A short story about what happens when 16 year old Geraldine discovers she is pregnant. The available options in the 60s. Choices. Decisions. Moving on. Coming full circle. Short. Intense. Incredible character development for such a short story!

Beautiful historical fiction! A London bookshop owner, recently widowed, is asked to take on a Jewish refuge child. Gertie reluctantly agrees, and 15 year old Hedy arrives. Through teenage angst, language barriers, and air raids, a bond forms between Gertie and Hedy, but what happened to Hedy's parents and brother? A story of sacrifice, love, loss, how books can save lives, more love, and... Loved it!

This book deserves as many stars as Simone has medals! I love the LPBD series so much, but this might be the most impactful, important, one I've read! I just watched an interview with Simone, she was talking about her mental health struggles & the abuse from Larry Nassar. This book speaks simply, but powerfully about these issues. Appropriately so for younger children. Two incredibly important topics to bring awareness to! Bravo, a beautiful book!

John Muir's Little Book of Essential Quotations is essential for any tree hugging, forest loving, bookish reader out there! I was reading another book and the author referenced John Muir and several of his quotes. Don't you just love it when one book leads you to other books you must read?!?

I am a self-professed tree hugging, forest bathing, book lover, & lifelong reader. I've always been drawn to the woods, I need trees to survive. It turns out I'm not alone in feeling this way! Beautifully illustrated & full of interesting facts, plus hints & tips to creating a personalized experience for yourself & perhaps others. I enjoyed this book so much (thanks to Net Galley) that I have pre-ordered a hardcover copy when it releases in June.

Set in St Helier, Jersey
during the nazi occupation of the channel islands... The Wartime Book Club is a story of how books, & ordinary people doing extraordinary things can save lives! A story of bravery and survival, of commitment and dedication, of friendship & love. Of family, and what makes up a family. I enjoyed this book so much! Side note... I would love to see this story. Continue with Grace's granddaughter Poppy, & her island bookstore!

Mix one dry sense of humor, a dollop or two of nostalgia, a large dose of insight, a handful of appreciation, and a penchant for honesty, and you end up with this delectable morsel of a book! It is impossible to listen to these sexy descriptions of food without wanting to cook and eat your way through this book. So be warned,(cont in comments)

2 thumbs up, 5 stars, best read of 2024, and it will be hard to beat! Disclaimer: I've never been overly interested in the royals, never really followed what was going on outside of what made I headines. I didn't listen to this book when it first came out, there was so much talk about it that I didn't want it to influence my thoughts and again, I was just never that overly interested. Several people personally recommended this(cont in comments)...

TheHeartlandBookFairy book so I thought I would give it a chance. I'm so glad I did! Harry often speaks about not feeling normal. News flash, IMO, he's the most normal royal there is! He has a wonderful sense of humor, a kind and compassionate heart, & easily speaks about and shows his feelings and emotions. Not traits the Brits are commonly known for but traits that made him more endearing to me, more normal, more human. I know there are 2 sides to every story. And in this book we hear Harry's side. The other side, the rest of the Royals,
has been given to us through carefully curated press releases and sound bites that never seem real and authentic to me. I personally enjoyed listening to this audio book far more than I ever expected & I would highly recommend listening to Harry himself read the audio version. I will miss listening to harry's voice on my commute each day...

A story of going home, of starting over, of villagers coming together to support one another, and for the common good. Feel good vibes and heartwarming fellowship.

The Library of Congress sends librarian Emmy Clarke overseas to Germany to help retrieve and catalog a vast collection of literature plundered by the nazis. Emmy becomes intrigued when she finds a book with personal messages inside and his compelled to return it to the rightful owner. What follows is a gripping story of resistance, betrayal, survival, and love.

I have started and failed to complete this book on more than one occasion. It just wasn't engaging me. It lingered in my started, but not finished Kindle books and seemed to be taunting me every time I saw it. This year was the year I was going to finish it and do some clearing of the kindle. I think when I initially ordered the book (years ago), I thought it was gonna be more of a daily devotional, like one minute a day with(cont in comments)...

TheHeartlandBookFairy minute a day with God. That's not what this is. I pushed through this year and did find several areas that thoroughly engaged me. But the overall message to me seemed to be one of "believe big and pray hard and it will happen." I struggle with this because it seems that the flip side then would be "if it doesn't happen, you didn't believe big enough or pray hard enough." To be fair, I do believe that I have had at least one "one minute with God" myself. I do believe that happens! But overall, this book was not the inspirational read that I was looking or hoping for... 4mo

The principal event in Never Too Late is a July 4th New York City attack even greater than 911. Although I'm not excited to entertain the notion of another attack on that scale, the rest of the book was pretty enjoyable.

Eye opening to see the things that might be holding someone back and the idea of it never being too late to follow (cont in comments)...

In my opinion, this is Lynn Austin's BEST book yet! The era, the story; stunning scene descriptions and a story so beautifully told. The character development is phenomenal! An intricately woven tale of three generations of Stanhope women, set in New York during the "Gilded Era". Two great loves, 2 great loves lost. So many "lessons". Junietta, Sylvia, and Adelaide work through grief (so realistically written!) Cont in comments

I have 3 favorite quotes from this book, two of them have a very personal meaning to me: "The memories don't live in the house, they're in your heart.", "Death brings the end of so many dreams that we have for ourselves and our loved ones.", and "Love is a greater legacy to leave than wealth." .I was deeply touched by this story, the adversity, the injustice, the revelations, the growth, the enlightenment, the triumph.
