This book I'm reading

Howdy! I'm glad you're here.  
This post probably contains run-on sentences, sentence fragments, 
affiliate links, and unnecessary ellipses.  If none of that bothers you, let's be friends.

 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.

Womp womp.

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!

  1. Lovely review - you just persuaded me to order this in from the library. Any book you could compare with The Chosen sounds promising! : )

    1. I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Doctor ABAKA brought back my husband that separated with me for one good year. Am from ROMANIA. Even though i have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank Doctor ABAKA for his help upon my life. My husband separated with me for one year and have been in pains and agony without him. So, i searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until i meant Doctor ABAKA. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 hours as far that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when Doctor ABAKA said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him...Email:drabakaspelltemple@gmail.com or visit https://drabakaspelltemple.blogspot.com.

  11. Is this the first book you've read by Rumer Godden?

    It is really great. My grandmother recommended it to me shortly after it was published. I've read it at least 3 times and we had a great discussion about it in our Catholic women's book club.

  17. Such a good book! This was my first experience of her and I was just smitten!

  18. I adore it, too! Although: without providing any spoilers, I will mention that there is a searing grief in it, so it is maybe not for a very sensitive time...

  22. Love this book! I read it for the 1st time when I was around 20. I can look back now (and that's a long way back) and say it was a life changing book for me. I think some part of me has never left Brede...

  23. I love this book too! I did NOT expect to love it when I picked it up. She gets the human experience SO WELL. Also, a gentle recommendation to prepare your mama heart to read a description of a tragic event. ❤️
