Jane Austen Book Club

I joined a book club!!!!

I found it on this handy dandy website called (Thanks Chanel!!!) There are tons of groups that explore tons of interest or hobbies and they are in most in city you can imagine. Great way to meet new people and share similar interest !

As you might have guessed from the title of this post it's a Jane Austen Book Club!!!!

It's basically all things Jane Austen or Related to Jane Austen. Our First meeting was today and I really think it's gonna be awesome.

We are gonna start with The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler just to kinda get a premise of where our "leader" got the idea for this meet up.

Movie adaptations of books will also be explored and at our first meeting, books about Jane Austen's life were also a suggestion. Who knows, where it will all go!

If anyone in Nashville area is interested you can find all the info here.

I'm for one excited and can't wait to get started!!!

Visit your local library as often as possible this month to show your love!

Library Lovers Month gives all us a chance to recognize and express our appreciation for all that our libraries and librarians do for us year round. Libraries are an amazing source for knowledge, entertainment, and company.

Never the Bride

Since she was young Jessie Stone has religiously journaled about the perfect marriage proposals, her perfect husband, the perfect wedding and the perfect marriage.

But at 34 years of age, she still hadn't gotten anything she dreamed of. She just hopelessly watch as other couples got their dream weddings and such, while she was just a bridesmaid.

Until one day God showed up!

What will it take to convince her that God has a better plan for her than she could ever dream up?

This book actually hit on a few personal spots for me. I really related to Jessie in so many ways it was a little scary.

But in the end, it helped.

At the beginning of the story Jessi is so uptight and worried about everything being perfect but God shows here that she just need to have faith in him and everything will work out the way it should.

I think everyone struggles with faith in God and it usually gets in his way.

As far as , the writing goes in this book it was a little dry and some places and was a little hard to get in to. But over all it wasn't the worse book ever written either!

This book was both a quick and slow read, in the beginning it was hard to get into and seemed like it took forever to get to half way point but once you were there I couldn't put it down!

I'd recommend it to anyone that love romance novels ( despite Jessie's lack of love life there is plenty of romance! ), especially those that like Christan Romance Novels.
