis (audio)
  • Magician’s Nephew by CS Lewis (audio)
  • Introduction to Rubrics by Stevens and Levi
  • Last Battle by CS Lewis (audio)
  • Managing Morning Sickness by Miriam Erick. Not actually that helpful for severe morning sickness/hyperemesis gravidarum.
  • Elantris by Brandon Sanderson (audio). Lovely.
  • Thomas Wingfold, Curate by George MacDonald. Perhaps the first MacDonald to not instantly become my new favorite – it was very slow and not fantastical enough, but still good.
  • A Sacred Sorrow by Michael Card. I probably finished the main text last year, but just now found it again and decided not to complete the appendices.
  • Changing Diapers by Kelly Wels – on cloth diapering!
  • 12 Ways Your Phone is Changing You by Tony Reinke (audio) – in which I learn a bit about digital effects on spiritual life and also that I don’t like non-fiction in audiobook format
  • Perelandra by CS Lewis
  • That Hideous Strength by CS Lewis
  • Redwall by Brian Jacques (audio)
  • Bad Blood by John Carreyrou. The story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos. A train wreck of science and ethics in which each chapter is worse than the last.
  • Buried Giant by Ishiguro. Bleak.
  • Foundation by Isaac Asimov
  • Shift by Hugh Howey, audio
  • Foundation and Empire by Isaac Asimov
  • Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne (audio). Read by Jim Dale, who makes anything awesome. Did you know it’s *not* about a hot air balloon race?
  • Second Foundation by Isaac Asimov
  • Liturgy of the Ordinary by Tish Harrison Warren
  • Children of the Fleet by Orson Scott Card. Not my favorite addition to the Ender universe.
  • What to Expect When You’re Expecting, portions
  • Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth, portions
  • Thinking Woman’s Guide to a Better Birth, portions

  • Your Love Story by William Turrentine
  • Foundation’s Edge by Isaac Asimov
  • Forward the Foundation by Isaac Asimov
  • Arcanum Unbounded by Brandon Sanderson
  • Ever by Gail Carson Levine. Have I read this before? The warki scenes are familiar. A mix of Jephthah, Gilgamesh, Disney’s Hercules, and Till We Have Faces.
  • Wonder by RJ Palacio. The movie was remarkably faithful to the book!
  • Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
  • Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder
  • Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder

  • Mary: The Second Eve by John Henry Newman
  • Foundation and Earth by Isaac Asimov
  • Whose Body? By Dorothy Sayers
  • Isaac’s Storm by Erik Larsen. A fascinating account of the Galveston hurricane of 1900.
  • On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson. Rather harder to get into than I expected.  
  • Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
  • In the Hall of the Dragon King by Stephen Lawhead. Rather predictable. His first novel; he got better!
  • God Has No Grandchildren by Leila Lawler and Castii Conubii by Pope Paul XI. Some wonderful sections about Christian marriage, the foundation of raising children to love Jesus
  • (out of order) Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams (audio)
