Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas
This is definitely one of my favorite books. A detailed biography of a truly Godly man who was willing to stand up against Hitler and defend everything that is right.
Saint Augustine: Confessions
Peter the Great: His Life and World
This is the most exciting history book you will ever read. Some history events can be boring especially when it comes to war descriptions, but here you actually find it easy and enjoyable to read. Especially growing up in Russia, this book is very close to home. Saint Petersburg is my favorite city in the world, and it's amazing to read about the sequence of events that led to the building of the city on the swampy ground and its significance in turning the Russian Empire towards the West.
The Inferno by Dante
I read this book about 15 years ago when I was in high school. I honestly don't remember much, so I've decided to read it again with a more mature perspective on Dante's masterpiece.
I am linking up my list to Sarah Mae’s 2012 reading list.
