One of the perks of writing books is getting a blog on Goodreads!

2017 was a good reading year for me. Perhaps because I considered it a year of rereading. Out of 108 books, 44 were rereads. About half of these were Shakespeare and though I had the goal of listening to all of his plays in Arkangel Audio editions in 2017, I only made it almost halfway. I will rename that bookshelf 2017-2018 and... Read more of this blog post »

(Update: I listened to the Arkangel recording in November of 2018. I liked the play better this time around and so I am upping my stars from 2 to 3.)


This is one of my least favorite plays. I am not sure why but maybe it is because I did not like the

Vanishing Grace by Philip Yancey
"I gave Yancey's book Disappointment with God: Three Questions No One Asks Aloud five stars, but after much thought can only assign two to this read. Yes, I know I am in the minority with this rating but let me explain.

Yancey is an excellent writer..." Read more of this review »

"650 PAGES IS TOO MANY PAGES FOR A MYSTERY NOVEL.

That being said, JKR puts together a damn good mystery and I loved all of the actual mystery parts of this story. She is the *best* at creating great and interesting and fun characters. (More Barcla..." Read more of this review »

Long awaited entry in the Cormoran Strike series by JK Rowling. I am conflicted about this book. Rowling is a very good writer, obviously, but this book got off to a slow start and went on for a very long time. I was not really that interested in all ...more

Hello, Harriet Vane. We don't know you very well yet, but we will.

I am not sure how many times I have read this but it was even more enjoyable this time because of my trip to England.
I have now walked some of the streets mentions and could visualize

“I quote much scripture in this book. I do so intentionally, without references, because that is how I believe scripture should fit into the fabric of our lives. It is not tacked on; it is woven in.”
Cindy Rollins, Mere Motherhood: Morning times, nursery rhymes, and my journey toward sanctification

“We will always have Narnia.”
Cindy Rollins, Mere Motherhood: Morning times, nursery rhymes, and my journey toward sanctification

“Motherhood is a place of dreamy hopes and crushed fantasies and the hard, hard work of sinners in relationship with each other day by day.”
Cindy Rollins, Mere Motherhood: Morning Times, Nursery Rhymes, & My Journey Toward Sanctification

“Every week I counsel young people from solid Christian homes who are undone by their sin. As parents, we are sometimes more invested in protecting our children from the sinful influences of this world than we are in preparing them for the deep sinfulness of their own hearts.”
Barbara R. Duguid, Extravagant Grace: God's Glory Displayed in Our Weakness

“Tell the truth, but understand that it is not necessarily what happened,” is one of the things she told him. “Every good story is a parable,” is another.”
Bret Lott, Letters and Life: On Being a Writer, On Being a Christian

“[About the main character approaching death in old age, observed by her husband . . .] He saw that she had already laid down a large portion of her life long ago. Piece by piece she had given it away as she wrestled with existence, as her self was absorbed as nourishment into his life and the life of the children and the community. And laid down most piercingly, as she abandoned, one by one, the shapes of the dreams she had planned. Only to take them up again in other forms.”
Michael D. O'Brien, Strangers and Sojourners

“Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

“There is more reason to say grace before beginning a book than there is to say it before beginning to dine.”
Charles Lamb
