What I read during Summer (2014)

It’s time to talk about what I read during Summer. This time I read a little bit of everything; it was pretty interesting.

A Heart of Worship

My edition: Paperback, published March 1st 1994 by Creation House.

For my Christian readers, the first one is A Heart of Worship, by LaMar Boschman. It’s a great study about what it means to Worship in spirit and truth. It’s short, easy to read, and well researched.

This reading is for everyone who wants to know about Worship, and for those in the music ministry, it should be obligatory.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson

My edition: Paperback, published May 10th 2012 by Penguin Books Ltd.

John Green came back to my bookshelves this month with Will Grayson, Will Grayson, co-written by David Levithan.

The story revolves around a guy named Will Grayson, another guy named Will Grayson, and their friend Tiny Cooper. Both Wills meet on a night in Chicago, and a weird friendship is born when Tiny decides he wants to date the other Will Grayson.

The book is quite funny, but I can’t say I like the story. Both Will Graysons are cool, but I have a serious problem with the Tiny Cooper character, mostly because he’s arrogant, self-centred (a prick, actually), but for some reason everyone loves him. Nevertheless, I can’t say I didn’t enjoy reading it.

I recommend it only to those who are already fans of John Green or David Levithan, or just love Young Adult novels.

La noche en que Frankenstein leyó el Quijote
(The night Frankenstein read Don Quixote)

My edition: Paperback, published September 18th 2012 by Planeta.

The night Frankenstein read Don Quixote, by Santiago Posteguillo was amazing. It’s not really a story, but it presents the stories behind some of the most important literary works. Who invented the alphabet? Where was Don Quixote written? What book managed to get published during the times of the Inquisition? What would Charles Dickens do if he lived today?

It is well-written, very informative, and definitely very entertaining. A quick journey through the  history of literature, recommended for everyone who wants to know a little more about what they read.
