I have started Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. Thank you for your list. I have been in a book club recently, but unfortunately the books have been of the creepy and disturbing kind. I have decided that is not something that I should continue to read, even if it is for a book club. I will check out the books on your list.

My first book of the year will be The Gentle Art Of Domesticity by Jane Brocket. I'm currently waiting for it to arrive. I will be adding a few books from your list to mine. Happy reading!

Wow - that is quite a list - good for you! I read some of the same ones, including the books by Hillary Manton Lodge. I enjoyed listening to you read The Happy Hollisters aloud this summer! The most memorable books that I read during 2018 are: Soulful Simplicity by Courtney Carver, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls (1&2) by Elena Favelle and Francesca Cavallo, and the Day the World Came to Town: 9/11 in Gander, Newfoundland by Jim Defede. I also enjoyed starting The Darling Dahlias series about life and mysteries in a small southern town during the Great Depression. Happy reading in 2019!

This year I have 3 Books that I plan to make sure I aim to read. I really didn't do well last year due to many life changes. I am book lover so not reading the amount I'm used was hard. Anyway I plan to read Mere Christianity by C.S.Lewis and Celebrations od Discipline by Richard Foster then I plan to read choose an author from my home state to read.

This reminds me that I still want to read Chasing Slow.

And I think Humble Roots is the one you mentioned to me this summer?

Please tell me more about butterfly violin one you recommended on my post.

I loved 'The Gurnsey Potato Peel Pie and Literary Society' - it's pipped my interest again in British war time stories - so I hope to find some more of this ilk this year. I always read James Herriot through the winter, and Eliabeth Goudge The scent of Water will be somewhere in there too :)
