I loved every second of the audiobook and highly recommend it to anybody who loves magic. Or fairy tales. Or really just needs happiness in their lives.

I am only 5 minutes in and already have happy tears! Narrated and written by NPH! I LOVE books about magic especially written by magic makers, and life dreamers.

Words in Deep Blue | Cath Crowley, Wyatt North
Mehso-so

Unfortunately this book was MEH. I enjoyed the ideas of the letter library and other bookish references. But the plot, characters and over all way the writing was telling-not showing, and over predictable, as well as falling short on the big BOOM moments, was disappointing. I didn‘t hate it, I just think I would recommend.

So, this was a really quick read. It took maybe about an hour. But after that hour was over, and I turned the last page, I was in full on SOBS.
If you have ever been through a season of life, and at the end of it you find yourself questioning “what was God‘s purpose in all of this hardship?” Or even “Why did that miracle happen?” READ THIS BOOK. It will open your eyes, leave your mouth gaping and an understanding will be invoked.

This one was recommended to me for the season I am currently in. So far I love the story like way it is written in. A wonderful insight to the realities of famous names found in the Bible. And stories that are not just long languaged verses to memorize. These were real people.

It was rough to get through! I love this world and its characters-- but this story dragged on, and on. And on and on! It took forever to finish-- I love you Diane-- but I'm going to need a break before starting the next one!

I listened to this audiobook in 2 sittings. We took a long road trip so it was easy to just get lost in the book. I will say that I finished it on principle, I don't like getting half way through then quitting. I didn't dislike it, but I didn't love it either. I felt like the author was trying to hard to smash too many things together and though it was a set up for book 2, I felt like she over did it a bit. But I finished it, so go me!

It took me forever to finish this. Not just because other amazing books fell into my lap.. but it also just didn't hold me like I had hoped (especially after reading "and then there were none" as my first Christie.) either way, I finished it, and that's all that counts!

CaitlinCasillas @obviateit, the audio is wonderful! I love this book and am find ANY second I can get to listen, is worth the bribery and screaming child in the background lol 3y
obviateit LOL I'm severely auditory processing deficient, so I need complete silence when I listen. Which happens basically... never. 😂 3y
CaitlinCasillas Oh my gosh that struggle is so real!! Well... if it helps, listening to it in the dead of night and skipping much needed sleep is always an option on the table 😜 3y

Diana Gabaldon has blown my mind once again. I think my opinions on these books are turning to obsessions! I can't stop, nor do I want to!! ABSOLUTLY phenomenal writing as usual, but it just keeps going! I'm so inspired!
