Booknificent Thursday #2 – The Best Book I Read This Week… — 15 Comments

  1. Thank you for such a lovely review. I absolutely agree with you on the synopsis. There simply isn’t any way to write one without giving away SOMETHING.

    I also agree with you on my characters. They do things I’d never agree with either. Sometimes they do things I wish I had the strength of character to do. I’d love to be able to forgive as Mac did. I wouldn’t save my first kiss for 150 onlookers to share. I don’t wear only dresses like Aggie or say whatever comes to mind like Chessie. They just aren’t my choices. But I learn things from them–even if it’s only how to deal with people like them! 😉

    Thanks again for such a wonderful review.


    • Ha! You picked many of the same things about your characters that I would have! 🙂 The only other one I would add is the way Chad so often goes to his parents before talking with Willow when they have a disagreement. That and how willing they were to interfere drove me crazy in Past Forward, book 4! Now to be fair, we should list all the things we love about your characters and do agree with, but then we’d be here all week! 🙂 I really do adore your characters. I can’t tell you how many times in the last few weeks I’ve thought of Willow and her “milking machine” as I spend quality time with mine trying to increase my supply! I cannot see myself picking fruit while pumping in a million years! How I laughed at that scene, read, of course, while I was pumping!!!

      Thanks so much, Chautona, for stopping by and commenting! You have made my day. Blessings to you (and write faster)! 🙂

  2. The books I read this week are, The Secret in the Swamp, Thea Stilton and the Mystery in Paris, Thea Stilton and the Secret City, and Too Many Treasures. Too Many Treasures is my favorite book this week. It’s about two kids whose parents go on business trips. They stay with relatives and solve mysteries.

  3. I didn’t read the whole review either. But I did love that you two eldest daughters wrote in on your blog!! 😀

  4. Well, I followed directions and skipped over your review too as I hope to read this one as well. 🙂

    Books I read this week are I Remember Nothing by Nora Ephron and The Borrowers by Mary Norton. Nora’s memoir was interesting but also quite depressing. That was the first book of a book club I just joined so it started some great discussion. I loved The Borrowers (again)! I hadn’t read that since I was little, but it was really great. And it won the Carnegie back in the 50s when it came out which I believe is the British equivalent to the Newbery.

    • You’re such a good direction-follower! 🙂 I think you’ll like this book a lot. I hope you do get a chance to read it. Her books remind me a bit of Lori Wick, but I think I like them better because she never has cookie-cutter anything.

      Thanks for sharing what you read this week. I think it’s so fun to hear what people are reading.
