Good book, very different from the tv show, almost unrecognizable. It ended a little abruptly, but it was a very easy read with an enjoyable plot.
Taking a break from reading tonight to bing this! 😍 I discovered the new episodes while searching for The Princess Bride movie. (My daughter asked me what The Princess Bride was!! 😱 #ParentingFail ) I totally plan on rectifying this grievance!
Omg in volunteering at the used book store today and someone just brought these in! Since they are older than 10 years I can buy them for 50 cents each! #winning
My favourite #nonreadingpursuit is travelling, but since I don‘t travel all that often, here is a pic of hobbies/activities I take part in when not reading.
I love paper crafting, card-making especially. Here are two of the Christmas cards I made last year.
I don‘t watch much TV, but I‘m a sucker for Hallmark shows and movies. My current favourite is When Calls the Heart. I hate cheesy novels, but love cheesy rom-coms 🤷🏻♀️ #uncannyoctober
I know this is stupid, but the author has spent an extraordinary amount of time in writing about Beth's trouble with mice. If I have to read about the agonizing death of one more mouse I'm going to DNF this book. It has nothing to do with the plot. Not a fan of animal cruelty especially when it seems superfluous. 😠
Does anyone else watch When Calls the Heart on the Hallmark channel? I loved this book while growing up. It was one of my favorites and I love the show! The last season just came to Netflix and I can't wait to watch it.
After the election, I needed some feel-good brain candy. Netflix recommended this Hallmark show about a school teacher from a rich family who loves to a small coal-mining town and falls in love with a Mountie. The first season was entertaining (albeit the least diverse TV show I have EVER seen in my life) so I gave the book a chance. It was okay but not my thing. I'd give it probably 3 stars. If you like Christian romance, give it a try.
I love this book. I read it for the first time when I was twelve or thirteen and have read it many times since then as you can tell from the tattered cover. I love the story of Elizabeth going forward to teach in the wilderness. The romance isn't my absolute favorite now that I am older but the nostalgia factor on this book is really high.
This was my first ever Jannette Oke book. I was in early high school, being homeschooled by deeply Christian parents. This was the closest I was allowed to get to "romance", but it was the adventure and courage of the characters that drew me in, I didn't see the "romance" until years later.
