Welcome to my blog!
My name is Retha Groenewald, and I am from beautiful South Africa. This is my first Armchair BEA, and I am sitting on two, no three chairs, an author’s chair, a blogger’s chair and a reader’s chair.
During June 2012 I entered the blogging world with my first blog, Discover Bible Treasure. A month later I launched Bible Fascination. I love reading and since February this year, I began blogging reviews about the books that I read.
The Four Faces is my first novel and was published in March 2013.
I am taking part in a lot of reading challenges in 2013. From my To-Be-Read piles and book review sites, I have read some remarkable books this year. Trying to choose my favorite book is an impossible task. The next best thing I could do was to create Great Christian Variety, a list on Goodreads. The list contains the books I have read in 2013, and have given 4 or 5 stars.
My favourite post is probably the one containing the excerpt from the first chapter of The Four Faces. The joy I felt when I published the post, knowing my book have been published, was a phenomenal feeling!
Genre: Classic Literature
Regarding the genre discussion around classic literature, I am referring you to my author’s blog. The moles did a great job in selecting some my favourite classics. Here is a copy of the list.
List of classic books we like and recommend:
- Anna Karenina by Loy Tolstoy
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
- The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodr Dostoyevsky
- The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolken
