I polished off forty-five books cover-to-cover, including two that I wrapped-up today, during this past year (there were three others completed that were started in 2020, as well, while I have one started this year that will be completed in 2022).
I read many fine books over the course of 2021, but picked nine that I would like to especially recommend, in no particular order (you can ready my reviews on Goodreads here):
- St. Dominic’s Way of Life: A Path to Knowing and Loving God by Patrick Mary Briscoe OP and Jacob Bertrand Janczyk OP (Amazon)
- Revelation by Peter S. Williamson (Amazon)
- Benedict XVI: A Life (Vol. 1) by Peter Seewald (Amazon)
- The Memoirs of St. Peter by Michael Pakaluk (Amazon)
- Classic Catholic Meditations by Bede Jarrett (Amazon)
- St. Joseph and His World by Mike Aquilina (Amazon)
- What Christ Suffered: A Doctor’s Journey through the Passion by Thomas W. McGovern (Amazon)
- The Second World Wars by Victor Davis Hanson (Amazon)
- The Cleveland Indians by Franklin Lewis (Amazon)
A Prayer for the New Year
May the coming year be especially blessed for you.
