Howdy! I'm glad you're here.

I promised myself I would keep blogging even if I didn't have anything interesting enough to say, but then...I couldn't think of anything interesting enough to say.
Two minutes I picked up my phone to instagram the book I'm reading and I was like "okay, I can just blog this! I can just do it as if it's my blog and I can just post whatever lame thing I want!"
A bit before Christmas I asked for book recommendations for my well-read 15 year old and In this House of Brede by Rumer Godden was one of the suggestions.
This book is basically 500 pages long and she read the entire thing in two days while still keeping up with all her other things. She. Loved. It. That. Much. So I knew I had to read it, too. I'm only about 90 pages in and gosh it's just so dang beautiful. Every other page is a sentence or passage I want to read out loud to you.
If you like books about people, books that help you understand the complicated mess that is humanity and relationship, I think you will love this book. Kind of like Chaim Potok's The Chosen, except about cloistered nuns instead of orthodox Jews....? Okay, Imma stop there since, like I said, I'm only 90 pages in and I probably shouldn't be posting about a book I haven't finished reading, but it's a new day friends, where I post random things on my blog without thinking too hard about them. Weeeeeeeeeeeee!
