My favourite books: B

B. Quite an inelegant, ungainly letter, as opposed to the elegant "A". 

I'd never had cause to notice this before, but not many books seem to begin with the letter "B".


Bacon Sandwiches and Salvation: An A to Z of the Christian Life. Another classic from Adrian Plass. Gently pokes fun at the quirks and foibles of us "Crazy Christians", with our often unintelligible Christianese. Never distasteful or inappropriately irreverent, however - Adrian's books always have tremendous heart beneath the wry wit and wonderful British humour.

Black as Night. Second of Regina Doman's "Fairytales retold" series. Read my review on Goodreads.

The Blue Castle. One of my all-time favourites. Read my review here. Hate that awful cover!!

Nothing of course, it just doesn't look as cool as the letter A, IMHO! :-)

Poor B! To be so ungainly after such an elegant opening letter!

I've just joined Good Reads, Elise, expressly to put my books in alphabetical order. No titles that begin with B yet! It's quite forgotten between A and C.

By the way, The Blue Castle is one Montgomery novel I've been wanting to read for a long while. I'm encouraged to see that it has received your stamp of approval. But what, pray tell, is wrong with the cover? It seems pretty enough to me, although it smacks a bit of 70s Romance novels.

Elise you have inspired me to start a list of my own on my newly started blog, growinggraciously.blogspot.com
Thanks for all your insperation. :)

Kristen, that's great! I'm going to go and have a look right now! :-)

Enbrethiliel - please friend me on goodreads! And that cover - I just think it looks like a cheesy romance novel cover, when the book itself is so much more than that.
