    JoyfulIf circumstances were different right now, I probably would be ripping this book apart The characters are a little bit much and drove me crazy The cheese factor is through the roof However, it has a lovely message about finding joy, which is much needed right now Overall, it served as a pleasant escape during these difficult times.

    I almost don t know how to rate What You Wish For I ve been reading so many thrillers, full of gruesome body counts, so making the transition to a book with no murders, just a death by natural causes, seems a bit awkward to me On one hand, it s an awesome change of pace but on the other hand, I think I almost died of a too sweet and silly overdose I do think it was good to venture off the bloody reading path I ve been on latelyElementary school librarian Sa

    Never miss a chance to celebrate Katherine Center s latest novel, like all her novels, is utterly delightful While I ultimately preferred Things You Save in a Fire, I still stayed up until 3 AM finishing this story Once it gets going, it s hard to put down The theme, choosing joy, really resonates It s a lesson we should all take to heart Told entirely from Samantha s perspective, she s a quirky character trying desperately to come to terms with several life altering events Enter Duncan Never mis

    This is another one of those books that I hoped I would love I m a big fan of Things You Save In A Fire , but that was a much stronger book withto keep me interested.This novel starts very slowly as we get to know Sam, Samantha Casey, just at the time that the principal of her beloved elementary school passes away He wasn t just the principal, he and his wife were the life and breath of the school All of their ideas from many years poured into the school.The school year is going to sta This is another on
