I made a decision that 2023 was going to be a year where I grow spiritually. I started with this book because it is a decision we make daily to work on our relationship with the Lord, just like we work and maintain our other relationships. This was a great book to put the why and hows of these decisions in perspective. Highly recommend if you have the same goal. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Duke and I | Julia Quinn

I read the Duke & I for my book club‘s monthly selection but now I have to know the other Bridgerton siblings‘ stories too. I love that each sibling‘s story is different from the others. On to Book 6…

I watched the Netflix series and throughly enjoyed both seasons but assumed reading the book wasn‘t necessary. However, my book club decided this was the October read so I said “eh, why not?”. Well, I also enjoyed the book and found out Netflix got very creative with their version of the series. So now I have to read the next book to see how different season 2 is… 📖

Total disclosure: if I wasn‘t in my phone so much, I would be much more productive in life and I could get back to my original love, READING. My brain hurts with so much screen time. Its time to break up with the phone (social media).

This book got me out of my reading funk. If you don‘t like descriptive sex scenes, especially of non consensual kinds, stay away. Otherwise its a different kind of book that kept me engaged. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/4635953503

Revelation Revealed | Jack Van Impe
post image
Pickpick

Finished this book today. I‘ve read Revelations before on my own but this verse by verse study made it make more sense. Revelations isn‘t written in order of events but in layers, building on top of other events. If reading this book of the bible has confused or intimidated you, I totally recommend getting this to help clarify things. Very interesting and eye-opening.

BookBabe Great review! 🙌🏻 10mo

Saw this while browsing the local library. So much is written about the Nazis but what about the women that shared their lives? I‘m halfway through and finding this book really interesting.

Well researched and well written. He writes like he‘s sitting down having a conversation with you. Many of the predictions he made are coming true. If you wanna know what the MSM won‘t tell you, read this.

Longbourn | Jo Baker

Bailedbailed

Bailing....nine chapters in and not one character was interesting or likable, and the story stopped being interesting. The author‘s use of contemporary euphemisms was kinda grating (i.e. “hot and bothered”). I was so excited to read the “downstairs” version of P&P but this was a poorly executed attempt, IMO. I‘ll stick with the Jane Austen version.

Its kinda weird reading about the other side of P&P, but its also kinda interesting. Not sure if I like any of the characters yet. About to start chapter 8....

I don‘t know why so many people panned this book on Goodreads. I thought it was very interesting with a satisfactory ending. The actions of the main character made me wonder what I would do if I was in the same situation. This was a good first book from the author. I give it a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5.

I got very little done today besides finish this book. I love old Hollywood and this fit the bill. Lots of scandals, intrigue and more sexuality than I expected. I cried through the last few chapters but it had a surprising, but satisfying ending.

As a homeschooling parent, I want to educate and motivate myself to do my best in educating my kids. We lean towards the Charlotte Mason method so I‘m trying to get as much knowledge as I can on how to implement her techniques. So far I‘m really enjoying the information and her reaffirming the reasons we chose to homeschool.

It took me about a month to read because I‘ve got a lot going on and I‘m easily distracted nowadays but this was a great read based on a real Jewish family that (barely) survives WWII. If you gravitate to stories set in this time period, you need to read this one. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My goal is reading/re-reading all of JA‘s major works in 2020. Book #2 finished. Which one should I read next?

Read:
#1–Sense and Sensibility
#2–Pride and Prejudice

Thousand-Lives I‘ve only read three of her works, Persuasion being the only one you didn‘t list. I absolutely loved it. I‘ve just started Emma and enjoying it also! I‘ll be interested to see what you pick up next. 🙂 3y
Maggie_Reads @Thousand-Lives I read Persuasion and Emma many years ago. I‘m looking forward to reading them again. I started with Sense and Sensibility because I never read it but I love watching the movies and miniseries based on the book. 3y
