A Quiet Life
Author @joellawriting may just succeed in a rare feat and have both of his books in my top yearly picks!
Absolutely no sophomore slump going on here. Dare I say, A Quiet Life is even better!?
Ethan understands human relationships and how desperately we need them. I was engaged in these characters (3 from various stages of life kind of stuck and dealing with some difficult circumstances) from the beginning. When I wasn't reading I missed them and was in a hurry to get back to the book!
This book feels like a warm hug that you read on a cold winter day with a hot beverage.
“Be a Cardinal”
I’m not great at painting birds but couldn’t resist painting a cardinal to go with this one. I think Cat would be proud.
I’ll have a more complete review soon, but wanted to make sure this book was on people’s radar as it’s a @bookofthemonth add on. It also comes out TOMORROW 11/29.
