Literacy Musing Mondays April 24-29

My Answer: Last book: I've sort of binged on fiction in the past couple of weeks. I finished Divergent last night. My daughter asked to read it, and since I knew nothing about the series, I told her I needed to read it first. Glad I did because I don't think some of it is appropriate for an almost 12-year-old. Honestly, a couple of the scenes could have been left out entirely. (A little too much teen affection for my taste.) God's name was was thrown around a few times, too, which I don't like. Anyway, I really did like the story. I may ask my daughter if she'd want me to read it aloud minus a couple of scenes. We'll see. I probably need to do some research on the other books first, though, because I'm sure we will want to find out the rest of the story.

Right before that, I breezed through Head in the Clouds, A Sweet Misfortune: A Novel (Virtues and Vices of the Old West), Love Unexpected (Beacons of Hope).

Favorites: Y'all, it's just about impossible to narrow down favorite books, but I will try to give 5 off the top of my head.

Tuck Everlasting

Ella Enchanted (Trophy Newbery)

Anne of Green Gables, Complete 8-Book Box Set: Anne of Green Gables; Anne of the Island; Anne of Avonlea; Anne of Windy Poplar; Anne's House of ... Ingleside; Rainbow Valley; Rilla of Ingleside

Tahn (And the other 2 books in the series.)

Harry Potter Paperback Box Set (Books 1-7)

My Favorite childhood Books

At Our Unschooling Journey

Do you ever think about what your favorite books were when you were a child? I remember some of these books fondly too. Be sure to check out this post and share your favorite books from childhood too in the comments section.

My Favorite Post of the Week

To Judge or Not to Judge?

Matthew 7:1 (you know - the judge not verse) is constantly quoted by Christians and non-Christians alike, but it's also consistently taken out of context and used incorrectly. I'm so glad Beckie has addressed this topic in her recent post! In it she helps us understand what the verse is saying and what it's not saying. She lists several ways in which Scripture says we should judge and ways we should not judge. Our motives matter, too, when it comes to judging. 

Check out Beckie's post to get a clear picture of what Biblical judging looks like.
