Each weekend, I like to share articles or posts that I consider noteworthy during my week of reading (blogs or otherwise around the web), whether they encourage, challenge, inspire, or just flat-out make me laugh. Sometimes these are “current” links (recently written), and sometimes they’re older articles that I just happened to stumble upon in the past week. I also try to share a little something about the book(s) I’m currently reading. I hope you enjoy!
Around the Web:
“The Audacity of Cinderella” by Rebecca Reynolds, from the Rabbit Room – This review perfectly, delightfully summarized exactly why I completely adored the new Cinderella movie. Spot on and made me teary just reading it.
“My Favorite Things to Buy at Trader Joe’s” by Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs. Darcy – Makes me wish we had a TJ’s in our town!
In honor of Jonathan Crombie and his tragic death this month, 25 Times Gilbert Blythe Melted Your Heart.
On My Nightstand:
I recently finished I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith and, not surprisingly, adored it. One of the most original and captivating narrators I have ever encountered in fiction.
I also finished The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte by Syrie James last week and, surprisingly, didn’t love it, even though I really, really wanted to. More thoughts on this later!
Currently reading: The Art of Work by Jeff Goins, Jesus Feminist by Sarah Bessey, Notes from a Blue Bike by Tsh Oxenreider, The Irrational Season by Madeleine L’Engle, and The Lost Sisterhood by Anne Fortier.
Currently re-reading: Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist (highlighter working overtime on this re-read!), The Story Within by Laura Oliver, and The Wheel on the School by Meindert DeJong (my pick for the “book from your childhood” category for the MMD Reading Challenge).
