I ended up LOVING it!!! One of the best books I've read in a very, very long time....more

First time I've "read" this as an audiobook, rather than a physical book. The reader did an amazing job, however, and really made the different characters come to life through their accents.

And of course, the story is every bit as captivating as alwa...more

This book had me hooked already on page two, when I discovered that at least some witches in this universe wrote witching spells using computer code! As an IT consultant myself, this was something that immediately appealed to me and I fell instantly...more

Loved this just as much as I had expected to, but without giving too much away, I think it would be a very hard read for somebody struggling with infertility.

But to me, it was still a comfort book. Debora Geary writes love so well, and I'm looking ve...more

Shannon (Giraffe Days) Hi, I'm mailing you that book today, Thunderwith by Libby Hathorn (it finally arrived yay!) - let me know when you get it so I know it didn't get lost in the mail! I hope you enjoy it, it's one of my favourites and also one of the first books I ever owned, so it has extra sentimental value (it was a surprise buy from my mum who knew how much I loved it. She didn't often do things like that. Couldn't afford to. So it was doubly sweet). If you don't like it, well, we'll never be friends again! Ha no not really, but I think you'll like it.


Maria M. Elmvang Excellent! Thank you :) I can't wait to read it. The author sounds familiar... I'll have to see if I've read anything else by her or am just mixing her up with somebody else.

I think I'll like it too - we tend to share tastes otherwise, so I think it's a relatively safe bet :)


Nightfalltwen You changed your user picture! Looks great!

:D


Margaret Your interests and favorites do seem right up there with mine. I do love the Barenstein Bears. These new ones are especially fabulous by the son of the original authors Mark Barenstein. They are all directly Christian messages. They are just great.


rameau Learning to agree to disagree is a rare talent that should be cultivated. Thank you for the friend request. Glad to accept.
