“Every day I think, ‘Gosh, you look a bit tired today,‘ and it‘s just recently occurred to me that it‘s not that I‘m tired, it‘s that this is the way I look now.” #tooreal #awesomeread #book37of2021 #memorialbookchallenge #75bookchallenge

This was a gorgeous book that left me giddy and smiling. I laughed out loud and loved the final edition to this series.
I smiled so much! (Think a Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth situation 🥰)

This #awesomeread by #stephenfry at his finest, retelling, reintroducing, reimaging the #greekmyths via #mythos I love this witty, funny, irreverent collection of the tales of the Greek Gods. I've read the classics, and yet I think Fry has managed to capture the spirit of those times when the gods where real, exceptionally well. #booksniffer #itouchmyshelf #amreading #booksbooksbooks #booklover #bookworm #bibliophile #literature #storytelling

Although #LouisZamperini was #unbroken during his 2 years as #POW in Japan, but he was a broken man after returning home. He was constantly haunted by his wartime experiences, especially the daily torment from the #Japanese corporal, nicknamed "The Bird." He resorted to alcohol to help him cope with these #posttraumatic #stress. But he was saved by #JesusChrist and he turned his life around. He was a #remarkable man of #faith. #awesomeread

The Devil in Pew Number Seven | Rebecca Nichols Alonzo

This is a #memoir about #God, #faith, #persecution, #murder, and #forgiveness. Rebecca and her family moved to #Sellerstown, where her father served as a pastor. Her family faced persecution from one power-hungry man, Watts and his accomplice, Williams. The relentless persecution ended in tragedy and shattered both the lives of Rebecca and her brother, Daniel. Despite all this, God is good and through forgiveness, #peace is made. #awesomeread

"She was now a person who had to imagine a body she had known, a face she had loved, buried under boards, while over at the Montrose bird sanctuary, indifferent seagulls and winter birds gathered in the trees, and life continued for most things on earth as it always had."
