I managed to get a few novels in at the beginning and end of the year, including Pride and Prejudice,
The Hunger Games trilogy, Gathering Blue
(a pseudo-sequel to The Giver
) and The Children of Hurin
, which I just finished yesterday. Otherwise it was a lot of theological reading for graduate school, the highlights of which included Jonathan Edwards's biography by George Marsden, Prayer
by Hans Urs von Balthasar, For the Life of the World
by Alexander Schmemann, Life Together
by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and some classic pastoral manuals by Gregory the Great, Richard Baxter, Philipp Spener, among others. I'm going to try to sneak a few more novels in this year, just to break up the school reading.
I also was able to read a lot about George Herbert for a project, which made my English Lit undergrad heart happy.
