The Book Devotions

First book reviews of 2024

Published 2 months ago • 1 min read

Hi, Reader!

I'm here to share my latest batch of book reviews with you.

If you're new around here, I always review the books I've read at the end of each month, and every month, it's like...

This month, I finally read Tress of the Emerald Sea by Brandon Sanderson, and it did NOT disappoint!

I also read a SLEW of children's fiction, but don't bail on me just yet—many of the books are worthy of your adult reading time, too. Especially Twenty and Ten by Claire Huchet Bishop.

Currently reading:

  • The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen (audio)
  • The Luminous Life of Lucy Landry by Anna Rose Johnson (digital)
  • Plus, one fairy tale per day starting tomorrow. Remember, if you want to opt OUT of the Fairy Tale February emails, click here!
Righteousness exalts a nation,
but sin is a reproach to any people.
–Proverbs 14:34
