What I Am Doing 8/24/14

Okay! Time for a What I Am Doing post!
This will be brief.
I was just to the library so I am suddenly inspired to share what I have been reading/watching/listening to.

What I’m Reading:

Surrender by Carmen Marcoux: This is a very Christian book about romance, and how to have a good, healthy, clean relationship in today’s world while following the journeys of several characters. It mainly circulates around the Collins family, a large catholic homeschooling family who live in Saskatoon Canada, and includes a lot of their friends.

A Soldier’s Secret by Marissa Moss: This is a book based on the true story of Sarah Edmonds, a young girl who dressed as a man and fought in the Civil War. Incredibly interesting.

Violins of Autumn by Amy McAuley : I just got this one from the library. It’s about a young girl during World War II who lies about her age to become a British spy and is sent into the heart of enemy territory in France to help train rebels.

The Life of Faustina Kowalska by Sister Sophia Michalenko : A biography of St. Faustina. It includes a lot of passages from her diary, and is very interesting.

Divided We Fall by Trent Reedy: This is an alternate world story that sounded supper cool. It’s about this boy who enlisted in the Idaho National Guard. His whole life changes when he receives to different orders. one from the Idaho governor to kill the president, the other from the president to kill the Idaho governor. I haven’t started it yet, but I will as soon as I finish Violins of Autumn.

What I’m Watching:

Doctor Who: You just had to know that one was coming. 🙂 Just finished season 7 and I am pretty sure I traumatized my younger siblings I pulled down into this black hole of love and misery with me.

Pride and Prejudice 2005: I don’t care what people say, I love this movie. I like the music, the costumes, the actors, and the acting. I also love the BBC series, though I regret to say I have yet to sit down and watch it all the way through, because my Mom likes to watch it without me. I just happen to love the 2005 version just as much.

Atonement: I have only seen the last half of this, and my Mom and I have been dying to see the rest. I finally got it from the library, and will be watching it some time this week.

Desolation of Smaug: Just got this from the library, and I haven’t seen it since December 1 So excited to watch this again!

The Odd Life of Timothy Green: Another library movie. I’ve wanted to watch it for a while, but haven’t yet.

What I’m Listening To:

Frozen Soundtrack
Doctor Who Soundtrack
Pride and Prejudice 2005 soundtrack
Linkin Park
Another Cinderella Story Soundtrack
Lent at Ephesus (It was the only Benedictines CD we had in the car this morning… for the record I do not like listening to Lenten CDs outside of lent)

That is all. Have a blessed Sunday!

  1. We *just* finished Doctor Who with Matt Smith to be ready for the new Doctor. It was ok, he never grew on me like others but it felt good to have it all done and ready for the new guy! PS: P&P from 2005 is my fave too! I loved the way it was filmed and the long shots with all the activity going on. The soundtrack is one of my faves! I listen to it when I sew 🙂
