What I’m currently reading

This is a shortlist of the books I’m currently reading, or sortof next on the list. Some of them I’ll review here when I’m done, some will simply disappear, and some will remain here for good while, either because I got bogged down or distracted from them, or because they’re in a rotation of books I’m reading sporadically, or whenever I feel like reading them.
Some I’m using for devotional purposes, and those tend to take awhile longer for me to work through.
