As mentioned before I take part in a challenge where every month has a specific topic and I have to read at least one book according to the chosen theme. And since april just started, I wanted to tell you which books I'm going to read in the next couple of weeks. Btw the topic is religion. So I had to brainstorm a little bit to find books with a story that involves religion in some way, a book that has a religious word in the title or religious artifacts or something similar on the cover. At first I thought that this is going to be the month, were I have to use a joker topic, but after some researching, I think I found some quite promising books:

 

The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov: I wanted to read this book for a while now, and since it seems that the devil appears in the story, it's definitely a perfect fit for this month.

 

Noah by Sebastian Fitzek: It's quite a coincidence, because Noah is the book we read in a group this month. And it took me some time, until I realized that this book can be counted too, because of its title. 

 

A Canticle For Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller jr.:  Just read the description :) it has to count:

"Down the long centuries after the Flame Deluge scoured the earth clean, the monks of the Order of St. Leibowitz the Engineer kept alive the ancient knowledge. In their monastery in the Utah desert, they preserved the precious relics of their founder: the blessed blueprint, the sacred shopping list and the holy shrine of Fallout Shelter. Watched over by an immortal wanderer, they witnessed humanity's rebirth from ashes, and saw reenacted the eternal drama of the struggle between light and darkness, life and death." (source)

 

Three books are more than enough, but I'm curious which books you would have chosen. Do you have any ideas of other books I could read this month?
