This was a tough spring and summer for all of us. At the beginning of the pandemic, I had read everything about the virus and tried to stay up to date with symptoms and recommendations from the Ministry of Health. I couldn't stay away from stories about healthcare heroes and people who had survived COVID-19. But it was all so exhausting. So I decided to read things that were uplifting and meaningful. It changed my perspective so much that I want to share some of these readings with you.

It's kind of fitting that I wanted to escape the pandemic, but I couldn't break free from people in danger. The two best books I've read recently are: The Splendid and the Vile by Eric Larson and If I Were You by Lynn Austin.

I love books about World War II and this is one of the best I've ever read. Larson writes a factual report on Winston Churchill's first year in office during World War II. It is captivating and reads like fiction. I hated to see how it ended.

Lynn gave me a pre-copy of her new book, and although I generally don't read Christian fiction, I found this book to be a page turner. Not only does she write a fascinating story, her research is great too. This book gives us interesting insights into what it would have been like to live in London during the Second World War. It was exactly what I needed to distract myself from the situation we are all in.

I've also heard great things about their Biblical fiction series Chronicles of the Kings. Because of their strong research and writing skills, these books seem to be a great way to satisfy the desire for fascinating fiction that also updates your knowledge of the Bible.

I hope you found some good things to read during this time. I would like to know what they are! Please comment with a photo and a brief description of a book that you would recommend to readers who are also interested in distracting themselves from the 24/7 news cycle.
