Weekly Geeks: Catching UP on reviews

This is the first week that I am participating in weekly geeks, this week's theme is catching up on book reviews.

1. In your blog, list any books you’ve read but haven’t reviewed yet. If you’re all caught up on reviews, maybe you could try this with whatever book(s) you hope to finish this week. (Be sure to leave a link to this post either in the comments of this post, or in the Mister Linky below.)

2. Ask your readers to ask you questions about any of the books they want. In your comments, not in their blogs. (Most likely, people who will ask you questions will be people who have read one of the books or know something about it because they want to read it.)

3. Later, take whichever questions you like from your comments and use them in a post about each book. Link to each blogger next to that blogger’s question(s).

4. Visit other Weekly Geeks and ask them some questions!

Here are the books needing to be reviewed:

A Bride in the Bargain by Deeanne Gist
The Disappearance of God: Dangerous Beliefs in the New Spiritual Openness by Albert Mohler Jr.
Eyes Wide Open: See and Live The Real You by Jud Wilhite
God's Little Princess Devotional Bible by Sheila Walsh
God Found Us You by Lisa Tawn Bergren. Illustrated by Laura J. Bryant
Circle of Friends: Lori by L. Diane Wolfe*
Love's Pursuit by Siri Mitchell*
Sir Dalton and the Shadow Heart by Chuck Black*

* Books begun not finished, but likely will be finished soon and therefore I appreciate questions :)

*Sigh* I feel like such a dork having not read (or heard of) any of these!

They seems non fiction, are they?

Becky said...

They're a mix of fiction and nonfiction.

A Bride in the Bargain is historical fiction set in the Washington (state) region in the 1870s, I believe.

God Found Us You is a picture book about adoption.

Circle of Friends: Lori, is a fiction title.

Sir Dalton is a fiction title.

The others are nonfiction.

Is the last book a mystery one? Can I know more?

What is the premise?

I think that A Bride in the Bargain sounds like an interesting story. How well, do you think, that the historical information about Washington State anno 1870's is described? Had this book given you any insights into life in Western USA at that time in history?

Like Gnoegnoe I haven't heard of any of the books on your list but I suspect you and I have very different tastes. What would be your elevator pitch to me for your favorite book on the list? My post is here.

I haven't heard of any of these books either, but The Disappearance of God one sounds intriguing. How is Spiritual Openness defined and what are some of the dangerous beliefs that it encourages?

I was raised in a Methodist home and am currently not practicing, but I remain interested in religion/spirtuality. Which of these books would you most recommend for someone like me, and why?
