Book Forty-Nine

My goal for several years has been to read 50 books in one calendar year – 52 weeks – but I have always fallen off the rails around 25 books. This year, I’m twice as determined. I will be posting short reviews of each book with my thoughts and any recommendations I received for the book as well as a link to purchase the book from Amazon, (though I recommend checking your local library first). If you have questions, leave a comment! If you want to follow my journey, find me on Goodreads.

Binge reading cheesy Christmas novels at the end of the year is my new thing. This also came off the list Donna sent me in October. I bought the large-print edition (oops) from Book Depository. I felt like I was reading on my phone again (throwback to all those multi-country travel days on the Race) because I had to flip pages so often.

Kingsbury ties this short & sweet novel to an independent bookstore in Franklin, Tennessee that brings hope, healing, and connection to all its patrons. The characters prayed a lot and the two young-and-in-love characters quoted a ton of Jane Eyre, which seemed a little odd to me. Overall it was really sweet. Tennessee has a special place in my heart (and so do bookstores) so this was a joy to read.
