Mercy by Jodi Picoult -- A look at euthanasia and adultery. And how people change based on things that happen to them. Typing the title of this book prompted me to look up the definition of mercy: "compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one's power to punish or harm."Al Capone Shines My Shoes by Gennifer Choldenko -- I read the first of these J Fic books a couple of months ago so I figured I should read what else happened to Moose and the gang on Alcatraz island.
Who Is My Shelter? by Neta Jackson -- another book in the "House of Hope" series following the life of Gabby Fairbanks and other familiar characters from the previous books. I had to wait for book four because it was already checked out of the library. Some good reminders in this book for me.
Stuck in the Weeds: A Pilgrim on the Mississippi River and the Camino de Santiago by Paul Stutzman -- I read his book about hiking the Appalachian Trail and biking across the US so I thought reading about his journey down the Mississippi River would be a fun read. It was pretty good although [SPOILER ALERT] he didn't get very far. That was kind of surprising. I did wonder why they had a whole section on his pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago. That was pretty good, and he had some challenging words about pilgrims and trusting God that were all right.
ETA: I finished another book before the end of the month! Didn't think I would, but I did! May 31, 2016 6:43 PM
Lucy Come Home by Dave and Neta Jackson -- this book goes along with several I read this month; this story is about the homeless lady Lucy, and tells her story. I really enjoyed getting to know Lucy better.
