Book cover for The Wendy (Tales of the Wendy, #1)
So, Wendy had a tutor and a friend and as many books as she could read. That would have been all she ever needed if she could have remained a child forever, but all children grow up.

I liked the kinds of things she said in this book, like your house should tell your story, but this book didn’t help me figure out how to do that. All the pictures of overly clean and empty spaces made me uncomfortable after a while.

4 1/2 stars. I was tempted to knock this back to 4 stars, just because of some hesitation about the accuracy of a few places in the book, but there's just too much good and heart changing here to rate it less. I do recommend, as always, checking the ...more

Raquel Evans added a status update: 7 hours and 30 minutes of reading ( give or take—I had a couple timer malfunctions) for the 24in48 readathon this weekend. I thought I might just hit 8 hours so it’s unfortunate to come just short, but I finished one book in progress, read two manga, made a chunk of audio progress, and got 75 pages into another book. A good reading weekend for sure.

Susan Cain
“We know from myths and fairy tales that there are many different kinds of powers in this world. One child is given a light saber, another a wizard's education. The trick is not to amass all the different kinds of power, but to use well the kind you've been granted.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Ellis Peters
“It's a kind of arrogance to be so certain you're past redemption.”
Ellis Peters, A Morbid Taste for Bones

Susan Cain
“There's zero correlation between being the best talker and having the best ideas.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Susan Cain
“So stay true to your own nature. If you like to do things in a slow and steady way, don't let others make you feel as if you have to race. If you enjoy depth, don't force yourself to seek breadth. If you prefer single-tasking to multi-tasking, stick to your guns. Being relatively unmoved by rewards gives you the incalculable power to go your own way.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
“If the Lord calls us to be a bridge, we have to learn to bear in his strength the weight. And it hurts. And it's good. And the Lord equips.”
Rosaria Champagne Butterfield, The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert: An English Professor's Journey Into Christian Faith
