Elder Leonid of Optina
I have a devotion to the Optina Fathers. This is book 1 in the series, as Father Leonid is the one who revived the practice of eldership in that monastery and made it blossom again. Almost done!
Secret Agent Brainteasers
I requested several books in the Spring, but never got a chance to read them because of all my readings for MBI2019. So I’m trying to catch up. This one is fun, though I basically can’t solve any teaser! It’s got great historical details too.
Solving Cadence Moore
A mystery I received for review some time ago. It’s all about manipulation, at different levels.
The Man That Got Away
A quirky mystery that I won, by an author I enjoyed in nonfiction.
On the Edge of the World
The classic I got for Classics Spin. “Based on a true story of an early Russian missionary Orthodox bishop’s trip to Eastern Siberia.”
If You Cross the River
On my Edelweiss shelf since May… Presented as “a modern fable about friendship, self-determination, and the power of words.”
CURRENT AND NEXT AUDIOBOOKS
Tender is the Night
I couldn’t stand The Great Gatsby, but I like the author’s writing here, despite the painful topic of mental illness.
By a French thriller author I’m looking forward to discovering.
