I have been doing more sewing, less reading but loved the new book from Laurie Frankel which I found through Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Anne Bogel-she is right- don’t read anything about it just pick up the book and read it. I loved the writing and the characters and the author’s very personal viewpoint on the subject matter. After reading the book, I read the Modern Love piece she wrote about her own experience which is worth a read but read the book first. I also really appreciated Deep Work-another MMD recommendation- and am currently working on implementing some of the suggestions into my life. I listened to a great audio version of Persuasion and finally finished Gilead which I had started and never finished many times. I loved it but I think I loved Lila more. A big goal for me this year is to read more classics and more books I already own so I am glad to be making progress on those fronts. What are you reading and loving?

Hi I have both Gilead and Lila on my tbr. Which would you read first?
Probably Gilead but they can be read in any order. They are beautiful books.
Reading more classics and books I own are my priorities this year as well. Did you like The Greenglass House?
Hi Laura, The Greenglass House wasn’t what I expected. It felt more like a children’s book. I enjoyed it but didn’t love love it. Julie
