The Secret Chord: A Novel | Geraldine Brooks

#BookedInTime #BiblicalFiction

I gave it 5 ⭐️ Amazing storytelling, but the violence was difficult to read.
It is the story, told through Nathan the prophet, of King David from young child, to boy hero with a sling, to soldier, becoming king and ruler. This account sees him as both hero and an extremely flawed man.

Itchyfeetreader Oh I love this author .. I have a different book for this but suspect I won‘t get to it until next month. May has been all sorts of not what I planned ! 3d
Cuilin @Itchyfeetreader Every year I‘m surprised at how busy the month of May is. 3d
Aimeesue Great review! 3d
julieclair I think I actually have a copy of this buried somewhere in my bookshelves. 3d
Cuilin @julieclair it took me a little while to get into it. Glad I stuck with it. 2d
Cuilin @Aimeesue thanks 😊 2d
julieclair I dug around and found it on my shelf last night. Since I have only just started the book I had planned to read, I‘m going to switch to this one instead. Thanks for the heads up about sticking with it. 2d
Cuilin @julieclair I feel I would do you a disservice to also not give some trigger warnings for violence and rape. But I think the telling of the tale is worth the read. 2d
julieclair Thank you for the warning. I may skim over those scenes. 2d

Back to my #BookedInTime read. Picking up where I left off with Ruth's story.

And yay! The weather is finally cooperating for reading in my new outdoor space ☀️😎

Bookwomble That looks like a tranquil, blissed-out reading space 😌 6d
Crazeedi What a lovely reading nook! 6d
TheBookgeekFrau @Bookwomble Thank you; and you hit the nail on the head! 😊 6d

Read4life Woohoo! So happy the weather is good you can enjoy it. 6d
bookandbedandtea How wonderful! I'm enjoying my (semi)outdoor space at the moment too! (It's our back porch 🤷‍♀️😁) 6d
TheBookgeekFrau @bookandbedandtea I love the pix you've posted of your back porch; it looks so cozy!! The winds started kicking up shortly after I posted and I'm now watching some dark clouds making their way over Pikes Peak. I think it's a sign that there's things other than reading that need seeing to 😂 6d
TheBookgeekFrau @Read4life Thank you; me too! 6d

Tagged was best of the week.

I read six books, three of my May #ReadYourKindle numbers, one of my #SeriesLove24 authors and May‘s #BookedinTime #BiblicalFiction choice. A good reading week for me.



CBee I started Prophet Song a couple of weeks ago but it didn‘t grab me. I should try again as I don‘t know if it was the right time to start it 🤷‍♀️ 1w

Deblovestoread @cbee. It took a bit for me to get into, partly because I didn‘t read the blurb so spent some time trying to figure out what year it was all taking place. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1w
CBee @Deblovestoread I read the description and it looks right up my alley so, maybe I‘ll try again at some point 🤷‍♀️ 7d

Thanks for the tag @Eggs

1. Getting my first library card when I was 5 or 6 yrs.

2. The library book store and semi-annual book sale, thrift stores, and little free libraries.

3. A Line of Grace for the #BookedInTime reading challenge

I was going to read Mary, Called Magdalene by Margaret George but its size made me change my mind. I just happened across this on Libby. A short novella read by Meryl Streep imagines a different Mary than the one we think we know. 4 🌟

Cuilin Oh I totally forgot about that one. I read it a few years ago. ✅🎉 1w

Starting this for May #BookedInTime biblical fiction

Since it's 5 novellas I'm not sure if I'm going to read it straight through or break it up with some other reading 🤷🏻‍♀️

Cuilin You got this 💪 Looks great. 2w
bookandbedandtea I read these years ago and remember being impressed with the way the author filled in the stories for these women. I especially liked Tamar's and Rahab's stories. 2w
TheBookgeekFrau @bookandbedandtea I'm enjoying it more than I thought. And yes, the author's storytelling is very impressive given the scraps she had to work with! 2w

#BookReport and #WeeklyForecast combo post

I wasn‘t a very productive reader this week. I only finished one audiobook. I barely made progress on any of my already in progress books and didn‘t even start my one #BookedInTime from last week. Even worse, the next book for book club has been chosen so now I have *two* up next books. #SlowReaderProblems.

repost for @julieclair @Cuilin

If anyone is interested in tracking your #BookedInTime reading, I have created a Booked In Time Challenge on StoryGraph. It is not a public challenge (so it won‘t show up in a search on SG), but anyone with the link can join:


Feel free to join!

DestinyMorna Joined! This should be fun! 2w
julieclair Thanks for the re-post! 2w
