Happy Easter everyone!! And if you don’t celebrate..happy Sunday!!
I just wanted to hop (pun intended hehe) in and say a quick hello! I hope all of your weekends have been awesome. On Friday I came back from class and found a package sitting on my porch from the super awesome Lindsay.
I was completely touched by her gesture. I’ve expressed to Lindsay several times where I am at with regard to my faith and the fact that she thought of me and sent me a book that she thinks is perfect for where I am at (and after starting it I 100% agree!) is so kind, selfless, and amazing of her! Thank you Lindsay!! 😀 ❤
Speaking of books…I also downloaded a new book this weekend! I originally saw this book mentioned on Paige’s blog and was intrigued, and then I saw on Chelsey’s instagram photo that she was going to start reading it this weekend too and I was even more curious!
I’m not really a Stephen King fan because generally his books are more scary and just not for me. However, after I read the synopsis I new that I HAD to read it. And it’s really long – over 800 pages – which is awesome for me because I read really fast. So good news, this will take at least a few days to finish ;).
Here’s the synopsis from Good Reads:
On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed forever.
If you had the chance to change the course of history, would you?
Would the consequences be worth it?
Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program. He receives an essay from one of the students—a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night 50 years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer. Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk.
Not much later, Jake’s friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insane—and insanely possible—mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK, of big American cars and sock hops, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jake’s life—a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time.
Explore the Possibilities..
Um yea…I’m already about 100 pages in and it’s awesome! Last night I enjoyed a glass of wine and snuggled up with my book on the couch…and some ice for my hips was thrown in there too haha.
I hope you all have an amazing day!
