Reading Update and Reviews: 4/10/23

It’s been a busy past couple of weeks!

We commemorated the death of Jesus this past Tuesday, we always do it on the day that corresponds to Nisan 14 every year. Our congregation had a great turnout. We had a campaign inviting everyone locally. My husband had the privilege of doing the Memorial talk and he did a wonderful job. I am so proud of him. More importantly, it was a great time to meditate on what Jesus did and is still doing for us.

I didn’t get much reading done.

Since I last posted I read a horrible book Same Beach, Next Year by Dorothea Benton Frank. I stayed with it because it was recommended to me. But the core issue in the book ..ugh. It was basically two couples who summered together every year and two of them were in love with the other’s spouse. It was more of an emotional affair. What made it worse was the other spouses knew about it – and kinda… tolerated it. This book was not for me and I should have DNF’d it. I just got more and more annoyed as the book went on and when it ended I just felt…ugh.

I DNF’d Pillars of the Earth. I just didn’t like it.

I read and enjoyed :

I gave this 4 stars!

I really enjoyed this!

After reading a bad book and DNFing another I was in a bit of a reading slump. This was the palate cleanser I needed. It’s fitting a fairy tale retelling brought me out of my slump. Hopeful, idealistic…

I like Odette’s writing, it is very accessible and I felt myself immersed in the story. I looked forward to reading this book at the end of my busy days.


Next up I believe I am going to be doing a buddy read with my Husband. A YA trilogy that he has been enjoying. What is it? Stay tuned!
