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. ❤️

  25. I remember in 2023, my credit score was terrible, I had so many collection accounts and would not approve of anything. I had rental debt, charge offs, student loans, tax liens from my credit report. I was then introduced to DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION by Michael Wayne who is my attorney. I immediately contacted them by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM / +1 713 396 5299. Within 9 days my credit score went up from 571 to 801 across the 3 credit bureaus and I’ve been able to get a home loan and eligible for several credit cards. I will always recommend DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION to anyone who desires to have a better credit life. Cheers!

  26. Hi all! I’m 29 years old. My credit started to tank around 2021 when expenses were outpacing my income. I got a lot of loan offers and foolishly took them, adding more expenses to my income. Didn’t help that I was in a relationship with someone who I greatly outnumbered and took on the burden of the bills to seem fair. Won’t be doing that again. I had a lot of collections and charge-offs from personal loans and CCs. From looking at my Experian I had several charge-offs that became collections and few that didn’t. Which all brought down my credit score to a low 586 score. I needed advice on rebuilding my score back to 700s. DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION came through for me, my credit report cleaned up with all negative entries removed; charge-ffs and collections wiped out. Now: Jan 2024 my score is Equifax 801| TransUnion 808| Experian 811. Yes, it feels good to have a worthy credit profile. I want to use this time to appreciate DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION for bringing me out of a bad credit report that made my life miserable. My goal is to also obtain higher limits 5K-10K on CC which has finally been achieved. I’m happy to have come across DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION here, you can contact them by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM Or text 1+ (713) 396 5299.

  27. I had a $400 fresh account with Fingerhut, after realizing the amount of interest they were charging me (I didn’t know about credit at the time), I decided to close the account. I called the customer service phone number and requested the representative to close the account. Monday, January 8, 2024, I decided to check my credit report and noticed it has been open since 2020. Called the Fingerhut collection department regarding the account. How is it currently reporting open if I closed it in 2016? There’s a remaining balance of $495. My credit score was 502. I felt horrible and embarrassed. But my friend James introduced me to DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION, a credit repair company and they helped me to raise my credit score to 810 excellent standard and deleted all negative items on my credit report within 8 days. He also helped me increase my credit card limit to $15,000 and placed some good tradelines on my report. DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION is the best amongst all, and his service is fast, secured and reliable without stress. Contact him by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM / +1 (713) 396 5299, for any kind of credit repair. They’re swift in responding to any question.

  28. Hi everyone, all thanks to PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. Been a long time lucker and finally gotten to where I can come to terms with my credit situation, and they’ll fix it for me. Went through a divorce and then the pandemic was rough. My score was: EQ: 516, TU: 513, EX 539 FICO 8, Inquiries: EQ2, TU:5, There was an inquiry on my TU that I don’t recognize from synchrony financial that I was asking to have removed. While in the process of beginning to tackle debt, the transmission in my car went out. I went without a car for as long as possible, before financing a car. I was able to employ PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST who helped me increase my scores to EQ: 802, TU: 807, EX: 811 excellent score within 9 days. He also paid all the debt on my credit report. I really appreciate the help, this is my first post, and I apologize for the wall of text. My goal is to solidify my relationship with NFCU which has been achieved and I’m now qualified for a mortgage. Contact him now by email: pinnaclecreditspecialist@gmail.com / Text him +1 (409) 231-0041.

  29. After my marriage 3 months ago, I applied for a home loan, so that my wife and I could move to a better apartment, but I got a negative reply, which I was told was because of my credit score. When I pulled my score, it was below average. I have a $10,000 student loan, some credit card debt, charge-off and an eviction. PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST helped me erase all the above negative reports and boosted my score to excellent within 6 days. I’m recommending them to any person in need of credit assistance. Contact them by email: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM OR their mobile: +1 (409) 231-0041.

  30. I wanted to purchase a car months ago, but I wasn’t approved for a loan, I needed a score of at least 700 to be approved for the loan, but my score was at 529. I had many hard inquiries, collections, late payments, unpaid debts and eviction. I contacted this life saver called PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST; they helped me wipe all the negative items and raised my score to 811 across the three credit bureaus. It’s been 2 weeks now and nothing is coming back. Call their number +1 (409) 231-0041. Or text them by email: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM

  31. PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST remains the best credit expertise I have known. I had a mortgage loan on my credit report and 4 CC and AAoA 7.5yrs. I filed bankruptcy 5 years ago and settled with all of these. My credit score was EX-541, TU-564, EQ-591. My attention was called that they are still on my reports I recently got referred by my wife to hire PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST which I did, and he helped me fix my credit and increase my credit score to EQ-808, EX-802, TU-805. I recommend PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST to anyone that needs to fix his/her credit to go through with PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM / +1 (409) 231-0041. He is just the best. Kudos to the entire team.
