Completely unrealistic, nothing about this would happen in real life considering all the trauma. But somehow beautiful non the less. I think we all want to believe broken things can be repaired and broken people can be redeemed.

I‘m so glad I found romance novels again. It‘s nice to get lost in a story, in a relationship, and know that it will all end well.

I enjoyed this book, it‘s the first of her books I‘ve read and I‘ll be reading more.

I liked it better than I expected to and now I have exhausted all of Tessa Dare‘s books. Boo!

A Week to Be Wicked | Tessa Dare

Delicious, probably her best book. This trope is my favorite of all, the unconventional woman who is less than a standard beauty who is attractive for all sorts of other reasons but struggles to see it in herself.

I enjoyed this book, good pacing and the end left me wanting to read the next book.

My least favorite Tessa Dare book. The characters just didn‘t win me over and I never really believed the romance. First book of the year finished. 49 to go.

My book resolutions:
1. Read 50 books
2. 30% by non-white authors
3. Update Litsy more often

A great peak into the extraordinary lives of the Obamas. Listening to Michelle Obama read it was an extra treat.

The quality of the audio of this book was distracting and the ending was so abrupt, I first thought the audio jumped ahead. Otherwise, the content of the book was extremely helpful and encouraging.

I am so curious about why liberals find this book unappealing and conservatives don‘t. I found the book to be a great, if imperfect, call to have a more nimble mind.

Are you concerned about farmers? The environment? The end of the family farm? This is a really revealing book about how we got where we are.

Just okay. It didn‘t make foolish promises of positive thinking like You Are A Badass. And it wasn‘t as encouraging as The Brave Athlete. And it wasn‘t funny like any of Sarah Knight‘s books. It just was. And the reader wasn‘t a good fit.

Really good exploration into the way ancient Jews wrote and what they were trying to say and why a literal reading of the Bible actually hurts the message. #audiobook

This book is getting me excited to do another ultra. Lots of great information to get started. I have done an ultra already and this was all information I learned through experience. So if you‘re interested in running an ultra, this book is a good place to start.

The weakest of the books so far. It was one big cliff hanger with very little of anything else going on.

This was actually Rising Strong As A Spiritual Practice, an Amazon original. Not so much a book as a talk. It expanded on Rising Strong with more examples.

Shanghai Girls‘ sequel. It wasn‘t as strong but taken together it becomes obvious how important an immigration system that takes care of refugees is.

Read this book. The cadence of the narrative allows you to feel like you‘re having a conversation. The white American Church left me bereft years ago, before I ever confronted my own racist beliefs. In my continual quest to discover the true heart of God, Channing offers a better vision while opening her heart to the injustices Black people face.

This book should not have been a romance. The story was fascinating and original on its own and the romance seemed forced.

This was dozens of short narratives. Roxane‘s book is refreshing as you see how towing the party line can be exhausting and not authentic. #audiobook

I was pretty nervous when the book started out with a white family being murdered by Native Americans. But the book surprised me and turned the trope of the “murdering savages” on its head.

A good compilation and follow up to Rescuing Jesus. Though it did help to confirm I am not evangelical in any form.

Claudia Gray‘s Star Wars novels are excellent, I think because they would be excellent even outside of that universe but she weaves them into a Galaxy Far Far Away perfectly.

Not as good as What Is The Bible? It gets a little pseudoscienc-y at the end. #audiobook

The first half was better and the second half was forced. I appreciate that this Christian author tried to broach tough topics that many Christians wish not to talk about.

Much of what is in this book was where God had brought me independently through prayer and study. I was relieved to find that I wasn‘t out there, that Evangelicals with their literal interpretations of the Bible weren‘t necessarily right. #audiobook
