This “Week’s” Books #4

It’s been ages since I’ve done one of these, but I’m hoping to resurrect my “This Week’s Books” posts again. Here’s a peek at the books I’ve been reading and plan to read in the next few weeks.

Red books: ūüôā

Books that aren’t red:

I find it amusing that the red color theme just happens to coincide perfectly with Valentine’s day. You could say¬†The Four Loves¬†fits the Valentine’s Day theme too. ūüôā

The complete list looks something like this:
The Four Loves by C. S. Lewis
Matthew for Everyone‚ÄďPart One¬†by N. T. Wright
Searching for God Knows What by Donald Miller
The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Characters of Dostoevsky: Studies from Four Novels by Richard Curle
Dostoevsky: the Making of a Novelist by Ernest J. Simmons
The Young Dostoevsky (1846-1849): A Critical Study by Victor Terras

As you can see, right now, I’m focusing on¬†Dostoevsky. I’ve finished Crime and Punishment, but it’s on the list because I’m re-reading parts and comparing my Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonky translation with the Constant Garnett translation that appears in the books I’m reading on Dostoevsky.

Speaking of lists, I’m ashamed to say, N. T. Wright’s¬†Matthew for Everyone‚ÄďPart One is still on the list. It’s been on every “This Week’s Books” post so far. ūüė¶ Obviously, I haven’t made it a priority. I’m determined to have moved on to¬†Part Two,¬†by my next “This Week’s” post.¬†

I’m looking forward to tucking into C. S. Lewis’ The Four Love’s¬†and J. D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye. They’re books I’ve been wanting to read for a long time. It was actually a toss up between Salinger’s¬†The Catcher in the Rye and¬†John Green’s Looking for Alaska.¬†I settled on The Catcher in the Rye, but I plan on devouring the rest of John Green’s novels (except for Will Grayson, Will Grayson,¬†which I don’t have)¬†as soon as I’m finished.

    Such beautifully taken photos. I love hearing about what you’re reading (or what you’re planning to read); it makes me want to plan for some quality book-reading time.
