I am a devoted fan of the male species. They are brave, brilliant, offer endless entertainment, are good for moving heavy objects, and make the act of procreation a great deal more enjoyable. I‘d hate to see a world in which they did not exist. But sometimes they can be spectacular idiots.

The thing about lipstick, the reason it‘s so powerful, is that it is distracting. Men don‘t see the flashes of anger in your eyes or your clenched fists when you wear it. They see a woman, not a warrior, and that gives me the advantage.

Love is a choice. It is the active choosing of good for another person. But like? It is a gift and it cannot be forced.

This is a heart-warming feel-good book set in a small town. It's full of broken characters and a little magic, but love wins in the end. An easy and enjoyable read and a welcome respite from the stresses of life!

This book was a big miss for me. The writing was unrefined, there were points where it didn't flow well, and the plot was just too off the wall even for a fiction book. That being said, it certainly was full of suspense and even some romance albeit entirely unrealistic. But it's not a book I would personally recommend.

"The Warmth of Other Suns" is a brilliantly written, thoroughly researched telling of what is perhaps one of the most under taught moments of America's history. Wilkerson's character development is incredible. I feel like I know George, Ida Mae and Dr. Foster personally. I learned so much and gained invaluable perspective and hopefully increased understanding. Pick this up for yourself and give a copy to a friend. Well worth the read.

JP Robinson is a Christian author who does really well with themes such as forgiveness. This book is no exception. Forgiveness, reconciliation and redemption are all prominent. That being said, this was not as good as the first book in the series, but was still a good WWI historical fiction novel.

My favorite book of the Dublin murder squad series. Frank Mackey returns home to his dysfunctional family after a shocking discovery. The plot line of this story is incredible. Just when you think you have it all figured out, you realize you do not. French does a wonderful job building the characters and pulls you right into their lives. I'm excited to check out the next book in this great series.

Last year, I read "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak. Because I enjoyed that book so much and at the recommendation of a friend, I decided to pick this book up by the same author. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It had an interesting plot with some unpredictable twists and turns, some pleasant, some not so much, but they all came together to offer a beautiful ending. It was an easy and enjoyable read, "compulsively readable" as stated on the cover.

This book was excellent! I couldn't put it down. The story was captivating, the characters were so interesting, and I didn't want it to end. This is the second book I've read by Kate Quinn, the first being The Huntress, and it certainly won't be the last. Such talented and well-thought out writing.

Overall, I liked this book. There were a few moments where it felt long, but in the end I was left wanting more. It contained interesting characters and unpredictability. There was a deepness to this book that I didn't expect when I began reading it, but it was so well written. Not a quick read, but a worthwhile read for sure.

My local library opened for the year yesterday. Picked up my haul. I love the library. What was your favorite book you read in 2020? While I read several excellent books, "Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project" by Jack Mayer was one of my favorites. It shows the impact that one person can leave on this world and was nothing short of inspirational.
