Lilli de Jong: A Novel | Janet Benton

#24B4Monday. I am a little late to the party as I would be IRL...😁My plan is to finish Lilli de Jong and Anne of Windy Poplars. HP is my current audiobk so will listen while cleaning and quilting and start Hild for #LitsyAToZ. I have failed miserably the last two times I tried a readathon so maybe third times the charm 🤷🏻‍♀️ I am off to work but hope to get in some time tonight. Happy Friday everyone.

I was reading and found the quote, “Raw Tension Smoldered between them“, this quote really shows how much tension is between them during the argument.

Dear sweet Helen, I definitely fancy a buddyread of Wolf Hall for #Booked2020 #LiveAndLearn 🤓You‘re the BEST!!! Thanks for the lovely card and gifts!!!! I‘m very excited for my study guide, since I know ZERO English History😬 Looking Forward xx

squirrelbrain I also know nothing about that period of English history! 😳 Looking forward to a #buddyread! 8h
TrishB I‘ll be so interested to see what you think of this. It‘s a difficult writing style and I suspect may be even more difficult if you don‘t know the history! Study guide is a great idea. I‘m very excited about the final one next year. 8h

This book made perfect sense after the unfortunate events in the previous book. And to be honest, I loved the idea of seeing Constance & yes, even Norma & Fleurette, take charge of a ladies' Army camp. But most of the book actually seemed more concerned w/Beulah Binford. While she is really interesting, it felt like I was reading 2 separate books at once, which was hard, but it came together at the end. I really hope that the series continues!

During the reign of Nazis, there were a handful of German circuses who were still allowed to travel and perform. Some circus owners hid Jews who, in return, were trained as performers with name changes and documentation. This is brilliantly done historical fiction.

I REALLY enjoyed this book! It held my attention the entire time and I finished it within 2 days because I had a hard time putting it down. I felt it to be the perfect ending.

BarbaraTheBibliophage Great cover! This was a terrific book! 15h

It's a nice Christmas story for the whole family to enjoy. Charles Dickens is having a midlife crisis at Christmas time, and his publishers are demanding a Christmas novel when everything in his life is falling apart. When Silva is not decorating the page with her verbosity, she tells a pretty good story about Dickens‘ internal struggle.

#MOvember Poor Lilli, pregnant, unmarried and alone she decides she‘s going to keep her baby. That‘s not easy 1883! I thought I would love this book, but the timing was off for me. Book is in hibernation but I hope to try again. #PapaDontPreach

TrishB There are a lot of hibernating books on Litsy 😁 (edited) 1d
Cinfhen Yup!!! But that‘s ok, books need to rest too!! @TrishB (edited) 1d
