Book Review: The Beekeeper’s Promise

I've been stumbling a little bit this past week or two. My schedule has been a little out of whack, with weekends that I try to keep semi-quiet being busy. It's why there was no catechism post this week and why there will be (hopefully) two next week. Then, my area had a record-breaking snowfall, … Continue reading Book Review: The Beekeeper’s Promise

Book Review: The Last of the Stanfields

I love a good mystery novel. Especially family mysteries. There's something about the layers upon layers that are found in family and historical mysteries that sucks me in and ensures I won't be putting a book down until I'm done with it. The Last of the Stanfields by Marc Levy satisfied my family mystery itch in the … Continue reading Book Review: The Last of the Stanfields

Book Review: Spurgeon’s Sorrows

Spurgeon's Sorrows by Zack Eswine gets two awards right off the bat: my first 5 star book of 2019 and the first book of 2019 to make me cry. This book has sat in the back of my mind for quite some time, and I finally purchased it late last year. When planning for January, I … Continue reading Book Review: Spurgeon’s Sorrows

Book Review: We Were Mothers

Another Kindle Unlimited read, We Were Mothers by Katie Sise was about as unexpected as they come. The description on Goodreads does not give it nearly enough justice! However, I did enjoy being very surprised through the twists and turns of this surprisingly dark story. At first glance, We Were Mothers looks like another chic lit novel. A man … Continue reading Book Review: We Were Mothers

Book Review: Armada

When I read Ready Player One for the first time a few years ago (and again last year in preparation for the movie), it became an instant favorite. I will recommend RPO to anyone and everyone because it's just that good. You don't have to be an 80's baby or a gamer to love Ready Player One. It's a book … Continue reading Book Review: Armada

Book Review: What Have You Done

At the beginning of January, I reactivated my Kindle Unlimited membership. Amazon Prime had a deal going for it, so I decided it would be a good time to renew. I'll probably deactivate once my deal is up (I use it primarily for audiobooks and I have access to those through my library for free), … Continue reading Book Review: What Have You Done

Book Review: Rock Needs River

I received Rock Needs River by Vanessa McGrady from Kindle First, a perk of Amazon Prime that allows Prime members to chose one book to have for free before it is published. Adoption holds a special place in my heart (as it does for many!) so this book was an obvious choice for me. I … Continue reading Book Review: Rock Needs River

Book Review: True Places

Every month, Amazon Prime customers get to participate in Kindle First. This perk of Amazon Prime means each month, I get to choose one Kindle book that will be released the next month to have for free. I have found many interesting books this way, and it ensures that I always have something in my … Continue reading Book Review: True Places

Book Review: Ripper: The Secret Life of Walter Sickert

I have a confession to make: I am a terrible true crime fan. I love listening to My Favorite Murder and if I'm ever in a hotel, Dateline and The First 48 are shows I jump at watching. But I don't always keep up with famous murders, unless they are directly in my radar (thank … Continue reading Book Review: Ripper: The Secret Life of Walter Sickert

Book Review: Hemingway Didn’t Say That

Have you ever heard a quote attributed to a specific person and thought, "did they really say that?" Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and other social media outlets circulate countless sayings supposedly coined by Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Abraham Lincoln, and many others. Oftentimes, the attribution alone seems to give the quote more clout. But did they … Continue reading Book Review: Hemingway Didn’t Say That
