Holy Shit. I should have read a few reviews first, but I went into it blind having loved The Convenience Store book… 🤣🤦‍♀️ what did I just read??? As everyone else has said- ALL THE TRIGGERS. What a bizarre book. I guess it‘s a pick, but I wouldn‘t read it again.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I‘ve been meaning to read if for years. I saw the movie and remember enjoying it. I‘m sure the book is better. It‘s kind of one of those stories where you don‘t like any of the characters but you still loved the book.

I really can‘t believe this book isn‘t read and talked about by more people. It was very good. I‘ve had the actual book on my shelf for years and finally got around to it. I love finding hidden treasures like this. 🐉 dragons, action, steam... it‘s all there.

All the stars. ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We are so excited that it‘s a series of 4 books, hopefully all read by Tennant. I‘m going to request my library gets the rest of the series ASAP! Both my boys, 12 and 10, loved it and I loved it just as much.

I‘ve been so heartbroken during this book. Fanny is so absolutely overlooked, taken advantage of, and taken for granted thru the whole book. Mrs. Norris seems to have wanted her there simply to have someone to lord over for her entire life. Better to have left her happy at home and poor. They could have been such a joy to her, she should have been a daughter and sister to them. I am enjoying the book, it just fires me up!

My boys went back to school yesterday. 😷 They both had a great day, and said the COVID protocol wasn‘t totally terrible. This Mom was super relieved folks. We had the option of remote or in person, and with my oldest starting 7th grade football, in person made the most sense. So thankful for our wonderful school! New audiobooks for the commute!!

4thhouseontheleft Glad it was a good day for them! First day of school was yesterday for us too, but our district is all-remote right now. Five months of this and counting 😫😫 1y
Foragingfantasy @4thhouseontheleft I know. Longest spring break in history. It‘s not an easy choice to send them for in person. Part of me wished remote would have been mandated that way I didn‘t have to choose and they wouldn‘t feel the loss of that option. Oh, well. Hoping for the best. I know it‘s difficult to be the teacher. May the odds be ever in your favor. 1y

Finally have the boys reading everyday. It‘s been so hard to get on any kind of schedule. But they have taken over the folding and putting away of the laundry and started reading at least 1/2 hr a day. I call that a win. Oldest is reading the tagged book, brother is catching up on Wimpy Kid.

I don‘t read Christian fiction very often, and didn‘t realize that‘s what this was when I started. But I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed it more than I would have expected to, had I known in advance. I‘m not opposed to Christian, it just comes across cheesy most of the time.
