Karina Karina said: " As I was reading her autobiography, I remembered I bought this book of her letters a few years ago... I thought it would help to get more in depth, and I wasn't wrong! I was especially looking for letters between Therese and Celine, when Therese ente ...more "

"The novitiate which she barely written about in the Story of a Soul... these letters give more insight on how difficult the father's illness was on her and the rest of the sisters. // LT92 to Marie Guerine is beautiful, advising on the reception of Communion when Marie felt she'd be committing sacrilege."

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
"You can also find this review on my blog, Cait's Corner!

First things first: This almost never happens, but I have to admit that I cried at the end of this book; I clutched my cute little kitty-kat and bawled.

However, I didn't cry because of what..." Read more of this review »

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

I got back to my apartment in Bulgaria and thought I'd read a little bit of this novel before I went to bed. 2 hours later I was still sat in my original position but by this time I was sobbing my heart out. Literally sat there crying like a baby..." Read more of this review »

This book was recommended by my mother-in-law and I knew nothing about it but when I had a free moment I picked it up and read straight through. I cried, twice. It really pulls you in.
Games Wizards Play by Diane Duane
"I started reading this series when I was in middle school and reread the first four books countless times, so when I won a Twitter contest to be a named character in this book I was ECSTATIC. (Rivka added the relevant pages (no spoilers) to her re..." Read more of this review »

I just about inhaled this book. It’s way longer than others in the series but it didn’t feel drawn-out. This book’s focus seemed to be more on dealing with unpleasant people... It was set in our solar system, very few aliens present. Nita was finding ...more

I bought this over a year ago, read about half then got busy. It wasn’t the best of the series but then these are just a few shorter “interim” stories between the main ones. I had enjoyed the second story (from what I recall) with Filif a wizard look ...more

Another glimpse into the Elfhome story. I rate it 4 stars because these are all short stories which I like less than full-length novels, but they are good and are arranged more or less in the order of the timeline. It’s nice to see the story from the ...more
