Tweet-Style Reviews of What I've Been Reading

Since my last Twitterature round-up, I've kept up my stellar reading pace - thank goodness that 2014 continues to roll smoothly along! I felt really frustrated by how little I was reading late last year, but due to the nursing baby and a bunch of good books to review, I've been enjoying myself a lot recently. Here are some very short reviews of what I've been reading!

Why Kings Confess by C.S. Harris. Have SUCH a crush on Sebastian (Lord Devlin). This series of regency murder mysteries gets better & better. #frenchrevolution #bourbons

Murder in Pigalle by Cara Black. Weird to start so far into a series. But enjoyed it. Excited to see Cara Black at the TFOB next month! #paris

7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker. SO GOOD. Convicting AND hilarious. Go read it. In related news, upped our World Vision contributions & bought reusable applesauce pouches.

Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield. Took forever to get into, but liked it (on audio). Not sure if I would've finished the print edition. Oddly haunting, but also just odd.

Death in Sardinia by Marco Vichi. Set in 1960s Florence & Sardinia. Made me think about post-war Italy in whole new way. Likeable detectives, will read more of this series!  

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. I'm late to the game, amazingly it lived up to all the hype. I DEVOURED this book. Highly recommended! #ww2 #iwanttoreaditagainalready

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling. The Young Adult Book and Movie Club continues! I'm loving the discussion and as always enjoying Harry and his friends' shenanigans. #yabmc

The Very Fairy Princess Follows Her Heart by Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton. Have read this book eleventy billion times now & still think it's cute. It's a winner! Have also read many other cute V-Day Picture Books.

Notes from a Blue Bike by Tsh Oxenreider. Halfway through this book on intentional living, in spite of a culture "where the prevailing mark of a good day is getting a lot done".
