Theodora's Diary: Faith, Hope and Chocolate

Saturday 8th May. Emergency! It is 11:30 p.m. and I am suffering from an incredibly intense chocolate craving that will not leave me in spite of prayer, distraction activities and half a loaf of bread and butter. Got out of bed and searched the flat. No luck. Not even a bourbon biscuit. Not even a cream egg left from Easter. All the shops are closed so no nipping out to re ...more

Very cute book! Theodora talks about her spirituality and applies it to everything going on in her life. It is amusing, light-hearted and fun!

I was skeptical about this book--fearing it would be sort of "churchy-preachy" and not very entertaining. Wrong! It's a fun read--I actually laughed aloud in several spots and smiled quite a bit throughout. There are some very colorful characters, and the Theodora is someone you can't help but like. Four stars!

We all need a little fluff every once and a while and some Christian fiction with a side of fluff is a nice diversion!

A Christian "Bridget Jones" -- but much better than Bridget Jones could ever be. I greatly enjoyed it.

Theodora is a thirty-something Christian searching for her ministry. This book follows a year in her life. Theodora is a smart, witty character who made me laugh. I especially liked the church bulletin typos and accidental puns that only Theodora seemed to notice. The secondary characters were well-developed for the most part, and I felt as if they were real people. The only character I would have liked more depth from was Theodora's obsessed-with-football (soccer) love interest, Kevin. I wasn't ...more

There's never a dull moment with this book and I really loved the humor. Not once did I find myself covering my face with the book at the MRT because of letting about a bahaha laughter. For the most part, the book is entertaining and a great companion to solitary moments.

Interesting so far, I thought it would be like Bridget Jones Diary but it has some religious talk so I'm not sure if I'm going to finish reading it. There are 2 other books in the series though so I'm hoping they tone down the religious talk. I'll keep you posted :)

This book was okay for me. A bit much with the christianity in it, but I did like the some of the girl humor in it. Loved the fact that when all else fails- there is always chocolate!

Very funny book about a single woman in Britian who is very active in her local church. The church bullitan is full of hilarious gaffes. I really liked this book a lot.

I actually never finished this book - I just couldn't get into it. It was really quite funny in spots but there was just nothing to keep me coming back to it...

I couldn't even finish it... just dragged through, and finally realized I was not liking it... so I stopped!

A Christian Bridget Jones - funny makes you smile at those Christian cliches.
