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! : )

  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. ❤️

My Name is Mariettal from Australia i have had a lot about Dr Zack Balo on his good work, for bringing back lost relationship but i never believe because so many spell caster scammed me because of my husband who left me over 2years and five months. so a good friend of mine introduce me to Dr Zack Balo just because my condition was so bad and the responsibility in my matrimonial home was more than me. my husband left me to another woman without giving me a good reason why he left. so i email him on his address wiseindividualspell@gmail.com and told him everything, he told me not to worry that my husband will come back to me. he only told me to believe on him that after casting the spell my husband will come back immediately and beg for forgiveness. he real did it for me and my husband come back to me in the next three days. i was very happy and thankful to Dr Zack Balo for helping me restore my marriage here is his email address wiseindividualspell@gmail.com for you to contact him today and get your own help.

  29. TESTIMONY;
    My name is Hidago Daniel. I made a promise to tell others the wonderful work of he who brought my ex girlfriend back to me. He is doctor UZOYA who is a spell doctor and was able to bring back my ex. My ex left me the very day she met her friend in my place, of which, unknowingly to her, I had nothing to do with her. She grew furious at the very sight of her friend and I was confused if she was initially mad with her. Days into weeks and weeks into months, my ex girlfriend did not speak a word to me as she went away. What was I to do? That was how i contacted doctor UZOYA on the internet who after some procedures and progress, brought back my ex. Words are not enough to express my feelings and what doctor UZOYA has done for me. He really lifted a heavy load off my chest. To all those out there, please, don't think your situation is too primitive or too hard and complicated for anyone to understand. Contact doctor UZOYA and find joy once again, contact him on; driraborspellcaster@gmail.com also talk to him on +1(301) 909 8775
