The Reading List: A Novel | Sara Nisha Adams

Pickpick

I loved this book. I liked the whole idea of relating through books, as really I do this all the time. I haven‘t read many of the books that they discuss, but it did make me feel like I should check them out. There were a few things I thought wrapped up a little to cleanly, but it didn‘t matter to me as I could feel the heart of the book. If you like books about books, I think you will like this one.

Crazeedi Sounds interesting!! 3mo
webhau1 @Crazeedi I am sure it is a situation of right book at the right time, but I really liked it. 3mo

This was a really good book. Look for the authors name if checking it out as there seems to be other books with this title. I listened to it on audio it has a great narrator but I think I would have loved either way. I got this recommendation from the Currently Reading podcast season 3 episode 47 which was a listeners press episode. I have already read a couple of great ones from the episode.

This took me a little bit to get into, but I did enjoy it. There is a Spotify playlist that goes along with it and I found it a nice touch to have that playing in the background as I read the book.

I was browsing at my local library and saw this. I enjoyed Lee Smith‘s book “Dimestore: A Writers Life” and so I thought I would check this out. Although it is titled “The Christmas Letters” I feel it is a good novella for any time. Just in case though I did read it while drinking some leftover peppermint mocha coffee.

I enjoyed this book. Trigger warnings for depression but I feel if you just read the inside flap you would be prepared for that. I appreciated the overall message. This is the first I read by this author and I really liked his writing style. I do have a book flight suggestion, there is an older movie from 1980 on HBO Max called Inside Moves with John Savage.

The Flatshare: A Novel | Beth O'Leary

I really enjoyed this. I listened on audio and it had excellent narration. It is a romance but there is more to it as there is depth. One of the main characters is a hospice nurse and there is compassion. The two main characters are dealing with some hard things, but at the same time there is humor,bright colors and great friends. My second read by this author and I have enjoyed them both!

Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax | Dorothy Gilman

I have been listening to this series on audio this week. I enjoy it because my Grandma also read Mrs Polifax. These are from the 60-70s, but to me they hold up. Nice to have a connection to something she also enjoyed reading.

Shepherds Abiding | Jan Karon

These books are always so comforting to me. Recently I have been listening to the audio version of these to go to sleep. Just so great and the version I listened to also I included Esthers Gift and Mitford Snowmen and some beautiful music included. I will always love these and although they are fictional, the author helps you to remember that nothing is too small to take to God and that you can just simply talk to Him.

I am still processing this book, as I just finished it. Such a good book. I read this in about a day as it moves at a good pace. So many people to care about in this book. The author does a great job in making you know them and care about them. ❤️

Crazeedi Oh I just loved this book! And welcome to litsy! Ask away if you have questions 1y
webhau1 I loved it also. I have actually been on Litsy for awhile. I may have requested to follow you if possibly you had reviewed this book also as I do that when it is a book I really like❤️ 1y

I have been saving the last couple books in the Mitford series for awhile even though I have read and listened to the first several books in the series many times. I enjoyed this book very much. Mitford books are like old friends to me, and every time I go back there it is like a family reunion.

From the acknowledgments. I can relate as I think the best tip for parenting is to find good friends to share experiences with and to help one another.

TrishB Me and my best friend have two kids the same age (she has a third where I don‘t though!) we have always been our own little support team through it all. Didn‘t always have the answers, but sometimes just someone to talk too. 1y

I enjoyed this book. Missy is going through a hard time. It speaks to the value of allowing people in and also to being there for them. There are a fun cast of characters including a wonderful female dog named Bob. It is a debut novel which sometimes are my favorites.

I enjoyed this book. A tribute to the relationship of a Granddaughter & Grandmother. One thing that really stood out to me was how she wanted her to place value in herself and other women. A couple of the quotes I liked: “ When the earth is cracking behind your feet, you go forward. One foot in front of the other” “If you are having a rotten day, go buy yourself an ice cream soda and a new hat”. Enjoyable and fast read.

Giver of Stars | Jojo Moyes

I enjoyed this book. I love how JoJo Moyes writes. I know there was some controversy in regards to the Book Woman of Troublesome creek. I have read both books and I found them to be very different. Historical Fiction can have overlaps and especially when the authors research the same subject. I found them both unique. I will continue to read more of her work.

Another Reece pick that I have enjoyed! I have to say she knows how to pick them. I liked this book. I loved how the scents were described and how they told a story. It made me a remember an english assignment in high school where the teacher talked about smelling something and writing a story about what it made you think of. For example, Vick‘s vapor rub, chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon, fall leaves..etc. I love how the author tells a story

I enjoyed this book. I love how the author introduces you to the people in these books. You grow to care so much for all of them. I liked reading about Father Tim‘s new temporary career and the prayerful way he goes about making decisions. I am glad I still have one to go in the series❤️

This book was just what the doctor ordered for me. It is the first of this author‘s work that I have read, and I liked her voice. I enjoyed meeting the characters in this book. I liked how between each chapter there was a short description on gardening, it was different and I liked it.

Reading “Little Fires Everywhere” while listening to the Mrs. Maisel soundtrack. Probably not a natural pairing, but hey it works🎼📖

I just finished reading this and so I am still mulling it over. I think the story behind how the author wrote it is very compelling. I do think it is well written and I do love the two main characters and also Addie‘s grandson. I think there is a lot to this with the message of how much of life can be wasted worrying about what others think. It is a good a small book and a really quick read.

This book kept coming up on a podcast that I listen to called “What should I read Next”. I am very glad to now say that I have read it and loved it. I loved reading from Francie‘s point of view and was rooting for her and her family throughout the book. I loved how reading was talked about so powerfully and as something that can save you from your circumstances.

Freespirit I have just read this and loved it. 2y
webhau1 @Freespirit me too. It reminded me of other books I read told from the child‘s perspective such as The Glass Castle or The Prize Winner of Defiance Ohio and also one of my favs Burnt Toast Makes you Sing Good (actually this book (A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is significant to the author in that memoir) 2y

I really enjoyed this book. Give it a chance! It is lighthearted in some ways and also deals with some harder topics as well. Grief, motherhood, trying to keep your job when new people take over and trying to find yourself. There are nosy neighbors, gardens and exercise ball office chairs. My first read from this author, I will read more.

I listened to this as an audiobook. The author is the narrator and is great. This was the first book I read by this author and I will read more. He is honoring his family( especially his Mom as it should be)and cooking and recipes are a part of the story. It is a longer book on audio so you for sure will need to take breaks from it, but awesome to listen to while making or eating dinner.

I really enjoyed this book. I feel like it is one that you need to allow yourself to take time with experience all of the imagery. I highly recommend it... go meet these characters, you won‘t regret it. I loved many of them, but I believe Olive, the librarian, was my favorite.
