Followed up Terry Crews with this, and they are two totally different voices. I’m over 75% through it, based on Kindle’s calculations. White’s book, so far, is not exactly what I expected. It’s more of a “self help” book peppered with his experiences throughout his life on a farm, struggling in Hollywood, meeting his wife and starting a business. I’m actually a bit disappointed because he had the opportunity to speak to so many more people by sharing his struggles, but all he really focuses on is how hard he had it trying to become an actor. He quickly glosses over his true spiritual struggles and brushes them aside as if they were nothing.
David Johnson, from True Family Men Podcast, on a recent episode of his podcast, suggested listening to an interview with Terry Crews he had heard on the Tim Farriss Podcast. That lead me to buying this book, a memoir, of sorts, of Crews’ life and how he became the man he is today. Very fun, easy, and interesting read on Crews and the troubles he had in his youth, with no real male role models, to building his own future as he continued to ask himself, “what makes you a man?”
I’ve been wanting to read something of Sanderson’s for awhile now. After posting for opinions on my Facebook feed, I decided to start with The Way of Kings, Book I of the Starlight Archive. So far I’m interested in learning more just off the first couple of chapters.
This is the first time that I can remember having multiple books in a Currently Reading post. Four books, to be exact, and in no particular order.
The Great Rift, Book 2 in the Cycle of Arawn Trilogy by Edward W. Robertson. After finishing The White Tree, I decided I was interested enough, and deep enough into the story to continue on. I’m growing into a fan of Robertson.
This is a new one on me. I did a few searches and read a few reviews after finishing the first The Last Apprentice book, and this came up as a good choice for another new read. The Soulkeepers, Book One by G.P. Ching. I honestly haven’t cracked this one open yet, but it’s on my Kindle and I’ll probably start it this week.
I enjoy both movies and books from the Kendrick brothers. They’re the guys behind Christian based movies such as Fireproof, Courageous, War Room and a couple of others. Their start in the film industry and their faith are awesome stories, and since I am a huge fan of War Room, I wanted to pick this up and see if I couldn’t strengthen my own prayer strategies.
Finally, I came across The Dark Citadel by Michael Wallace. It’s the first book in another fantasy trilogy, and I’m hooked. 40% complete, according to Kindle measurements, and it’s really good. Love the world it takes place in and can’t wait to see how this first part ends. If you’re looking for a new fantasy series to start, I recommend this one. Plus, it’s free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
So, yeah, I’m in a reading mood right now and I’m trying to take full advantage of it. I’ve never been one to have multiple books going at one time, but it’s nice to have something to fall back on when I get a little tired of another, and vice-versa.
